How My Day Went

Today was very laid back, got up late and didn't really do much after that but read. I ran across a couple of things that really caught my attention. One was Big Harry Audacious Goals; basically what that means is we have to think big. Too often we don't think much of ourselves. We have a tendency to think other people are better than us or born with special ability. And when you think like this, you have a tendency to say, "what the heck," but watch out.  We must have a certain level of unreasonable confidence. A confidence to say I can go with what others say they can't. Too often our friends and family become our worst enemies by telling us we are going to look like a fool if we fail. 

One of the stories that really caught my attention today was about a mountain climber that decided to climb a great mountain. To the climber, climbing this mountain without a rope was doable, but to all the bystanders it looked fool hearted. This climber knew that with proper training and concentration, she could make the climb. But it also gave her a challenge. She knew if she fell, she would die, but was confident in her ability. In order to be successful in life you have to take on tasks that sometimes may look like they are going to kill our careers or reputation or brand. However, it's these steps that separate a visionary from the ordinary. I have never wanted to be ordinary. 

So I am setting some goals for myself and my family and friends. Some I discuss with people that may laugh and call me a fool but I have been training and I feel perfectly confident in my skills. I hope that you all like the piece that my guy did last night, The Power of Focus. I am really amazed at the effect that I am having on the guys on this compound and the love and respect that they are giving me. This gives me that fool hearted confidence that makes me feel that I can take on any task that is put before me. I hope that you all stick around for the ride cause it's going to be a rocky road from here on out.  See Rick Fly.

Peace and Love

Hey Ricky,

I started reading your blog about a year ago, and have found it interesting, to say the least.

Sorry, I meant to say I started about a month ago, I don't even know if you've been blogging for a year.
