Labake In 14 Ways ..’ – #MeryfulGrace

Met up with Actress & Producer Labake in London for a quick interview. She did not waste time with her answers. Made one more curious of what she had up her sleeves proverbially. She is quite shy off camera. This makes her endearing to fans.

Remember Alex Gede #In14Ways #Fitness #Model

I grew up in a divided home. With my dad and my step mother, two brothers and a sister. Like every typical Nigerian family, mine was big. But I never felt like I belonged. Never felt much love. Never found my place.

I blamed it on my mother not being there for me. So I promised myself I’ll never raise my kids in a divided home. With that, I looked up to religion to keep me on the straight and narrow path.

I had my first relationship when I was 25 and she became my wife and the mother of my two kids. Life as I knew it was done. I’ve ticked all the boxes. Followed the rules to the end. Masters degree holder, my own house, married with two kids (a boy and a girl).

When my marriage failed. The world as I knew it came to an end. My life ended. My religion, family and friends didn’t help in any way, instead, they made things even more complicated and difficult.

I was dead and lost. Lost everything. I was gone completely. But because of my kids, I decided on hang on. Just when I thought I couldn’t anymore, I found fitness and wow has it given me a new life.

I gave up my old believes, most of my friends and family, my banking career and started something new.

After more than 2 years of reconstruction. I now have new goals, new beliefs, new friends and family and 2 years older kids.

My company A-Grade Fitness Ltd is growing stronger and stronger by the day, my new full time job doesn’t make me hate Mondays and the gym is my second home.

I’m Alex, Alex Gede and this is me.

I’m here to tell you that even at the last hour there is hope. After death is the reborn. Never give up, never stop fighting and don’t be afraid to leave people that feed you negative energy behind. It does not mean that they are necessarily bad people. They are just not fanning your flame.

I’m not done yet. I refuse to stop now. So watch this space and see for yourself (from a distance or close by, it’s up to you) what kind of man I’ll become.

Abe Cruz In 14 Ways with Forever Faith

Abe Cruz7 - MercyfulGrace Blog

Abe Cruz: ‘Forever Faith’ – In 14 Ways – http://MercyfulGrace.Blog

Abraham J. Cruz what a pleasure to meet with you in #In14Ways at last. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to get closer to know more about you. We thought this interview would never happen. You are such a busy successful inspiring entrepreneur. If you are not dripped in chocolate (Jay Leno) for your adoring fans, you are dripped in words of inspiration all over your (Forever Faith) brands ..’ So lets get started already in In14Ways ..’

1. How are you today?

I’m Blessed and Great every day, because there is no other option when you see light, and breath air. Amen!!

2. What was life like on millionaire matchmaker when we first saw you

Life at that point was unreal, and unbelievable, because about a year before that I was in prison, and I was told that. I wasn’t going to be able to accomplish anything, or be productive in life. I was in prison being told when to eat and when to sleep.

3. Has Patti changed your life for good with the one in the aftermath

Patti did a great job on working with me, but unfortunately it didn’t work out with the girl I met on the show. She was beautiful, and I hope she is doing well.

4. How has prison affected your focus

It was the biggest blessing of my life, because nothing I have today (physically, spiritually, financially, or mentally) would have come about without hitting rock bottom and going to prison. I was forced to lay on my back, so all I could see was up.

5. Advise for young entrepreneurs

To truly follow their heart and soul, and ask God for direction. Truly believe in God first, and believe in yourself second, and with that combination you can’t lose.

6. Your advise for anyone living a life of crime

Yikes..!! Hurry up and figure out your exit strategy, because I don’t think anybody decides they want to go into a life of crime. Speaking for myself I grew up poor, and wanted a better life for me and my family. And ultimately I know I made the wrong decision, but it was the quickest financial solution to all my financial problems. I would never advise to do it. Remember this… Fast Cash Fast Crash..!!

7. How has faith captured your imagination.

I fully believe in myself. I feel that I will be one of the most powerful men in the world some day, for many different reasons.

8. How have you managed to resolve diversity in America being Latino

I understand at time we are dealing with some racial tension, but I personally do not allow racism, or race, to influence or impact my daily life. I don’t have an ounce of hate in my body, except for idiots. And idiots come in all shapes, sizes, and races. Life overall is about loving, accepting, and encouraging each other.

(MercyfulGrace: Laugh – Laugh – Laugh – Love it !!! Genius. Thank you ..’)

9. Do you believe in after life

Wooh… That’s a good question. The majority of people out there would want me to give a definitive answer, because that’s what is expected in society. But me speaking truthfully, never even gave it a thought. My focus is becoming a better person every day, and doing everything I can to help this world in every way I can. Yes. I believe.

10. Where is home for you

I travel so much. Not sure where home really is…

11. Your ideal get away.

Heading to the beach. Quiet beach. Massage and relaxation all day long… and having sushi. I’m more on the simple side.

12. Who inspires you most

Faith is number one. There’s been a couple of people that triggered some inspiration as well while I was in prison. P.Diddy (Sean John), Jay Cutler (4 time Mr. Olympia), and Jim Rohn (Philosopher).

13. Your greatest legacy will be

That I cared about people. That I lifted up people when they were down.

14. Say a prayer for humanity.

Dear Father God, I come to you for the good and the bad, and today’s specific prayer is to bring humanity together. We are going through some tough, confusing times. Us humans don’t have the answers. So I turn to you, and ask You for direction. I ask you Father God to guide us, because we will only see improvement if we put all our faith in You Father God. I pray this to you Father God in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen

End of Interview

Thank you so much for the interview. You are truly a star and a consummate professional. I’ve picked up a few notes here personally. Goes to show. The best things in life are free and what will be will be. Patience is a real glorious virtue. Furthermore, like to add and end on this note: may God bless you real good. Amen !!!
