I am very much a goal oriented person. I have life goals, large goals, small goals, and daily personal goals. I have goals to reach my goals. Goals are my life, and my motivation to get everything I can out of it. In the past I have overcome fears, I have achieved what I wanted in my education, and in my careers. With goals I have made myself a better person, and in turn I would like to think that I have shed some improvements on the lives of others as well.
Life for me has been shifting. I am a full believer in things happening for a reason. I am growing each day into a new person. For those of you who know me already I am grateful you are part of my journey and for those new to my life I cannot wait to see what kind of connections can be made. For anyone that shares the same views as I do I hope that something special can be established.
I was a graphic designer for over 10 years and I felt that it was time for a change. I got in to Marketing, I got into social media, I worked on a cruise ship, and now I have found myself working as an ESE ASD Paraprofessional. Quite a new and exciting job working with Elementary level students but new passions are still being discovered every day. A big goal of mine is to find my true passion. My main career goal is to be a Motivational Speaker. My main goal in my career has finally collided with finding my passion; to be a motivational speaker for children and taking on any path that will get me there. I have taken big steps to be where I am now but motivational speaking for children will be the biggest step for me and will require lots of little goals to achieve the ultimate goal.
My main focus of my blog is to share with people ways of being positive in everyday life, and my creation of Ultra Positive mode (UP). I want to build myself as a Speaker. If you are following this blog you know that ball is already rolling for me. This blog is a big stepping stone in improving my writing and sharing my idea to all who are willing to listen. I do hope that not only will my blog inspire others but I hope it serves as an avenue for others to share their ideas with me. Along with my blog I will be sharing positive quotes, stories and pictures all over the social networking sites, Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In. I am flooding the world with positive everything and if I can show proven success in positive thinking and attract enough interest, I plan to start a Pod Cast and a You Tube channel(very excited for this).
Socializing my ideas is only one part of making a name for myself and becoming a motivational speaker. There is work to be done in self improvement and education. I need to improve my reading and writing skills. I will most likely need to take speech classes and a number of other crucial classes to achieve what I want. In the mean time I am gathering my resources. I am reading up on how to be a good public speaker; I am listening to books on tape of great motivational speakers of our time. I have so much sinking in right now and it all feels awesome…I FEEL AWESOME.
Several people have pointed out videos, books, CD’s and great authors to me. I encourage you to share any of your insights and resources with me.
In closing I don’t know how clear this all is for those that do not know me but for those that do; I hope you can see this is a huge life change. I know already with my amazing group of friends and extremely supportive family, encouragement and support will not be hard to come by. Meeting new people will never be discouraged either.
I have many goals in life they are not all listed here and they are always evolving. In the past 2-3 years I have accomplished so much with myself and this blog and I look forward to the time I need to update my goals once again!
Thank you for reading. I am grateful for your following and I encourage you to share my blog with those that you call friends and family. I cannot spread the words of UP (Ultra Positivism) without your generous help. I love all of you.

I know that you are not a “religious” man, but I know you are spiritual and my friend posted this the other day. When I was reading your blog, it came to mind and I wanted to share it with you.
“In all of us, in some secret corner of our heart, there is something which we are enthusiastic for. The word “enthusiasm” comes from the Greek word entheos which means “fulfilled by God”. So, being enthusiastic for something means that the spirit is coming from inside. One is filled with divine hopes, and thinking about it makes one smile. One feels, “If I do this, I will be closer to Krishna (God).”
“Following this inspiration means changing our life and that is often a little risky. It means leaving the known behind and entering the unknown. Most of us don’t dare following our enthusiasm. This is because of something that the Sufi tradition calls the “sacred wound.” At one point we did something wrong and this left a deep impression on us – the sacred wound. In our tradition the sacred wound corresponds to the fact that we have left Krsna, we have left a loving relationship.”

I can easily call myself non-religious, but as of current I am exploring different religions and spirituality. I have the utmost respect for peoples beliefs and view for I myself have my own set of beliefs and views also. I can accept a well written scripture from the bible the same way I can except a deep conversation with a friend or any other idea.
Thank you for sharing this I liked it a lot. “leaving the known behind and entering the unknown” this is exactly what I am doing. Sometimes in risk comes reward, and meeting failure will only encourage me to try a new path to were I want to be.
I’m glad you liked it Mark! I am the same way, I like to hear beautiful ideas and words comming from anyone and anything.
Sending positive thoughts and peace your way!
Thank you very much Sherry. I hope to be gaining my travel spirit soon! 🙂
