In order to grow we must inhale. Today, posture to promote other. Feel these words and take them as your own. Be of inner peace and nobility.
Being fatherless inspired my appreciation to be a devoted father.
It shaped my purpose for being there to instruct, protect, and guide.
It stimulated my eagerness to aid others – to be better than me.

I am learning that leadership requires commitment. It is fair to say I must define the purpose of my challenge. I must embrace the leader’s role and welcome the associated responsibility. I may tire and at times, I may have doubts, but I must be steadfast and see my mission through. - Jamal ShakeenabFrom the beginning, you provided as my adoring father. Throughout my life, you have served, and did so with nobility. Your paths were far from easy, but you were relentless. Where others stepped with sadness, you imprinted a smile. The ears of the distressed awaited your kind words, and you called. At times, you were more than a compass. Fearing not, you took point and you led me through the darkness. Today, you are the inspiration of my worthy cause. I walk upright, because of your strength. - Jamal Shakeenab With each breath, we must assist and inspire. It should never be an option – because it is the True Spirit of the Believer. - Joe Shakeenab Today, the thunder & constant rain – it is a calming presence to my spirit, soothing beats to my soul, inducing quietness, and making me whole.

You have the vital talent to succeed, it snoozes within. Too often, we seek external validation while weeds cover our internal fortunes. We pray when prayers are repeatedly answered because decisive actions are required of self. We fear the next step unless others walk ahead. We want evidence that tomorrow will be brighter than our yesterday without understanding what that entails. Yet, our creative mind is free. - Joe Shakeenab Self-sufficiency is an illusion if you are not implementing strategic business principles in your personal thoughts and daily actions. Step forward, but know where you are going. This walk can be long, lonely, and weary but tomorrow, the lives of others will be softened – if you continue. - Joe Shakeenab

You have everything you need to sustain and grow; it was given.
You must bear the cost if you are to proceed.
Although physically limited, I still stand strong with you.
Let us run today, grow tired tonight, and we will make it – then refuel tomorrow. - Joe Shakeenab
My hands are of the hard labors of yesterday and my words are softened by time. The low flames within me stir because there is work to be done. Today is yours to claim, you have a choice. Step Up and Take it! - Joe Shakeenab
As your elder, I share a precious moment.

Your profitable trade starts with an idea.
This inspiration is shaped on a platform weighed by value.
