So…. It’s Monday…. Another week, but unlike the mass majority of the population… this gets me FIRED UP!
Why?! Because it’s a new week, which is another opportunity to crush goals and make a difference.
Today, as always, I started my morning ritual by listening to my favorite podcast (The Jay Ferruggia Show), usually I do an audio book but this is always a good change up.
The title of this episode was, “The #1 Question to Ask Yourself”.
The title got me right off the bat and I knew I had to check it out, especially because it is Monday and I’ll be honest even though new weeks get me fired up… I woke like a zombie today.
Funny thing is, I didn’t go out late or drink at all this weekend…. But last night we had a Vigor Ground Team BBQ/Potluck and damn! We got down on WAY too much food!
So anyway, this title got me back into my fired up state of mind because I knew it’d be good.
Now there’s a link to check it out and I suggest you do, but I’m still going to let you know what the question is anyway.
“If you died today, who would be at you’re funeral and what would they say?”
Wow… That shit made me think, really hard.
And although it sounds depressing and Jason even stated this might get you down a bit… It actually didn’t get me down at all.
It inspired me.
When I thought of this question, I closed my eyes and literally imagined what I would see.
It was a Saturday morning, sun was out and surprisingly not very “black”. What I mean by that is that not everyone was wearing dark black suits, I saw colors.
I saw many people, in fact so many I couldn’t really point anyone particular out besides my girlfriend and mother who were at the stand speaking for me.
What I got out of this was relieving, because it wasn’t a disappointment.
I know that if I died tomorrow, people would show they’re love for me at my funeral. They would embrace the life I lived and the lives I helped, rather than weep in sorrows. Would people be in tears and sad, yes obviously… but you get my point.
This told me I am doing something right and moving in the right direction, but even more than that it made me realize that this life is short. Way to short and I barely have enough time as it is to do all things I want to do and help as many people as I want to help.
It put me into motivation to do more, hustle harder, reach more people, experience more things, travel more places and accomplish way more than I have ever dreamed of.
So today I want you do go through exactly what I did this morning… Close your eyes and ask yourself that question. See what comes to mind and let it motivate you to be great rather than depress you or put you into a negative state of mind.
Imagination is a powerful tool, use it properly and the world is yours…
