Over the past few days I’ve been thinking of what I could resolve to do in this new year that would have serious meaning for myself, others, and the world. I’ve been doing this while listening to music in my awesome room in the awesome building I’m living/working in that’s in the greatest city on earth, and one song I’ve been listening to called “Jet Plane” really hit a chord with me. The whole song is largely resonant with what I want to do this year, and that goal is: Share my successes.
“I woke up early in the morning feeling very strong, very happy that the crew was sipping Perignon, the private jet is waiting ready for your carry-on, we’re going away but not for very long.”
I’m thankful for the fact that I’ve had in my life already, and met people likeAdam and Josh who inspire me almost everyday to do better and more. I’m already definitively achieving my dreams, all I have to do now is follow through.
That said, I want my friends to be able to achieve theirs, and for me to be able to share my successes with them as they achieve their dreams and are able to share their successes with me. To that end, I want to get closer to whoever feels like being close to me, and I want to mentor others so they too can achieve what they’re capable of and aspire to do.
I’ve done at least a bit of mentoring in the past year, and I’m proud to see friends like Jacob, Grant, Justice, Bree, Austin, Heather, Ryan, Erik, Koda,Lee, Christopher, Lucy and others doing better than ever while putting in the hard work to achieve their dreams. That’s without even mentioning my awesome family, Dominic, who’s cooking up a storm, Daniel, who’s on his way to winning the World Series of Poker, Christopher Pepe, who’s on his way to becoming an awesome activist lawyer, and Jonathan Pepe, who just scored a sick new job. Congrats guys, keep improving, all of you, even if you haven’t been tagged.
That’s not enough though, I want to see all of my friends doing better, and significantly better at that. So if you’ve felt lonely, if you’ve felt like you need some direction, and/or if there’s anything at all I can do for you to help, feel free to reach out to me. I’m here for you for practically whatever you may end up needing from me this year. Right now I am committing myself to formally and thoroughly mentoring at least three people throughout this year, possibly more if I can work out the time. If you want to reach out to me and become a closer friend, and/or get mentored, let me know and I will dedicate at least one hour each week to talking with you and seeing how we can work together towards a more prosperous year and future for you.
Happy New Year everyone. May 2016 be the best year for you yet.
