The YouTube video, which was uploaded by Michael Lazarow on Monday, June 4, 2012, has a title of “A New Beginning – Is Fear Holding You Back?” and he did not say a word, but rather used a tablet slideshow allowing the viewers to read the message.
“Yesterday, Kass (his wife) and I signed a deal to sell Buddy Media to SalesForce.com. Right after, I sat down and recorded a personal video. It’s raw and emotional and captured the feelings I had after signing.” Lazarow wrote on the description of the video.
“I thought about not sharing it as it is so personal. But that wouldn’t be very social-media like of me. I figure I’ve been sharing what I’ve been eating, doing, seeing and more for the better part of 5 years. So why stop now?” Lazarow added.
Lazarow noted on the first part of his message that the video was inspired by American blogger Ben Breedlove and is dedicated to Cycle for Survival founder Jennifer Goodman Linn. Both personalities, who both admitted publicly about their illnesses, and notably inspired a lot of people before they died in 2011.
Later, he admitted that he had a heart condition called Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) all his life and the first time he cheated death was when he was 18 months old. The next time was when he 19 years old, where a heart valve replacement saved his life.
On the latter part, Lazarow mentioned a quote “The enemy is fear. We think it is hate, but, it is fear” and added, “f you live without fear, anything is possible. Is fear holding you back?” He also placed a link to the press release at BuddyMedia.com about his business deal with SalesForce.com.
