Kinja’s Bio

Kinja was often accused of having an identity crisis because he never attached his self-image to a particular color, religion or nationality. In his younger years he was often teased and even physically attacked because of his unique perspective. In 2013, as a real estate sales executive, when Kinja became internationally recognized for becoming the first and only person to win the Gold Stevie and American Resort Development awards in the same year, no one knew that his ability to universally connect with all people started way before his sales career began. That year after receiving the second award he was hired to speak about his life process for the very first time and was so inspired that at 34 years old he followed his gut instinct. He retired from Wyndham Worldwide Corporation and decided to assist others on their journeys for the remainder of his life. The rest is history.

In today’s divisive global climate, Kinja’s life practice has become an essential part in helping thousands of people re-align their life values. For many years he admits that he was ashamed to talk about the key ingredient to his continued progression; his deep love for human connection. With the mixture of over 20 years of gradual improvement in his Holistic Life Grade(HLG), besides speaking around the world, he’s created many tools of Re-Creation for his variety of audiences. In January 2014, he released his first book, Universal Talk Laws, followed by an online interactive training program, Dixonondemand.com in 2016. The life mastery manual, Re-Creationism, The Art of Shaping Reality was released in August of 2018, and his first young adult novel, Lil Solar’s Book of Superpowers hit the shelves in April of 2019.

Kinja’s future cannot be predicted, but helping our humanity’s value increase will always be his top priority.

The Art of Re-Creation

Birth. Pre-School. Kindergarten. Elementary School. High School. College. Career. Retirement. Death.

During this life course, when do most of us lose the excitement needed to maintain peak performance? Hundreds of college students have told Kinja the pressures set by parents, teachers, deadlines, and post college debt does have an impact on their optimism levels. Coping mechanisms are formed and by the time work life starts, several college grads end up dealing with the ongoing pressures of new responsibilities in ways that aren’t in alignment with their fullest potential.

“Once you get(set goal) the rest of the journey will be smooth sailing.”

This myth mixed with the pressures of life originally blurred Kinja’s vision as well. His set goal was a career, a high yearly income and corporate recognition from his real estate sales career. In 2009, he was forced to hit his Life Reset Button and completely rearranged his life’s priorities. Many students across the globe have taken his misconceptions and layered unbreakable foundations for themselves. Service Before Self, Inclusion or Delusion, and Labels Set Limits are just a few of the applied mindsets that have been interwoven into his experiences with college campuses.

The Art of Re-creation takes Kinja’s 20 years of career experience and shares practical strategies on how to live progressively before, during and after graduation. In this interactive keynote filled with scene reenactments, activities and many chances for audience self reflection, Kinja shares the steps towards his original self-imprisonment and the subsequent transformation. Each person leaves with a customized road map of their strengths, areas of opportunities and methods to press their Life Reset Buttons.

Finally, for the student leaders, officers and professional staff looking to continue the conversations within their teams, Kinja’s second book, Re-Creationism, The Art of Shaping Reality is a great accessory to add to their organizations tool kit.

Purpose is Progressive…

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” As kids, we all were asked this question.

“What do you want your major to be?” As college students, we all are asked this question.

Both questions result in an answer that is usually headed towards one set path.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, over a third of American adults are college educated, and out of the approximately 100 million full-time employees, 51 percent say they are “not engaged” at work meaning they feel no real connection to their jobs and tend to do the bare minimum. Even with the best intentions, many college students end up settling for employment instead of pursuing their unique passion driven missions.

After his time in U.S. Air Force, Kinja Dixon was that statistic for the first five years of his employment. Being on his own, a supervisor with great pay according to his post-military standards and receiving recognition set him up for work-life filled with smooth sailing. One day he came into work to find out that his company was closing in three months. At 24 years old he was forced into a new industry (real estate) and within a decade(or ten years) of his first sale, he retired as the number one sales executive in the world.

This program will not only dive deep into his day to day routine, but also the mindset that creates an ongoing increase in each student’s daily college and work life performance. Kinja will share several practical steps to help students align their college life with their lofty intentions after graduation; even if surprises may happen. Today’s college student has more opportunities than ever before, but without realizing that their PURPOSE IS PROGRESSIVE, speed bumps often turn into road blocks instead of stepping stones.

  • The difference between aspiration and realization.
Cancer of Competition

From very young ages, with the mixture of grades, sibling rivalries and team sports, competing has become a normal part of many students lives and without realizing it. Many college graduates end up losing themselves in the process of doing their best to be better than others.

When it comes to the pressure of competition, Kinja was losing for more than half of his life. In a commissioned sales environment, without learning to quickly adapt getting squeezed out inevitable. He conformed and shortly thereafter, he started “crushing the competition”, but the ways he dealt with his ongoing anxiety where; nightly celebratory happy hours with colleagues, unhealthy eating habits and unrelenting desire to get more. Based on his doctor’s observations, Kinja’s coping mechanisms for managing the competitive work environment were deteriorating his health and future.

Taking a look in the mirror, Kinja saw a reality that he wasn’t willing to accept any further. Through daily creative action, Kinja has redefined the word competition. It has lead him to overcome his biggest obstacles. For over a decade he has committed to a life of sobriety and contribution, compassion and acceptance. This program is not about pushing Kinja’s personal choices, rather sharing the process in which Kinja was able to find clarity in winning the battle against himself. Everyone has their own set of coping mechanisms and understanding these is the first step to creating balance.

November 1st 2009: The Day Everything Changed

Once over 21 years of age, drinking alcohol is a legal part of our global culture and regardless of how anyone feels, it’s here to stay. When it comes to this topic, one’s perspective is usually consistent with how they felt after swallowing their first sip; alcohol makes everything a little more fun. For the average college student, hearing the fun side of life without alcohol is definitely not normal. Unfortunately, when it comes to the war on alcoholism within many college campuses, enforcing restrictions, sharing baffling statistics and other fear-based strategies are the primary ways used to combat its effects. How has that approach been working?

As of August of 2018, the most recent statistics from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) indicate that drinking by college students ages 18 to 24 contributes to an estimated 1,519 student deaths each year. In addition, there are an estimated 696,000 assaults by another student who has been drinking and 97,000 cases of sexual assault or date rape each year.

After taking his first sip of alcohol at the age of 16, Kinja had 14 years of alcohol exposure until he decided to start drinking from another cup. On November 1st 2009, his first day of alcohol-free living started. In the beginning it was scary and he felt like the oddball in many situations, but within 3 months he learned how to enjoy parties, social events and ceremonies without feeling left out. During the last 10 years of his life, his physical, emotional, mental and spiritual grades have increased while having the most fun of his life. From skydiving and running three full marathons to working with emotionally unstable foster children and training in kung-fu with a Shaolin master in China, the range of adventures has been vast, fulfilling and enlightening. This program explores his whys and hows in detail while providing each audience member with tools to assist with their future drinking decisions.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending this program, students will learn:

  • Ways to design a customized replacement habit strategy if alcohol abuse is detected
  • To identify the signs of functional alcoholism,
  • The 3 step process to “life re-alignment”, and
  • How to provide support to peers who want to stay sober.
