What’s Your Story?

“This is my world, this is my arena

The TV told me something different, I didn’t believe it

I stand here in front of you today all because of an idea

I could be who I wanted if I could see my potential

And I know that one day I’mma be him

Put the Gloves on, sparring with my ego

Everyone’s greatest obstacles I beat ’em…

…I will not be a statistic

Just let me be…

…Take that system, what did you expect?…

…Put those hours in and look what you get

Nothing you can hold, but everything that it is”

-Macklemore

You see, for me, this journey all started in February of 2012. I had spent the past 4 years stuck in a rut and was beginning to give up on having hopes and aspirations. Something finally hit me one night after accompanying my brother and sister-in-law at the gym, “I don’t have to continue down this road. I can make my own success.” I’ve shared my story from that moment on; for the past months, I’ve been using this site to share MY story to inspire OTHERS. Now it’s your turn! It’s time to let OTHERS inspire OTHERS and for YOU to inspire ME (more than you already do).

Here’s what I need you to do. Send me a message using the comments below or an email through the Ask Me Anything page. In the content be sure to answer these questions. I will be selecting stories to highlight in a continuing series of blogs starring the community (sorry in advance if I can’t get to yours). The world is a better place when we lift each other up; let’s hear those stories!
