Switchfoot – This is your life

Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead
Yesterday is a promise that you’ve broken
Don’t close your eyes, don’t close your eyes
This is your life and today is all you’ve got now
Yeah, and today is all you’ll ever have
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes

This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be?
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

Yesterday is a kid in the corner
Yesterday is dead and over

This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be?
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes

This is your life are you who you want to be?
This is your life are you who you want to be?

This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

And you had everything to lose

Parrish Taylor

Parrish Taylor has played several roles for me for the past 15 years. I’m grateful for our friendship.

Parrish is a trainer. It’s who he is. He’s trained in corporations and on the field. We met when he was still in the advertising and development industry. We built one of the first Learning Management Systems (LMS) back in 2002-ish. It was a fun experience.

Fast forward to 2015, Parrish is on his own and now working with athletes, corporations and now police officers. He’s training them on how to manage the “chatter” or “voice in your head” that leads you to a victory or defeat in your life. If you can imagine, between the different examples, there are similarities because stress is still a factor and how you deal with it is key.

He introduced me to a new, a better packaged, version of maturity. Because “Maturity Matters”. Helping him with his website and marketing, sitting in on his lectures, (I even acted as camera man on occasion). Learning about the 6 cylinders and how important it is to balance them was near the beginning of my journey.

Studying Daniel Goleman‘s material was just the start. Emotional Intelligence is everywhere. Parrish’s goal is to make sure people are as successful as possible in their individual lives as they navigate the variables. The idea is to “seek peace“.

All have the right to thrive.

I’ve recently found a video and site called “The Thrive Movement“.

This movie is the latest big eye-opener after of “The Secret“, and “What the bleep do we know?

If you’ve ever wondered how the have’s and the have not’s could possibly exist. This 2 hour movie is worth your time. I’ve already shown it to my 6 year old and even he could tell how it shouldn’t be this way. “Papa this is bad!”
