My friends, today is a special day. Why you ask? Because, today is my birthday. So I’m creating a post that is all about Me.
Wait! Don’t click off the page just yet. The Me I intend to talk about, is not the Me you’re thinking of. The Me I’d like to discuss today, is the Me in ‘Me Inc.’, a powerful book I read recently.
Have you ever admired those people who seem to “have it all”? The ones you see conversing confidently at business meetings or powerfully at social gatherings.
You know in your gut, they are not smarter than you. They are definitely not more educated than you. And better looking? Ha! No way, not even close! So what is it?
Imagine for a second, this dad screaming at his son at the top of his lungs. He’s yelling at him because his son wants to do his own thing. Because the son wants to choose his own music.
The poor kid gets berated for doing what he loves, versus doing what his dad thinks he should be doing. The dad likely wishes his son would just do what everyone else was doing. Doing what he likes. If only the boy would submit to his way of thinking, to his way of living.
I was dropping my kids off at school and one of the parents and I started chatting about money and investing.

You know the scenario, the one where that friend of yours gets started on a pursuit with massive zeal. But then you learn that just a few months into their endeavor, they lose all their steam, and give up their dream. The scenario where everything seemed to be going well for them, like their success was just around the corner, but then, they gave up too soon.
There was once a great champion of a wrestler who would stand on the top of the ropes and say, “Do you smellllllllllllllll what’ the ROCK is cooking?!!”
After saying this, the crowd would go wild. They would go bananas, they’d go crazy!
But the ROCK is no more, and this isn’t wrestling. Now, there is a great champion of motivation who says, “Do you smellllllllllllll what The STRIVE is cooking?!!”
It was just over a year ago, when this site was first willed into the world. What started out as a self-improvement site, quickly morphed into the virtual nudge you’ve come to know.
There were many struggles over the past year, even a brief identity crisis, but much was learned along the way. Certainly, the year was not all sunshine and rainbows, but, all in all, it was a success.
I have an admission to make. Before I started college, I had read only one of these from beginning to end. If you guessed book, you’d be right.
