It has been raining for the past month here in Quito.
Worst weather I’ve seen in 4 years of living here.
But not today.
Today was perfect from the moment I got up in the morning till right now in the late afternoon as I’m writing these words.
Sun was out all day. Blue skies with magnificent cloud formations you’ll only see in this part of the world.
I just finished my second training session of the day.
Burpees in the sun followed by some shoulder work.
Took me about 20 minutes. I feel glorious.
But let me make something very clear here before we move on..
All the sunshine in the world, my wife’s beautiful smile, my royal view from the 22nd floor..
Would mean absolutely NOTHING.
If I didn’t live in alignment with my goals.
If I didn’t do the things I have to do every day.
If I didn’t actively pursue the person God called me to be.
I got a major wake-up call last year when I was hit with a case of malaise.. depression.. whatever you wanna call it.
At the time, I had just closed my most successful month since starting my business.
I had more clients, more impact, and enough money to live life on my terms.
But I felt..
I felt empty. And I realized right then and there..
Money will NEVER make me.
I will live at the highest level while I’m here on earth because I am the highest level of human being.
But that’s not it.
That’s not what gets me up before the crack of dawn every morning.
It’s not what pushes me to work my butt off every day and allows me to feel this marvelous sense of accomplishment when I hit the sheets at night.
Not at all.
I remember this quote I read in a book a few years back:
“Some nights I can’t even sleep. I want to wake up so badly and go to work.”
It was Donald Trump talking about his rise in the real estate world.
That quote was on repeat in my mind for years.
I wanted that excitement for life. I wanted it so bad.
I chased that feeling for YEARS but didn’t know how to capture it.
I had days and weeks, short bursts here and there, where I knew exactly what he was talking about.
Waking up with an intense craving for doing, for creating, for winning.
But for the most part, this feeling, this rush, this excitement for life escaped me.
Until.. I created it.
The perfect day.
Early wake-up time.
Multiple mini-workouts inserted strategically throughout the day.
Dedicated work blocks and time for content creation.
Fasting for the bulk of the day.
Enjoying fabulous coffee and eating highly-enjoyable, goal-oriented meals.
Spending quality time with family and friends.
That’s what I live for.
And that’s why I can’t wait to wake up in the morning and start all over again.
But you will NEVER know this feeling..
Until you start living in line with your goals, with your conscience, with God’s plan for your life.
Life is good.
Time to start living it well.
