"I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." -The Little Engine That Could

“Don’t exist. Live.”

on January 1, 2013

step journey

Don’t exist. 
Live.
Get out, explore.
Thrive.
Challenge authority. Challenge yourself.
Evolve.
Change forever.

Become who you say you always will. Keep moving. Don’t stop. Start the revolution. Become a freedom fighter. Become a superhero. Just because everyone doesn’t know your name doesn’t mean you dont matter.

Are you happy? Have you ever been happy? What have you done today to matter? Did you exist or did you live? How did you thrive?

Become a chameleon-fit in anywhere. Be a rockstar-stand out everywhere. Do nothing, do everything. Forget everything, remember everyone. Care, don’t just pretend to. Listen to everyone. Love everyone and nothing at the same time. Its impossible to be everything,but you can’t stop trying to do it all.

All I know is that I have no idea where I am right now. I feel like I am in training for something, making progress with every step I take. I fear standing still. It is my greatest weakness.

I talk big, but often don’t follow through. That’s my biggest problem. I don’t even know what to think right now. It’s about time I start to take a jump. Fuck starting to take. Just jump-over everything. Leap.

It’s time to be aggressive. You’ve started to speak your mind, now keep going with it, but not with the intention of sparking controversy or picking a germane fight. Get your gloves on, it’s time for rebirth. There IS no room for the nice guys in the history books.

THIS IS THE START OF A REVOLUTION. THE REVOLUTION IS YOUR LIFE. THE GOAL IS IMMORTALITY. LET’S LIVE, BABY. LET’S FEEL ALIVE AT ALL TIMES. TAKE NO PRISONERS. HOLD NO SOUL UNACCOUNTABLE, ESPECIALLY NOT YOUR OWN. IF SOMETHING DOESN’T HAPPEN, IT’S YOUR FAULT.

Make this moment your reckoning. Your head has been held under water for too long and now it is time to rise up and take your first true breath.

Do everything with exact calculation, nothing without meaning. Do not make careful your words, but make no excuses for what you say. Fuck em’ all. Set a goal for everyday and never be tired.”

— Brian Krans

 

It’s been a while since you’ve seen a post from us. There’s no excuse that I’m comfortable making for that. Days and weeks have gone by and it’s time to fix that. It’s a new year, and I thought we should start with a bang. An in-your-face, no-apologies kind of post.

This is blunt. It has a swear word. (Yeah, I went there.) It makes no apology for what is says. All of this is meant to remind you of one important thing: Your time is now.

Now is not the time for laziness. It’s not the time to sit back and take it. It’s not the time for pretending you’re okay with shortcomings and upsets.

YOU CONTROL YOUR DESTINY. Get out there, and start living your life for no one else but you.

It’s a new year. Make this one count more than any other to date.

Leave your mark. No regrets. Just bold, fierce, blazing determination and optimism.
