So stop over analyzing and researching the project, new business, side income, new car, new home, next investment.

You don’t have time to think too much. You have time to make moves. You have time to risk and invest into you.

You are not going to get out of this life alive.





To die.

Mortality Motivation

If you have never heard of it, mortality motivation is the realization that you are going to die so go do what you need to do.

You have this moment right now. You can either take action towards your dream or you can keep sitting here. Watching the world go by. Hear about others getting better jobs, starting the successful business, and earning the things you’ve always wanted.

There is no guarantee on the future.

Do something for your future self now.

Anyone can still dream of the business and awards they’ll earn while commuting from work to home. Or say they could do that while watching others start successful blogs, vlogs, websites, businesses, and social media channels.

How many of them will ever actually do it?

Are you willing to work in the unseen hours? Are you willing to risk everything on a dream that no one but you can see?

That dream may be huge like starting a distillery. Or a cyber security firm. Or a specialty retail shop. It can be anything. Are you willing to realize you don’t have forever.

So even though I can’t start distillery today. I can start committing to working while others are sleeping on things I can do right now. So I can start building up the funds to start the distillery.

What’s your big crazy going impossible because it’s going to cost too much dream that you can see, hear, smell, feel, touch in your mind?
