"GOAT VS. SHEEP" - by MikeCon Photography (Castle Rock Photographer)

As I'm getting ready to hit the gym this morning to get tortured by my trainer Allyson, I started thinking about "GREATNESS".

Every single person that carries the title of the G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time) throughout time has never been a "sheep".  They don't just follow what everyone else is doing, going, or believe in.  They're constantly aiming for higher goals/levels within themselves and doing their best to achieve and not go backwards in life.  They're never making excuses.

They love winning at almost everything; more than life itself.  They also like being around other winners with the right mentality and attitude, yet separating themselves from the mediocre with not just talent, but hard work.  They love what they do, even in a bad spot, and can turn their fears into accomplishments by overcoming them.  If they make a mistake, they reflect and learn, but don't dwell...they excel!  Think about Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, Michael Jordan, or if you want to go Biblical look at Jesus.  They never really complained at 1all about the hardships they had to overcome, and looked at the bigger picture and didn't think about themselves selfishly.  As much as I love Terrell Owens and others like him that are boastful, they're always the ones who get snubbed from everyone because the only thing about them that most people remember is their attitude and/or negative attitudes.  

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 will truly define what G.O.A.T.'s truly are because they have love for it all!

Do your best to be a G.O.A.T. and not a sheep!  Sheep don't usually survive in the "long game", and most are just flashes in the pan (fools gold).  Once again...whining isn't winning.  Remember, everything that glitters isn't gold, and the great ones are like diamonds because with heat, pressure and time, they're more oftentimes forged to be priceless!

 

Have a blessed day!

Thank you all for making the time to listen.  Hopefully, I can get the folks at Nikon to take a listen as well.

POETIC JUSTYCE SENIOR PHOTO SHOOT -by MikeCon Photography "Castle Rock Photographer"

What a day...WHAT.  A.  DAY!!!  Meet my newest friend Justyce!  He attends Overland High School and is a Senior for the Class of 2017.  This young man has a natural knack for being comfortable in front of the camera.  He literally challenged me during this shoot to ensure I was giving him perfection and it made me a better photographer during the process to push my technical skills.  This young man is definitely going places in the future!  He's strong, ambitious, intelligent and very fashionable!  I'm honored to have him in my Tribe!

 

SENIOR PHOTO SHOOT WITH BROOK -by MikeCon Photography "Castle Rock Photographer"

So a few months ago, I was asked by one of my fitness friends IFBB Pro Marilena Echohawk to do her daughter's senior pictures.  Brook is a senior at Legacy High School in Broomfield, CO.  Here are a few images that we took while in downtown Denver. 

Of course this was Brook's very first professional photo shoot, however with me, her boyfriend, and her Mother there to assist me with the shoot, Brooke pulled off some magnificent shots!       High school seniors, and parents...don't wait too late to have your photos done.  Just message me via the "Contact Me" section of my website.
