What is happiness💬 ⛱ Happiness is the foundation of your purpose. It is what we create and make us. Three things affect our happiness. Our current occupations 👌🏽: research says we spend on average 56 hours a week (we don’t party 56 hours a week), Our Relationships affect our happiness 💯; a relationship is an understanding between two or more people once you realize your purpose, you can adjust those relationships to those who will help/hurt your goals. Lastly, Volunteering🌎, I bet if you find $10 on the ground today, you will feel a forever changing gratitude instead of spending it on yourself for short term moment. And remember, anything you do in life requires serving…Money comes from the people that we serve, why not be happy upon doing so 🤔 #FindYourPurpose #LiveMore 🔛🔛🔛 http://www.llvnyc.com ▪️◾️◼️
About two years ago today, I met this young boy named Elajia. Elajia reminds me a lot of myself when I was young; very soft spoken at first, but open hearted and eccentric once you get to know him. He’s an athletic, great young student whom could just use some guidance, a roll model and big brother he wants to resemble to. I am blessed to have a mentor that has taught me almost everything i know. Without him, I am sure things would not be the same, and I am forever thankful. I want to thank the Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization for giving me the opportunity to be a mentor for Elajia and other young bright minds of tomorrow. These young boys and girls are indeed our future. However we must guide them on how good our future should be. Making small decisions at an early age, having a brother or a sister that has been in their shoes, could change their life! Not forgetting, “The great thing in life is to keep your mind young-” Henry Ford.

William De La Cruz ‘aka Motivation’ is a Dominican Native out of Washington Heights, New York. Will is well described by his peers and mentors as creatively original, spontaneous and bold of a personality for a relentless drive to excellence; his family being his thread and screensaver for motivation.
Growing up in the heart of a drug known neighborhood can be the answer and an “easy path'” for a young one to provide financial stability for any lower-income family. I am among those who’s perspective have been widen by my own life experiences. I have been grateful to have encountered mentors whom turned into family. Feel free to stop reading if this bores you. However, you just might grow upon a similar or even distinctive outlook, and adapt it to your own-current situation. After all, are greatest assets in life are people. You never know what I can offer you, and I will wisely listen and grasp upon your life. I will learn something from you and use it to my advantage. Leverage is what ultimately keeps us on top afterall.
That is what I always sought growing up, LEVERAGE. If you type this word in on google and search up its definition a bunch of ‘smart words’ and definitions start popping up; all meaning the same thing…”use (something) to maximum advantage,” is what I wanted to gain on my ongoing strive to be on top.
Just as any young kid growing up in the “hood” research says that you will hang out with the wrong people and encounter certain influences. During middle school years, I was among that research study.
A breezy, sunny afternoon for example after a dreadful day of talking to girls and getting into trouble during class; Three young Men, all matching with black bandanas behind their loose, dangling cut jeans and latest Jordan’s, walk up to me on this dreary day.
As I walk by 189 St Park, the three men call me over and begin to “Press” me about “why are you talking to my sister,” said the middle one as they surround me behind parked parked vehicles. The guys begin speaking nonsense making up stories about “their sister,” I never met or had any idea of what they are speaking to me about. Next thing you know, it’s not about no sister they are speaking about, The 14k necklace dangling around my neck was what the three men were after as the middle guy punches me in the nose so hard the guys knuckles got numb , and I had some blood dripping down like a water facet. By the way, the picture of my nose would have not looked good on my mother’s livingroom frame.
The three guys ofcourse snatched that necklace my grandma had given me as an infant and they run off with it as if the cops were on scene.
It was only them and my anger after stopping my pursuit when one of them pulls a black 9 inch caliber.
They were picked up by Black Honda Car with Red Interior and huge sourround system playing some Loud Rap and drove off with my gold necklace.
The point and irony of this story is that years later, many things had changed. A Ballroom Dancer recognize in competition (aside from my Bachata/Merengue skills I love to show off to) a Baseball athlete with many opportunities between scholarships/grants to many Div I,II,III institution and most importantly the first man on my family tree to attend College.
I worked hard the summer of my freshman year of college to obtain my first car, an old beat up 2001 Hyundai I pimped up. I decided to attend Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts 15 minutes away from New York Yankees rival Home, the Boston Red Sox… go figure.
Long story long as I always make it; during Winter break I drives back home to Washington Heights to visit the family, as I stop on a red light before making that left turn on 190 St Nicholas, already smelling the Rice and Beans plate my mom had ready for me: I see the same three men whom had taken that necklace from me 7 years ago; wearing the same old ripped jeans dangling from their knees and a joint on the middle guys left ear while the 19 year old me is getting his degree over looking my past and making sure I sets an example for the kids that have encountered similar experiences.
Life is like a straight line, and you can fall left and right and take the path of drugs, party, mischief still hurting your community, or you can get up from that line and help change it and pick someone else up setting an example.
Just one of many memories .
LoveLiving was created as a pathway to promote a healthy life style of positivity through stories of joy, pictures of life and videos of the way we go by our day that establishes longevity. LiveMore.
No catch. Just watch my site, and take in the moments and incorporate them into your life.
You want to feel better and look healthier? Watch some videos of mine as I show you some fundamental ways of doing so.
Do you have aspirations of traveling? Watch my experiences and send me yours, I’ll post them here!
You see, my goal has always been to find my purpose, my reason of living, my reason of waking up every morning, what are YOU living for!?
I want to forget the advertisements, the catch, the money, if you want to donate, fine, if you want to purchase some apparel because you think it will help you stay within your goals, then do so; however my goal has always been to do something that’s bigger than myself, that’s bigger then all of us.
There are countless trainers; websites, Youtube videos, that speak about their way to get the “Ultimate Six Pack Abs,” or “Loose weight in 30 days,” fine, I’m not taking anything away from those websites or posts, all LoveLiving is trying to establish is a way every race, religion, culture, age can connect to…INSTANTLY!
Afterall, we all need a motivation from time to time. We all need optimism. If you know me, you know how positive of a person I am. Everyone has downfalls, and I CANT possibly understand the depths of them, the depths of that loving one, that relationship you have shared. I do understand people, and know we all need a shoulder to cry on or maybe a ridiculous video to watch from time to time. I will be that person that makes a fool out of himself to make you smile, I’ll take that hit and go viral on WorldStar 😉
Goal here is to simply want love for YOUR LIFE, nobody else’s. Just click on the latest workout video or even meal prep for a big fight or dress your trying to fit into. I got you. May God Bless you and hope you #LoveLiving.
