_Today I got a great message from an old friend:
“Its been a long time - sorry to hit you up out of the blue. I've been working on a project that is going to be opening next week, and I wanted to invite you to the opening party. You were a huge influence for me way back then when I was working for you, and I don't think I would be where I am today if is was not for you. I really appreciate you taking me under your wing when I was so young.”
What a great compliment, Thank you, thank you!
_Many years ago, when we were young, my girlfriend at that time made a comment, “you are always exciting people, you are always trying to change the way they think… keep in mind, not everyone is like you. Some are happy with their lives, others are not willing to risk it…”
Well, at that time I disagreed with her and with time she understood what I was trying to do.
_All of us have a dream yet the majority of us do not know where to begin.
On the other hand, some of us, “the old school” have managed to build something, have managed to follow our passions. We have learned from our failures and successes and have plenty of experiences and knowledge: knowledge that should be shared!
We, “the experienced ones” have the obligation help people to find their purpose.
We have the obligation to spark that light, to get people excited about their passions.
We have the obligation to motivate young people to be in control of their lives, of their future.
Our job is to cultivate a new generation with principles and strengths that will promote a positive impact in this world.
We might not be able to get everybody moving, yet if we manage to change one person’s life, we have done it right!

Who I am today as a person is largely due to my failures!
