For Everyone Still Chasing a Dream

The Dreamer by Paul Lawrence Dunbar

Temples he built and palaces of air,
And, with the artist’s parent-pride aglow,
His fancy saw his vague ideals grow
Into creations marvellously fair;

He set his foot upon Fame’s nether stair.
But ah, his dream,—it had entranced him so
He could not move. He could no farther go;
But paused in joy that he was even there!

He did not wake until one day there gleamed
Thro’ his dark consciousness a light that racked
His being till he rose, alert to act.
But lo! what he had dreamed, the while he dreamed,
Another, wedding action unto thought,
Into the living, pulsing world had brought.

Motivation from the Car: Now on YouTube

Author Gary A. McAbee “Mr. Intangible”

What is Motivation from the Car?

Motivation from the Car is a series of self-help videos I create while I sit in my car. If you know me well, you would know that I do my best work in my car. I think clearly. I see clearly. I gain insights and understand things a lot better while I am sitting or driving my car. So I thought, why not put these interesting moments on video to share with the world?

The Motivation from the Car video series can be found on my YouTube channel. It consists of videos that provide a small dose of motivation any time you need it. These short one-minute videos allow me to  discuss topics like having patience, staying away from comparison, and avoiding the Monday morning blues. Take a look at these three videos for a sample of motivation from the car, Gary McAbee style!

Motivation for the World by Gary A. McAbee

I write. You read. We learn. Together! -Gary A. McAbee

Motivation for the World is a theory created by Gary A. McAbee designed to have a positive impact by providing motivation and inspiration through sharing various forms of communication and success strategies.

Gary A. McAbee Bio:

Gary Alexander McAbee is an author, blogger, and motivational speaker who has programs on goal setting, achievement and using various leadership strategies,  skills and development techniques. Gary has   become one of the  up-and-coming speakers in his field  and his teachings over the years have impacted people from all walks of life.

Gary A. McAbee was born and raised in the inner-city neighborhood of Greenville in Jersey City, NJ. During his formative years, he witnessed the struggles of many who were caught in the cycle of violence, broken homes, and a lack of education. However, his surroundings did not limit his determination to succeed. Gary refused to be another statistic and vowed to make something of his life and have a positive impact on society.  In order to accomplish this goal, Gary left Jersey City for the steel city of Pittsburgh, PA to attend Duquesne University. However, he never lost touch with his hometown or the needs of the struggling community he left behind.

During a stint in the retail industry, Gary became a district trainer and mentor to many of his employees. At this point, one of them suggested that Gary should consider teaching. This suggestion hit home because he always had a passion for education as a means to give hope to those who felt hopeless.  After much deliberation, Gary left the comfort and security of his job to pursue an advanced degree in education. Additionally, he laid the groundwork for creating his first company, ABE! Sports and Entertainment Management.

For the next few years, Gary would vacillate between pursuing his dream to use education as a means to help people improve their lives or continue to move up the “corporate ladder.”  Being in limbo opened the door to self-doubt and several obstacles to accomplishing his goals. It took moving back to his hometown to re-energize and refocus.  His inspiration was a neglected, trash-laden, vacant Jersey City lot that served as a painful, yet potent visual reminder.  As a result, Gary became a teacher and counselor on the secondary, community college, and university levels. He has made a positive impact and influenced many people to use education as a tool that can lead to greater success and a better life.

Gary created Motivation for the World, which is the platform for his motivational speaking and writing. He spent over twenty years researching and writing. As a result, the book WAKE UP! 42 Ways to Improve Black America Now became the first volume of his work. In volume two, RISE UP! 42 Additional Ways to Improve Black America Now, he built upon his philosophy based on careful study and analysis of some of the highest achievers and most successful people in our history.

Thanks to his experiences as a teacher, Gary laid out a series of keywords that could be can be used by his students to define their success. This knowledge, along with his personal beliefs and experiences, have been blended together to create the self-improvement guide Defining Success: One Word at a Time. As his next project, he took the keywords in Defining Success, and created a daily dose of motivation for 2021. Daily themes such as Monday Motivation, Wednesday Wisdom, and Friday Feeling provide real-world examples in his latest book Motivation for the World 2021.

