Monday Morning

Real quick, this is just a rant. Very simple.

And something that I want you to pass on or watch every Monday morning because the level of complaining is unacceptable.

Look, what if I told you this was the last Monday morning of your life?

What if I told you you’d die this week?

Would you complain about your crap job or that test you don’t want to take?

I doubt it.

You’d go much higher level thinking. Well that’s really what it takes.

It takes understanding that if you’re not pumped right now, if you’re begrudging what you’re about to do, if you’re not looking forward to it — Look, I respect practicality:

You got to go through school because your parents want you to, you got to pay your rent, you got student loans, I get it.

But please recognize the world we are living in.

We are living in a world where there is so much more opportunity; this internet thing created way more opportunity for all of us. Way more.

I mean look, you might not even be alive.

Like, your mom and dad could have had sex like three minutes latter and you wouldn’t even exist, and you’re complaining. You could have ended up being a bus, a tree!

I just don’t get the mentality of being head-down sad on a Monday morning.

I’m going to make Monday morning my bitch!

I’m going to make you Saturday, Monday morning.

That’s what I want to do every morning, and thats what I want from you.

Please, take a step back and think about how awesome it actually is. And then, recognize that you can attack the world in a totally different way because you were lucky enough to be born during this era.

“Alright, so we’ll start off with that first question. Should people make New Year’s resolutions?”

People should make New Year’s resolutions if they are actually watching this video on January first.

If they’re watching it on December 23rd, they should make December 23rd resolutions.

Waiting, miraculously, to when the calendar flips to start making your life better is silly at best, and pisses me off at worst.

And so, whenever you’re watching this, because it lives on the internet and thus that means you can watch this on June 17th, 2017,

Make a resolution every day of your life because you only get one at bat.

The reason people struggle with having a New Year’s resolution and sticking to it is because it was a tactic to do a New Year’s resolution.

Hence why my first answer was right,

Which was, when you actually decide to make a change in your life,

Whether about weight, or job, or going out with somebody, or relationships,

That’s when you actually pull it off.

Its religion, not tactics.
