The end to a Beginning
My vacation was a great one, just as anyone else that is stressed at work or simply tired of the routine lifestyle. I loved catching up with my good friend. But the simple fact that I got away from it all and did something for me. However, that got me thinking that that kind of peace can happen anytime and anywhere I want. I don’t have to leave the city I am currently living in (although I highly recommend that you do at times) to experience clarity and a peace of mind. So one of the task that I am going to work on is to find more activities to enrich my current relationships and enlighten new contacts.
Never too Old to act crazy
When I was in California this past weekend my friend and I did alot of crazy stuff. Where from myself putting my hand in front of a drunk girl (I think she was drunk, but I was pretty gone myself) in Vegas, pissing in front of someone house on the way to the airport because I had alittle too much to drink, or simply saying random things that didn’t make any sense it was needed. Craziness brings out the child that has been in jail because he was and still is told daily that he can’t do something and he must act a certain way.
Go on more vacations, because…

Career is a challenge for me to accept, because it is used so many times to only someone’s occupation. Here are the definitions from dictionary.com on career:
- A chosen pursuit; a profession or occupation.
- The general course or progression of one’s working life or one’s professional achievements: an officer with a distinguished career; a teacher in the midst of a long career.
- A path or course, as of the sun through the heavens.
- Speed: “My hasting days fly on with full career” (John Milton).
9.26/10 people use career to define one’s working life and that mentality or paradigm has to change. There is more to life then the perceived definition of “career”. Many people choose to define their profession as the only thing that they know in life, however I truely believe that people have a more passion for other aspects of their lives. Don’t get me wrong, someone can truely have a skill for the job, but if it is only done to help yourself than it is pointless. So the next time someone ask me how my career is going I am going to tell them that “my mission in life is going great and that I will never rest to helping others achieve their full potentional out of life”.
My definition of a career: “Taking life by the horns and not letting anyone come in my way to achieving my biggest purpose (vague, yes, but it is up to the individual) in life.
Been quite busy with work and the business on the side, but thought it would be a great time to write something. I have been doing alot of things that have been on my mind, but putting a stopage on somethings that brought joy to my life. The one in particular is racing, mainly autoxing, but still a joy. This particular thrill is a classic case of the 80/20 rule, where you race your vehicle through a course for 20% of the time at the event, while the other 80% you are preparing the car, waiting until you start, or talking to new and old friends. However, when you are racing you put more than 80% of your concentration on driving. Well that is besides the point, but the main point of this whole discussion is about losing passion of something you love while learning new and exciting things.
Well one video that brought inspiration and joy to my heart is called F1 perished heroes; view here.
The video brought back the desire to race again, but more importantly the love for life that all of the racers that died. These men didn’t fear anything and I know if they would have been given that same moment in time where it was their last they wouldn’t change one bit of it. They trained hard throughout their lives to get to that very stage to show their families, people who doubted them, and the world that this was their mission in life and that there was nothing no one could do to take their passion away.
So I challenge you to think for sometime to see what your passion is in life and also methodically come up with steps to experience that passion.
