This last week I took the week off to reflect and ponder about the way we want to move forward. I have all these ideas and thoughts and I find it hard to put them all in action. Anyone else feel the same way? I sit around during the Thanksgiving break and watch shows like “Profit”, “Shark Tank”, and this will come as a surprise “America's Next Top Model.” As I watched all of these episodes and seasons, there came this sense of well, I can do that! I can do that too.
My questions why don’t we do it then?
Let me tie this back to Thanksgiving. You see, the reasons why we are truly thankful or grateful for something because we had to do or go through something to experience it. Megin and I last thanksgiving started getting serious and started falling for each other. Holy smokes I am so grateful for that, but again it took a lot to be thankful for that too. I’ll use that as example. You see Megin was fighting dating me a year ago because she wanted to serve an LDS mission. Everyone knows by now that Megin is from Alaska and this Idaho boy has dreamed of going to Alaska. We were talking about me coming to Alaska and then she was you should come. Guess what I did within a few hours? I purchased tickets to Alaska and I had no idea if she was going on mission or end up dating more.
That's what I am talking about, I more thankful for that leap of faith in taking the risk to go to Alaska. I would argue to say that we are almost always grateful or thankful taking leaps of faith in our lives. Get engaged, getting married, having a newborn, and other huge choices in our life’s.
This brings me back to watching all of these TV Shows. Megin and I love watching stories. Any good film, picture, or video tells a story. We buy product and service because of the story behind it. I am obsessed with brand because of the story their have and the stories I have with their brand.
Why don’t we do the same?
Every morning I wake up and watch Casey Neistat and he is by far the weirdest, coolest guy possibly on Youtube. The guy everyday finds a way to document his life through video. I have tried to do something similar and it is so damn hard, seriously. I feel like all my videos are just me working or editing. So I am going to do something different, and this more for me than it for you, but I want you to come along with this journey.
See I want to tackle and push myself, I thought about Vlogging but to be honest I have come up with the idea that I am going to try and blog everyday. I have extreme case of dyslexia, where writing is something that extremely hard for me. It is a lot easier for me make video, take pictures, and design because that is how I made up for lack of written communication. So my plan is write, video, and teach all Millennial entrepreneurs.