The Mission:

My philosophy is simple. Always be honest and open with people. I believe that everyone has something to offer and I always have something to give. Therefore, it is my duty to respect and honor all people for their contributions and their potential.

The Vision:

My vision is to be a leader in the field of motivational speaking and to write best-selling inspirational books for people of all walks of life.

A Psalm of Life: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A Psalm of Life: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
     Life is but an empty dream!—
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
     And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!
     And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
     Was not spoken of the soul.

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
     Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow
     Find us farther than to-day.

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
     And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
     Funeral marches to the grave.

In the world’s broad field of battle,
     In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
     Be a hero in the strife!

Trust no Future, howe’er pleasant!
     Let the dead Past bury its dead!
Act,—act in the living Present!
     Heart within, and God o’erhead!

Lives of great men all remind us
     We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
     Footprints on the sands of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
     Sailing o’er life’s solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
     Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,
     With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
     Learn to labor and to wait.

You Gotta Have GRIT

You Gotta Have GRIT

GRIT

Grit can be defined as determination. It is so important that it needs more explanation than a simple definition can offer. GRIT is not only determination, but also determination in the face of insurmountable obstacles. In this life, we all face problems that will appear to be impossible to overcome. We all face daunting challenges. We all face difficulties that look like the end of the road is near. GRIT is what keeps us going despite these burdens.

GRIT is tied to faith. Faith is the belief that things are, or will be, better than they look now. Faith sees what is possible, not what is current. Obstacles and challenges look like victories and successes when we apply faith to our situation. GRIT helps our faith while we work toward the outcomes we believe will happen.

GRIT is tied to perseverance. Perseverance is the ability to press on in the face of difficulty. Perseverance allows us to take the next step forward, even though it may lead to another challenge. Perseverance helps us to meet the next challenge, and work toward a successful outcome. GRIT is the substance of perseverance, the ability to survive and advance.

GRIT is tied to patience. Patience is required when the results we seek are delayed. Sometimes in life there is no immediate gratification. Instead, we can wait for extended periods of time before we achieve the success we seek. GRIT allows us to be patient, while the work we put in starts to show tangible results.

GRIT is tied to passion. Passion is the desire to chase or pursue. Passion requires strong desire, even when it is difficult or challenging to continue. Passion allows us find that spark, and then use that spark to move forward. GRIT fills the void when passion declines and needs an injection of enthusiasm.

GRIT is tied to motivation. Motivation toward a positive result requires positive thoughts and actions. We are always motivated. Motivation to achieve great things in the face of hardships requires constant reinvention and reflection. We may not always be motivated to keep going. GRIT is the fuel behind our motivation when it pushes us beyond what we think we are capable of achieving.

 

If you want to push yourself to the limit…

If you want to overcome challenges and hardships…

If you want to recover from setbacks and heartbreaks…

If you want to improve your life…

If you want to achieve greater success…

 

You gotta have GRIT.

Defining Success: One Word At a Time

Defining Success: One Word At a Time

by  Gary A. McAbee

 

Now Available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle

Synopsis:

The road to success can be a long, arduous journey. It is a journey that needs a step-by-step, clearly defined strategy to arrive at the final destination. To accomplish this goal, Gary A. McAbee has laid out a series of success principles, carefully placed in a logical order, which can lead to greater success. These principles have been used consistently by many of the highest achievers in our society. If they can use these concepts to reach success, then they can also be used by everyone to achieve victory.

The book Defining Success: One Word at a Time starts with defining and visualizing the end result: victory. From there, concepts like faith, passion, knowledge, and patience are introduced to the reader as building blocks toward success. Finally, the book ends with an all-encompassing definition of success. This definition, like all of the success keywords before it, includes the previous concepts outlined in this book.

Projects, known as Call-to-Action exercises, are located throughout the book as samples that can be used to supplement the success keywords. In essence, these exercises serve as written examples that allow the reader to work toward success. By completing projects such as The Success Book, Goal Worksheet, and Define Your Success, the success keywords and the concepts associated with each project come to life.

Defining Success: One Word at a Time serves as a road map to success. Make no mistake about it; the road to success can be daunting. Yet this book, along with the teachings and exercises it contains, is the ultimate guide to producing greater results. It is a guide book to reach the ultimate goal: higher achievement and greater success!
