Be Legendary

Humanity

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

One of the biggest hurts in the human experience is when we get hurt by someone very close to us.  To add onto the pain, the person is oblivious to the infraction and/or is not interested in mending the hurt.  […]

Relax

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

One of the first assignments I give to my clients, no matter what their plight may be is for them to go celebrate themselves and relax and be selfish for a moment in a healthy way.  I do realize that […]

The Intangibles

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

I had a client who was so richly blessed but he couldn’t see it because his definition of success or riches was in material things.  We’ve all heard that the best things in life are free. I think for a […]

Narrative

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

I Am…

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

Self Torment

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

No Explanation Needed

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

Giving

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

Our Bodies Hold Memory

The Gift of Being Wrong

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

Defining Moments

Celebrate

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

In the journey towards greatness its important to recognize where and how far you’ve come in life. Too often we get so destination oriented  that we miss the blessing because we are so caught up in the end result.  You […]

Spend Time With God

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

I believe for most of us there’s a point in life where we believe the lie that we’re not good enough.  Moreover, we spend the rest of our lives trying to disprove that lie.  While it’s important to live down […]

Embracing Who We Are

Making Peace With Our Past

Who are we in private?

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

Photo Credit: Google For me it’s easy to tell you things that will improve your life and give you tools to greatness.  However, it’s a challenge for me to live what I  preach.  Often our message is usually our struggle.  […]

Mentorship

The Accidental Encourager (Simply be used)

Exposed (Light)

Pathway (Clarity)

posted by Pervis Taylor, III

         The path between where you are presently and the greatness you desire, isn’t a straight line (even though it’s closer than you think!).  A more accurate description is a twisted, scribbled and convoluted path.  In life, its really about […]

Greatness
