Do your best all the time. Give 100% always. Give it your all everyday. These are great messages that can fuel us and our kids. Some t-shirts say it best and can bring out our inner badass:
- Just Do It
- 2nd Place is the 1st Loser
- My Game is Sick, too bad it ain’t contagious
- Be Legendary
- They can’t stop what they can’t catch
- Wake up, Kick ass, Repeat
- BE FAST OR BE LAST
- Losing is not an option
- Go the extra mile, it’s never crowded
- Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop
But what about the days when you aren’t feeling like a badass? Here are some slogans I’d like to see on a t-shirt:
- Gettin’ it done so I don’t feel like a loser
- 2ND AND 3RD PLACE ARE ACTUALLY REALLY DAMN GOOD
- I got a C- and my life is still going to be just fine
- I did some stuff, now I get to play Trivia Crack
- I’m SO TIRED today
- Yes, seriously, this really is as fast as I can go
- Not My Best Work Today
Being at the top is an amazing feeling. Working to be your best is an important job. But every now and then, I think it’s necessary to throw on an ‘I Showed Up Today‘ t-shirt (#8). Then the next day you can go back to sporting your ‘Go Hard or Go Home‘ gear.
About a month ago I began listening to podcasts during bike rides rather than music. I find that the time goes by super quick because I’m focused on what’s being said. I like comedy, so it’s only suiting that my first podcast that I’m following is a comedian that I like, John Heffron. I’ve listened to him with Martha Quinn as his guest, Danny Bonaduce, and also podcast that talked about personal safety. The one I listened to today was with Jairek Robbins, son on Tony Robbins the motivational speaker. The podcast was interesting because it was:
It talked about setting up your days so the most important factors to you are included, therefore making your days the best possible. (That’s my lame summary, it’s much better addressed in the podcast!) There are definitely things that I think about often that I know I should and could do to make my life more like the ‘picture’ I imagine as the best possible.
Anyhow, I liked it, it was interesting. I think it will be something that lingers on my mind for a bit, so I thought I’d share it. The link is below, it’s not heavy or anything, and there’s a bit of swearing, so there’s your warning. If you have an hour while driving, or on the treadmill, give it a listen. Hope you like it too.
