Philosophy of Today


When I was sticking a needle in my arm I had determined focus to get what I wanted when I wanted. I stole, fought, manipulated and connived to get high just for today. Now, I know that is destructive behavior and I am no way suggesting that anyone participate in it.

I am just making a point about focus and determination. When getting high was on the line I would have sold my mother (yikes). Now that our goals and dreams are on the line we aren’t even willing to give it 5, 10 or 15 hours a week. We would rather work the 40 hours for 40 years DEAD plan and let the outside world (news media, losers, negative people – sometime family, etc.) disctate life to us.

Did you not know who you are and what you are capable of? Get to know me. I will introduce you to your better self!

Stayed tuned. I have to go so please leave a comment and start a revolution!

    Great video, Paul. Its amazing how so many of us spend our time in the past or in the future instead of focusing on today. We just need to get rid of all that noise in our head because it is just like tuning in to a TV channel that is off the air. learn from our past, plan for the future, but live for today, because today is all we got. We are not promised tomorrow. Live full out today and everyday and practice being PRESENT.Thanks for your words of inspiration, my friend. Talk to you soon!
