The Blueprint with Eliot Marshall

Aug 21, 2023

Alright, let's get honest for a sec. I know what some of y'all are thinking: "Why do the work?" And no, I'm not talking about clocking into your 9-5. I mean that deep, soul-searching, introspective work on ourselves. When most days are pretty average and you're coasting along just fine, why dig deep? Why push yourself? Why face the mirror?

Here's the kicker: It's not about the good days. It's about prepping for the challenging ones.

Let's paint a picture. Most days, you wake up, everything's decent. The kids are alright, your partner hasn’t suddenly turned into an alien, and your bank account isn't throwing any surprises. Everything's just... meh. So why go the extra mile?

The raw truth is, storms do come. Life isn't always a walk in the park. Unexpected challenges? Check. Emotional breakdowns? Check. Days when everything seems to be going against you? Triple check.

It's precisely for these days that you've gotta "do the work."

Think of it like mental and emotional muscle-building. You can't expect to lift heavy weights out of the blue if you've never set foot in a gym. Similarly, when life drops its curveballs, you can't expect to handle them without having built up your resilience, strength, and adaptability.

Mental strength isn't a one-time achievement, folks. It's like a subscription service - gotta renew it regularly. Just because you conquered a mountain back in '82 doesn't mean you're set for life.

So yeah, on those "blah" days, you've gotta keep at it. Meditate, practice gratitude, pray, work out—whatever fills your soul. You gotta keep building that internal armor.

Why? 'Cause when life tries to knock you down, you'll be ready to stand tall, look it straight in the eye, and say, "Not today." So dive into your passions, harness that power, and share your purpose with the world. Keep at it, champs! ✨👊
