Tips and Advice


This is the start to a list of things to live by and to remember on a daily basis, I just added a few but will add more later. I’ll keep adding on to this, but feel free to comment and I’ll add it on!

  1. First impressions do matter
  2. Fear is your enemy, and your friend
  3. Laughter needs no translation
  4. Never say no to a gift
  5. Never trust any one with two first names (should have trusted that one recently)
  6. “Don’t ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something. You have a dream, you have to protect it. People can’t do something themselves so they want to tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it, period.”

    Inspiring words Ric. I like the Alton Locke inspiration and you have inspired me to get out of my damn hotel bed, put down those free cookies in the lobby, and hit a treadmill. Not only that, but I am inspired by you expressing your vulnerabilities. One thing I like to live by:
    Learn to be humble. There is always someone smarter or stronger than you. Good luck buddy.

    Ric,

    I’m not only proud of you- although feels weird to be proud of a peer, especially when we all have our own struggles of self improvement- but I’m very happy for you. It take a lot of strength and courage to rethink one’s life, and oneself, and to take the steps to become the best version of yourself. But, strength and courage is something you’ve always had, and I think not matter what happens, you will find success in this. Basically, because you’ve set yourself up to succeed- you’ve thought of all the little things, and will have many successes along the way.
    My only advice for you in knowing you for so long, and this is something you touched on in your posts– is your stubborness. I know you will push through a lot to succeed and that has made you the person you are, and a successful one because of that trait. But, don’t let it hurt you. Listen to your body. Know that rest is an important part of the process too. Challenge yourself, don’t make excuses- but set guidelines for yourself for when you need to adjust/rest. Of course everyone around you, doctors, friends, family, can help you set those guidelines.

    I wish you all the best of luck! I know you can do it- all of it. And it’s good to have the people around you as inspiration, but most importantly, do it for you.
