Below is Dylan’s commitment statement he has set for himself.
“I’m committed to being a winner. Success is a foreign language that failure is teaching me. I attack every single day with the intensity and fearlessness of a bumblebee. I will not let my morning sickness start the snowball effect that is my day. Most of all I am beloved, forgiven, unshaken believer. I am very aware of how unfair of the opportunity it is that I have been given. Relentless at sharing the love of my savior. I understand that the focus of my life is not about being the best in the world but being the best, I can possibly be. I personally believe that I was put on this earth to have a positive impact with every person that I am blessed to have an encounter with. Whether that be with a wave, smile, laughter, with whatever it maybe I want to walk away from someone knowing the coinciding joy that we share. I have separated happiness with circumstances and in doing so I have created a shortcut in life. I will be a pioneer for all the lost and hungry in the world. Knowing that I do not have the answers to questions that have not been asked I will further my education from daily reading and writing. I will lead those around me with my concise and productive communication. I have been given the guide for dummies on how to live and will forever do my duty of serving those around me, ahead of me, and those whose path will not reach mine. The landscape of my life is an ever-evolving process that is my character, my wit, and my personality. I am joy.”
