Your Dreams Won’t Come Chasin’ You

Life lesson: If you want your dreams to come true, you’ll have to work really hard at chasing them, because as my pops told me… Your dreams won’t come chasin’ you.

Hardwork21

This life lesson is one of my favorites. It is also one of the reasons I wanted to write Adventures in Raceland. I wanted to go out and create something, so I did. It was about 4 years ago and still simply a dream waiting to be put to into words. I had all my reasons and plenty of inspiration but it was ME who put pen to paper, or rather fingers to keyboard. I did it and no one else.

Of course I wouldn’t be where I am without the love and support of family and friends, but Adventures in Raceland wasn’t going to write itself.

You can go anywhere in life you desire to. Some of it is luck but about 99% is the work you put into it. Life is what you make of it so reach for the stars and set your goals higher than you can imagine. You might get there eventually but never stop improving yourself and you will prevail. Success is a great place to be but the feeling of accomplishment is even better. 

Life Lessons: Win or Lose

Life lesson: Be a good sport whether you win or lose because nobody likes a poor sport.

Going back to my first post about why I created RodKingz, the life lessons included in the book are my direct way of creating wholesome entertainment. Why shouldn’t the fun things in life such as RodKingz instill good values and include positive messages?

Kindness and Sportsmanship

Kindness and Sportsmanship

This life lesson can be applied to a flag football game or even a professional situation. Whether you come out on top or somehow drop the ball, show class either way. It all starts with attitude. If you positively convey the right attitude you can earn respect from others. You can’t learn to respect others until you learn to respect yourself. Start with self-respect, maintain a positive attitude, and uphold these values to everyday situations. You will go far in life with this mindset.

Here are some good sportsmanship examples I would like to share. Read these and think about what self-less acts of kindness you could do. 10 Acts of Good Sportsmanship. These are types of values I also instill in my boys and their team. Though they are winners they proudly hold their titles with class.
