Well, Warrior fans– it’s been just about two years (tomorrow!) since I began these writings. I want to thank Warrior, his wisdom, humor, and all of YOU for following or being fans. I was thinking of a way to sum up these few years but couldn’t quite find a category that interested me. First, a list intrigued me as to why my longevity with him continues but think that’s been covered… The next idea was to ask you fans to express your memories or why he continues inspiring today but realized that’s tough getting others to share.
The last thing I thought of was to list why or how this whole “spirit relationship” came to be with him but yet again, I’ve mentioned numerous things in the past. The whole list is in the afterword of my book Spirit and Belief.
What I will share is some of the MOST important things he has taught me and what I have learned. Some have always been in my life but I just needed to get amped up into who I really am. Some surprised the crap out of me while others just made sense. So, guess it’s a list after all but here’s the MAIN EVENT:
~~~ Be Honest
~~~ Get inspired and be the Inspiration
~~~ Follow Your Own Intuition
~~~ Do The Work Everyday
~~~ Everyday is a Gift, use it wisely
~~~ Your Life Matters
~~~ It’s Not Who You Are, It’s What You Are
~~~” F__ _ _ What Others Think!”
~~~ Be Creative, Original, and Stand Out
~~~ “I AM Funny!” ( said by Warrior)
~~~ Your Spirit and Belief are the best messages you will know
~~~ “Slay All the Naysayers!”
I have mentioned many of these already and some overlap but just thought they looked great in a list. Realistically though, I could add a dozen more but those will suffice for now. Do you use or believe in any of these? Even if others have said these statements, I sure hope you can apply them in your life. Warrior was over the top but did always explain how he wanted to motivate and educate people in order to become disciplined. It isn’t always the physical but the mental as well– all the time.
Not much is new but once I started my spiritual journey, all of his mentality on that came back. The funny statement might be surprising to some but just read some other blog posts of mine or the book and you’ll get it! I knew some of that years ago but it’s a different perspective now. Check out the podcast he made back in 2007. It’s on the Ultimate Warrior YouTube channel. He mentions his humor A LOT!
I had no clue how much of an inspiration he would truly become and how his messages worked thru me to tell these stories. Whoever your inspiration is, keep it going so you can one day be that to someone else. Who knows what path your life will take?
I also want to thank Dana, her girls, and Steve for their willingness to honor Warrior’s legacy while sharing memories always with us. They know what it means to be the warrior you are meant to be with whatever life gives you. That message is for all of us and one we should never forget.
These past 4.5 years since Warrior’s passing are extremely surreal and hard to comprehend. I have constantly moved forward and still am humbled with my incredible journey. Also, this blog is very close to having 100 posts. I will continue writing as I hope you continue reading. Remember that list warriors and pick your favorites. I really can’t. If I had to, I’ll quote the last line from the intro on his Ultimate Collection DVD: “Slay all the Naysayers!”
~~~ Don’t forget to #alwaysbelieve ( that’s a given!)
~~~ Maybe I’ll get a REAL cupcake and celebrate this milestone in honor of Warrior and all of you!
