When I was 18, I was on top of the world with my music career. I had just signed my first Major Recording Deal with Atlantic records with my former band called "Ten City".
I had my mind set on being known in at least 4 countries by the age of 20 (by the age of 19 1/2, we were known in 28 countries).
The key to success is having a goal and sticking to it, no matter what it looks like, or what your friends or family members think.
When I was a little kid.. even as a teen, the most prominent thing that was on my mind was music! From listening to the radio, dancing, playing trumpet in Junior High School and deejaying. My life revolved around music. It was the only thing that gave me a peace of mind!
Just thinking back, that was the reason why I left High School to follow my dream. That leap of faith connected me with the people that had the same vision in regards to "Making it In the Music Industry".
That's the key... If you can see it in your mind or spirit... then that goal can be achieved because its a complete success in your mind.
Its like this... If you wanted to eat something right at this moment... what would that be? You would get a mental picture or a vision of that particular meal.. then its a matter of deciding what the steps will be to make it happen.
Remember.. You will do what you THINK you can do.
Now, the thing that will stop you from moving forward to achieve it would be doubt, fear, laziness and rejection (I'll get into the reason why rejection plays a major roll later).
Did you come up with something that you would like to eat at this moment? If so, do it now, then come back and finish reading the remainder of this blog........
Now was that so hard to do? No.. it was quite easy!
Why was that?
Everything was possible in your mind.. No doubt, fear.. Can you see that?
Your mind is very powerful and there are different forces that come against your mind to see the vision from happening. For it is written in the books of Ephesians 6:12 & 2 Corinthians 4:4.....
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Just THINK about this for a moment.....
Everything that you do, it starts with a thought, then what follows could be one of three things: 1. You say what you are thinking
2. You will move according to your feelings / mood. Or you will have a two way conversation with yourself wondering if you should do it or not.
Let me ask you a question.....
Have you ever wanted to take a trip to another state or country? If you haven't done it, what was the reason why it didn't take place?
Was it a matter of the lack of funds?
Not enough time?
I could list another 2,978 reasons why nots, but you can get the idea of where I'm going with this...
You must have a vision of your goal. It doesn't matter if you don't have all the details together on how its going to come all together. You just have to stay focus on the vision. For it's written in the books of Habakkuk 2: 2-3 & Proverbs 29:18.
Habakkuk 2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
Habakkuk 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
It doen't matter if you have a degree, High School Diploma, can't spell, can't write, can't read, married with children, age, color, race, state or country. Amen!
You have a vision that's deep within you. It up to you to see it through. You are the only one outside of God that understands it. If you let people decide your outcome, that's fine.. But the vision is yours to take it to the limit!
If I could show you something that can bring all of your hearts desires, would you take time to look at it? Or would you play the should I or shoulden't I conversation in your head?
People say.. "You are what you eat", but if you really look at it... The idea comes to your mind about what you want to eat... So with that said....
You are what you think!

LOS ANGELES, CA – From the world stage of the Olympics and NBA championships to the cosmic stage of life and death, former Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning will share his poignant story of survival as the keynote speaker for Crenshaw Christian Center’s (CCC) Spring Fling Family Fellowship at 10:00 am on Saturday, April 25th in the FaithDome located at 7901 S. Vermont Ave. in Los Angeles. The event is free and open to the public.
A new author, Mourning has penned a memoir titled “Resilience: Faith, Focus, Triumph.” “Resilience” tells Mourning’s story of how he went from foster care, to studying his way onto Georgetown University’s Deans List, to battling his way into superstar status in the NBA, to his ultimate challenge – being diagnosed with a rare degenerative kidney disease, Focal Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Mourning vowed to turn his crisis into an opportunity to help raise awareness about the disease; consequently, a kidney donor came forward to help him.
“Mr. Mourning’s story “Resilience” is about fighting the good fight of faith,” said Pastor Frederick K. Price Jr., the Head Pastor of CCC. “He encountered a defining moment in his life when he was diagnosed with FSGS. By facing this life-threatening disease with faith and compassion, he was able to triumph and experience resilience at its best!”
“I believe his testimony will inspire everyone and we’re looking forward to people coming out and showing him their support at his first faith-based book signing on the West Coast.” The theme for CCC’s Spring Fling Family Fellowship is “Our Year of Change.” The purpose of the event is to help people to realize that being resilient begins with a personal commitment to faith, focus and triumphing.
The day will kick off with Pastor Price Jr. in a one-on-one with Mourning from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. That session will stream live at www.faithdome.org. The conference will break for lunch and a book signing with Mourning from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm. Mourning’s book will be offered at a 15% presale discount between April 8 – 24th at CCC’s book store.
Mourning will address the youth in a special session after lunch. There will be additional breakout sessions designed for men, women and seniors, concluding at 3:30 pm. For more information, call CCC at (323) 758-3777 or visit the website at www.faithdome.org.
