Yes, today. It’s not just another ordinary day, it’s today. People have this way of putting off today for tomorrow, or some “special” day. Only, “today” is a special day. Every day you wake up is a special day. And no better time to make good use of that time and be AMAZING!
This is pretty much how I live my life these days. Ever since I started my business just about five years ago, I wake up everyday with the intention of helping as many people as I can, through whichever means I can. My posts, my services, my blog, all of it serves to help others. It gives me a purpose, it is my driving factor in life (aside from my two sons). It truly is what makes me, me these days. I can’t imagine living my life any other way now. And I have to many things I still want to do, that I know I have only literally scratched the surface of what I want to do and where I want to go. That’s what makes every day amazing for me. Following my passion and my purpose.
Sometimes people spend so much of their time thinking about yesterday, last month, last year or even twenty years ago, let that shit go! You have today. So, once again, make TODAY amazing. However you can, with whatever you have, with whatever time you have. Whatever you do, do not live in the past (we all have those people in our lives, the ones who love talking about High School). Unfortunately, I think those people think that was the best time of their lives, and are basically walking through life now. What they don’t see is, everyday you wake up, is a new start to change your life, and make it amazing!
We never know when we are making a memory until the moment is over. This is why I always advise my clients to always expect something wonderful is going to happen (and yes, I know many of you don’t agree with that philosophy. Only my blog post, my philosophy :-). Because you never know when you are making a wonderful memory. How many people have a funny memory with their kids, something that happened out of the blue and you still talk about it. I know me and my kids have quite a few.
True story, about eight years ago or so, I met Brad Pritt in person (and yes, he is just as handsome, if not more, in person, and just as nice). I was working at a flight department and he was taking flying lessons. So imagine walking into work, your standing with a couple of your co-workers and the door opens from the hangar and in walks Brad Pitt! That really happened! (I’m writing a blog on that one, stay tuned!)
I received an e-mail yesterday bringing me some very good news. Something that I was hoping was going to happen (business wise). My first reaction was, OMG, I can’t believe it! My second reaction was, Mmmmm, I don’t know if I can do that. Then I proceeded to come up with about five reasons why I couldn’t/shouldn’t do it. Why? Here was a thing I really wanted to do, yet scared the hell out of me. Totally out of my comfort zone. (Details to be announced at a later time). I had to literally sit and think about it, and tell myself I could do it. And to cement the deal, I told a couple of people about it, making myself accountable to actually doing it! Is is easy coming out of your comfort zone? Absolutely not! Only, that really is WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS. Don’t be afraid of coming out of your comfort zone and doing amazing things!
You are free as a bird to do what you want in this life, so make it amazing!
I leave you with this. “Pursue Greatness Daily”. You deserve it. You are worthy of it. You should be living the life of your dreams, or as close as you can get. Do not just ‘settle’ for whatever comes your way, or how things turned out (hey, we all have a story or two or ten about shit that happened to us and that’s why we are where we are). Do not accept that, if that is you! As the saying goes, you are never too old to learn a new trick. People get so caught up in what “happened” to them, that they can’t move forward. Personally, I’ve been to hell and back more times than I can count. I just use that as fuel to get me to where I want to me!
There is only person responsible for making your life amazing, and that is you! Food for thought!
