Next Sunday, November 13, my life will change immeasurably.
And so will yours; a statement I can make with complete and utter audacious honesty.
6 days from now, at precisely 12:00am (EST), my short film “Life By Numbers” will be released to the world.
Over the course of this week, you will see video and written tributes from people all over the world who have pre-screened my short epic.
All 100% authentic and very real.
You will see them say things like “… that was 14 minutes of the deepest self-reflection I have ever experienced”.
“Life By Numbers is provoking, haunting, thoughtful, insightful and absolutely mind-blowing”
“It’s brilliant, powerful, beautiful and has been the most life-changing moment of my life”
But the honest, candid truth is that this production has changed MY life more than I believe it could ever alter the course of anyone else’s.
I was ostensibly successful.
Founder and CEO of a maverick corporation in the Fitness & Sport Training world.
Worldwide guest lecturer and published author.
Trainer to Olympic Gold Medallists, professional athletes and National Team competitors.
But a deep longing to do, see and become more bit at me in a constant, relentless manner; baiting me into challenge.
So, I free-fell. Into a place I had never before gone….
To develop something of iconic consequence.
To create a gift for the world that would transcend time and survive long passed me.
To establish a literal cult-classic that would be received, remembered and revered for us now; and generations to follow.
At 3am one bitterly cold fall morning in September 2010, I ventured into the heart of Chicago; a city whose blockbuster grandness echos awe as the sun crests over Lake Michigan.
Intent on capturing a city as it awoke.
Raw, human emotion as it glided absently through the rote patterns we’ve all learned to accept as ‘life’.
The common stroke of comformity and anti-authentic connection.
What was my calling came to climax as a 14 minute film and christened “Life By Numbers”.
The type of soul-searching you have been looking for.
The wake-up call you’ve been longing for.
In truth, I simple wanted to document what I believe; in an artful way….
The fact it will become a generational and worldwide classic is nothing more than the inevitable fallout that happens when you pursue with convicted purpose.
Sunday November 13. 12:00am (EST).
And yes, with Audacity, I will ask you to be a Nexus.
Watch the film.
Become stunnded, amazed, scared and inspired.
And then, help us spread the message that our planet most certainly needs.
Be Audacious; Change the World.
