It’s all in your head…

What this world wants is for you to fail…

We are so fearful of what “might” happen, that we block out something so innocent, but the world has made it a fearful, damning, awful type things. We focus, we have a narrow focus rather on the miniscule things that have us losing focus on the whole, the gigantic, wonderful life.

Shaking off the mind-control which is happening. You feel a rage building inside of you, your eyes darken, your mouth opens and a thunderous roar escapes your throat while fire spits from your stomach. You are awake, you thrash your head around as you start to flap your wings. You can see clearly, as the clouds start to fall, you see no enemy, but you feel its presence as you walk out of the fire. Your scales glisten emerald green in the fire’s light. You breathe in deep, and you roar again, so loudly you break the treetops in front of you and the echo can be heard for miles.

That’s what happens when you snap awake and see that this lie the world has been feeding you, becomes rotten to the senses. You can see clearer, these “dangerous” might-be’s are now just laughable, you feel fuller, your heart becomes softer as your mind becomes sharper. There is NO better feeling when you realize YOU control your destiny, your path, your goals… Not this world, this world wants failure, wants stress, wants separation, and desperation… count on nothing, take everything, believe in yourself!

You throw your tail around and stomp your feet in a defiant victory! You’ve defeated an unseen enemy, you roar in triumph, and as if to call the enemy to stand before you, but in typical coward fashion, they never show. You slowly scan the area around you as the fire’s rage behind you. You look back at what was holding you down, kept you blind, as it burns to ashes, and you are the only phoenix to rise from it. You unfold your wings, you motion them to launch from this oblivion, the stars are bright in the black sky, you launch, and the heat from what was fades away, as the coolness of your future flies around your face. You smile, knowing that you are in control, you are in fact ready to battle this world, and you are stronger than this world, now build upon it, and OWN YOUR LIFE!!

Thank you from RCEC.

2018 begins with this reflection, and perspective.

5 years ago Woodchuck aka Robert Kuck III and I created an event that is known as Shred The Ledge, and a group called RCEC. We went from 4 dudes at the 1st event we ever did called Concrete Crawl to our latest creation called Ledgestock last year. We have created an RC community based on family, positivity, fellowship, brotherhood, and more.

Our family has grown in such a way that Rob and I feel proud of what we’ve created, and as our family pushes out into other rc communities promoting that same mentality Rob and I started, makes both of us catch feelings. With the addition of Tim Landers to the RCEC Staff we are excited to see what 2018 brings with him now standing with us at the comps.

We have gone all over the US spreading the RCEC Mentality, and it has caught on with many other people. We’ve wheeled with some amazing people, and have even become close friends with them. With All the short comings of social media, it was instrumental in our growth, and meeting some AMAZING people. Social Media is how Rob and I met, and it’s never been right ever since. Haha

We want to say thank you to the RCEC family, the supporters, the sponsors, and everyone else who has played a part of what we have become. The haters keep fueling our fight, while the creators keep giving us life. We have top tier style competitions with the BEST drivers in the world competing in them.

2018, in our 5th year, we will continue to push for more community growth, more purposed fun driven events, traveling, and supporting more of the entire rc community!

Thanks to you all, and have an awesome 2018, see you on the trails!!

Wake up 2018!!

Wake up! Happy New Year YOTD

As the crisp air comes calling, you breathe a hot breath and open your eyes. You lift your head up off the ground and survey the land laid out before you. You brush off that – what was – thought, as you can not change the past. You see the morning sun crest the mountains as you lift your wings and stand into a well earned stretch. The trees around you shake as you flap your wings half heartedly, as if to shake the dust off.

Today is your day, don’t let circumstance be your story. It is a new year, it’s a new day, a new hour, a new minute, take what time you can, and own it! We are all afforded the same day, what we do in that day varies on effort, on desire, with PURPOSE!

As you walk the ground shakes, the trees tremble as you pass by, and the world becomes yours. You can and will take today and OWN IT, why? Because you are DRIVEN WITH A PURPOSE!!! LIVE in that FORCE!!

As you lift your eye towards the sky to launch into your day, you dig your toes into the ground, you pull your wings back, and smirk with knowing full well you control your destiny… Your legs bend, your spine stiffens and as you push off the ground, you scream a war cry that echoes on your soul and in the forest around you… OWN IT!!!
