Live a Life Worth Telling a Story About

One of my sayings I coined many years ago was “Live a Life Worth Telling a Story About… What’s Your Story?

I believe ALL of us have greatness within.

I believe we ALL have MORE strength & power within us than we think.

I believe all of us can DREAM bigger and create way more IMPACT than we can possibly imagine.

Part of my life’s mission has been to “motivate & inspire millions to greatness and create IMPACT every day.”

That’s what makes me tick. That’s what fires me up. That’s what gets me up early in the morning and lights a fire under my step.

As many of you know, I have been working on a special project the past few months to help share my story…in hopes that it will motivate you to do great things and then you can share your story to help inspire even more people.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Some may think or say, “Why would you do a documentary now in your life when you’re only 45 years old…you’re not even “half-way” through your life yet?”

Haha. See what I did there.

I hope my entire life documentary someday when I’m gone (which will be in about 65 years from now when I’m 110 years old ☺) will be far different than this one you see today.

My whole thing is WHY WAIT to do what you want to do with your life? Don’t put it off until later. Do it NOW!

The purpose of sharing my life documentary now is to light a fire under your tail and inspire YOU to do great things in your life NOW…sooner rather than later.


  1. What is ONE-THING you could do this week to get one step closer to attaining your dream/vision for your life? And most importantly, take that step and attack it with relentless fervor and spirit.
  2. Share YOUR Story. Whether that is on Facebook, YouTube or through an email, we all have a story to tell. And if you feel you don’t have a life worth telling a story about, NOW is the time to build it. (Even better post your story on Facebook and take a picture in your Live a Life T-shirt to go along with it and tag me! I would love to read it!!)

We all have a life worth telling a story about…what’s your story? It’s time for YOU to step up BIG this week and make magic happen. Life is short. Don’t wait. Be GREAT this week. And craft up the most amazing story you could imagine.

I believe in you and know that you have way more strength and power in you than you think. Go make it happen.

Thanks for being you. “See you” soon!

Much love,


Special thanks to Ira Davis and IvIiii Productions for doing such an amazing job on creating this documentary project in collaboration with me.
