“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs

What are you afraid of? Dreaming? Going against the norm? Daring to dream? Daring to step out on faith and chase your dream down? Are you afraid of failure? Are you afraid that people will judge you? Are you afraid that you will SUCCEED? Are you afraid that its too hard to live the life that you would design for yourself? STOP it now…no more excuses FUGETABOUTIT! The past is the past, the future is owned by you. You control your DESTINY, you and only you. You have the power to WIN, the power to LOSE and the power to LEARN from both. The question is are you too afraid to ignore all outside influences and reach the DREAMS that you desire?

In the movie Donnie Brasco, Johnny Depp’s character goes into a discussion about the meaning of the phrase fugetaboutit. The phrase was popular at the time and had different meanings. At the end of the discussion, Depp concludes that sometimes it simply means FUGETABOUTIT, which translates to forget about it. So today’s blog is about just that, forgetting about it. Everything in your past failures and accomplishments, rises and falls, high points, and low points…FORGETABOUTIT. It is important to not dwell on the past regardless of the type of past that existed. Often people get so caught up in the negatives for example, of the past regarding a person, place, or thing that their future outlook is sharply skewed. How can you progress if you can’t MOVE ON and FUGETABOUTIT?

I challenge each of you to start today A NEW, don’t allow your past to trap your future. Realize that today, YES TODAY, is the GREATEST day of your life. And tomorrow will be even better. Do not waste time on the dreams of others, do not waste time talking about what you could, should, or can be doing. Instead, talking about what you WILL be doing and it begins today. Time is certain, and so is our demise. But what we do with it until that conclusion is up to us, and only us. Do not allow others to determine your outcome and most importantly do not let your past predict your future. YOU HAVE GREATNESS IN YOU NOW UNLOCK IT AND GO SHARE YOUR ABILITIES WITH THE WORLD…


Be GREAT at what you do today!
