As a Young man, I was very troubled. Looking Back A key factor to the philosophy I used was What I was taught By those I looked up to. Those mentors & were not positive in the ideas That they taught me about as To being Important Keys For A Successful Life ! I’m The End We all Have to Take Responsibility For Our Path, But HAD I Had This Program Implemented In my Life, I would Have Gone Down A Much different Road! I wasn’t given that Option & I suffered in the end. My mind was set back several years ! For Example, at 35 I’m Just Beginning To Mature into A intelligent Functioning Adult With The proper Core Values That God Meant for All to Be taught. The Passion I have Stems From The Fact That All I have Learned Could Be Used To Help Others Acknowledge This & Learn How to avoid any Similar Path. I believe That one can Truly reshape Their Destiny & Reroute Their Path To Be One Of Greatness! Provided All Things Are In Line With The True Will That’s Meant to Be.
In Feb 2013, I started working with the youth at The Local Boys & Girls Club. My philosophy has always been To share positive concepts. Striving To Leave All Negativity Out if Possible. Beginning back in Feb of 2013 I would Sign in to The after school Program & gather about 10 young men ages varied ( 12-15yrs ) . I would share for about 30 minutes.
I would use terms like , ” I Would be playing pro ball right now, possible retiring a wealthy man had I lived By This Philosophy ! If I had Someone I respected Teach me, I may have avoided all of the Hardship that My Choices Brought me, FOR EXAMPLE:
•Put %100 into my studies back while in school [ Beginning this practice in pre school ] .
• Strived to be a leader
• Respected my teachers
• Stand up for those that were being bullied.
• Put 100% effort into my athletics , Training, & the extracurricular activities I chose To participate in .
• I encourage you just to be all around leaders The Core Values Mentioned Above, Along With Other positive Life lessons Are the Core Of The program.
I would share This With them & How These value Would Have Changed My Life Dramatically! “
Instead of retiring now from a pro career I am telling you that I regret not living By These Values & Doing what Is Required to achieve success on a high-level.
I challenge You to Do what is Necessary & learn From My Story.” All have always responded very well and listened. With Respect & Attentiveness of a celebrity, Athlete, Etc !
From All I have learned , I Have always Only put weight into someone’s word if I had Respected That Person! That Usually Required certain Things .
I Have used All That life has Taught Me To Build The Core Philosophy & That Always Brings A Set Of Key Questions To Mind.
•Is This A key lesson That Would Have Changed my life In Positive ways?
• who Would I Have listened to As A youth? That being an Individual who’s Philosophy Could’ve Changed my Life Dramatically!
*There we’re many other key questions But those were to That come to mind that we’re always there! I also remember as a youth that my mentors and those I looked up to usually share similar key factors.
KEY 1* I always listen to one whose was an image of a big strong muscular man.
KEY 2. The Positive Values Coming From A Role Model That Any & All would Listen to Is What Brought This Idea Together & Would Be A Life Changing Program . I believe if Placed / Performed Correctly this Could be almost full proof!
DETAILS: We would start with one school. Possibly a middle school or high school. We would gather the counselors & administration together . Ask them to put together A list of 3 to 5 of the most troubled youth in their system. Ones that are close to losing their way and are bound and Destined to have a life of failure and hardship. We would like to change the course of these young men’s lives using this program and we believe that it’s a great chance that we can.
Mentoring / Relationship Building Meetings , Using modern technology, LIVE VIDEO FEED ( Skype is an option ) .
Using Mentors & Leaders Who Are Fairly Well Known from Their Success. [celebrity athletes as well as any well-known individual who would like to participate in changing lives ]
The program Will Be 6 month minimum. •3 x a week minimum •USING LIVE VIDEO FEED THE MENTORS WILL BUILD A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ONE HE IS PAIRED WITH . •VARIOUS TIME FRAME DEPENDING ON SCHEDULE. 1 HR MEETINGS WOULD BE THE GOAL.
• KEY •
The RELATIONSHIP TO BE BUILT ON TRUST, CARE, LOVE. SO THAT OUR POSITIVE LESSONS ARE TAKEN HOLD & INSTILLED INTO THE DAILY LIVES OF THE TROUBLED YOUTH , THUS THE CHANGE BEGINS!
Evan Mathis & The Rock ( Evan’s Gym out West) I believe using Mentors Similar to • Evan Mathis / (former Alabama player/ current NFL ) •Deontay Wilder (heavyweight boxing champion of the world) similar names .. actors / athletes/ etc..
Him like one who has achieved so much and I really believe can give positive lessons to the youth in a one on one setting using live video feed , giving life lessons.
A good combination would be An Athlete who has had lots of success without the trouble together ( but at separate times they would be having their 1 on 1 time) with someone like Michael Vick.
He & similar figures would really be able to relate to A kid and that kid I believe would listen to anything They said and put put into place! The combination of all these ideas in place There would be a great chance of complete guidance into a different direction of life! In which the individual will end up being something awesome & amazing, completely different!
2nd : Controlled Environment
The success of the Program will be determined by the The support from the Public & Potential Mentors We would like be put a house Together for The controlled Environment Setting To Place to Programs Participants in For the duration of the Program( Parental Consent Etc) .. In a controlled environment where we pump in nothing but positivity and bring and say Alabama athletes who are constantly encouraging ! Also having these 1 on 1 life lesson/ mentoring meetings would be enough ! All of this Of Course we got to get the permission from the parents!!! I am starting to put this together and bringing it to the public trying to get a grant possibly!
