    Great post, Ted. It's refreshing to see young men like yourself striving to become leaders and staying committed to achieving goals.

    You're already doing great things, and will continue doing great things!

    I haven't gotten there yet, but I am dead set on becoming an electrical lineman for either Northwestern Energy or another big energy corporation. I really didn't decide on it, it just popped into my head one afternoon while I was messing around on my computer and seemed like it was my calling. The more I researched it, the more I like it. Being a lineman is one of those careers that has excellent pay and benefits, does not take 4 years and a bachelor's to get into, and is recession proof work. Electricity and petroleum are the two top sources of energy in this world and without them our way of life would end almost instantly and we'd go back to being cave dwellers basically. Only real downside to being a lineman would be the risk side of it, but none of the local lineman around where I live have ever been injured on the job, you just gotta have some common sense and a brain in your skull.
