People are usually defeated in their minds before they’re ever defeated in their lives. That’s right. Someone can have a functioning brain and body and still end up on the bottom rung of the ladder of life because that’s where they settle. Nobody forced them to remain there. It’s their choice.

The “metal gods” never compromised, and that’s why Black Sabbath still demands respect after 40+ years of thunder. Metal itself never settled during the challenging decade of the 90s when the flannel-wearing grunge bands were whining their way through ten years of musical depression. In fact, it was during the melodramatic reign of grunge that the Texas metal-makers Pantera hammered a steel spike through the heart of the music industry. You can’t do that if your tendency is to settle.

My mission is to help equip people to maximize their resources for a purpose greater than themselves. That's what my own mentors and teachers have done for me, and I'm paying it forward. Life can be merciless, and the world can be a messed up place, so what's needed is a stronger people that can both endure and overcome in life. My motto is, "In whatever you do, don't suck! Metal up!"
