Canyons So Grand, But How?

Posted by kelvinbroadus on July 9, 2017 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (43)

About a month ago, I had the pleasure of going to the Grand Canyon for the first time. We were in Utah for a family reunion, and one of the activities was to go hiking there. Normally, when I go on trips with my wife, we go to places in the Caribbean – always looking for a beach – and rarely explore the continental U.S. In fact, I’ve traveled much more outside of the U.S. than actually within it. Nevertheless, it was a very interesting trip and it showed me some of the vas...

Look Where You Least Expect

Posted by kelvinbroadus on October 3, 2016 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I was looking for something over the weekend, and just like I always advise, if what you're looking for isn't where you think it should be, start looking in places that it shouldn't be. This is what I did; I started looking everywhere else.


Don't miss the message in that statement though…


• If you don’t generate the success you desire in the business you’ve been trying to build it in, start looking at business ideas that you had ne...

Don't Get Filtered Out

Posted by kelvinbroadus on May 2, 2016 at 10:55 AM Comments comments (0)

As we humans become more and more health conscious, the idea of filtration and pure ingredients is increasingly important. We desire for our water to be filtered or purified so that no contaminates will be consumed. We desire for our food to be organic whereas no additional toxins, pesticides, or hormones have been added. We even desire for our beer to be filtered for a cleaner, lighter taste.

The process of filtering does exactly that. It filters; it cleans the substance o...

Follow Their Lead

Emulate the creator of the type of life that you desire! If you want to be a real estate billionaire, emulate a real estate billionaire's work ethic, charisma, knowledge, and networking. If you want to marry a basketball player, carry yourself like the type of woman who gets a basketball player, spending endless time in the gym to keep the physique, keeping your hair, nails, attitude, etc., on point. If you want to be a powerful leader, emulate the self-discipline, service mentality, and persona... Read Full Post »

Approach and Result

Posted by kelvinbroadus on January 16, 2014 at 5:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Your entering, inner perspective or approach for a situation will determine your the results, or the result of the results. ;-)


Take time to understand what this means. If you approach a situation with the idea of it being negative, you are already sabotaging yourself in how it will turn out. If you believe you will be defeated, you pretty much will be defeated. It is more about your inner perspective than the outside situation.


Then, even if it doesn't ...

Make You

Posted by kelvinbroadus on August 27, 2013 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (0)

"They make me sick!"
"He/She made me so mad."


These are the types of statements the average person makes, the type of statements that all of us have said at one time or another.


Yet... why? Why give other people the power to MAKE YOU do anything that you don't want to do? Why let anyone or anything MAKE YOU be anything you don't want to be?


Those statem...

Lion's True Colors

Imagine this…

A lion is born in a zoo and raised its entire life there, where everything is fed to it and it is nursed by humans throughout its youth.  Take that a little further and consider for safety purposes that the zookeeperss often it by raising it alongside many of the very same animals that it would normally eat in the wild.  This naturally wild animal is now acting as a friendwith its natural prey.

So now you have – for all aesth...

Your True Fruit

Posted by kelvinbroadus on October 2, 2012 at 6:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Very often people say that the “great things,” such as money, that you receive in life are the fruit of your labor. Reconsider this idea though. Our effect on the world is the fruit of our internal realization. What we get in life (money, friends, etc.) are the consumers of our fruit.

Think about this… for our money, success, friends, etc, to be the fruit, we would have no pleasure from them just as a tree doesn’t eat/consu...

It's Not A Big Deal

Posted by kelvinbroadus on July 30, 2012 at 3:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I’ve often heard people refer to issues, negative issues, as, “it’s no big deal.”

Teenagers, for instance, will often say about the things that adults have learned through experience, that it’s no big deal. Some examples are:

- Watching constant violence on TV or video games.
- Immersing themselves in the overly sexual media.
- Allowing people to disrespect them as long as it is followed by laughter.
- Casual use...

What A Day!

Posted by kelvinbroadus on July 27, 2012 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Today was one of those days that just make you… sigh. Hahaha

First, it started out with car issues of a bad battery. The wife’s car would not crank at the gas station, so before work I had to go push the car from the pump, carry around this 60lb battery (which costed about $170), and then head in to work an hour late.

On the way in, I did have a ray of sunshine when I was in the city and gave a homeless guy a bottle of w...
