Ok, so I liked their latest album as much as anybody else — but what is it that causes U2’s fans to indulge in such theological embellishment? — Consider America magazine’s Tom Beaudoin. After a break, the band was interviewed by a Good Morning America personality. Steve Hackett - Wild Orchids (SPV) It's fashionable to dismiss 'prog rock' as outdated, pretentious and 'arty', it's a bit like saying that having a Simpsons poster on your wall is cooler than an original painting. 网易云音乐是一款专注于发现与分享的音乐产品，依托专业音乐人、dj、好友推荐及社交功能，为用户打造全新的音乐生活。. Sacred Harp Singing In Western Massachusetts (WMSHC) Sacred Harp, or more correctly shape-note singing, is a truly glorious sound, totally unlike anything else in music. Apr 29, · This is the bi-weekly visible open thread (there are also hidden open threads twice a week you can reach through the Open Thread tab on the top of the page).
Because you being uniquely you will allow the people you interact with to feel comfortable being uniquely them — perhaps for the first time in their lives. There is no more authentic way to connect and no greater gift to give.
While a few were fun to write, many of them were not easy for me to publish. That will take about 3 minutes. You can come back for the rest later. This is me being me. All I ask is that you be yourself in return. Please share one story or little-known fact about yourself in the comments. We were treated by two very gracious and really entertaining LYL and Connect with Anyone members, Brandon and Virginia, who were visiting from Toronto. I thought the meal might last an hour or two, but we actually totally hit it off and had a blast.
Crazy how many things we all had in common. So they paint a false picture and do a huge disservice to everyone who looks up to them and to the world as a whole. By putting up this front, they create these expectations that are impossible to meet. To share the warts alongside the glory.
Some of the good, the bad, the funny and the ugly things about my life and past in a effort to bring us all closer together. Because when you show who you really are to someone else, it often encourages them to be themselves as well. And sadly, in a world of false images and representations, many people have never gotten the chance to be uniquely who they actually are. There is no greater gift you can give.
And as it turns out, there is no other way to genuinely connect with those around you. Authenticity is at the heart of all things successful.
The heart of an inspiring speech. The core of a business out to change the world. And given that nearly 4, of you have joined our Start A Blog Challenge , I could not think of any better timing.
Then no one except maybe those closest to us gets to see what happens when we get home some nights and lay awake terrified. In fact, it makes people resent you. So this is how simple it is — be who you are. Not who you want to be or who you think you should be. Just tell and share your stories and watch what happens. Here goes… Special thanks to my good friends Corbett Barr and Lissa Rankin who have recently inspired a new level of authenticity into the way I live and show up in the world and a big thanks to all the friends and mentors online and off who constantly hold me to that higher standard — you know who you are.
I just always try to do things right up until the last minute, and I notoriously underestimate how long everything will take. Especially my wife Chelsea, who deals with it way more often than she should have to. Growing up with a sister four years my senior will do that to you. I never played sports as a kid and always rebelled against them. As a result, I could not throw a football or kick a soccer ball to save my life. A golf ball is the only one I can manage — if you can even count that.
Especially on grass and beaches. They might be my single favorite physical activity.

I was a rebellious disaster of a child — and even saw a child psychologist a few times. His name was Barum and he tried to get me to throw a Nerf basketball with him just like you see in the movies bad idea — read about me and ball sports.
Maybe it was that two-week Outward Bound backpacking adventure I was sent on. I love pastel-colored clothing. My favorite pants are white, pink and mint julep green. They encourage everyone to wear pink.
My Pink Panthers made for the perfect pant — I know they look white but they are very light pink micro-corduroys. Their stuff is so fun — been buying from Andy and his team since they were selling out of their apartment. Yes, I am wearing more pink than my wife… 7. I am a terrible speller. Thank God for spell check and Cherilyn, my editor! I wanted to keep it simple. At times this leads to some uncomfortable, intense and heated conversations.
I can be really stubborn. Goes with the point above. This can be frustrating for those close to me. I managed to marry up in a such a huge way. She makes everything better. Her calm, balance and chill approach to life is the best medicine in the world.
Our wedding was easily the best day of my life. I read and learn a ton about food, nutrition, health and overall well-being, and most days I eat a super healthy plant-based vegan diet.
Seriously — I think I have an issue with it. Chelsea and I also happen to have food-focused lives. I wrote personal development book reviews for four years straight, while it grew by exactly zero percent. The only real people paying attention were Chelsea and my mom and dad. It was very frustrating, but it allowed me to find my voice. And for Live Your Legend to become what it is today. I fail at things all the time.
It's. Only. A. Rock. Band.
I was fortunate to be born into a incredibly supportive and close family. My parents are some of my best friends and mentors in the world. My father was also quite successful in his business endeavors. For years I tried to follow in his footsteps, which was brutally hard on me. It used to hurt me. I knew nobody in the space when I started. Sometimes I feel like email runs my life.
For the life of me, I cannot seem to get ahead of my email box. Not to mention LYL email that has well over — but thankfully my team does an awesome job of handling the LYL part.
Sometimes my inspiring friends make me feel small. There is no more powerful life hack in the history of the world than hanging around the people doing the things and living the lives you dream of living. And while for the most part they inspire possibility, sometimes being around them and hearing all their big progress and projects makes me feel small. Like I should be doing more.
Continuing to focus on my internal yardstick has helped a lot. I constantly over prepare. I rehearsed my TEDx talk for 12 hours straight the day before not to mention the days prior. Most articles I write take over seven hours, despite trying to to keep them to a couple hours every single week.
And sometimes it gets me hurt. This is something my parents and Chelsea are always a little concerned about. Or better put — I really only seem to be able to operate on extremes. I only have two levels: Absolutely everything I have, or nothing at all. Run an ultra marathon or stick to walking. Eat fried foods and sweets or do nothing but veggies.
Instead of doing a casual CrossFit class, I push myself to win. Last year that resulted in an impinged shoulder and partially torn hamstring.
It took me nine months to recover. I read and learn a ton about health, performance and optimal living.
I screw up all the time. It was like we were in a movie and it was terrifying. It took like 12 hours. Longest 12 hours ever… All the charges were later dropped since we were indeed on private property, well outside of city limits and not actually causing any trouble, but it was a total mess. Thanks for reminding me in the comments below Paul. I love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
