Over the past few days I have been talking with many people about what inspires them or what they really want to do and the interesting thing that I have discovered is that it comes down to purpose. This video I saw today really hammered in that concept.
If you have ever struggled to breath then you can really relate to the story that is being told. Imagine if we took our health, our fitness or even our lives and lived them by the idea of inability to breath. What if you could go to work today and accomplish something with the same intensity that it would take to capture your first breath of air as mentioned in the story.
When I was about 14 I went to a wave pool. After I caught a wave I came up to breath and there was an floatation tube right above me. Naturally I panicked. I ended up lifting the tube out of the water with 4 people on it just so I could breath again.
I am not saying that little things, like this video, will change the way we go about picking up dog poop or gardening, but what if it could. What if there was something you really wanted but struggled at making it a priority.
I wish I had the answer to helping you make something a priority, but I believe it starts with purpose. You already have the desire to do it now you have to make it a priority. Think about all the things you do in a day. The things you make a priority get done, for the most part. If they don’t get done you get really upset.
What if we could make exercising that same priority. Or what if it was to start your own business.
If you are like me you have a difficult time creating a priority out of something that you want or enjoy.
If you have something you REALLY want to accomplish comment below and tell me that it will be a priority for you.
If you would like to know my priorities (you can have multiple, but choose only 1 or 2). My priorities are to exercise more regularly as well as bring you guys this awesome business I have been working on.
We must realize that we will struggle. Take that struggle as a confirmation that this priority really is a priority. Once we have done this we finally will have a purpose and feel like we are accomplishing that purpose on a daily basis.
