Day (451) – The Voice

The Better Man Project ™

“Life will life you” it said to me

But why did you have to turn everything off?

Why did you make it so quiet?

“You needed to learn. It all happens for a reason. Never forget that.

Whatever I choose to do, there is a reason for it…one that always helps you grow.”

You only give me as much as I can handle, I know that, I just sometimes wish you didn’t trust me so much.

It hasn’t been easy.

“But remember, the pressure cracks didn’t mean you broke, it means you survived and now have an amazing story to tell.”

Will you help me write these stories?

“Of course. But you already know how.”

If you haven’t had the chance, read my book! http://amzn.to/18lRIci

Day (461) – You vs.

The Better Man Project ™

0fc2bb12d32b11e2b3d922000a9f309f_7

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

It’s you vs. you.

Don’t be mistaken.

It’s not you vs. anyone else.

Anything else.

Something else.

It may appear to be that way.

But it really isn’t.

It’s you vs. you.

The fight is within.

The exterior is just the playing field.

You make yourself the best you can.

Take it to the limits.

Break barriers.

Jump over obstacles.

Defy your previous handicaps.

It’s you vs. you.

It’s all in your head.

Now go win.

– E.

Happy Birthday Mr JAMES GADSON!!!

JAMGADSON-2-12-1His sound is a dignified staple in a plethora of gems that span over 5 decades to this very day, resonating rhythm at its apex. He has been a huge influence in my musical DNA and is one of the main reasons of me making a brave attempt at playing drums as a kid. His signature sound has been the blueprint for Funk, Blues, Soul, Rock, Disco, Hip Hop, and the list goes on. His groove continues to be a driving force and the standard in sound. Happy Birthday Mr James Gadson!!! Enjoy to the max sir!!!!!
