The 3 A’s to Pursuing Your Best Life

The 3 A’s to Pursuing Your Best Life


"When starting a new business endeavor, it is of utmost importance to see if the time-to-scale ratio is in proportion." - Kevin David

A lot has changed in my life in the last year or so. I went through going through depression, thinking about suicide, breaking communication and contact with my family, almost deciding to divorce my wife, getting ready to move out of the house to find Jesus, finding purpose in my life, wanting to work on my marriage and improving my relationship with my family. It has been a wild ride for me, but there was a reason and a purpose for it. God wouldn’t have had me face these challenges if He didn’t already know that I could get through them.

Through the many changes in my life, I found the inspiration to write my book, A Life Worth Living: Pursuing Your Best Life By Escaping Darkness, which will be launched on October 7, 2019. I wanted to give back to others what I’ve learned to be a better version of yourself. I wanted to show that my thoughts of suicide were not a means to an end but a start to a new beginning. I found through living through my darkest days that deciding to live for others was my saving grace.


We can’t move forward in life until we are willing to understand and accept where we currently are and make an honest assessment of ourselves. It’s easy to want to ignore or avoid facing our problems by distracting ourself or not addressing them at all. However, once we come to terms with ourselves, we are primed and ready to pursue our best life.

 Instead of allowing my negativity, shortcomings, failures, insecurities, and indecisiveness define who I was, I turned that energy into fuel to push me towards my strengths. Wanting to live my life for others was the assignment God placed on me. It was only after going through my darkest days did I realize and want to pursue it.


 I wouldn’t have discovered my purpose in life until I sought out guidance from others. I spend too much time in my head, allowing my negative self-talk to make the decisions, leading me further away from who I was and wanted to be. For most of my life, I viewed asking for help as a sign of weakness and that I was less of a person if I couldn’t figure things out on my own. However, asking for help is a sign of strength and humility. Having a growth mindset allowed me to reframe my thoughts to want to improve myself and call upon others to guide me through my journey to have faith in God, love others as God loves me, and be true to myself.


To realize what a better version of yourself is, you first have to believe that your best days are still ahead of you. Then, you have to allow your pain, struggles, challenges, conflicts, and issues teach you lessons to improve yourself. Strength is developed through strife.
