As December starts today, I am blown away by all the amazing things that have happened to me and my family this last year. What comes to mind when you think about events in your life this last year? Here is what pops in to my mind:
- I’ve spent real, quality time with my family.
- I spent an entire week with some of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met in a beautiful place.
- I’ve helped a ton of people begin their fitness journey and get healthier, in turn, truly changing their lives.
- I’ve gotten up every day with purpose.
What is your purpose? Something that always sticks in the back of my mind is this idea that I’m supposed to get up early 5 days a week, leave my family for 8-10 hours, sit in traffic, come home irritated, make dinner, go to bed and do it all over again until I’m 65 (if I’m lucky to ‘retire’ on time) and then live on a fixed income with the limited 401k I’ve been able to save for the last 35 years.
Writing that out, it sounds really shitty. Flat out, I don’t want to do it and I’ve decided I won’t. I have DECIDED! Not like I’m going to try… I’m going to see what happens… I’ve DECIDED I won’t do it!
I get up every day with purpose – to make the lives of others and myself better. Because if you aren’t making someone else’s life better, you are wasting your time. When I look back on my year, I know I haven’t wasted my time.
I’m not any more special than anyone else – you can do this too. If you think you are ready to DECIDE that your life can, should, and will be better – email me right now and I’ll stop what I’m doing to talk to you.
