Over the past few weeks I have had more and more people ask me what the numbers "15.23.14.9.20." are. What do they stand for? What do they mean?

I can tell you right now what they stand for, but I would be doing you and the numbers a great injustice.

Imagine this if you will, imagine that you are asked to describe the way the sunrise looks and feels to someone who has never seen it. Imagine telling someone the way the first rain of spring smells and feels on your cheeks to someone who has only known the desert. Imagine explaining the feeling of holding the hand of someone you love as you watch the sunset on a wonderful day to someone who has never loved.

While you can say the words of what all those things are, and you can use descriptions of what it is, there is no way they can truly feel it and you could never give it the justice it deserves. That does not mean I won't tell you what 15.23.14.9.20. means to me, it just means you won't feel it.

Honor
Courage
Devotion
Commitment
Belonging
Family
Honesty
Pride
Friendship
Training
Knowledge
Power
Acheivement
Determination
I CAN

Well said, Re. The numbers reach across every facet of life. Even the athletes that commit to the 6 week sessions are not told what the numbers mean. You find out by stepping out. And then you learn to own it. Simple as that. That big blister you have right now will pass, but those numbers tattooed on your heart will never leave. You're special, Re. Keep being you. :)
