I try my hardest to not make my posts on here personal…however I have to express my personal emotions for a moment. Just a few weeks ago I was speaking to a young man who’s been incredibly amped about fitness and his promising future. We discussed his athletic career, why he’s always smiling, how he stays in shape and what he could do with KRAVE and KRAVE Fit magazines. His name was Reginald Doucet.
Reggie was the football star who everyone knew and liked and who always cracked jokes and made people smile…and also very kind.
He was shot and killed this morning by the LAPD, while unarmed. The reports say that he was resisting arrest and fighting the officers but for the life of me I cannot understand why they’d shoot to kill an unarmed man.
I’ve sat here for the last hour or so trying to debate if I’d post something so personal…but I believe its important for us to celebrate the life of the people who are a positive influence. And Reggie was definitely that.
We’ll miss you man…

The navy suit has been the recommended interview/business suit of choice for a very long time. Some have even referred to it as their “sincere blue” suit, suggesting that the color of the suit conveys a message of honesty and transparency to potential employers or business constituents.
Sincerity, simply means to be free from deceit, hypocrisy, or duplicity. People who are sincere are also said to be genuine and honest.
How does a man look sincere, despite what he’s wearing? My recommendation is just BE sincere. That sounds silly, but it’s true. To be deceptive, misleading, or disingenuous may at times seem more expedient, but in the end, it usually comes back to bite you in the seat of your not-so-sincere blue.
There is no complex formula for becoming a more sincere person. It’s accomplished through consistently saying and doing the right thing. At times, being sincere may not be as eye-catching as the necktie that you wore to give your suit its pop factor, but it’s almost always respected and appreciated.
