Below is a video that was recently passed along to me that features a rant from Joe Rogan. His speech begins just before the 1 minute mark (foul language included).
I particularly enjoyed the part about living a life that would make your children proud. So many people waste time living as a fan of someone or something else. Whether it’s obsessing over a sports team or a Hollywood figure, they piss time away following events or people that offer nothing in return.
Rather than wasting what is already limited time, why not instead use it to better your life and those around you? Speaking as a parent, I want my children to have a role model who shares the same roof. The decisions that I make are made with them in mind.
If a documentary crew followed you around throughout the day, what would the viewers think? Would they see you as someone who busts his ass to improve or someone who goes through the motions and takes life for granted?
Personally, my goal each morning is to win the day. I may not win every day but as long as I’m trying, I’m going to make progress.
And for those who recognized the last scene within the previous video, you can see more of it below. Apollo Creed may be a fictional character, but his words couldn’t be more true. Forget about tomorrow when there is still work to be done today.
You may delay, but time will not. – Benjamin Franklin5 comments
