Date with Destiny

The date was established in January of 2006 and came to fruition October 16, 2006 when I actually became a Dad! Many times men go through life and never truly accept the Date with Destiny but I was different in that I actually looked forward to the moment when I could groom my son for success. You see from the initial moment that I held him I knew that my responsibility had increased tremendously and I had to rise to the occasion. At that point I was a senior in college and about to enter the real world in more ways than one. However it was something about my Date with Destiny that changed my life forever. I mean at that point settling for 2nd best would never be good enough again. I now had a set of eyes watching every move that I made and I could not fall short in any attempt for excellence. So I guess that one could say that my Date with Destiny truly helped me be the best that I could be! Trying to be the best Dad I can be is what pushes me to work hard and sacrifice each day. You see the sacrifice is what separates me, keeps me focused and keeps me pushing daily to establish a true legacy. So as I close I want to know what you will do or have done with your Date with Destiny? Will you actually honor it? Will you go from me-centered to we-centered? How has your life been enhanced by it? What advice can you give to other men who are awaiting their Date with Destiny? Take a moment and comment below so that we all can GROW!!

  1. Your a great father, a great principle, a great coach & and a great friend. I’m truly blessed and honored to call you a friend. You have truly help me I’m young and I’m still learning. I don’t have a dad but it’s great to know that when I need you you’re there to listen just giving you advice. Your son is quite lucky to have you as a father…

  2. Yes indeed, becoming a dad is really the wake-up call of wake-up calls. If you choose to embrace the awesomeness of the moment, and realize that you are now the model for someone else in every way, it really is your Date with Destiny.

    I like that image. It means you’re suddenly face to face with the rest of your life, or at least, a major factor that will influence your life from that moment forward. From that moment, we are called to be our best. That doesn’t mean perfect. It means being honest, and humble, and energized, and hopeful, and focused, loving, and supportive, and have your priorities straight, and driven, and fired up for every day with enthusiasm.

    Your destiny is NOW. With your kid(s). Be THERE.

    And nice piece, J.K.
