You Can Succeed

  If you think success is easy, then you are watching too much TV. It takes determination, skill, and a good work ethic. Sure you could win the lottery or get some great inheritance and live your dreams, but I am talking about good old fashion personal accomplishments.  No matter how often you get knocked down or forced to change course, you can still make it.  

  I never thought I could publish a book and live my dream of teaching self defense to others. Yet here I am, a published author and soon to be certified self defense instructor.  It's taken a long time, a lot of work, a lot of mistakes, missed opportunities, some depression and course changes, but I did not give up.

Check out Scully's take on success on this blog:

I volunteered with CASA in San Diego years ago.

Please check out this video and TAKE ACTION!
