One of the things I’m SO grateful for in my life is being surrounded by a group of peers who help to lift me up. If I had to name ALL the people who have helped me along my path get to where I am, the list would be as long as the ending credits to a movie.
There are some people who are my age, my generation, who make a difference in my life. They are my peer group and I love ’em like crazy! In case you are wondering who these super rad peers are, they are Marie Forleo, Brian Johnson, Kris Carr, Gabby Bernstein, Danielle LaPorte, Maya Watson, Ryland Engelhart and Nick Ortner. There are DOZENS more folks I could name, but I’m naming these people because they are my age and I feel like we are a part of a “pledge class” that has found one another to help usher in a new generation of transformational voices.
And what I love about each of these people is that we all talk. We communicate. We help each other. We talk about our problems and our issues. We talk about things that we have going on and brainstorm better ways to do things. And most of all – we SUPPORT each other – because after all, we all have the same mission. And if we can’t get along – then quite frankly – I think the world would be screwed (lol).
I’ve only recently met this really amazing pledge class of peers and yet I feel like I’ve known them for lifetimes. And what’s so amazing is that I am UTTERLY inspired by each of them. They, to me, represent not only new and fresh voices, but they have style, class and most importantly integrity. It is by me meeting this amazing group that I am inspired to raise my standards. To do more, to BE more and to BECOME more. They help push me to be a better person, a better boyfriend, a better son and a better mentor. It’s an age-old adage that we become the five people we spend the most amount of time with – and if I get to become like these people – then I can’t WAIT for that!!
They have shown me, by their demonstration, that it’s TOTALLY ok for me to be me. And the more I do that, the RADDER my life will become. And they’ve also shown me that life is all about service at the end of the day.
They really sum up one of my all-time favorite Beatles lyrics, “I get by with a little help from my friends.”
Guys, thank you so much for who you are and what you do and how you show up. It’s inspiring to me and I’m so HONORED to be able to call you each my friend!
