“Mediocrity is easy. The good things take time. The great need commitment.” Bob Seger
Inspired by Bob Seger's "Beautiful Loser," Mark and Collin use the theme of the song to explore issues that prevent us from achieving greatness.
The song is about a dichotomous character who wants everything in the world but is not willing to go for it. He sets his bar so low that he never achieves anything of greatness. Now, we all know that greatness can be in the eye of the beholder.

We had a great time with Bruce Pulver, a well-known TEDx speaker and Author of Above the Chatter, Our Words Matter: Powerful Words That Changed My World. Bruce is passionate about the power of our words and the influence they have on attitude, mindset and the results we achieve in life. In his book, Above the Chatter, Our Words Matter, Powerful Words That Changed My Life Forever, Bruce shares the personal experiences and powerful examples of how to take control over the words we use.
His book contains a collection of 400 consecutive days of writings that focused on a single word each day of self-encouragement and inspiration which he wrote to get through a difficult period in his life. Words are important. They shape what we do. A very important word is “start.” The premise of our discussion of the word “start” is a quote from Arthur Ashe: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
Bruce prepared an acrostic using START:
Say “what can I do”
Take an action
Ask how later, just do now
Reach beyond your belief
Then take another step. And another step. And another step
