Hey you! Good afternoon--
I hope you're kicking ass today! I'm talking about being early for meetings/class, lunches ready before the kids get up type of kicking ass. That everyday grind type of kicking ass!! That perpetual never ending hustle that your attitude completely dictates. <----- That last paragraph is what this piece is about. And I want to make it clear:
I'm not just talking shit like I know all. I'm writing this more as a journal piece of what I've been seeing and hearing from clients and friends & I think it's important to learn from our peers and especially our elders.
Keeping your ear to the streets if you will.
This is a crazy and extremely exciting time to be alive! Right! We're literally witnessing and experiencing change in every factor of our lives. The way we shop, the way we buy our coffee at the cafe on the corner, the fact we swipe our cards for a $1.25 purchase?! The extreme effects either positive or negative of social media and how that's completely changed the way we advertise and market...
In short, there's a lot going on.
There's a lot going on that we can't control, too.
What I'm taking time out of our day for by having you read this post is, drum roll please.................CUT OUT EXPECTATIONS FROM THE WORLD & CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS & ACTIONS.
"Sure, Nico. Sounds good man."
If not, we completely set ourselves up for failure. We quite literally start our day defeated if our mind is not in the right place.
"I don't have time to meditate, Nico."
That's not what this is about. I'm asking you to simply look into things more MACRO than MICRO. To be so focused on your vision or dream that anything contrary to that is white noise.
I'm asking you to do you.
No permission needed.
Keep kicking ass.
Care to be human?
