In 2012 the world is full of crime, hate, drugs, depression and fear. Or is it? We all have different perspectives on how we view the world. I see a world of connection, financial freedom, and people living their dreams. This is the world I live in. The true heroes of today are people that are challenging the status quo simply because they have a desire to change lives. The heroes of the past are not that different from the heroes of today, they all wanted to represent an idea. Heroes never think about themselves, they are willing to risk their very being to change the lives of the people around them. I have started my own journey to be a hero, and that journey begins with one question “Why not me”? Every since I was little I have dreamed of saving the world, I want the entire world to be different simply because I was born. I plan to this by starting a movement called “Why not me?” Why can I not be the first black billionaire dot com CEO? Why can I not provide seven generations of financial freedom for my family? Why can I not be the guy that gives the world hope for tomorrow? I think of these questions every day of my life, because they push me into action. These questions stop me from dreaming and force me to making them happen. They hold me accountable for what I truly want.
As I stated before a true hero is someone that challenges the status quo, someone that has a desire to change the world. These are people like Steve Jobs, Michael Jackson, and Martin Luther King the world will never be the same simply because these people were born. I want to represent an idea. The idea that if you put your mind to something you can accomplish anything, all you need is a crazy work ethic, faith and perseverance. As a hero you have to be able to bare the stresses of the world. As a hero I commit my very being to this and nothing will stop me. I wake up every morning and see the world I want to see, because this is the world I am creating every day. My name is Tyrre Burks and my mission is to create a world of connection, financial freedom, and people living their dreams. I plan to work extremely hard, have faith and give people hope to make this happen. Oh, and one more question “Why not you?”
