“Our actions are who we are; Our words are who we hope to be.”
By Ray J
It is our actions that prove who we really and truly are. Even when you say or feel a different way, your actions show the truth. We can only hope better for ourselves but until we prove better, what we hope is just an unfulfilled dream.

Step One: NO PROCRASTINATION
Do what needs to be done right then and there. The longer you put it off the more of a burden it will become. Why are you waiting until “New Years” or the last min. to get started? The best time is right now. Do you want a better body? Well, get up and start those crunches now! Do you have work to complete? Finish it now so you can get on with your day! When something is complete, it’s complete. There is nothing else to it but to do it.
Step Two: OVERCOMING FEAR
Fear is what keeps you from prospering. It is normal to feel fear of the unknown and/or fear of failure. Your power to overcome fear is the gateway to your true success. The worst that can happen is your goal not happening at all. And if you are letting fear control your life, then your biggest fear is already taking place.
Step Three: PACE YOURSELF
I’m sure you have all heard the cliche “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, and it is true. Taking small steps that eventually make the big picture is easier than taking huge steps that are not concise and impatient. Once you learn to pace yourself you will start to understand the value of time, patience, and effort. Your end goal will be more pleasurable and satisfying because of your hard work , dedication and patience.
Step Four: TIME MANAGEMENT
Manage your time wisely. Set out specific time brackets in which you will complete your work. Use those set aside times and dedicate it to completing the task at hand. During this time you should be consumed in that set out task and only that. When you manage your time correctly, you will see a difference in how “busy” your day actually is.
Step Five: BE SURE TO HAVE FUN
No matter how boring or routine a task is, make it fun. Find a way to like what you do. You only have one life to live and if it means using your time doing something you rather not do, turn that task into something you like to do. Optimism is key in living a happy life. Variety is what keeps life exciting so, find new ways to do what you find routine or boring.Read more
Flashback: Ray in Kontrol Magazine
By Ray J
Here are some excerpts form the issue (via Kontrol magazine)
Ray on becoming more mature: “ I’ve been wild and crazy for a few years, doing me. But after a while you have to grow; as a man, as an artist, as an entrepreneur. The old Ray J was much more reckless. It comes to a point in your life as a man and as an artist to look back at what you’ve done and learn from that, and know how many people are watching you and looking up to you, and take that responsibility to put out positive messages and projects that people can be inspired from.”
Ray’s Thoughts on Brandy & Ray J: A Family Affair : “I have total control of the show. We try to let you see everything. So if I was reckless that day, or if I was drunk or if I was focused, we want to show that. We don’t candy coat it and show you what we want you to see. My goal is to just let people see what we go through, and then also show you the learning process of where we were and how we learn to elevate from that. That’s the most important thing to me.”

Ray J Campaigned with Obama and the Democratic Party in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ray J along with Councilman Barlow, Senator Aaron Ford, and Chairman Roberta Lane, to name a few, supported the Obama Administration in Nevada and helped lead President Barack Obama to the victory of remaining the President of the United States for another full term.
Below is an excerpt from President Obama’s Power Speech in Nevada:
“THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody. (Applause.) Good afternoon. Everybody, please have a seat. Have a seat. It is wonderful to be here. Thank you so much. It is great to be in Boulder City.
A couple people I want to thank for their outstanding work. First of all, our Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, is in the house. (Applause.) He’s the guy in the nice-looking hat. Not only does it look good, but it protects his head, because the hair has gotten a little thin up there. (Laughter.) He is a good-looking guy.
AUDIENCE MEMBER: One of them. One of them.
THE PRESIDENT: One of them. (Laughter.) That’s right. There’s the other guy. (Laughter.)
I also want to thank your Mayor — a big supporter of solar energy — and that’s Roger Tobler, for being here. Where’s Roger? Here he is right there. I just met his beautiful daughter. It’s great to see you. (Applause.)
I want to thank Jeffrey Martin, CEO of Sempra, and John and Kevin, who helped just give me this tour.
And Boulder City is the first stop on a tour where I’ll be talking about what we’re calling an all-of-the-above energy strategy — all of the above. A strategy that relies on producing more oil and gas here in America, but also more biofuels, more fuel-efficient cars, more wind power and, as you can see, a whole lot more solar power.
This is the largest solar plant of its kind anywhere in the country. That’s worth applauding. (Applause.) Every year, you produce enough clean energy to power around 17,000 homes. And that’s just the beginning. Things are going so well that another plant is already under construction down the road that will eventually power another 45,000 homes. And a third plant is in development that will be, one day, able to power around 66,000 homes.
Now, this is an area that was hit hard by the recession — and that’s true of the whole state. You guys have been through a lot. But you haven’t given up. You looked around at this flat, beautiful land and all this sun — I just — I asked the question, how many days of sun do you get a year — 320 — that’s pretty good — and decided that Boulder City was the perfect place to generate solar power.
In fact, as I was talking to the folks from Sempra, they were explaining that this location is almost optimal for solar power generation, not only because it’s flat, transmission lines were already here, the sun is traveling and there’s no haze and it’s absolutely clear. And so this is an extraordinary opportunity for the community. And when a business showed up with plans to build a new solar plant, hundreds of local workers got jobs because of it. Thousands of families are now powering their homes with a cleaner, renewable source of energy.”

After Campaigning with Obama in Nevada, Ray wants to say Congratulations to the Obama Administration for 4 MORE YEARS of presidency!
Below is a portion from the transcription of President Obama’s Acceptance Speech:
OBAMA: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much.
Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward.
OBAMA: It moves forward because of you. It moves forward because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war and depression, the spirit that has lifted this country from the depths of despair to the great heights of hope, the belief that while each of us will pursue our own individual dreams, we are an American family and we rise or fall together as one nation and as one people.
Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come.
OBAMA: I want to thank every American who participated in this election…
… whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time.
By the way, we have to fix that.
Whether you pounded the pavement or picked up the phone…
… whether you held an Obama sign or a Romney sign, you made your voice heard and you made a difference.
I just spoke with Governor Romney and I congratulated him and Paul Ryan on a hard-fought campaign.
We may have battled fiercely, but it’s only because we love this country deeply and we care so strongly about its future. From George to Lenore to their son Mitt, the Romney family has chosen to give back to America through public service and that is the legacy that we honor and applaud tonight.
In the weeks ahead, I also look forward to sitting down with Governor Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward.
I want to thank my friend and partner of the last four years, America’s happy warrior, the best vice president anybody could ever hope for, Joe Biden.
OBAMA: And I wouldn’t be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago.
Let me say this publicly: Michelle, I have never loved you more. I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you, too, as our nation’s first lady.
Sasha and Malia, before our very eyes you’re growing up to become two strong, smart beautiful young women, just like your mom.
OBAMA: And I’m so proud of you guys. But I will say that for now one dog’s probably enough.
To the best campaign team and volunteers in the history of politics…
The best. The best ever. Some of you were new this time around, and some of you have been at my side since the very beginning.
But all of you are family. No matter what you do or where you go from here, you will carry the memory of the history we made together and you will have the life-long appreciation of a grateful president. Thank you for believing all the way, through every hill, through every valley.
