You have to cherish things in a different way when you know the clock is ticking, you are under pressure! - Chadwick Boseman
This past weekend, we lost another great. In fact, to me, he was the greatest super hero that ever lived. Chadwick Boseman, also known as the Black Panther, succumbed to a four year battle with colon cancer at the very young age of 43.
This was devastating news to the community. Most were shocked and surprised to learn of his passing. After four years of being completely silent of his illness, Chadwick Boseman was gone.
Today, I dedicate this reflection to the CEO side of Chadwick Boseman and celebrate all that he was, all that he meant and all he strived to achieve. For sure, anyone who battles cancer in silence while they take on the greatest roles of their lifetime deserves a celebration.
Chadwick Boseman made his discomfort his million dollar proposition. Instead of complaining about how he felt, the long hours he had to work, the pain he had to endure, the fight he had to face every single day, he just worked through it. But what did this really mean?
His story has convicted me! No longer will I reference my days as hard and long. I've been given a path, a mission and a vision. They are mine to own. They are mine to complete. They are mine to endure. The are mine to see to the finish line.
What about you? What have you complained about lately as it relates to your mission, your vision and your dream? How can you use Chadwick Boseman as an example of why you must continue to push and press on? Where do you need to sure up in order to succeed?
Chadwick Boseman can rest in peace knowing he achieved his mission of becoming a legend and his vision of building a legacy. His commitment, focus, resilience, agility and stamina all paid off. Rest well King T'Challa!
