“I am not afraid of failure I am afraid of succeeding at the things that don’t matter”
~ William Carey ~
Welcome to my blog, a home for unconventional people – people challenging and redefining the status quo, discontent with mediocracy, lovers of grit and excellence. Ultimately, this is a place for those who want to do something that matters and be successful in the things that matter most.
My name is Francisco A. Martinez and I am an ordinary man with extraordinary goals. My mission is to encourage, empower, and equip you to take ownership of your life and play a note worth listening to. Ultimately, my hope is that my writings can help you build a legacy worth telling a story about.
The caveat? I am a man on a mission to bring fame to the Father’s name. While I hope to encourage you towards a whole-life success and a more meaningful life, I want to set before you as the primary motive of your existence a zeal to live to God for His glory and to illustrate His beauty. Our work is merely an effort to uncover the beauty of who He is and the riches of His grace.
In King Solomon’s book, Ecclesiastes, he says “The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like well-driven nails (12:11).” Thus, the aim of my writings is a change in you and me; change for a better tomorrow. There is only one type of change, however, that makes ripples in eternity.
“Should nothing of our efforts stand
No legacy survive
Unless the Lord does raise the house
In vain its builders strive
To you who boast tomorrow’s gain
Tell me what is your life
A mist that vanishes at dawn
All glory be to Christ!”
Therefore, I write for the few and not the masses. I write for those who want to take more risks, yet need more courage. I wrote for those who are brave and willing to admit their failures and weaknesses. I write for those who are discontent with mediocracy and want to serve their tribe better. I write for those who want to create work that matters and impacts. If that’s you, then I am excited to write for you. I thank you in advance for reading and listening.
