My name is Terrell Cotton and I am a blogger and full-time single father of two sons who are my heart and soul. Being a full-time single father, I have endured many trials and had many sleepless nights.  I’ve gone through long periods of unemployment, battled depression, had multiple bad relationships, and often had doubts about my ability to be a good father.

One day I decided that I wanted better for us. I realized that many of the things I was going through were because of mistakes I've made and I had to acknowledge that. I chose to be in relationships with women that were wrong for me. I made the financial mistakes that landed me in debt. I chose to work jobs I hated, and most of all I chose to be miserable.  I learned three hard truths that many of us need to learn.

  1. This world is a harsh and unforgiving place, and it owes you nothing.
  2. No one is coming to save you, period.
  3. I needed to stop a life that was the very definition insanity and make better decisions.

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."  Albert Einstein

After realizing these hard truths I knew that in order for life to change, I needed to change the way I approached it.  I made a plan to build a better life for myself and my sons.  I took action to make myself into the man I wanted to be.  I celebrate my successes and learn from my failures, but never quit.  And now I use my experience to inspire others to do the same.

I created this blog because I want to help others succeed in life. I know what it’s like to live a life of misery and insanity, and if I can help others to start living a positive life then that is what I intend to do.

Plan, Build, Succeed, and Inspire
