“The Power of 20”
As you read this, I would like you to pay close attention to your current location, or your “20.” We all KNOW where we have been and where we currently are, but we tend NOT to focus on WHAT we are doing in the present. Primarily, this is because we focus MORE on where we are going, we focus on our future transitions and not enough on the current moment. I ask you to take the next 20 or more seconds to stay with me here in the present and reflect on my journey, and the power of 20.
I am about to encounter a tremendous milestone, and a very difficult transition. In August, I began my final year of service, as I will retire from the Air Force next August with 20 “good years” of Service. 20 years, half my lifetime has been spent serving this amazing country. 20 Memorial Days, 20 Veteran Days, 20 Armed Forces Days and something I will not miss, 20 annual PT tests and 20 PHA Exams. I signed my initial enlistment contract on Aug. 20 over 20 years ago and left for Basic Training days later. It has been 20 years since I endured my first deployment to Iraq during the initial push, but it would not be my last, as I have had the privilege to support both OEF and OIF on numerous occasions. In 2020, we began our withdrawal from Afghanistan and in 2021, 20 years after we first entered Afghanistan, I was part of the team who monitored the final pieces of the withdrawal, as I tried to recount my numerous experiences supporting operations in and out of country. 20 years of service that could fill a lifetime!
The power of 20 can be intoxicating, can represent fear, courage, challenge, success, but most of all potential! The potential to overcome, the potential to live in the now and strive for success, and the potential to ensure the next 20 years of service is just as memorable (in its own way of course).
Are you all still with me….I hope so, because I need your help and support during this exciting transition, and I am calling on ALL who represent what “the Power of 20” can do! In 2020, I began writing a book titled “Foresight is 20/20.” It represents our ability to succeed and power through obstacles and barriers through our many transitions, to achieve our true potential! The book was published in 2021 during my last deployment with little buzz, so the book has lied dormant since its release. As I enter my final year of service towards my next unforgettable transition, I am asking for your support in achieving my goal and letting the contents of the book achieve its true potential. As I enter my 20th year towards retirement, my goal is to change the lives of 20,000 people by selling 20,000 copies of my book. As many of us know, the power of 20 is immeasurable, and I challenge you all to help me prove it! Below is the link to help me attain this amazing feat and I appreciate any support you can provide. In addition, please share this link with anyone you think may be interested, as I would like to provide this opportunity to anyone looking to support my transition into the next version of 20!
Let’s show what the power of 20 can do! Thank you all for taking the time to read this, share this, and help me attain my goal of 20,000 copies sold, as it will truly help drive the next 20! God Bless and Aim High!
