The list of amazing names piling up for "The Path We Take" is incredible. I honestly foresee within the year, having some very big public names on board. The diversity and passion in the incredible stories that are being captured presently is a testament to our resilience, our purpose and inherent ability to overcome, if we keep on going for that extra day, that extra mile, that extra hurdle.
There have been a few people I have met since 2015 that have moved me in such a way, and I am very proud to be sitting with them shortly, to see just how they did it all. The human condition truly is seen best when trying to raise others.
Back in the early 90's I wrote a poem inspired by the Oklahoma bombing. It was called "Harness the Rage" It talks a little about overcoming, about harnessing those thigns that would typically break us.
Take the rage of everything that you have ever felt a fury for.
The loss of a child. A senseless act of violence against
someone so unsuspecting or frail. The prejudice that
devours society like cancer. The Countless thousands
that have lost their lives in the name of god, honor or country....
Even the sand that has too many times been kicked into your
Take the rage of all this, the mind numbing infuriating rage
of it. Harness it, focus it, unleash it, towards the betterment
of yourself or the world, to strive to make a change in any
positive way, using the rage as fuel, the focused anger of all
that devours your very spirit and soul, to push you to attain
that much needed goal.
Harness the Passion, the passion from the music that sparks a
fire within your soul. The music that drives you with inhuman
power and strength to go that extra mile, that extra rep, that
extra day. The passion for the love that heaven nor hell, Man
nor beast keep you away from.
Harness the energy from every fiber, every cell, every part
of your being. Focus it, unleash it, in a laser beam tunnel
vision of dreams, ambition and hunger for the success you desire.
Even with this effort, you may not become the best or the
greatest, but you will become the best, the greatest, you can be...!
"Life, Live it with pride"
