An Edgy, Uncompromising Approach to Personal Achievement and Lasting Change by C. J. Ortiz
One great thinker defined a “calling” as the most important thing you can do with your gifts, talents, and abilities, in which you are the most difficult to replace. In other words, the more irreplaceable you are, the closer you are to your calling.
In my life, helping others to achieve success in every area of their lives is my calling, and I fulfill this mission by utilizing all of my abilities, skills, and passions. Nothing is left out of it.
However, success means much more than status, money, or possessions. For me, success means “maximizing your resources for a purpose greater than yourself,” and in my opinion, that’s the only thing that will bring fulfillment—and fulfillment is an enduring, deeper sense of happiness.
Each month, I reach hundreds of thousands of people as my articles, postcards, status updates, and videos are distributed and shared on multiple forms of social media, and I daily receive numerous messages and emails of individuals testifying of massive life transformations.
For the past 25 years, I’ve raised kids into adulthood, served as a dedicated husband, counseled and coached clients, ran my business, edited magazines, ran a publishing label, and spoken to thousands of people in the U.S. and abroad.
Twenty-three years ago, I graduated with a degree in visual communications and after graduation, built a successful branding/design/marketing business that now handles clients in both profit and non-profit businesses and organizations.
Still, my passion is people whether they’re struggling to overcome an addiction, or they’re a CEO trying to position their company for maximum profit.
And… I’m a metal head! That means I love heavy metal, and I’ve incorporated that outlook into my personal development philosophy. The teaching has little to do with the music. It’s really about the outlook and healthy aggression that parallels the music.
