Reflecting on Life

blog Jan 26, 2012

Last week I described my four amazing trips. One thing I left out is that they had an incredible impact on the way I way I look at my life and my goals for this year. Each one reminded me of where I’ve been and where I want to go.


Not only was I was in a room with twelve amazing professionals, but I felt that I belonged in that room. I met Larry Winget someone I have followed intently since ‘05. I also got to meet Joe Calloway, another incredible speaker. I learned a lot and was also reminded of everything I already know. When we get stuck, we often question our own abilities. This past year has been a whirlwind and it is time to pursue my goals with a vengeance. The conference reminded me of that and has given me more confidence than I’ve had in a while.


One of my biggest victories early on was being a small part of the USC football team family. I spoke for them, I got to go on the field before the home games, and it felt like I was a celebrity. Coach Carroll also viewed me as an author and as someone who understood life. There’s a part of me that loves the celebrity status speaking brings.


I got to spend time with the most wonderful woman. Leslie and I spent time together as a couple. She is my balance between every crazy idea I have running through my head. When I’m with her or talking to her, nothing else matters in that moment. That’s an amazing feeling for a neurotic guy like me. I can’t wait for her to come here in April or May so that we can be a couple.


There’s just something about Hawaii I can’t explain. I absolutely love it. I spent a week alone with my best friend Patrick, who I have known since second grade…over a quarter of a century. There was a calm brought to me when I was in Hawaii, which reminded me of what life is really about.
