It’s been almost 18 months since my opponent, Status Quo, knocked me on my ass.
I stood up and went to my corner. My nemesis taunted me from across the ring while a proverbial referee started to count me out.
I focused on what I could control – my attitude and my effort. I was a motivated and compliant fighter.
The hospital released me two weeks early for good behavior and better health.
When I arrived home from the hospital, my wife, our families, our pets, our friends, therapists, and specialists came to “my corner.”
I strengthened my four bodies: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. I am now awake, alert, and aware.
In a rematch with Status Quo, I am proud to announce that I have defeated my opponent. I won the fight!
Now, I’m ready to be in your corner!
Why? We can’t fight our way out of dark corners by ourselves. As others helped me recover and win the toughest fight of my life, I want to help you feel the exhilaration of defeating a tough opponent, your Status Quo.
How? I know I can’t do it alone. I need a community to help me. We may not change the lives of all the people in the world, but we can change all the world for one person. And that will mean success.
Who? If you are reading this then hopefully you believe what I believe. You are someone who is ready to make a change, for yourself and for the world. I hope you will accept my open invitation to be a part of this fledgling community. We need one another!
What? I am going to keep writing – blog posts and books. I want to begin speaking. I want to build a comfortable place where like-minded individuals can gather, share their stories, help heal others, and in turn, heal themselves. I may not know what the “architecture” looks like yet, but I think we can help wake up the world. For example, a church does not need a cathedral to be a congregation.
When? The time is NOW. It is time to transform our thoughts, hopes, and prayers into action.
It is time for change. It’s time to fight Status Quo.
Let us stand in the corner of those who are struggling in their fight. Let us give support.
It’s time to raise our arms in victory. It’s time to celebrate.
Be Kind. Be Thankful. Be Significant.
