What drives you to live each day? If I asked you to make a list of the top ten things that you need in your life right now, what would they be? Go ahead and try it. Write down your top ten things in life. Now imagine getting everything else taken away from you. Destroyed. Left. Gone. You have those ten things left that are on your list. Are you happy? Did you write down the ten most important things to you? Is your life going to be drastically different, or are you going to be able to adjust? Sometimes all of these questions are the hardest things to ask ourselves. We never realize where we place our priorities until we take a minute to think about it. Each day think about what is important now. If it is not important now, why are you spending so much time thinking about it?
If you guys are anything like me, you spend some of your time thinking about things that are in the past or yet to come. Instead we should make a conscious effort to focus on what we currently have. There are unexpected turns in life. Some things that you never see coming are in front of you in a blink of an eye. A lot of the time we walk around saying we want this or want that, but are not willing to go out of our way to get it. How bad do you want it? Is it important to you, or just kind of important? It will never be worth it if you put only 70% into each thing you hope to accomplish or want. You have to find your motivation. You have to rock it. It starts with knowing your purpose. There are days I am so uneasy thinking about my future, I lose my focus. I don’t understand my purpose or how much I can accomplish. I put limitations on myself. But those days, those are my bad days. Each morning we have a choice to slay the day. We get to decide if we wake up happy and want to create a positive movement. How do we make that mind shift?
We encourage one another. We find our purpose in life. We know our strengths. We develop our talents. We give it all we have. We are willing to take opportunities and we do not shut ourselves down, but instead we build ourselves up! If you want to WIN in life, you must decide what’s important now. No one is guaranteed extra time to get it right. You need to spark that fire each morning and realize that every day consists of 24 hours. In that 24 hours, are you going to set out and accomplish all that you want to? I know I am asking you to think about a lot here, but it is worth it. I can tell you that setting your attitude right is the first step in developing a meaningful life. If you are not hungry to succeed and do all you wanted to, then where are you going? If you need a little help finding your motivation, I have attached a YouTube video that I find inspiring.
Go ahead and re-write down your ten things that are important in your life now and chase after those ten things. Go out and WIN the day, WIN the week, and WIN your life.
