What Drives You to Succeed? Keep a Strong Nucleus

imageWe all have things in our lives that are important to us, things that we love. For example, I love working with funeral directors. I love doing what I do with ConnectingDirectors.com. And we all now know how much I love Skittles, but these are not the reasons I get out of bed every morning. Of course they are motivation, especially the Skittles, but there are far more important things in my life.

I want to share something with you that I have never shared before. Below is the real reasons i get out of bed in the mornings, below are the reasons that even if I couldn’t do the amazing and humbling things I get to do through ConnectingDirectors.com, I wouldn’t be any less happier or blessed.

Take a look below.

Any successful career is built around a stong family nucleus. That is one thing I admire about the funeral business, strong family focus.

This is a picture of my two little girls, Kihryn and Kwynce. You have saw their Christmas presents and heard me talk about them, now you get to see them.

This is a picture taken last weekend at a traveling butterfly exhibit (they were taken here by Grandma and Gindad).

These two girls are the reasons I rise every morning, and there isn’t a day that goes by that these two angels don’t blow me away.

I am blessed beyond belief.
