I came across this note for for becoming Brilliant at Basic Things….it caught my interest and figured I’d share with all my friends! Just a couple of notes to help you continue to have success in 2012!
To see the full list from Be Bold 101, by Nicholas Bate. Some stellar advice.
Well time to scratch off another goal off my lifetime list of goals. A couple of weekends ago I was able to enjoy a great time with my parents but more importantly with my Dad. I was able to take him to a professional boxing match, where Manny Pacquiao defeated Joshua Clottey here in Dallas, TX.
Ever since I could remember when I was young anytime that it would be a weekend and my dad would have over his friends to watch boxing matches, whether it’d be a big name fight for someone like Sugar Ray Leonard or even someone who was just up and coming. I recall boxing always being a sport that my dad and his friends would be so intrigued and just followed very closely. So much that even as elementary age I recall my dad and his best friend getting together and his friend having bought some boxing gloves. At first I was like oh this will be cool, I’ll get to see my dad do what he loves doing and just kinda mock fight his best friends just how the guys on TV doing it. Well much to my surprise the 2 sets of gloves were not for them at all, they were actually for me and his friend’s son and they wanted us to go after it. At first I was like any kid not wanting to do what his dad was telling him to do, of course it was fun to watch boxing on tv on friday and saturday nights but now that they wanted me to throw some jabs that’s a whole different story. But oh well, I figured it’s not like this guy is going to kick my ass in front of my Dad. So we tied on our gloves and we were off, did I mention that my dad’s friends’ son was older than me and was already in junior high. Yeah so we messed around and he threw some punches and I threw some punches but well neither one of us were fighters or knew what we were doing so that ended very quickly with no one getting hurt or should I rephrase that by saying, “With me not getting hurt”.
So boxing was something that was a shared interest between my father and I, we watched all of the big fights. We would follow different fighters and see who they would be fighting next and their stats. There was always my favorite as a child Pipino Cuevas, something about him being a slugger type of fighter that I enjoyed not to mention that he had a funny first name. Then there was Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Tommie Hearns, I remember watching this fight over and over and over since my dad and his friend had recorded it when it was first played on PPV. But it was and I think still is a great boxing fight for everyone to watch. Then there was Marvin Hagler, Hector “Macho” Camacho, Evander Holyfield, Oscar De La Hoya, Mike Tyson, which I had an opportunity to meet in person in Phoenix but that’s another story. eventually in the later years came the rising of one of the best boxers I’ve seen and hope to one day meet, Julio Cesar Chavez. So boxing was definitely something that was admired and sought after by my father. We would watch all of the Rocky movies together and even to this day anytime that Rocky is shown on TV it reminds me of listening to, Eye of the Tiger and getting up and start boxing with my dad as he would put his hands up and we’d pretend like he was my trainer and I would be throwing punches and moving around.
So for me to be able to personally take him to a major boxing event was such a proud moment in my life. I had always set certain goals for myself and that was definitely one of them. To see him walk into the very impressive Dallas Cowboys Stadium and just see the lights, the ring, the cameras. Hear Michael Buffer say those magic words that are now trademarked by him and has earned him an excess of over 400 million in licensing alone, “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble”. It was all just very exciting and fun to watch my dad experience that. But then to hear as Manny Pacquiao came out to the ring to that famous song, Eye of the Tiger was just such an amazing experience. I doubt that my dad knew that it meant so much to me, to share that experience with him. But I sure am glad that I did and I hope that everyone gets to fulfill all of their craziest goals in life. I have learned from surrounding myself with successful people, that life is very short and we can’t freeze it or slow it down or even stop it at times when we wish we could. One of the strongest influences I have had in my life is Marc Accetta, when I first started working with Marc I thought we would have a traditional working relationship. That was far from being true, I have learned to enjoy life and not take it for granted mainly from Marc, together we have done many things that never in my life I could’ve imagined of ever doing. For that main reason I am a strong believer in creating memories with loved ones that just make all the struggles and sacrifices and all of the endless amounts of hours put behind work, worthwhile. I hope that you are able to experience the joys that there are in life, for as small or as big as they might be.
This year personal success coach and mentor , Marc Accetta will be hosting a Podcast show called, The Power of One. Marc came up with the concept for the show a few months ago when he came across a song of the same name, by Israel Houghton, at our local church led by Mike and Kathy Hayes, Covenant Church. “I have studied human nature and the science of success for over twenty years and realize that most of the greatest innovations we have ever enjoyed came from the imagination of one person”, states Marc. While it ultimately takes teamwork to make the dream truly work, most great teams are lead by a dynamic individual who has a vision.
Our show will highlight amazing leaders from virtually every walk of life that have changed the world in which they lived by their contributions. While the people featured will all have in common the fact that they are ultra high achievers, they will also amaze you with the fact that they have come from such diverse backgrounds. Then again, while their differences will be vast, the similarities that created their successes and greatness will be nearly identical.
The formula for success is really the same no matter what you are attempting to do. As the series unfolds, you will definitely find this to be true. The power of what one idea can do is amazing. The power of what one dream can do is amazing. The power of what one person can do is amazing. We cannot wait to get started bringing these amazing stories to all of you. Some of the people will be very famous and others will not, but they will all be inspiring.
Marc says, “Years ago I needed to be inspired, I still need it. Much of my inspiration, then and now, comes from true stories of average people who had a dream, and who had the guts to make those dreams come true. I will share the stories that have inspired me. I think it will surprise you that many of histories greatest heroes were at one time broke and unsure of themselves. Some of them were depressed and considered themselves failures. The point is that there are thousands of more stories out there and I would love to help inspire one or two of them.”
If you believe in your dreams and are brave enough to follow through on them, the possibilities are endless. Tune into our show and share it with all of your friends. 2010 is the beginning of a new decade; a decade that will bring many quantum leaps in our society. Someone will be responsible for those leaps. Join our show and either hear about them or become inspired to create one of them. In 2010 come to understand the true power of one!
