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!
