The Nightmare is OVER!!!
WOW! What a year! All I can say, and I’ll bet all of you agree is thank the good Lord above that it’s almost over.
A crazy new virus that locked down the whole world, vacations canceled, sports seasons canceled, work for pretty much a lot of people reinvented, social gatherings reinvented, and a whole lot of different changes to our way of life. But, with all darkness, there is light. There is always something positive to what had happened over the past year. Now I cannot speak for you I can share with you the positive changes that has happened to me personally.
Change #1: I realized that working part time in a gym and fulltime at a hospital was just not working for me. So, when the lock down happened, I stopped working at the gym and focused my attention to the hospital. But that wasn’t just the end of it. I had a spark (an idea to take health counseling online), and that spark became a fire (hooked up with my old web developer), and then I tried to put the fire with napalm (paid Mr. Brian Rose at London Real to help me put this online), and here we are.
Change #2: Had the opportunity to slow down only to hit warp drive. Another side effect of stopping at the gym was the ability to slow down a bit, regroup, reload, and re-engage. This is not a new concept. I have kind of taken it from Jocko Willink, an ex US Navy SEAL commander. Who has influenced me in ways that I don’t think he could ever imagine? Why? Why him? Well considering his track record in helping people better themselves take extreme ownership of their lives. He’s an ex US Navy SEAL commander of the most decorated units in all of the Iraqi conflict (Tank unit Bruiser) he only lost 2 men! In all of his tours combined! ONLY 2! That’s pretty impressive.
Change #3: Re found the love for work once again. Well this is priceless, and I feel like the most luckiest human being in the world. Am I tired? Now that is the understatement of the century. I’m exhausted, and I don’t care. I am loving every minute of it. In the day I get to play around with computers and work with a great team, in the evening I get to play with friends from around the world and I also have an amazing team that pushes me to be the best version of myself. So, yeah, I may be exhausted, but I am loving every minute of it. It feels amazing to be ALIVE right now!
So, these are some of the positives that I have had in all of this craziness of a year. I am sure that you have had your own. I want you to remember one thing, I hope you used the lock down to better yourself, as person and not dwell in the negativity that surrounded us earlier in the year.
With that I am going to sign off and I see you all next week.
