People that know me know that I am a HUGE fan of Bret Michaels.  This morning I was watching an interesting video on what he described as his “defining moment.”  CLICK HERE TO SEE STORY.

Life is a learning process.  We can only learn by taking risks and making mistakes.  For quite some time I stayed in a job that was making me miserable.  Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE what I do…I love to win…but I was in a situation where people who THOUGHT they knew what they were doing…truly didn’t.  I then did something I will never do again.  I kept my mouth shut.  I figured it wasn’t worth the effort.  It has become my defining moment.

If you believe in it…do it.  If you think someone is not right…be respectful…but tell them WHY they are wrong.  Life is short.  Don’t play it “safe.”  “Safe” only means you are NOT moving forward.  You are a ship that will eventually be sunk.  If life knocks ya down, pick yourself up, and come back swinging twice as hard.  Just don’t forget who sucker punched you.  Your vindication will be YOUR success!
