Your daily dose of awesome. Watch for tomorrow’s email for even more fun stuff.
This is one of my favorite quotes. I heard it at exactly the right time in my life – which happened to be a few weeks ago when I was super overwhelmed.
I see it as a positive and an inspiration to work on me NOW rather than later. After all, what is accomplished by waiting?
“Don’t wait for things to get easier, simpler, better. Life will always be complicated.
Learn to be happy right now. Otherwise, you’ll run out of time.”
– from a movie called The Intouchables
Along the same lines, I love this message that I got from the Urban Monk earlier this year.
It’s a bit harsh but good message overall. When reading it, think of experiences as what YOU value.
- Time invested with the special people in your life.
- Time doing the things you love to do the most.
- Time becoming who you want to be, learning, stretching, growing.
- Time shared making the world a better place.
Cool? Now go ahead and read it and let me know your thoughts in the group.
What if our goal was to collect experiences on this planet, not things?
What if we are here to share wonderful stories and have great laughs?
I think it’s possible that we’re here to discover ourselves all over again and find the majestic beauty in being and not doing all of the time.
The way I see it, we can spend our lives hoarding a bunch of useless crap or traveling the world and hiking through the mountains.
The problem is most people have given up on fixing the world so they have resolve to live a life of mediocrity whether they know it or not.
Either you decide the direction of your life or your TV will do it for you.
Bonus Super fun life tip for the day. My favorite way to cheer up FAST.
If you have Amazon Prime, you can cancel your Pandora account. You’ll never need it again.
I recently found out about Amazon Music (both on my computer and the app on my phone), entered my Amazon logins (since I have Prime) and now I have unlimited commercial free music.
NOT ONLY THAT, but I can download any songs that I enjoy to my phone to listen to when I don’t want to stream online. SWEET.
What do I have on mine? A lot of Broadway show tunes. (They make me happy). Wicked, Hairspray, Hamilton, etc. 🙂 So anytime I feel like belting out some tunes to cheer myself up, guess what? I’ve got them.
One of the best ways that I get traffic is to get my competition to happily promote me. 🙂 It’s a science and an art, but it can be done. And when it works, it WORKS. Like seriously tons of traffic (and sales) if you connect with the people who are reaching your target audience / market.
Here’s a blog post from my friend, Milana, with more information about it.
22 Surprising Reasons Your Colleagues, Peers, and Even Competitors Will Promote You!
I’m sure most of us do this anyway, because we’re awesome, but if you see a piece of litter, pick it up today. 🙂
