#MylesSpeaks – Seize Your Moment

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” 

― Henry David Thoreau

I watched the #BarrettJackson Auto Auction live on Friday and one of the cars auctioned off was the very last C7 #Corvette that will ever be made. It’s a Black Z06 with all the muscle and sexiness that you’d expect from such a machine…

The auction house waived its fee and #Chevrolet donated 100% the proceeds to a program that builds homes for catastrophically wounded and disabled veterans.
As the auctioneer barked out “I got 500 thousand, can I 550?”, the TV announcer said, “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!” I instantly thought about all the opportunities that present themselves to us every day that we allow to pass us by because we weren’t in a position to fully grasp them. Many of those opportunities never come back around because somethings, when you miss them, they are gone like Haley’s Comet. There was one person who decided that this car was their opportunity and their moment and they came ready to seize it.

The winning bid came in at a whopping $2.7 million dollars for this piece of history. Why, is this particular Corvette so special you might ask? When the car that was won in this auction rolls off the line in Bowling Green, KY in September, it will mark the last time the C7 or 7th generation Corvette will be built with a Front-mounted engine. Beginning on July 18th, the C8 or 8th generation Corvette will roll off the line, for the 1st time ever, with a Mid-mounted engine. If you’re not a car enthusiast, just trust me, this is a really big deal! 🙂


For the person who made the purchase to get this car, they have etched themselves in the annals of car collector heaven and I have also attached their family to this amazing time in history. There will be countless stories told about the owner of this car, their passion to buy this car, and what does it mean to now own this car. This a dream car and congrats to the new owner and the charity that will reap the benefit of this purchase.

What is this lesson behind all of this? When your opportunity presents itself to you for you to possess your dreams, the price that you’ll have to pay will be well worth it. Not only that, somebody will benefit greatly from the payment you’ll gladly make!

Your moment may not include a high performance sports car. However, I AM certain of this, there is something that passionately drives you. Even if it doesn’t make sense to anyone else, YOU MUST SHOW UP AND YOU MUST GET IT AT ALL COST! Seize YOUR Moment!!

#MylesSpeaks – Food For Thought – 9/3/14

mmmThrough The Fire

By: Myles W. Miller

“None could be strong if we did not go through countless wrong.”

― Rizi Dame C. Briz

About year ago, I had a dream that I survived a vicious fiery plane crash without any safety devices and walked away with only a few visible scratches… In the hospital, the nurses asked who I was and told me that was impossible because there was no survivors from the flight..

It didn’t make sense until today… As I look back over this past year, my life has felt like a plane crash. Many experts who have examined the “wreckage” have determined that no one survived… However, we don’t live our lives based on the assessment of experts… We live our lives based on our individual Divine assignments… If your assignment isn’t complete, people can write you off all they want to, but God will preserve you and reignite you to get it done!

What areas of your life have people written you off and have determined that all is lost? Where have you believed that it’s over for your dreams? When did you quit? No matter the answers to those questions, I come to you today in the intention of my mantra and motto, “Don’t Give Up, Don’t Ever Quit on Your Dreams!

No matter what the critics/naysayers/self-anointed experts have to say about your life, as long as you have inspiration in your spirit, life in your body, and soundness of your mind, beautiful things can still happen for you. You are designed to prosper and flourish in every area of your life!!! I love you all and pray that you place a firm demand on this universe for everything that God has promised you is yours and that you don’t miss not one speck! NOW IS YOUR TIME TO GET UP AND GO GET IT!!!

Love,

+Myles

mmmThe Power of Agreement

By: Myles W. Miller

We all have different timetables in reaching and realizing that being in healthy partnership is better than being on our own.

– Hill Harper

As I have gotten more mature and seasoned in the ways of people, I have clearly discovered something powerful. “What’s in it for me?” is not a self-centered question, but a fair question. It is also a question that requires a solid answer in order move forward in agreement with someone.

Whether it be in business, intimate relationships, friendships, or partnerships, both parties should clearly have the benefits of engagement spelled out for them as an added incentive for continued interaction.

My Moment of Clarity

Myles Miller Motivation - GO GET IT!!

I’m getting ready have a moment of transparency and clarity and share one of my biggest secrets with you and hopefully, it will help you…

I’ve never liked asking for help. Even when I was a little boy, I absolutely despised asking people for help. Somehow, someway, it made me feel weak and needy. Those are two things that I never wanted anybody to ever attach to me. So fast forward through my adolescent years, past my teenage years, beyond my 20’s, and now into my 30’s, I still struggle to muster up the courage to ask for help. I mean, I could be in a serious situation and still rely solely on my own spiritual and intellectual resources to come through it. Now, in many cases, like a major league slugger, I’ll come up with the goods to get the job done in the clutch. However, in the other instances, I strike out more than the average person does. In essence, when I win, I win BIG, but, I lose more than average man does too.

So some people would call it pride, but as I’ve delved deeper into my own psyche, I’ve discovered it to be fear. The fear that somehow, someway, I’m just not adequate enough or even worthy of the things that I value most (i.e. love, family, career success, etc.). This belief and ideology has affected everything you could possibly imagine in my life. It has caused me to willingly to go above and beyond the call of duty in relationships, organizations, and friendships just to “prove” my worth, many times at my own expense and detriment.

In my healing process, I’ve been learning that as I learned how to love myself more for who God says I AM, my need to prove myself has been dissolving. Instead, what’s beginning to take place is that love always permeate from me. I’m finally at a place where I understand how to ask for help when I need it. Believe it or not, I’ve even learned how to say “NO” when no is the correct answer!

As I share this with you, I want you understand that you may be having an internal battle right now that is limiting the degree of success that you could and should be experiencing, but understand that somebody understands your plight and asking for help doesn’t make you weak! Don’t be ashamed to acknowledge it and get the help you need to overcome your challenge. It’s your time to come up!!!
