Breaking The Mold

When life takes it’s shape we often find a mold and try our best to fit in it. Some may debate that there isn’t a one size fits all mold for life. As believers we have cried, shouted and been frustrated at the whirlwind of situations that life throws our way. I woke up tonight and decided to write this blog to remind myself that me & my wife are breaking the mold. No it isn’t just a financial mold but also a spiritual mold. There is a point in your walk with Christ where it just seems as if you have hit a glass ceiling. I have declared war against fear and it’s adversaries. Fear tells you that you deserve to sulk in your emotions. It takes those emotions and stagnates any growth in your life. I have learned so much since our business has soft launched. God has revealed to me that effectiveness is a trait that requires obedience.

On a trip to Santa Monica, California I began to walk around a city full of millionaires, models, directors and movie stars. Yet for some strange reason everyone who had the so called life was eerily miserable. With every fancy car that passed by there was always a newer fancier one that drove by. For the longest I thought breaking the mold involved a big bank account and a mansion that me and my wife can live in. Sitting in one of the french restaurants sipping on iced water because I couldn’t read the french soda options on the menu. Our waiter began rapping the lunch specials with a rapid cadence. Eating tough bread dipped in olive oil I began to wonder why was I there. My point is that whenever you haven’t experienced something new you often begin to judge it before you experience it. I say this because I already created a preconceived notion of my atmosphere, the food and people even before fully experience it.

Breaking the mold begins with dying to yourself. Everything that our society discusses often begins with the statement “I fell like”. Feelings are like truly temporary and the enemy occupies these moments and uses them as distractions. As for me and my family the mold has been broken. We will no longer spend another moment in fear of tomorrow because God beholds the future. Once I landed in Dallas all I wanted was my wife, family and simple meal. The truth about life is that there is nothing wrong with simple or fancy. Express yourself in the way the lord created you. I don’t fit in what society calls a modern day black man. God has created me to be uniquely Tweety. A one of a kind name for a one of a kind man. I pray you enjoy these blogs cause I love opening the door to our lives to you in the form of this blog.

Sincerely, HUSTLEBLENDZ

Get out of your way

Today I write to you not just to encourage you but to remind you that you are in the way. The clarity you have been in search of is being hindered by your reflection. Too many people are driving to there destiny while looking at the rear view. Excuse my improper English for a second but ain’t nobody looking backwards gonna go forward. You’ve limited your purpose by pursuing your errors,blaming yourself, blaming others & ultimately walking in self pity.

This mindset that we carry erodes our entire life. Our character & morals predicate our ultimate purpose. I found out years ago that I was my worst enemy. Let me explain even as a teenager I knew that I was gifted in many areas. I suffered internally understanding which direction should I pursue. My options were plenty so I chose all of them. With no hesitation I tried being the “token black guy” as embarrassing as it is the truth is I just wanted to fit in.

As I climbed in different rabbit holes trying to appease this person and that person. God quickly reminded me that everyone in the circle can be wrong yet someone will want to join the circle. See friends it’s easier to join the bigger circle rather than a small one. The small circle required me to strip myself of all my selfishness, the circle had requirements and it embraced me with love. This circle was God’s church.

Your biggest hater is never out there in the world he or she is actually in between your ears. You maybe dealing with worry, unbelief, self doubt and whatever else you found out on google. But I will tell you the truth that even you don’t want to hear. All of the things you wanted to accomplish never happened because you got in the way. You fought against God, you ran away from your purpose, you willfully gave away your inheritance like the prodigal son.

So now that you see yourself in this new reflection and circle. I plead with you to find that small circle. Learn how to distinguish the truth. Discernment is a great tool but without Christ it’s nothing. Get out of your bag matter fact pack up all of your negativity and zip up the bag. Walk to your destiny with boldness and courage. Ain’t nobody gonna stop me from receiving God’s blessings. Believe Dat !!! Lol we love y’all keep hustling.

You Started ..Now What ?

Business Proposal.png

There is a distinction between starting & finishing. Although obvious I believe that most of us are searching for purpose with the wrong intent. Of lately God has been broadening my perspective on purpose. A few questions you may have asked yourself are who am I ? why am I here ? and lastly what is my purpose ? These questions aim to seek ones origin and true identity. The crisis most people face when starting a business, marriage, relationship..etc is that they don’t know who they are, who they belong to and why are they here. This identity crisis limits one’s full potential and often sends them in a whirlwind full of compromise, terrible decisions and unfulfilled purpose.

In each and every one of us there is a longing to belong to someone or something. I remember as child growing up in Kenya life was so carefree days flew by and nights were filled with peace. As a child my imagination was wild, so wild I would soar from buildings and bust open face and loose my two front teeth. The next day I would go back and jump again. The innocence in me radically faded as adolescence approached I approached decisions with caution and became deaf to authority. Far too often we let our situations dictate our direction when God is calling us to soar. As a man I realized that the challenges that I faced as an adolescent were related to a lack of commitment to God. He is simply my purpose. I serve him in all I do and that is fulfilling my purpose. So whether I write a book or start a business with my wife. I understand that Jesus is my why. What is your why ?

Have you ever heard of the saying “look at the blind leading the blind”. Well just know that how you start is truly how you finish. An illustration that comes to mind is imagine if you are not in need of glasses your eyesight was perfect. You read an article online that wearing glasses will increase your chances in getting a job. You go to an interview and you don’t get the job. Do you blame the glasses, the article, yourself or your perspective job ? The error that you made was self inflected, you wasted your time money and effort by starting incorrectly. The problem is that instead of preparing for the interview you were reading a random article about glasses. Most of us find ourselves in this stagnant mindset that causes us to be easily distracted. How you start is how you finish. There’s simply is no other way to put it.

So now that you are here whether you started yesterday a month ago or even 6 years ago. My question to you is now what ? Do not let the fear of starting hinder you but also remain with a plan. Remember these questions who am I ? why am I here ? and lastly what is my purpose ? From hustler to hustler I want to say keep praying for clarity. If God said it he will provide. He will provide not just a way, a provision, a map, a guide and all that you need. When I apply God’s word I can truly testify and say that it is true. As I close I simply want to thank all of the hustler’s out there. Thank you for the out pour. We will lead in example by remaining consistent, trusting God and putting him first.
