I woke up sluggish. My shoulders were hunched over. I felt like vomiting. My mind was moving at the pace of a slug.

I took a slow shower …the one where you stand under the water for an extended period of time, knowing that any longer and your skin will become all wrinkled up.

I clenched my fist and said in my mind, “Yes!” The day before I woke up and turned on this Anthony Robbins video, “Now I am the Voice.”

I yelled and screamed and jumped and got my body moving, and began the day with energy and intensity.

NOW I AM THE VOICE
NOW I AM THE VOICE
NOW I AM THE VOICE
NOW I AM THE VOICE
NOW I AM THE VOICE
I WILL LEAD NOT FOLLOW
I WILL BELIEVE, NOT DOUBT.
I WILL CREATE, NOT DESTROY
I AM A FORCE FOR GOOD
I AM A LEADER
DEFY THE ODDS
SET A NEW STANDARD
STEP UP
STEP UP
STEP UP
NOW I AM THE VOICE
NOW I AM THE VOICE
I WILL LEAD NOT FOLLOW
I WILL BELIEVE, NOT DOUBT.
I WILL CREATE, NOT DESTROY
I AM A FORCE FOR GOOD
I AM A LEADER
DEFY THE ODDS
SET A NEW STANDARD
STEP UP!
STEP UP!
STEP UP!


I finished up showering and a thought entered my mind: Why I don’t take the ferry to work today? With this seemingly insignificant thought. I had an extra skip in my step. A new sense of purpose on my quest.

I went to the local 7-Eleven, picked up a delicious coffee and begin walking to the ferry — not knowing anything of the schedule or the exact location.

I had to make a run for it, but I made the 7:45AM boat…

I took a shot of myself on the boat…

Reveled in the awesomness of the moment and recorded this youtube video…

I sat facing the bow, the wind blowing on my body, and I FELT LIKE A KING. I felt free. My heart felt open. And, I was able to see each person entering the boat and leaving with so much joy.

I arrived in DUMBO, sat in the park and got to work early. #livelikeaking
