As I sit and reflect, it's clear why great mentors, such as Gary Vaynerchuk (known to his fans as Gary Vee), publishes a manifesto. Over the past 16 years, I've built a lifestyle through a simple strategy: hold others accountable to achieve success in work and in life. I've worked with many mentors and consultants over time, but, I realize one thing: no one holds me more accountable then the clients and audience I serve! This manifesto is a public declaration of my commitment to 2019’s aspirations and endeavors.

This Words Of Wisdom is extremely personal to me because this particular chapter in the Bible my mother instilled in me. I was her little prince and she wanted me to be a great man. The man I was destin to be. In high school nor college I never completely understood what she was teaching me in this chapter of Proverbs. Now that I’m 35, as I reflect on my life. I've realize she was speaking volumes, through this one chapter in the bible. Also as a father of 3 beautiful princesses & a son. I believe a future queen can follow the same principles my mother taught me.
The chapter starts, as a plead from a loving mother to her son and what it takes to be a great king...”The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him. What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?” ...As you read it, you can feel the deep love she has for her son. The true love of a great mother is irreplaceable!
She loved him unconditionally, she doesn’t want him to fall short from his destiny...”Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.” As a man, I can say our biggest weakness is the love for women and destructive vices when dealing with our emotions. Which ultimately can destroy our lives.
She goes on by explaining to him how important it is to stay away from these vices...”It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.” ...Think about it! If a man drinks while being in a bad emotional state, this normally leads to trouble. Drinking or any vices during an emotional time can alter our judgement and destroy our life.
The Way I See It...
As most great mothers, she tells us the reasons why? ”Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.” Why do we have these vices? Honestly to escape our world's problems. Not realizing, that our problems will be their tomorrow , if we don’t face it head on! Your going to still be miserable or poor when you wake up the next day.
So in closing, Lemuel’s Mother like all awesome moms gave him wise instructions. Simply said, if you give your ways to anyone (woman or man) or to any vice (drinking, drugs, sex, even work) your not being a wise king or queen of your life? Just Think About It!

Now Webster defines #Relationships as “The state of being related or interrelated. The relation of connecting or binding participants in a relationship: as kinship or a specific instance or type of kinship. A state of affairs existing between those having relations or dealings. A romantic or passionate attachment” A relationship is the key foundation block of your destiny and purpose in life. Without the right relationships in life, you will never obtain your dream or truly be happy. As humans we're designed to build relationships, never want to be alone. So how do we build solid credible relationships in life?
What is Love?... When we are truly engaged in giving and receiving love, we don’t ponder such philosophical questions. Our hearts take cues from our senses. Everything we see, hear, taste, touch or smell teaches us about our universe.
So when you meet a person who becomes your “universe”, you know your truly in love...The Hebrew word for love, ahavah, reveals this true definition of love, for the word ahavah is built upon the root consonants h‑v, which means “to give.” In order for love to be real love, it has to be expressed as an action…
