Paul A. Blake

I am Paul A. Blake I am a man who has defied several odds. Hailing from the beautiful parish of Manchester, I am the eldest of five children born to Brenton Blake and Joan Hynes on September 4, 1973.

Labelled a slow learner and growing up in abject poverty I was told very early in life that I would amount to nothing much in life. I suffered from low self-esteem and self-worth, and for a long time, I did not believe I was good enough to be among the best.

I received a scholarship to Manchester High School in 1986 but still did not do very well because of the issues mentioned above. Graduating in 1991 I was only able to  three of the five subjects I attempted in the Caribbean Examination Council exams (CXC).

Transitioning to adult life proved challenging for me because I did not know what I wanted to do with my life. This led me to try my hand at several vocations which included mechanic, merchandiser, hotel cashier and salesman. At this point, it seemed like the negative prophecies spoken over my life in the past were coming true. I found myself sliding down the slippery slope of wasted potential and unfilled dreams.

Then my turning point came June 10, 1998, the World Cup began (yes I am a football fanatic). I became a Christian and found my calling into ministry, inspiring and motivating people to discover their passion and fulfil their purpose. 

I have taken on for myself the words of Jesus Christ in John 10: 10 “I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly”.

I believe that we are all created to experience an abundant life here on earth, but many people just don’t know how. I want to help people break free from their chains of doubt and mediocre living by changing the way they think about themselves.

I am a proud alumnus of the University of the West Indies, a full-time minister serving the Independence City Church of Christ, a lecturer with the National Youth Service, a father, and husband. I am the author of Words to Inspire Volumes one and two and CEO & Founder of Words Worthit Motivational Speaking and Training Co. Ltd. I have done several presentations locally and internationally sharing my challenges and victories. I am an agent of change; I am a testimony that past circumstances cannot define the glorious future that we have before us. My mantra is “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”.
