I just watched a video about older people banding together and creating the coffins they want to be buried in. Literally, they are crafting them by hand and personalizing them. One was covered in pillows and being used as a day bed currently another as a coffee table- To be used properly when needed. They had a song and everything and it was about how the funeral homes did not appreciate them at first- (well they are out a LOT of money) but how they have come around. Funny to watch these older people singing and dancing about living life and wanting to go out the same way they lived their life... It got me thinking... If I were gone today... what would be said about me? It's thought worthy for sure. and how do I want to go out? I want people laughing at my antics or funny things I did not being sad- I am absolutely sure about that. I thought if I made my own casket it would likely be covered in pictures of my family. Especially, my husband and I and our kids. It's the best thing I have created in this life, I believe and its what I would want to be surrounded in at my demise anyway. Kudos to the woman who put tons of pictures of Elvis, but I think I would like mine to be a bit more personal. I would totally invite people to write on my Box with a sharpie something they remember or made them laugh or smile...so I am going out living colorful and BOLD too...Check out the video...
Yes. I know. You hear it.. but do you REALLY hear it? Are you creating your success or siting around hoping it will happen? What is your true intention? I don't care whether you want to be PTO president or the CEO of your own company- it takes the EXACT same thing. ACTION! What are you doing that will get you closer to your goals? What action steps are you taking to accomplish your goal? Are you inspiring other to look at what you are doing or to look away? Don't get me wrong- I do not think you should look for peoples approval of your actions, but you DO need action to succeed. Go your own speed, run your own race, be your own boss, listen to people ONLY who are exactly where you want to go- NOT to those who are failing or who have failed at what you are trying to accomplish. If you want to be president of the USA- you should NOT go ask three people who failed! Go ask three people or their campaign managers that WON- what they did RIGHT! Really people- stop spending time with people who are experts are not going to ever accomplish what you are after. Success leaves clues... follow the trail! Align yourself with people who are hitting home runs if you want to be successful in baseball- don't go spend hours with the baseball card collector. Follow the person walking the walk not just talking the talk! Go hit your own dang home run would ya! You can you know....
Just a gal who believes with all her heart she has the power to help others live a life they deserve!
