Own the Weekend!

It’s Friday.  A day of great anticipation for the majority of Americans.  It’s a day that we yearn for almost every other day of the week and, now, it is finally here!  So what are you going to do about it?  How are you going to bless it?  How are you going to make it count?  Make it special?  Make it memorable?  Simply put, how are you going to own it?!

Keep these thoughts at the forefront today, tonight and throughout your weekend.  When you start complaining about the weather, the food, the kids, the laundry, the gym crowd, the dinner plans you now wish you never made, the neighbors’ loud dog, the sourpuss at the dry cleaners, the rude customer service representative, and a million other things that you can bitch about… then stop and pause and remind yourself that you have been praying for the weekend to come since last weekend ended.  And with that comes the responsibility to make the weekend positive.  Energetic.  Enjoyable.  Thrilling.  Riveting.  You catch my drift?

Life is about taking ownership of each and every day.  Making good days great, great days epic, and finding the silver linings within the days we consider bad or mundane.  So this weekend – when the rain is pouring, the party is underwhelming, and the beer served is Miller High Life instead of Stella Artois – remind yourself that you’re grateful to be alive; that you’re appreciative of the company; and that you’re going to make the day one to remember so that those who didn’t do the same will be jealous of your ownership.

Honor Life this Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is upon us.  It is a day to pay tribute to those who have died in active military service.  It is a day to say ‘thank you’ to the brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives in order to allow us Americans to be free.  A right that we as Americans too often take for granted.  A right that but for our heroes’ sacrifice, would only be a dream.  A right for which we must stand.

Take time this weekend to not only honor our fallen friends, but to honor our own lives as well.  Life is fragile.  Each day we awake is a day that we should celebrate.  Another chance to spend time with family and with friends.  Another chance to taste the sugars of life’s subtle rewards.  Another chance to change the world.

Kiss your spouse.  Kiss your kids.  Let the sun fill you with energy that sets your soul on fire.  Go for a run.  Workout.  Play an instrument.  Hit the pool, lake or beach.  Be present.  Be grateful.  Be.

 

Ep. 22 Recap – Paul Franklin

Paul Franklin is the principal at Franklin Capital Strategies, a financial services firm that specializes in estate planning and insurance for small business owners and entrepreneurs; athletes and celebrities.  His “no quit” mentality coupled with his detailed level of attention to each and every client makes Paul a popular choice when it comes to future wealth generation.  I was greatly inspired by Paul’s attitude as he discussed the challenges of being told, “no.”  Rather than looking at “no” as a closed door, he looks at “no” as simply “no, not right now.”  And he uses that type of rejection to fuel his fire and improve wherever possible.  Or as Paul had put it:

I run to failure.

It is that type of mentality that separates the winners from the losers.
