I’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.
