We have heard a lot of success stories coming from different people in various fields. Although these stories differ from one another, there is common ground – their determination to move on and the drive towards living their principle in life. When talking about success, failures, and determination, there is only one man that comes into my mind and that is Ray Mills – the Front Runner of Justice and Success.
Ray Mills, a 34-year old entrepreneur who is happily married and blessed with three wonderful children, grew up in College Park in Georgia which has been popularly associated with crimes. Living in this type of community, as what one of the travel books describe as a nightmarish southern ghetto, it did not hinder Ray to find his purpose and be successful in life.
Ray Mills is an American entrepreneur, best-selling author, podcast executive producer, and a community activist. He is a millionaire businessman who founded “The Mills Academy” which aims to provide a safe, peaceful, and nurturing learning environment for children located in his hometown. He had written his famous book, “Let’s start a business.” which entails in-depth details on starting your journey in the entrepreneurial world from a business concept to execution of strategies. If you are planning to engage the realm of business, buying and understanding this book is a must. Also, he shared his learning about life by writing his book entitled “Positively Living”. It aims to help people achieve their dream of living their life’s purpose that what matters most in life is being optimistic in everything and thinking beyond possibilities.
Despite being busy with his schedule and running over his company, he does not deviate from his life’s purpose of a symbol of justice for those unheard voices. There is a big story behind the foundation of the non-profit organization which he co-founded called “Run for Justice”. The killing of an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown inspired Mills and Hall to embark on a 540-mile journey from Atlanta to Ferguson, Missouri by running, in the hope of making a difference – change in the image of African-American as well as pay tribute to the boy. One line from Ray that struck the world and left an opening ear to us all, “I had a reason to run, not to run from my problems, but to run towards a problem and run for the problems of the world and the problems of America and what’s going on now.” Truly, Ray Mills is a runner for success with a purpose-driven life.
