26 Jan I am still alive and you are too
Brothers and sisters,
I am still here and if you’re reading this then you are too!
So let me be one of the first to welcome you to another beautiful day.
That’s right I said beautiful and I mean it. Even if it’s cloudy, you have rain, snow, traffic, bills or crying babies.
Life is exactly what you make of it and everyday is a new opportunity to make the best of it.
Let me start this message of purpose, passion and positivity with some guidelines for you the reader.
- If I offended you yesterday with what some of you are calling “Vulgarity” I am not sorry, Unsubscribe.
- If I offended you yesterday with what some of you are calling “Profanity” I am not sorry. Unsubscribe.
- If I offended you yesterday with what my kids call “Potty mouth” I am not sorry. Unsubscribe.
The truth is, I said two words that offended two people.
The sad truth is those two words were exactly what I needed to show the deep and intense
challenges I faced on the scariest day of my life.
I am not a sailor, trucker or white Gangsta rapper although I do have a few friends that are, and honestly
my wife uses more profanity than all 3 combined. [She’s still beautiful]
I am however a husband, father, athlete, coach, friend and mentor.
Some have even called me a roll model and I take pride in those bold statements.
I also know my audience. Which is exactly why I used those two words. If you don’t like what I said yesterday or if you struggled to extract the message I delivered then unsubscribe.
If you don’t agree with someone, enjoy their company or are offended by there use of two classic yet slightly vulgar words then…. You guessed it!
UNSUBSCRIBE, stop listening, change the channel, station and message.
But if you’re still here… Then welcome back all my beautiful friends and let’s KICK @$$ today!
I’m cleaning house this week and you should too!
- Unfriend the guy on Facebook who’s always negative.
- Unfollow the gal who always spams your Instagram.
- Unsubscribe to the thousands of daily messages to your inbox.
But if I am still standing here after you do all 3 of those social cleanses above and you feel I provided some type of value to you, your family or business
and you share some of the same beliefs as me then FRIEND, FOLLOW and SHARE my message of purpose, passion and positivity.
*This is where I would drop the mic and walk off of stage if I were a Gangsta rapper!
But I’m not so let’s get back to the message.
Below you will find a copy of the 8 ways to SHOW UP everyday.
I created this tool for everyday use.
It should be printed out and placed above all else on your desk.
It should be completed above all other tasks in the morning.
Aside from the physical aspect or movement piece it should be completed in 15 to 20 minutes.
I have also provided an audio download for you to listen to this morning on your way to work that explains
each of the 8 ways and a description for each.
