What Are You Doing to Live Awesome Today?

do something awesome todayI’ve got a regular post coming soon, but I’m also kicking off something different this morning. Isn’t that what new beginnings are for?

For 2018, I’ll be adding something new to the daily line-up on Mark’s Daily Apple—a daily takeaway post before the main article each weekday. For those who want a quick tip, simple target, or motivation boost to start your day, this is it.

Sometimes a salient quote, sometimes a fitness strategy, nutrition bite, or personal challenge, each day you’ll find something different—all to help you “Live Awesome” today.

Today’s takeaway is a challenge….

“If you want to lift yourself up, lift someone else up.” — Booker T. Washington

New Year resolutions are often self-focused. It’s natural, of course. The only person we can or should change is the one in the mirror. But we’re an innately social species that thrives on collaboration as well as altruism—and we find a practical, immediate kickback to those instincts. There’s something remarkably impactful about supporting someone else in his/her goal. What you offer fuels your own endeavor. So, choose one way you’ll encourage or help someone else this year. Support folks in the Mark’s Daily Apple Facebook Group or the Keto Reset Group. Coach someone. Be a gym partner. Send a message to someone you know needs it this morning. Put awesome energy out there, and see it expand in your own life.

There’s more to come this morning (including a giveaway), so stay tuned. In the meantime, I’d love to hear what you’d like to see in the daily takeaway posts. Grok on, everybody.

  1. Deadlifts and kimchi for breakfast, a pretty awesome start to the day!

  2. Great addition to the blog & perfect replacement for the daily Primal Blueprint calendar I had for 2017 with the daily tips & motivation 🙂

  3. I started my day by finding PK dressings in my local grocery store or the first time ever! And I’m telling everybody about it! And took a picture of the shelf (with my bottles missing) to post to facebook. That’s my daily dose of awesome!

  4. Mark you are prophetic. I always do personal goals but this new year’s my goal is to help someone else accomplish their goal. This just reinforces that. Awesome quote!

  5. I’m going to start by using proper grammar to live awesomely.

  6. I’m in! Love quick challenges like this. I just send some texts and notes thanking people that have helped me in some way recently. Have been making a big effort to tag small businesses that I believe in all over my Instagram posts and stories to spread the word to others. And during a fun shopping trip yesterday my sister and I made an extra effort to be appreciate and kind everywhere we went…we can make a huge difference in the world just by making our daily face to face interactions positive. Love that MDA is becoming about even more than just health and fitness (although I’m totally into that stuff too)

  7. I’ll be guiding my adult daughter onto the primal and eventual keto path. This is by her request, not my suggestion, so it means that much more to me.
