People That Inspire Me!

 The Men of POPS Ride: Shannon & Shane, Jerry Stutzman and of course Kyle "Spot"Worley!

Why Do I Succeed?
I succeed because I am willing to do the things you are not.
I will fight against the odds. I will sacrifice.
I am not shackled by fear, insecurity, or doubt.
I feel these emotions, drink them in and swallow them away to the place where my light overshadows them.
I am motivated by accomplishment, not pride.
Pride consumes the weak; it kills there heart from within.
If I fall, I will get up.
If I am beaten, I will return.
I will never stop getting better. I will never give up...ever.
That is why I succeed.
-------Mick Beaman

My good friend, Mick Beaman, is a very inspiring man. Diagnosed in his 30's with Parkinson's Disease, and now 44, there is not a day go by that I talk to him that he doesn't lift me up. He is a very talented musician, photographer. He is dedicated to his family, and he is a great advocate for Parkinson's Disease.
I am grateful to have him for my friend and hope that many get to meet him as well. Thanks Mick for the influence you are in my life!


  1. My friend Carl, if you only knew how many you inspire. Thank you!
