We’ve got limited time on this world. A lot less than you think. So, there’s a simple decision we’ve all got to make:
Am I going to spend my time doing things that I love, that excite me, and that create a difference in this world? Or am I going to live a shadow life in which I simply pay the bills, then die?
It’s as fucking simple as that.
I don’t care about your so-called obligations. Get so creative that you CAN pay your bills and do work you love. Don’t think you can do that? Then give up now. Resign yourself to an OK life. Face up to the fact that on your deathbed you’ll be repeating the biggest regret of the dying that Australian nurse Bronnie Ware heard so often after years of listening to patients in the last few weeks of their lives:
I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
Do you want to die with your best work still inside you?
Do you want to die NOT having had a crack at something that could change the world?
Do you REALLY want to go into work tomorrow, next week, next month just paying the bills…and then you die?
And that’s why you need to be working on a Remarkable Idea.
Remarkable Ideas have the power to utterly transform our world.
Remarkable Ideas have the power to get us off or arse and actually make us do something about making them happen.
Remarkable Ideas have the power to recruit followers to the cause; other crazy people like us who won’t settle until they see the idea come to life in its full glory.
That’s why I believe in Remarkable Ideas.
They’re the only way I know to change the world for the better.
Yes, we’ve got to have the guts, determination and sheer bloody-minded tenacity to keep ploughing on against everything to make them happen. But we need the power of Remarkable Ideas to get us started in the first place.
And it’s down to you and me to think up these Remarkable Ideas, to find these Remarkable Ideas, to connect different way-out ideas with possibilities into Remarkable Ideas that can become realities.
Yes, you and me dear reader.
Because I know why you’re reading this now – why you read what I write. Because you too are one of the “crazy ones”. Because you have remarkable energy inside you. The energy that means you’re not going to be happy lying on your deathbed full of regret. The energy that means you simply will not put up with some half life – a shadow you going through the motions, living for the weekend, for vacations, for your hobbies, for the bottle, or the wrap, or whatever it is you’ve used in the past – and maybe even use now – to anaesthetise the creative you.
Maybe you don’t have a Remarkable Idea yet, or you’re not sure how remarkable it is (I can help) but if you get up off your arse and do something about finding / creating/ accelerating / 10Xing your Remarkable Idea; then you get to spend your time doing things you love, that excite you, and that create a difference in this world.
My Remarkable Idea?
I believe that every day, every life, every business can be remarkable. I believe that Remarkable Ideas can by 10Xed so that they create even more impact. I believe the answers to three questions can transform your life and your business. And that is why mission is to connect with people who want to live a remarkable life, with businesses who want to create remarkable brands, and to help them them 10X Remarkable.
That’s what I’m doing here today and every day – helping people to 10X their lives and their businesses with Remarkable Ideas.
If you like the sound of that, and would like to know the three questions that can transform your life or your business; then let’s talk.
Or, you could simply live a life of regrets.
