HEADING INTO MY MID-THIRTIES I KNEW I HAD MORE TO GIVE. I KNEW THERE WAS A MORE PASSIONATE, PURPOSE-DRIVEN PATH OUT THERE FOR ME TO TAKE – A PATH THAT WAS ON MY TERMS.
What I didn’t realize at the time was that I had been preparing for it my whole life. As a young man I was fearlessly optimistic, very chatty, and very curious. I didn’t believe that there was a problem that couldn’t be solved, and at the time that was perceived by others to be naive. That fearlessness of change was something that I was to lose sight of temporarily in my life, but proved later on down the line to be the attitude that would expand my whole world.
