Changing the game..positively

Posted by ~Meik on

What's up fam?
It's that time of year where I start to do a lot of reflecting back on things and people in my life. Sometimes there are people in your life that God places there for a reason, often times we may never really put a finger on why those people are there. Other times, it becomes clear over time. Bear with me, I'm about to get a little sappy here.

What you talkin bout Meik?

I'm glad you asked.

I have always wanted to be in front of the camera for as long as I can remember, but NO ONE would give me the chance. Then one day fate intervened and I met a man that was willing to take a chance on lil ole me and allowed me to be a correspondent on his online show: The S.E.L.F. Show..and I have to say, that was one of the best times I've had in my life because I was doing something I've always wanted to do and learning and cultivating my craft at the same time. The best part, I had someone that was taking the time to encourage, uplift, and push me. I had never had someone want to take out the time to help me like that. I guess there really are genuinely nice people in this world, but let me introduce you to this particular one.

Who is that Meik?

Mr. Mo Stegall.

Let me tell you about Mo, who I fondly call "Mo Diddy" because when I want to quit, he's right there pushing me above and beyond my limit (which most often ticks me off and makes me turn into a mofo and I'm convinced one day he will have me walking from the QC to ATL to get him some cheesecake lol). Actually, in the end it works because had it not been for him..one, you probably wouldn't even be reading this on THE MOFO CHRONICLES website, two, my radio/television voice/persona wouldn't sound/look so eloquent (yes I'm giving myself props lol), and three, I would have given up on pursuing my dreams long ago. Most importantly, he holds me accountable when I'm not pushing towards greatness. So for that I have to say: Thank you Mo! (Don't you tell a soul I said that lol)

So imagine how excited I am that I can share my mentor and friend, Mo with you guys..

No not like that.. (get your mind out of the gutter people!!)..But Mo FINALLY has done what I knew he could do.. write a book..no..its more than that..it's a self empowerment guide that is called "Against All Odds: I Can BE", and just like Mo does for me in real-life, he challenges readers in this book to discover their true inner self and figure out what their purpose is.

I like that the book helps you get those thoughts organized, cuz lawd knows (and so does Mo) that my mind is always all over the place. One of the things Mo is always reminding me of is that change starts with you..you have the ability to change the outcome, you can't let obstacles destroy you, you have to realize those obstacles are put in place to help you grow. What I'm telling you dear blog readers, is that we are responsible for our own outcome. You just have to be in the right frame of mind to make things happen. Mo's book will DEFINITELY help get you on the right path. After all, he is what I like to refer to as my "black Joel Osteen" lol.. Have I steered you guys wrong yet?

Anyway, I want you guys to check out the book "Against All Odds: I Can BE" , because you know I am BIG on supporting people that are doing big things and it makes my heart smile when they are doing something to help people realize their full potential. Besides, Mo has helped me more than he knows. He probably thinks I'm not listening but I hear every word, now the book is just the icing on the cake!

How can you get the book?

Well, I guess I can't let people quit in my circle even if it means confronting them and giving them a hard time. I see it had a positive impact on you.
