“I wake up every morning at nine and grab for the morning paper. Then I look at the obituary page. If my name is not on it, I get up.” – Benjamin Franklin
That is a cute quote from old Benj, yet for a lot of people it’s true (to some extent). Every day, many people reach for the alarm (or the snooze button) and they lay there with no goals for the day, no hopes, no dreams. A few will wake up, take a shower and head to a job that they despise. Some will go through their typical morning routine, but there is no joy, or excitement or vision. It is what they did yesterday and it’s what they will do tomorrow.
Then there are those who maybe have no job to go to, a tower of bills to pay laying on the nightstand, with little or no money in the checkbook to pay them. They are living without hope, believing that their dreams have vanished and that the life they’ve dreamed about is in their rear view mirror.
Life is too short to live like this. I’ve been there. Just like many of you, I’ve had mornings where, like Benjamin Franklin, I wondered if my name was in the obits section.
Here is what I want for you.
I want your life to start TODAY. Real life. Passion! Excitement!
My goal is to help you to thrive, not lean wearily over to the alarm clock, reach for the snooze button, and go back to bed. I want to help you wake up, thank God for another day he has given you, and to live it…to the max.
I want to motivate and inspire you to be all that you can be in life and in business. Not just to dream dreams, but to MAKE LIFE HAPPEN.
Look – you are reading this, which means you aren’t in the obituary section of today’s newspaper. So let’s get this party started.
Who’s with me?
