NWR Army B&D BBQ

B&D BBQ

The first Bold And Determined Barbecue was a killer event.

Too often when you’re a cold-hard killer, you get a sense that you are a lone wolf in a sea of sheep.

You against a job.

You against College.

You against the World.

But then you associate with other people who think like you and realize that you aren’t alone.

You may be a powerful man alone, but to take on the world you need an army.

Alexander The Great and Darius The Great both had powerful armies in the Battle Of Guagamela.

Ancient sources say that Darius’ Persian Infantry numbered 1 million men while the Macedonians had a few hundred thousand.

Alexander’s troops were battle hardened, mentally tough and knew they were best army on earth and destroyed the Persians.

The NWR Army harkens to Alexander’s Army but I think a more fitting description would be Achilles’ Myrmidon’s.

Eyes of fire and each soldier is as good as five ordinary of the ordinary rank-and-file.

That’s what the NWR Army is. Everyone who showed up had a fire in their eyes and an aura of greatness.

I was amazed to be surrounded by an MMA fighter, Artists, Musicians, an Army Officer, Business Owners, Real Estate investors, and a Poker (poke-her?) Player.

I’ve been to plenty business meetups and conferences going back to when I was 15 years old listening to someone speak at the Urban League.

None of them come close to this. It was mesmerizing.

Nick Kelly and Mike Cernovich are awesome people to meet and talk to but I was most impressed by the company they were surrounded with.

Many of the attendees were successful people and all had the fire in their eyes for something greater.

It was tough for me to find the cash to go but it was worth every penny. You can’t put a price on finding like minded people, in fact in Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” he says this:

The list of the chief sources from which POWER, may be attained is, as you have seen, headed by INFINITE INTELLIGENCE. When two or more people coordinate in a spirit of HARMONY, and work toward a definite objective, they place themselves in position, through that alliance, to absorb power directly from the great universal storehouse of Infinite Intelligence. This is the greatest of all sources of POWER. It is the source to which the genius turns. It is the source to which every great leader turns, (whether he may be conscious of the fact or not).

To be truly great, you must surrounded by the truly great. Just as iron sharpens iron. Like minds sharpen like minds.

Fight the good fight

Be loyal to your like minded friends.

And you will never ever be alone for as long as you live.

 

Yours In Blood,

    Marcus, my bank account went to 0 just to attend. But… I got to meet the Shogun himself, meet other Ronin, and get inspired and fired up to move forward this 2017 as a result. So I definitely feel you on surrounding yourself by people who achieved or on their way to greatness. This to me is priceless.

    That Sunday morning was a caffeinated pleasure. Lots of high-powered conversation. Especially for 5am. Thanks again for sharing your Red Monkey with me.
