A few years ago, my brother confided in me that he wanted to move to a new area and explore the possibilities there.
We were a family raised by cautious parents, so it was tough at times to express ourselves.
But, I encouraged my brother to speak out for himself. The fear of failure was there, but he had a chance to succeed as well. Just as we had predicted, dad was against the move. He felt my brother knew nothing about Colorado, and that was such a risky move. But, I informed him it was better to try and fail than live with regret. My brother flew to Colorado the next month and started working as a waiter in a local hotel. This was his job for some time until he discovered what he wanted to do in the area. He lived in an apartment with a guy he knew from college and his cousin. All of them loved working out and had a gym membership in the area. Whenever my brother had free time, he would work out and started posting his routines online. He had a good physique, and this spoke to many people who started following his journey. Then one guy asked him to be his trainer. My brother would train him in the morning then head to work in the afternoon. Next, it was two guys, and that’s how his personal fitness venture began. The last time I visited him in Denver, he was so happy, and we got to sample some pot brownies in the city. Weed is legal in Colorado, and he showed me some of the CBD stores he liked.
