Foremost, this post was inspired by a conversation I had with my friend and mentor Coach Be coupled with watching the “Marley documentary”. Coach Be and I were talking about his passion for helping people eat better (these days getting people to do what is in their best long term interest is a hard sell.) A few hours later I happened upon Marley, an amazing and inspirational documentary about the most famous human being… ever. I asked myself, “What would Marley do?
Bob Marley lived for what he loved. He lived and died for the opportunity to spread his message of love and freedom to the masses through his music. As most people know, Bob was Rastafarian and as part of his “way of life/religion” he adhered to a Pesca-Vegetarian diet (fish is the only animal source of protein.) He believed that the body is God’s temple and should be kept as strong and healthy as possible.
He also held to the firm belief that if he could not dedicate himself totally to creating change for the better in his own way then life was not worth living at all. Anything that hindered, delayed or distracted his mission was simply moved aside. He lived simply and purposefully and will forever be known as one of the most influential musicians in history.
