The Enemy is Fear, We Think it’s Hate, But, it’s Fear

Buddy Media CEO Michael Lazerow Makes Unforgettable Video Following Salesforce Acquisition (Huff Post)

This week, Buddy Media, a social enterprise software company, was acquired by cloud computing giant Salesforce.com for a staggering $689 million.

Shortly after he signed the deal, Buddy Media CEO Michael Lazerow made this inspiring YouTube video. Lazerow, who was born with a serious heart defect had a singular message to deliver: learn to live without fear.

Inspired by Ben Breedlove, a young man with hypertropic cardiomyopathy who shared his emotional but uplifting story in a wordless viral video, Lazerow uses an iPad to poignantly convey his powerful message.

When he was 18-months-old, Lazerow miraculously survived heart failure. Then at 19, he had to have an emergency heart valve replacement after his blood pressure fell to zero.

He explained in the video that the near-death experience changed his life entirely, helping him realize that he needed to start living fearlessly.

Lazerow, considered a thought leader on digital media, is a self-described “serial entrepreneur.” Having already started four successful companies, he was named Ernst and Young Entrepreneur Of The Year in the New York region for 2011.

“If you live without fear, anything is possible,” wrote Lazerow. “Is fear holding you back?”

The video is dedicated to Breedlove, who died shortly after publishing his video, as well as Jennifer Goodman Linn, the founder of Youfearless.com who died last year after a long battle with cancer.

The Way I See It:

If we trace any negative emotion, any failure and any set back it will always always lead us to something we fear. To be honest YES my fear is holding me back….but Recognizing the presence of fear allows me to make conscious decisions to change it. YES I take the decision to change my fear everyday. I win sometimes and I feel like a free woman…I am getting better and better with every win. They say it takes energy to resist fear BUT I say Resisting fear strengthens it.  It takes a decision to surrender, trust, set the intention and most importantly believing that nothing bad happens and we do have a choice …..I choose to be fearless discovering my limitless potential. CHOOSE TO BE FREE…

 suheir_hammad_poems_of_war_peace_women_power.html  (watch it on TED)

Suheir Hammad (born October 25, 1973) is a Palestinian-American poet, author and political activist. She was born in Amman, Jordan. Her parents were Palestinian refugees who immigrated along with their daughter to Brooklyn, New York City when she was five years old. Her parents later moved to Staten Island. (read more) .

In her poems and plays, Suheir Hammad blends the stories and sounds of her Palestinian-American heritage with the vibrant language of Brooklyn to create a passionately modern voice.(Biograhy)

The Way I See It:  Usually I don’t post two days in a row, but I had to share this with everyone! “Where do refugee heart go?”… I have nothing to say ……really!!  I listened to this like 10 times in a row and I still get goose bumps.

Woman, Poetry and Palestine in one powerful, inspirational video! For you my friend, for you Grace and for all of us……!

I have to finish with Suheir’s brilliant and priceless line “Do not fear what has blown up. If you must, fear the unexploded.”

The Paradox of Our Time: Beautiful Message By Dr. Moorehead Not George Carlin

George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, actor and writer/author who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. Dr. Moorehead is minister, author, and former pastor of Overlake Christian Church in Redmond, Washington. 

The following message said to have come from George Carlin on the occasion of his wife’s death. It has also circulated as having been written by a surviving student of the Columbine high school massacre in Colorado. however. It is minister, author, and former pastor of Overlake Christian Church in Redmond, Washington. In a response to an inquiry by TruthOrFiction.com, Dr. Moorehead said he wrote it in 1990. It was later published in 1995 in his book WORDS APTLY SPOKEN.


The Way I See It: It doesn’t really matter if George or Moorehead wrote these words. It’s still a great message telling us to cherish every single moment and person in our lives. Life was never about money, power, position or possession it was always about love, care, moments of joy, laughter, love and sharing. Life is all about living it ..learn…teach..connect….

*************

The  paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter  tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have  less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller  families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less  sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems,  more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink  too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too  fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little,  watch TV too much , and pray too seldom.

We have  multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love  too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve  learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not  life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble  crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not  inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better  things.

We’ve  cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not  our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish  less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to  hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate  less and less.

These  are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character,  steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes  but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick  trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight  bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a  time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.  A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can  choose either to share this insight, or to just hit  delete…

Remember;  spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be  around forever.

Remember,  say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little  person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember,  to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure  you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember,  to say, “I love you” to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all  mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside  of you.

Remember  to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be  there again.

Give  time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious  thoughts in your mind.

AND  ALWAYS REMEMBER:

Life is  not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take  our breath away.

The Inspirational Story of Tony Melendez

The Way I See It:

Every day we have a choice; either to make it a great day or a miserable one, either to be happy or to suffer, to live every minute of it to the full, or to waste it thinking about the past and worrying about the future. Nothing can really stop us of being the person we want. The secret is simple: It is a conscious choice to accept what it is NOW, be thankful for what you have NOW and open yourself to the infinite possibilities that they are NOW topping it with your heart desires and dreams (If you do not know them yet it’s OK. Just ask and you will be answered). TRUST yourself and just watch how everything will be spinning in your favor.

Tony, you made my belief even stronger in the power of our own choices and thoughts Thank you God for my hands, my little fingers, feet, eyes, voice and heart. These miracles I forget I have sometimes.

Thank you, Tony Melendez.

Love & Light
