In the beginning…

Posted: June 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

Well, here is the start to the journey.  Ringing in my head is “A journey of a million miles starts with the first step.” – author unknown to me.  I am not sure exactly where I am going with this blog, but I do know that I am going.  Ready Fire Aim seems to be the moto anymore and I have to say the results are coming along nicely.  I have definitely had some tremendous learning opportunities, that the nice way of saying I have stumbled, fallen, failed but continue to rise and compete again.  Good news is, in those learning opportunities I have actually done just that and learn a few things.  In my day dreaming, I find my self visualizing some of my mentors both in business and in life, that I have been so fortunate to be around.  I can here my basketball coach in college saying,

“Keep working hard and good things will happen.” – Coach Charles Bradley

“You need to be worried when I stop yelling and screaming at you.” – Coach Lonnie Porter

Its funny how at the time, I didn’t really grasp what they were saying, but I think I do now and something tells me that I will even more in the future.

I have to reflect on my family and friends who have laughed, cried, smiled, walked, talked, supported, loved and been there along side of me during my journey.  If you are reading this and you know who you are, it warms my heart to have you as family and friends and to have shared some amazing experiences with.  I say “thank you” (always look eye) and give you a hug, for teaching me so much about life, love and pursuit of happiness.  Expressing this part of my gratitude deserves so much more, it seems like I could go on here forever.  But instead, I think I will make it a goal and point to show my gratitude in person.

Much much more to come, today is the first day of the rest of my life.
