The Young King Experience
My experience with the Young Kings has shown me there is more to our world and how we interface with it than meets the eye. My time surrounded by the mentors and leadership within Young Kings has drastically impacted my outlook on life. Being emersed in the Young Kings experience has opened my eyes to the truth that real morality consists not in following the beaten track, but in finding the true path for ourselves and following it. Prior to the Young Kings I believed success was acquiring a host of material items, and having the funds to boot. I quickly learned success is what impact you can leave on this planet within your community and friends’ group, the YK experience made me deeply understand the butterfly effect.
The butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state. I now understand even the slightest swing of the pendulum can have powerful impact downstream in people’s lives, every drop in the bucket matters.
My short term and long-term goals have become one and the same, to continue to grow, to continue to reach and impact lives in my community, and to put myself in a position of financial freedom to continue to accomplish the first two goals.
I believe the Young Kings experience has been a powerful vehicle for developing my mind and human potential.
