Abraham Lincoln thinks you're awesome!

You want an awesome life? Great!

You want someone else to tell you how to create one? Oooh…that sucks. To quote Pink Floyd: I’ve got some bad news for you, Sunshine. It doesn’t work that way.

That probably comes as a bit of a shock. You’ve probably heard a hundred (probably at least five this week alone) coaches, experts, and gurus tell you that they know “the way” for you to be successful. Well, this isn’t one of those sites.

Because here’s the thing: there is no one way to awesome. There is only your way. Just like there is no one set of tools that will help you to succeed. There is only the set of tools that works for you.

Just so there’s no confusion, what we’re saying is that anyone who tells you that they know, unequivocally, how you can have an awesome life is full of shit.

Human beings, in case you haven’t noticed, are individuals, with unique skills, abilities, and capacities for genius. In other words, what works for you may not work for someone else, and what works for someone else almost certainly won’t work for you. In still other words, there is no shortcut, no magic pill, no silver bullet, no secret formula to awesome. Your path to awesome will be as unique and individual as your fingerprint.

Captain Kirk thinks you're pretty awesome, too!So if we’re not here to tell you how to find awesome, what’s the point?

Why the website and podcast and videos? What is the Powder Keg of Awesome, anyway?

Along the way, we noticed that even though there isn’t “the way”, there is “a way”, which is different for everyone yet includes some common elements, things like: showing up, being real, filtering out noise, building a bullshit meter, to name a few. Without having these common tools, it’s much harder to set yourself apart from all the drivel and noise.

The Powder Keg of Awesome is about an attitude, not a methodology, an approach to life, not a system to follow, focused on the how not the how-to. Join Jerry Kennedy and Jackie Dotson on the Powder Keg of Awesome, every Wednesday at 10 am Pacific.
