Business (Branding)The Competitive Spirit

Thank You Las Vegas

I can’t believe I’m saying this so soon…

The very first time I saw Las Vegas...

The very first time I saw Las Vegas…

Three years ago, I fell in love with you.

I remember it so vividly.

I was on a flight from Charlotte, NC.

I had just finished school and had some free time before graduation.

I had heard so much about you.

I saw you in the movies.

I had to find out for myself.

What were you really like?

Were the stories true?

And then I saw you through the clouds.

You were beautiful.

You were surrounded by darkness.

You lit up the desert landscape.

It was love at first sight.

I couldn’t wait to land.

That first weekend was incredible.

We had an amazing time.

But it was too short.

I wanted more. I knew I had to have you.

We spent some time together that summer, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Everyone close to me knew I was obsessed with you.

It ate away at me that I couldn’t have you.

A part of me gave up hope and believed I would never have you.

I had to move on.

Both Denver and Austin were willing to give me a chance.

I chose Austin.  She was a fun, exciting city.

At first, she made me forget about you.

There was never a dull moment with her.

She was beautiful and multi-dimensional.

Everything seemed great. But then I remembered…

And I realized… she wasn’t you.

I visited you one weekend in 2014 and we picked up right where we left off.

But once again, it was short lived.

I obsessed over you again. But then I came back to reality.

I had responsibilities in Austin.

2015 came and I told myself this was the year we finally make it.

I visited you Superbowl weekend to tell you that we would be together very soon.

I drove all the way from New York to be with you and on April 22, 2015, we finally made it official.

For two years, I had regrets and secretly constantly questioned, “what if”.

I was always so close but I could never truly make you mine.

Sometimes I completely forgot about you out of necessity…

I have had the time of my life with you this past year.

All of my fantasies were fulfilled… and then some.

I always fantasized what it would be like if we were together.

Reality proved to be far more rewarding.

I have done everything I ever wanted to do with you. I did it all. I experienced it all.

The nightclubs… the pool parties… the restaurants… women from all over the world…

I lived the life with you.

And now our time has come to an end.

I know one year seems short. I had always pictured us being together forever.

I guess you can say I’ve grown up a lot since 2013.

Also let’s be honest, I squeezed a few years of living within that one year.

I will never forget our time together.

And I will treasure the memories for the rest of my life.

Most importantly, I have no regrets. I’m no longer tormented by what if.

Everything happens for a reason.

Sure I got to live it up in Sin City but the real prize was growth.

I learned a lot from my time with you and ultimately, it has made me a better (sharper) person.

So what’s next?

I want the simple life.

In order to win, you must have a winning mental culture.

Energy and momentum will enable me to DOMINATE.

My first love is calling me and the stars are aligning.

I must go to her. She was always the one.

My heart will always belong to her.

My mind has become clear and I have regained the most important part of my childhood…

I’ve started dreaming again.

My dreams are BIG and she will help me turn these dreams in to reality.
