I’ve been up since 5am and I’m feeling gooood! I’ve will be writing a blog all about utilising your mornings to get the best out of your day BUT we will save that for another day! Today I wanted to sprinkle a little light on why you may not be particularly excited that its a Monday and just how we can help you out.
Normally the dread of waking up to a new week can stem from the fact that you hate your job which means you’re not doing what you love. Now as morbid as this sounds, we are all going to die. In fact you are dying right now, it just may be that you haven’t got an incurable decease that you fail to acknowledge that every day is a blessing and the problem you have is you think you have time.
I am a massive fan of Steve Jobs (Founder of Apple and Pixar) and his story, but one thing that always spoke to me was his opinion and passion for doing what you love. He said every morning he would look in the mirror and ask him self ‘If this was the last day of my life would I wanna do what I’m about to do, and if the answer is no a few days in a row then I know it is time to change something.’ This is invaluable advice. As many of you rise and get out the house today ask yourself this same question. If the answer is no then don’t settle! Find what you love, stay working and hustling but don’t you ever settle until you’ve found that job or career that makes you want to jump out of bed every morning.
In true Monday Motivation tradition I will leave you with this cool video I found of one of Steve Jobs speeches. I hope you are inspired as I was and I will let you in to a secret, I don’t particularly like my part time job so after watching this video I went and applied for what I could call my dream job. Like Steve Jobs says. I’m going to die anyway, what do I have to lose?
So don’t settle! Find your passion and love what you do!
Happy Monday and have a good one!
