Trying to figure out why you're on earth?
You know, we see so many people shining their trophies and selling us their models for success:
Financial independence. Worldwide notoriety. Material splendor.
External victories that collect dust on the shelf.
I have some trophies too, but they're below the surface:
Wounds healed. Obsessions overcome. Mission clarified.
Interior victories that only increase in value.
The trophies I value didn't come from "winning" in life, but rather, by facing adversity as I pursued big goals, gaining perspective and losing ego in the process.
I have a long way to go, but as I see people around me chasing and shining hollow trophies, I feel called to share my scars so that others can pursue the trophies that matter.
I don't preach at you from the summit; I equip and encourage you along the path. Let's climb it.
I can't exhibit perfection. I can only encourage a method of finding peace. Let's enjoy it.
I can't offer a formula for achievement. I pledge a shared mission for purpose. Let's find it.
I'm glad you're here.
