I have a feeling that today is going to be a really really really good day.  What about you?  Do you sense that in your soul?  Do you look forward with anticipation to the good that will happen today?  Do you look forward to what might happen today?  Do you look forward to the surprises that are in store for you today?

“The cave you fear to enter contains the treasure you seek.”

— Joseph Campbell (paraphrased)


“The next time you feel slightly uncomfortable with the pressure in your life, remember no pressure, no diamonds. Pressure is a part of success.”

– Eric Thomas


You can only find out what you are made of if you TRY!

You can only find how far you can go by going there!

You can only figure out how hard to push yourself by pushing yourself!


Michael Jordan or Wanye Gretzy once said that you miss 100% of the shots that you never take.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anticipate hardship as just part of life.  Look for the blessings in the midst of the hardship.  That is the key to living a good life.  

AFFIRMATION OF THE DAY: The person that you will spend the most time with in your life is yourself, so you better try to make yourself as interesting as possible.

Today may your heart be filled with love for yourself and love for other people.

Today I say to you – YOU GOT THIS!


Today is not just another day on this planet earth. Today is a unique opportunity to be your best self and put your best foot forward.  Today is a unique opportunity to live and show up and honor this day.  Today you get another chance to live. Today you can get your steps in and move your body and eat healthy foods and live your life on purpose.

Today you got this and can have a positive attitude about what happens to you today.

I respect myself and love myself.

Today is going to be a really great and extraordinary day.

I am flowing easily with new experiences.

I am a beam of joy.

I am an important part of the universe.

Today is a great day to be alive.

Today is ripe with possibilities.

Today is amazing!

Never miss a Monday workout!

you don't need a new year to make a change all you need is a monday

I enjoy Mondays.  Honestly, I really do.  Mondays are chance for a fresh start to the week.  And if you can get off to a good start on Monday, then the rest of the week has a pretty good chance of going good as well.  And if you start to have consistently awesome days, your whole life can sometimes open up right before your eyes in ways that you never imagined.  Your dreams can start coming true and you can be the person that you were meant to be.

So how does Matt have a great week?

1) He starts it off every day with an amazing smoothie.  It’s a great nutritional kick start to my day.

2) As I have mentioned before meditation is a big part of my morning routine

3) I usually like to get a run in on Monday as well.  That helps me also balance my day.

4) I figure out how to do the things I feel like I am called to do, like this motivational email and my blog

5) I try to find meaningful ways to spend my time on things that help me feel good and give my life a sense of purpose.    

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “What you are someday going to be, you are now becoming.”

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You are now, this moment, exactly what you have been in the process of becoming all your life.

Are you now the person you dreamed about becoming? If so great, if not make some changes in your habits.


“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”

Mahatma Gandi

I hope this e-mail has encouraged you in some way.  Keep being awesome and go dream those dreams and go tackle those goals.  Today is the day to do them  Don’t keep putting it off.  We are only on this earth a short time.

Till next time,
Have a great Monday!

Rise up and put your best foot forward today.

Go hit a home run today in the game if life.

Give it your all.

Go for it!


I am the kind of guy who is hungry for wisdom and knowledge.  One of the ways I gain more wisdom and knowledge is to listen to podcasts in my car on my commute from work.  One of the ones I like is called the Rich Roll podcast.  If you have never checked it out, I encourage you to give it a listen.

He usually does a two-hour podcast with all types of amazing guests each with amazing stories.

If you want to get a quick snapshot of his podcast you can listen to his 2017 best of here:


“If you have ever had one single thought that you wanted something more for your life, please heed that thought. I believe it is the voice of your own heart asking you to become whole again.”

~ Tommy Rosen

“When you put on really effective armor, you do keep things out but you also keep a lot in.”

~Tim Ferriss

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”
~  Audrey Hepburn

“Virtually nothing is impossible in this world if you just put your mind to it and maintain a positive attitude.”

~Lou Holtz


I hope you find the ability to do whatever it is you want to do in this life!  Go for it today and always!  You only live once!

Happy Monday! Keep being awesome!

Happy Monday!

Go dominate today!

Go for what is yours in the universe today.

Be brave.  Be bold.

Know that the people who have done great and amazing things in this world are no smarter than you.

You have what it takes to do anything you want to do.  What is holding you back?

Start believing in yourself.  Start believing you can do great things.

Then start doing them.

You only have a brief and short time on this earth.  Go make the best of today.  Go forth and be awesome!

Life is an extraordinary mystery.  Life is not easy.  In the face of extraordinary diversity life is pouring forth.

Each day can be an amazing adventure when you start to live into your true purpose.





Bring in on!
