The Morning Manifesto
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing — that’s why we recommend it daily.” — Zig Ziglar
“Do what you love and do it often.” — Holstee Manifesto
Always be open to new opportunities and experiences, especially if they intimidate you. As the song goes: if you get the chance to sit it out or dance — dance. Life is too short for regrets.
Remember to be grateful for the people, places, and opportunities in your life. Take a couple minutes every day to look around at this amazing world; never take it for granted. Stand in the rain, look at the stars, watch a sunset.
The bad experiences come with the good and they often have a valuable lesson to teach; respect them and move on. Cultivate a positive attitude by looking for the good in every situation within reason. Sometimes sucky things just happen.
Always choose adventure. When it comes to spending money, spend it on new experiences; not the new car and bigger house. Spend more time with the people that are important in your life. And for goodness sake, put away your phone.
Never stop chasing after what’s important to you. It’s going to be a struggle to always know where you need to go, but as long as you’re working towards your next goal, whether you do so at your job or on your own time, you’ll find your way.
Never lose your childlike sense of wonder and curiosity. Pursuing your passion is hard work, so make sure to take a break and have fun as often as you can. Be silly, joke around, sing and dance, and most of all, just enjoy life.
“Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure.”
