—-THE NIGHT EVERYTHING CHANGED——
This picture was taken four years ago.
We were celebrating our 13th anniversary in the beautiful Dominican Republic.
We had a romantic dinner by the beach.
From the outside we looked very happy…
but the reality was we were HAPPILY DISSATISFIED with our lives.
We had no reason to be.
My business had taken off after a couple of slow years during the recession.
We had a beautiful family.
We went to church every week.
We were the model successful couple.
Everyone who saw us thought we had it ALL.
So what was missing?
PURPOSE.
We lived in a bubble.
The only people we cared about was our immediate family.
We had a close circle of friends but we didn’t have any REAL IMPACT on the world.
I asked my wife…
What is our LEGACY?
How are people going to remember us?
What do you want our kids to say about us when we are gone?
For the first time in a long time we had a REAL conversation about what we wanted.
She told me what she wanted and I told her what I wanted.
I wrote down her list.
She wrote down my list.
In the end we had two choices:
Ignore it…call it a crazy dream
and justify why our life together was good enough…
Or
GET UNCOMFORTABLE and FIND OUR PURPOSE.
Little did I know that one year later we would be putting together our First Next Level Event trying to figure shit out.
Now four years later we have created a MOVEMENT that will impact thousands of lives.
I can’t say it’s been easy.
Some days I wished I had never had that conversation.
Some days I felt like I was going to fuck everything up.
Some days I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing…
but the memory of that night kept me moving forward.
I knew the ONLY WAY my woman was going to know the TRUE me was if I lived my PURPOSE and my MISSION.
In two weeks I will hold my 18th event in 24 months.
Shit is getting REAL and the beautiful thing is…
We are just getting started.
