I have been 30 for a little bit over a month. I have had people ask me what it feels like to 30.
This is going to be a long one just to let you guys know.
First of all, I want like to thank everyone who I have already cross paves with so far.
I know that is a ton of people out there that helped shape who I am today. I would to thank all of the amazing people and mentors I have made along the way.
I would like to thank my beautiful girlfriend for showing me what unconditional love is. Her love and state of being when she is with me is amazing. She always supports me no matter what crazy venue or business idea I have and want to do.
I love all of the teachers I had have at Rosa International Middle School and Cherry Hill West. That was really cool being the first class to go to a school that just opened up back in 2002. The IB and MYP program was really interesting and fun. There are so many ambitious people and really taught me the value of hard work.
Cherry Hill West was some of the most interesting and fun times of my life. All of the teachers are amazing. Thank you so much for teaching me the value of education and the curiosity for learning. I am blessed to reconnect with you all every once in awhile.
This amazing coaching journey so far with 23 other super cool and inspiring leaders out there literally changing the world and doing this work themselves. The leadership team especially Mark and Christine who taught me that literally anything is possible. My mentor Coach Alex who pushes me every week all of the tears and sweat I put in every week but still standing for me even though I complain about how hard the work is sometimes.
My family for being themselves. They are so true and authentic to themselves with no apologies. The support and unconditional love no matter what. I am starting to understand the value of family and how powerful support can really be if just trust is given.
The crazy ride and sales journey. I can write a whole another blog post about that alone.
To the folks who told me I can never been a good salesperson. The energy I get to prove you wrong and the life long dedication to becoming better at this craft of working with people. It is so much fun and rewarding. The challenges and heartaches of it all.
My spiritual journey is an interesting one. I went to churches when I was younger but would not consider myself spiritual to right now really seeing the energies and the connectedness we all have. Being able to spread the love and joy for life gives me so much pleasure and profound sense of purpose.
Sammy’s family who treats me like one of their own. I cry sometimes from the amount of happiness, joy, and love I get from my new family.
All of the people who took time out of their busy day to help me even with what at the time seems like harsh critiques. Really pushing me to think a different way. I appreciate that as well.
I love my college days and joining a brotherhood full of leaders and like minded individuals pushing the boundaries of life and achieving such greatness.
What is different now than 2 months ago was I was still in 20s?
I do see my identity shaping. I am less about trying to please others and really have started to develop a sense of my identity and what I care about in life.
Making a difference and leaving a strong footprint on the world. Every life I interact with, I am much more intentional about my words and actions. My interactions and the way I view life. It can really have a big impact because there is so much greatness around. The world is so interesting and amazing.
The journey of Crossfit on my health has helped me realized how important it is the things I put into my body. I’ve dedicated thousands of hours of fitness, Is it worth to drink that beer to negate all of that work?
Being a Nutrition major has helped me learn so much about my physical limits and what is truly capable.
My work as a life coach and being in sales has helped me figure out mentally what the major roadblocks are for people. Why our words do not align with our actions.
The type of work we do is so rewarding and there is so much more to learn.
I would like to thank Davis and Regina for their commitments and being doctors literally saving the world.
Rick and Hannah for showing us how relationships and love can form naturally and organically. What an example and foundation for true love.
The coaches at Solace on 32nd St. for pushing my mental limits every week when I feel like my body is going to break and I can’t even walk up the stairs. Now I know that there is so much more out there.
All of the fascinating folks I have met at Ivy so far who is changing the world on a Macro scale.
Rutgers Pdpsi where fun, play, and brotherhood came so easily. Those basketballs days playing for 5 hours a day until 1am during the summers. I will never forgot those days where we would work out for literally ten hours a day.
The hundreds of hours of waiting tables meeting interesting people traveling from all places and corners of the world, thousands of cold calls battling it out to help add value in every single touch point.
I am extremely grateful for this amazing journey called life. It’s been really profound to see the difference I am making. So whenever any of you writes to me saying thank you for your 5 things I am grateful for or even take the time of your busy lives to read this. It means a lot to me that you care.
