Invitation To Greatness!
Yesterday was Veterans Day. I had the honor of spending it in the most marvelous way. FIU my alma mater was having the unveiling of the Felsberg Veterans Plaza.
2nd Lt Paul Michael Felsberg was killed in action during Iraqi Freedom in Ramadi on October 13th, 2004. The plaza and memorial was named after him.
Here's what the memorial doesn't show. Mike was my teammate, a leader, and most of all my friend. He'd come over ever Christmas Eve and spend it with my family. Pictured are a few of my teammates that he touched by the way he lived his life and how he treated others.
Mike had a simple statement he lived by "Make it a great one."
You don't erect statues for the average.
You don't make an example for others to follow for someone that's OK.
You don't spend time thinking of those that just participated.
I believe we are all called to greatness.
I believe you do yourself and the world a massive disservice when you don't show up as the best version of yourself.
Let me invite you to be like Mike.
Live with excellence and create a purposeful and powerful legacy that creates impact.
Make it a great one!
