“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.” — David Brinkley

“Standfast with piers of faith”

“Be around people that make you want to be a better person, who make you feel good, make you laugh, and remind you what’s important in life.”
― Germany Kent

“Standfast with piers of faith”

“Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation: Whoever believes will not be in haste.” — Isaiaih 28:16

Secure your foundation with the following and you will never have to deal with foundation issues ever intellectually, emotionally, spirtually, physically and financially.

“A diamond is a chunk of coal that did well under pressure.”- Henry Kissinger

In times of change and especially when there is intense pressure on all fronts, an individual will reveal their true self.

This is the time when all chameleon acts are disbanded. What remains is the individual that is absolutely naked and real.

However, there are piers that are able to sustain and promote increased wellbeing regardless of present circumstances.

These piers are serenity, courage, wisdom and faith.

There will always be haters and lovers, especially when one is on a trek of unimaginable success.

The internet is already riddled with amateur, media conjecture and hyperbole so stand your ground as these entities will fade into oblivion as you reach your pinnacle. Release them to the universe with blessings and good will.

“Standfast with piers of faith”

One does not have to have years behind them in order to express these pillars.

Many young people today surprisingly have utilized these piers especially at this time with social media bombarding their constant attention 24/7 and 86,400 seconds of each day.

My mantra, “Others will be looking at the fire while you are walking through the fire towards your victory and success” are depictive of these people.

These are the people that walk through the fire.

Who are they?

The list is very extensive and includes almost anyone on the planet today that is doing what they need to do in order to combat invasive present circumstances in the world.

The four pillars provide the foundation that is necessary to press onward and Godward.

These people are not impervious to fear and anxiety.

Their fearless actions in trust and humility provide them with the armor that is required in unprecedented times.

Many people refer to this with the following acronym, F A I T H.

You already have these pillars yourself as you spent the first nine months or so in your mother’s womb and made it through the birth canal.

You plopped out of your mother’s womb and there you were naked and beautiful in your entire splendor.

You are included in the above list.

You can be just like the diamond.

Carpe Momentum.

Yours in success,
