I Just Don't Want To

READY8 “Today is just a good day in disguise.” ~ Paul Venghaus

AIM8 Ever have a day where you just don’t want to do anything? That’s the day when you need that extra cup of coffee or for the radio to play a song you just have to sing along with in order to get that jump start you’re lacking. If we feel this way on occasion, then why do we question our children about why they “just don’t want to do things?” Truth be told, they are young, impressionable and are still learning what’s right, what’s wrong and what they can get away with in life. As adults, we know what’s right, we know what’s wrong and we know, mostly, what we can and cannot get away with. For children, their parents are their main motivators and the ones who keep them on track and moving ahead. For you, what, or who, is YOUR motivator? If you’re honest with yourself, you know that YOU are your own motivator. You cannot rely on others to keep you moving forward. So, what’s holding you back today? To quote Disney World’s Carousel of Progress attraction, “There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day.” What are YOU waiting for? GO! Seize the day! You are the only one standing in your way, so step aside and look out world! Here you come!

FIRE!8 Put on your big kid pants, grab coffee if you have to, and step head-strong into today! I’m certain that whatever challenge you are predestined to face, or whatever opportunity you are attempting to unfold, you will approach it with enthusiasm, success and a silly victory dance will be in order this evening.

Be Excellent!
