Jay Vinson, an Atlanta-based entrepreneur & author of Stepping into Greatness, is changing the lives of young adults through his coaching

People may have heard of "productively" using their time, but the catch here is that only a handful of them have been able to achieve that milestone yet. Most of the time, effective compartmentalization doesn't work. This is because devoting ourselves to one goal can be difficult – life is a constant loop that doesn't wait for anyone. Therefore, prioritizing luxury or procrastinating a little seems like more viable options. However, Jay Vinson is challenging stereotypes, forging his own identity, and showcasing to the world that indeed "where there is a will, there is might!"

The Man Behind the Curtain:

Jay Vinson may be a business owner, but at heart, he, like most people in the world, is fearful of being left alone. He wants to equip his students with power, make them embrace their weaknesses and flaws rather than run away from them, and provide them with a purpose.

The norm nowadays is to study, get a job, and work. This may seem fascinating at first, but it is nothing short of a monotonous task and, at times, even a stressful one. This is where Jay then steps in to keep the spirits of his students high, motivate them, and make them understand that while life may not always end up as planned, it will lead them to a better road.

Dwelling on rejection is a BIG NO!

Jay is a business owner, so when it isn't performing that well, or the customer response is not as expected, he feels sad and unmotivated. However, that was him in the past.

The new, future him is a more refined, mature version who understands that fear isn't an object; instead, the mind creates it according to a bad situation, and with effort, one can overcome it.

If his customer sales are low, he usually works out, prays to God, and keeps the faith high that others will likely invest in his business and acquire his services. The key here is to exercise patience and let things pass as they are. There is no shortcut to success, and he wants young, aspiring business enthusiasts to understand this brutal reality.

His Coaching alleviates the struggles of others who are suffering:

The most liberated Jay has ever felt is when he is bombarded with comments by the people he is helped, who have nothing but treasure troves of praise to bestow him with.

He wants people suffering from addiction to realize that they are not alone – everyone has a certain test that they must go through in life, but the ones who emerge victoriously are those who embrace it and solve it. Life is like a puzzle, where at times, one will stumble and, on others, climb higher than ever.

It all eventually boils down to the level of commitment and how eager they are to get better. Fitness, diet, a positive mindset, and an unfaltering resolve to get better are the first steps that pave the pathway toward a successful life.

"Addiction is common, and you don't have to be ashamed. The fact that you are trying to get better is what counts". – Jay Vinson.

It all starts with the First Step:

Jay's book "Stepping into Greatness" is full of motivation: Stepping into Greatness will take you on a 50-day journey to exhilaration! That’s right. Stop living a ho-hum existence when the thrill of living hoo-ray is possible! Each of these daily devotions are filled with powerful affirmations that will speak to your heart and mind. Read and meditate on these thoughts daily, weekly, or at whatever pace is right for you. It’s time to step into the greatness that is already inside of you. A victorious life is waiting.
