To live a meaningful life of honour and self creation is by necessity, non-conformist. One must hold his or her ideals above the will and wishes of other people. We live in world where people live small; their dreams are nonexistent and they hate you for having the audacity to dream. They will disguise their contempt for your bravery with lies disguised as wisdom, criticism clothed in so-called “guidance” and a whole host of tactics designed to poison your will and drag you back into their graves.
The artist and the warrior by virtue of being being more awake, must bear the proud responsibility of personal liberty. You have a duty to cultivate your being; this, of course, is not easy. But I believe that it MUST be done if you mean to pursue personal excellence.
Assuredly, It is more convenient to go back to sleep; but if you strive for accordance with Truth, then the slumber of weakness will do you no good. It took me a long time to learn this lesson. Today I strive to live authentically and I hope I can help encourage you to do so as well. So I challenge you to better yourself by adopting a warrior-mind state and being the most authentic you. What say you, can you be your own hero?
Yours in Defiance,
