Break Diving is the lost art of finding and creating opportunity. Instead of waiting for opportunities to float to the surface, break divers dive in to the cold and icy water of resistance and make their own breaks.
I want everyone on this planet to see their dreams come true… or die trying. There is nothing (and I mean nothing) worse than the moment when someone has lost hope. Without hope, we have nothing. Without faith, we have nothing. The moment we give up on a dream because we think it’s hopeless… is the moment we die. Even if our hearts keep beating, and even if we keep on living, the truth is… we have already died.
Well, I don’t want dreams to die. I don’t want my dreams to die. And I don’t want YOUR dreams to die. And so, this not-for-profit company was created: Break Diving, Inc. It’s not something I dreamt up recently. No, actually, the technical birth of break diving as a philosophy was in the one thousand nine hundred and ninety ninth year of our Lord. Okay, that’s a mouthful to read, haha. It was born in 1999!
To learn more about the birth of Break Diving, be sure to read the upcoming post entitled, “The Break Diver’s Creed”. But for now, I just want to share that Break Diving today is no longer just a personal philosophy that I have lived by and continue to live by–now it is a worldwide phenomenon with the mission of inspiring the world to hope and success… one individual at a time!
On our website, our mission statement reads as follows:
Break Diving™ is a Delaware corporation, headquartered in New York, organized for charitable purposes under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code to lead and inspire people worldwide at any stage of life to dream bigger, act more boldly, and discover, embrace, and successfully pursue their life purpose… and then share that enthusiasm to excel with others. Instead of waiting for opportunities to float to the surface, Break Divers dive right in to the cold and icy shark-infested waters of resistance and find and make their own breaks.
Break Diving–through the creation of a worldwide community of winners that uses the latest in modern psychology and other techniques to effectuate positive change in people’s lives–helps individuals find career and life success against all odds through the development of great ambition; positive mental attitude and greater physical health; increase opportunities; enhanced business skills; stronger friendships, families, and communities; deeper world and cultural understanding; and less sadness, loneliness, depression, and self-doubt.
