It has been a dream that I have been passionate about pursuing for years.Throughout this process I realized that there was a very specific way that guys like Chad, myself and readers like YOU take toward pursuing a dream or reaching a goal—and I have always been curious as to why we take this approach. Maybe you had a mentor growing up, certain family-values or grew up in a specific environment.You don’t have to run into someone, or be introduced to someone at a party or a gathering like you once did. If you bring me to a bar that makes a mean old fashion, I’ll consider you a friend. A couple weeks ago I asked Mike to write a blog post about one of his new ventures. I have written for many sites, publications and am always striving to absorb as much information about health, fitness, nutrition and overall well-being.You can simply have similar interests or be in the same industry and you’ll inevitably come into contact at some point over the interwebz. My newest venture is starting a cap and apparel line called Boston Scally Company.Boston is known for being a blue-collar city where hard work is a given, the bond of brotherhood is unbreakable and the pursuit, no matter what it’s toward, is always relentless.There is a certain vibe in Boston that starts with its’ people, their sarcasm, their underlying rugged persona…and the one-of-a-kind culture they all embrace. In the 1920s leading into the 1930s—times were tough in America.
So I will ask you to think about this question as you read the remainder of this post…Where does your inspiration stem from?
I’ve realized that they set bigger goals and take action on said goals while unhappy people are content to merely dream.
I’ve also realized that it’s important that you’re real with yourself, who you are, your strengths and weaknesses, and that you follow your It’s kinda odd, today, how we meet people. He brought a different spin to his writing than most. And on one of my many trips to New York where we met up for a drink, he introduced me to a lovely bar, hidden underneath a hotel, that made a very delightful old fashion. And so, I wanted him to tell us how he set out to chase his dreams, tackle a massive goal, and bring a vision and an idea to fruition. Chad contacted me and asked if I would write a blog post for the site as we have often shared ideas and supported each other over the past couples of years with our respective fitness websites.
The city also has some excellent GLBT-friendly accommodations, the most distinguished being the luxurious Inn at Parkside.
The longer I live, and the more people I meet, I realize that successful and happy people work harder than unhappy people.
Many communities consisted of second generation to those that immigrated from all over the world to find a better life for their families, provide for their children…to scrap for an opportunity at the ‘American Dream.’You’d often see working class men leading up until this time and throughout, wearing ‘flat caps,’ or as we refer to them in Boston—‘scally caps.’ The design of this cap was most likely for functional purposes such as blocking out sun or providing more shade, but quickly redefined itself.
