TGIF…woo hoo!

Thank God It’s Friday?!@# What kind of talk is that? Many people talk about having a case of the “Mondays” or Hump Wednesday and of course TGIF. To me, that’s all negative thoughts. That’s how losers feel. Why waste your whole week waiting for the weekend? Life is too short, make the most of it. Sure, there might be days that you don’t feel well, or are tired, but take action anyway! Get energized, enthusiastic about what you are doing. Fake it if you have to.

Meditate and appreciate. I meditate all throughout my day. Anyone can do it. All you really have to do is take a step back, and APPRECIATE all that you have…from your family to your friends…from your car to the paved roads that you drive on…from your home to the food on your plates…from the trees to the flowers. I could go on, but I trust you get my point. You can do it anywhere; while driving, waiting for the bus or during a meal. Life moves pretty fast and if you don’t have gratitude, you will not have true fulfillment. Material things are not happiness. Money is not happiness. The world has never been richer, but it has has also never been so miserable. So what does that say? Money isn’t everything. Make a difference, have gratitude, be the best you can be, appreciate what you have.

My true purpose is to help as many people as I can, worldwide, through being a tennis pro, Special Olympics Coach, mental training expert, life coach and motivational speaker. I don’t want to go to bed at night, and I can’t wait to get up in the morning. People ask me on a daily basis, “Ed, where do you get all your energy?” I say, “I’m high on life. I do what I love, and I appreciate all that I have. Every day is better than the day before.” I set goals, meaningful goals, exciting goals, because success truly is a journey and I am enjoying the process. I know where I want to go in life and what I want to accomplish. I’m not LIVING for the weekend, or DREADING work on Monday; I’m only going to come through this life once, so I want to make the most out of it by helping others, making the world a better place…and leaving a LEGACY.

So enjoy your weekend and when you see me at work on Monday, please pardon my big smile and energy, because I will STILL be enjoying MY weekend.

Homework: Go out this weekend and do something enjoyable…THEN go out and help someone out that is in need. Then email me and tell me how you feel. That reminds me…I want to go read to the blind next week.
