I have a friend named Laz, and he is a nifty fellow. He is a rancher, a martial artist of the highest caliber, and a leader of men in an elite team.
Laz, in all of his qualifications, is one of the most humble men I have ever met in my life. You would never know that he has a crew of some of the toughest men on earth under him.
Well, Laz confronted me the other day with the stoutest of personality.
“Thiel, why do you only have one video up on your You Tube?”
I explained that they can be found on my blog, but he was not satisfied with my answers, so…
I gave in and told him the truth. I took down my videos due to being relentlessly being made fun of at work for them. I was not being laughed with, I was being laughed at. It hurting my feelings despite my bravado.
This made Laz visibly angry. He told me that he would make a YouTube so I would not be the only one in our vocation putting material out and He encouraged me to put my videos back up. He says that I make people insecure with my confidence and that I why they are trying to tear me down for having a creative outlet.
Thanks, Laz. You are the man, and I consider you a friend. If you need anything, let me know. I needed that.
At the moment, the only way to see my material is through Brother’s Campfire links. I plan on protecting myself that way for a while.
That way, haters have to look for links to hate on. My line of work does not seem very keen on creativity. Perhaps one day I can be as bold as you Laz!
When Laz launches his channel, which will be about ranching, I will be the first to support it. He is the real deal.
