Live Like You Are Dying
May is the worst month and best month of the year for me. Today, marks the 4 year anniversary of my father’s passing and tomorrow will be the one year anniversary of my grandfather’s passing. If that isn’t enough, my brother and cousin passed away in the following weeks. So, you can see why the first part of May is not so good for me. My wife actually would like to lock me up and keep me quarantined until June, but I am not scared and I am pressing on.
Okay, so where does the good part come into play for me, you might ask? Actually, every year when I am reminded of my family members who are no longer with me I get a sense of rejuvenation and a spirit of re-birth. I use their passing as a way to motivate me to do the things that I have said I want to accomplish before it is my time to leave.
I am just curious, how many of you say to yourself, ” I will do that tomorrow or I will experience that next year because I am too busy.” Let me tell you, don’t put off what you can do today for tomorrow because tomorrow might never come. I spoke to my dad hours before he passed away from a heart attack and we were talking about how in a few months he was going to come out to see me in Texas! That day, sadly, never happened and it always sits hard knowing that we should have gotten him out sooner to see us.
I hope you understand what I am trying to say here. I want you to realize that we only have a certain amount of time on this planet to make a difference, and if you have goals that you want to accomplish or have always wanted to start your own business, today is a great day to get started.
Now, with that being said, I want to make sure I am leading by example here. So, here is what I am going to stop putting off. For the longest time now I have had a goal to start a membership site for my business ,and today I am going to start taking action by announcing to you that, How to Train and Grow Rich has officially been started. I am working on the specifics, but initially the site will be geared towards fitness professionals, personal trainers, and group exercise instructors, however, the site can help just about anybody who wants to learn how to create passive revenue streams and develop the lifestyle they want to live. Once I have everything mapped out I will give an update ,but for now I wanted to take action and announce my intentions.
So, what can you do today that you have been putting off? Take action, because tomorrow may be too late. As for me, I will celebrate the lives of my family by striving to become a better father, husband, and business coach. Also I will strive to live out each day to its fullest.
In memory of you Dad, Gramps, Kevin, and Sheila. I will always love you!
