Why wait for the perfect opportunity?



What a weekend! Definitely was one for the books. had the opportunity to attend a workshop that will forever change my life. The Daymond John Academy. The last couple of years have been very rough for me. Many personal changes were made, from friends, to priorities, to my vision on life. 

Sometimes we set ourselves to fail. Day and night I think to myself, about what mistakes I have made, where I went wrong. However I thank God and life for the mistakes, the struggles, and the battles. You are your true enemy and I mean that with all sincerity. We sometimes say no, it won’t be done, it can’t be done. We surround ourselves with negative people. People who want to see you fail. People who think there is no higher power, no other option, than the norm, the usual, the good ol routine. PSHHH!!!!!! Ya right. No way. Not for me. Don’t you agree? 

There are times we look at the obstacles like a challenge. DONT! STOP! You are hurting yourself. I have learned to look at the obstacles as an opportunity. There is no challenges but opportunity you can take advantage of. If you don’t know something, well learn about it. Read about it, ask about. It is ok to not know all the answers. What good would that be? Where is the fun in that? 

The future holds a very mysterious road for all of us. We don’t really know where we will be in 10 years, we can only set ourselves to a goal to achieve where we want to be in those 10 years. You need to set a plan, both personal and career/business plan. If you want to achieve greatness than start telling yourself you will do whatever it takes to get there.

I am super excited to share upcoming news with you all about some of the projects I am working on. I thank every single one of you that has been there with me from the beginning. You guys rock! 


Much love,

  1. Silvestre,
    Very insightful post! Right or wrong, we are each the sum total of our unique experiences, both good and bad. To throw out either would mean the loss of a part of who we are as individuals.
    Goals give us direction and sometimes the most powerful motivator is the person who continually tells us that we “can’t.”
    Press onward!

    • Those who doubt you are those who have a HUGE part of your success. As time goes by and you keep working at it, you tend to be striving to prove them wrong, and by the time you’ve reached milestones to be proud of, you’ve made it far along the road to success to keep on going.

      Much Love,


    • The workshop was awesome! So much insight how entrepreneur millionaires become and stay millionaires, even in hard times. How to run a successful business. It was a crash course given in 2-3 hours. However I am attending the 3 day workshop coming up this weekend. Will put up a post about it. Stay turned!

  2. Silvestre…my man in Cali,
    Good for you. I feel your pain as to having to re-arrange life to accommodate success. I have been accused of having the “lost puppy” syndrome. I like to help others, but they have to help themselves. I was helping people that didn’t want help and neglecting myself. In order to achieve, I even threw away my phone. It has been years since I have had a cell phone. Since that time, I have obtained multiple degrees and am now working on my masters degree.
    God forgive u our sins, but we can’t change the past…just make tomorrow better.
    You got soul, Cali…and love from A’ville,

  3. Shannon,
    We need to separate ourselves to find the things we haven’t found out yet about ourselves. Greatest thing you did and courageous thing you did was to get rid of your phone. Best of luck this semester!
