WHY MY “Pursuing Significance” MIXTAPE?
Until about 2 years ago, I never expected to create a mixtape. About 3 years ago, one of the young men I’ve been blessed to mentor (Shaquan Huntt) told me about a motivational speaker named, Dr. Eric Thomas (ET). Shaquan told me about the mixtapes ET produced and I took a listen… and kept listening.
Honestly, ET’s mixtapes helped to change my life. His life story, principles & concepts, work ethic, biblical grounding and straightforward execution served as fuel on days when motivation was needed to keep pressing forward towards the dreams and purposes God has placed in my heart.
2 years ago, after the release of my third book, MOVE! Your Destiny is Waiting on You, Shaquan suggested I consider doing a mixtape based on the book. The idea sounded great, but I had a bunch of excuses for not taking action. Meanwhile, I continued speaking to churches, men’s groups and youth groups.
Towards the end of last year, it was clear that my excuses needed to be put to rest. For the dream to happen, I would just have to do it. My decision to take action led to the production of this free mixtape – made up of selections from various speaking engagements. Later this year, I will produce a second mixtape based on my third book. (That one will be available for purchase.)
MAKING AN IMPACT
My hope is that this mixtape impacts your life like ET helped to impact mine. Simply put… I’m ‘paying the blessing forward.’ So, here is my mixtape! The title, Pursuing Significance, is about my desire to be more than successful in life. My desire is to create a legacy which inspires, motivates and educates others for generations to come.
