The other day, I was listening to Hypnotize by Notorious BIG and started to get nostalgic. Remembering the ‘good old days’ when life didn’t have so many responsibilities, bills and worries.
I then started thinking…
How did Biggie and Pac get so good despite being in their early 20’s? How did they stand out from the crowd? What was their path to mastery?
This post is an attempt at answering those questions.
The first time I saw Laird Hamilton. I knew this guy was a badass. He was jacked, tall, had blond hair, and was a big wave surfer. Hamilton had calm confidence about him that came through even while watching him on TV. For some reason I was really impressed by the guy.
He was like a mutant king from another planet. The things he was doing were so beyond anything I could ever dream of doing. He was achieving the impossible and with ease. His laser like focus, calm presence under chaos, and ability to slow down time were like nothing I had ever seen. It was like he was able to see the codes of the Matrix and knew what was coming before anyone else.
In other words, he had abilities that I would never have.
