Thinking Out Loud RSS
So, I'm pretty sure everyone watched Superbowl 52 last night and witnessed history in the making as the Philadelphia Eagles won their very first Superbowl title! The entire game was great from start to the very last few seconds. It was definitely a nail-biter for a lot of folks. What a perfect story for me to write a Motivational Monday blog!
I just returned from a really fun weekend with some friends in Key West, Florida to celebrate one of our friends' bachelor party. Even though I am struggling to get back in the zone for work, I find myself feeling energized and ready to take on upcoming challenges with a more positive attitude.
So, why am I writing about such a private and personal event on this blog? Because I want to talk about the importance of bonding with friends. I am probably one of the oldest guys in the group and I definitely consider myself to be the luckiest one!
As I've gotten older, I've noticed that friends my age are getting together less and less as time goes on. This seems to be an inevitable situation for anyone because of the responsibilities of career and family. After a while, we only seem to get together on very rare occasions such as weddings and funerals. That's why I feel very lucky because I have a group of friends who are still making an effort to get together.
One day, I found myself complaining about every negative thing that was happening in my life. I thought about my mistakes from the past, my frustration from my expectations, and the limited time about my future. I know it's is not very uncommon for anyone to do this. But my situation is a unique because my mission for my brand is to inspire and motivate people. I asked myself, "Who am I to tell people to stop complaining when I find myself complaining randomly all the time?"
On this episode, I discuss the birth of our mission statement and how we came up with our mission statement for our brand. It's very important to have a mission statement because it explains and provides your purpose for your brand or company. Everything you do should follow this mission to prevent yourself from losing your focus.
We actually started out as a website and then eventually evolved to become a clothing line. I intended to just provide content online for people to enjoy and show ourselves having a good time and just hoping that people will be entertained by our experiences. As a young dude, I was visiting different college campuses on the East Coast.
We launched this show on Thanksgiving to start our show by thanking all of our supporters for giving us love throughout all these years! We will be posting episodes of Thinking Out Loud every Thursday and hope you participate in our discussions.
Thank you for watching! We really appreciate it. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
