Recently a friend told me about his fear of writing. He explained to me that he considers himself an ever evolving individual -- always learning, adapting, and evolving. Writing to him, is a snapshot of his 'self'. He feels that writing, in a sense, holds his soul captive and unable to learn, adapt, or evolve. I agree with my friend. As a result, I face a paralyzing fear that immobilizes my flow of ideas and impedes my writing. Luckily, I live to challenge myself and thrive from obliterating my fears. Welcome to my blog.
A roach! STOMP! STOMP! SQUISH!
Bugs seem simple and unaesthetic to many people. But let's take a look at the life of a one of my favorite bugs, Amy the ant.
Amy the ant is born to a healthy colony. She finds herself an average healthy ant amongst many others in her generation, and her head spins as she tries to make sense of this new world that has so recently become her reality. But no time! "Amy, stop standing around! Take care and nurse the younger ants! You know what to do," says an elder nurse ant. Amy, confused, nurses and cares for the younger ants along with many other young ants in her generation. It is during her first job as a nursing ant that Amy realizes some ants are born with wings while others like herself are not. These fertile winged ants, or alates, if female are destined to mate and possibly become the queen ant of their very own colony!
"Amy, stop standing around," exclaimed an elder ant, "there's many ants nursing. Come help me clean up the colony." Amy realizes there are more jobs to do, and so she looks over to a younger ant and says, "Oi! Quit standing around! Nurse and take care of the younger ants!" Then she hurries over to help her fellow ant clean up the colony. It is in her travels throughout the colony that she matures and becomes truly dedicated towards helping the colony. She seeks to do more for the colony, for her family.
"Amy, stop standing around! Food supplies are low we are heading out to forage the nearby areas, " says an elder ant. Amy puts down her cleaning tools, and as she prepares to forage on behalf of the colony for the first time, she spots a young nursing ant and says, "Oi! There's plenty of ants nursing. Come clean up the colony!"
The alpha man dares analyze himself; he identifies his strengths, weaknesses, and driving force. With an understanding of his driving force, he is able to set life goals and stay highly motivated throughout. With an understanding of his strengths, he is able to leverage his skills so that he may accomplish his goals. Last but not least, with an understanding of his weaknesses, the true alpha aggressively works towards improving himself and turns his weaknesses into newfound skills. Naturally, because of his self-awareness, the alpha man knows what he wants and why. As a result of his self-enlightenment, the alpha man is confident, relentless, and driven making him a great leader.
The alpha man continuously and fervently forges his body and his mind to embody his utmost self as he journeys through life.
A group of guys are arming an alpha revolution. They define alpha as 'The highly-evolved, best version of one's self.' An alpha revolution is a coup led by our alpha self against the 'beta' inside us. This group of guys is in the "Relentless pursuit of helping Men become the Alpha version of themselves."
Check out their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheAlphaRevolution/info), like, share, show your support, and show some love for a great group of guys out to inspire and help others become the best they can be.
