Kevin E. Eastman was in the Air Force as a sergeant. He learned things such as how to best effectively get his message heard, and his supervisor really helped him open up perspectives on his life and mentality. He used to be the type of person who blamed everyone else for all the problems and misfortunes. But it was pointed out that if you look at yourself, you can see how you are the creator of your own world. Even something as simple as fear. Fear exists, but it's because we create fear in thinking about something that may or may not even happen. With that type of awareness, we can overcome so much more.
