When Life Pushes, Push Back

GD Star Rating

bike_uphill_300I read a really great (but sad) article today.

The best line from that article:

“A little push today turns into a big life  tomorrow.”

That hit me really hard today.

I’ve had friends like the JB in that article.

Some people just have demons. We all have some.

The lesson I really took from that article is that all that matters each day is to push. You don’t have to slay dragons every day. You don’t have to move mountains. Progress is enough.

Even if it’s only one step.

Look, we all have struggles. I’m not immune.

But every day I get up and PUSH. It’s not always easy, but I do it.

I have a pretty big reason why with a young daughter, but even before her I still pushed.

What’s your push?

Don’t spend 20 years doing something you can’t stand. Business is more than making money. In fact, money is the lowest reward there is. It’s only a way to keep score and a bad one at that.

Sorry for the darker tone today.

I’m just feeling a but low today, but I’m still pushing.

Please do the same.

I’ll leave you with one more of my favorite quotes:

“Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’” – Andy Dufresne (Shawshank Redemption)

Life can devour you if you don’t push. Don’t let your business run you.

You run it.

P.S. One of the greatest things Jynell and I ever did was to create our business around us. Some would call it a “lifestyle business”. We just call it smart.

Go here to check out how you can do the same.

Keep on pushing.


“A little push today turns into a big life tomorrow.”

Take care.
