This episode is part of a series that I have dubbed “Motivation Monday.”

(Yes, I know, very creative of me. What can I say, I’m a genius…)

Seriously though, the idea here is simple:

Post a short and punchy episode that I hope gets you fired up to tackle the workouts, work, and everything else that you have planned for the week ahead.

As we all know, it’s one thing to know what you want to do, but it’s something else altogether to actually make yourself do it, and I hope that this series gives you a jolt of inspiration, energy, and encouragement to get at it.

So, if you like what you hear, then make sure to check back for the latest and greatest installment.

The best way to get approval is to not need it. Don’t strive to please or impress others, but only to live up to your own standards of what is right and what is admirable. The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane Marcus Aurelius Once.

Said and insanity abounds here among us moderns, where people watch an average of 38 hours of video content per week, spend an average of one and a half hours on social media per day, play an average of six and a half hours of video games per week spend. On average, over 90% of their income are abandoning marriage and religion.

Collectively watch billions of hours of porn every year. Collectively. Eat over 84 million fast food meals per day. Collectively spend over $230 billion on alcoholic beverages per year. Collectively spend over 10 billion on marijuana every year and collectively smoke. Over $250 billion of cigarettes per year.

While I might add also spending just 17 minutes per day reading, and mostly fiction and novels just under two and a half hours per day, productively working, and less than 30 minutes per day exercising. So don’t be afraid to hold yourself to benchmarks that others consider excessive or unreasonable.

Don’t insult yourself with shriveled expectations for their sake. Keep your own scorecard for measuring success. One that reflects who you are, not who others want you to be, and try to take in more than merely winning, because even despicable people. Can get lucky and win. Can they be the best version of themselves though?

Can they continue to develop and embody more of their potential? Can they be kind, generous, and humble? Don’t be afraid to speak out against offenses either. If something is ugly, say so. If it’s trashy, unacceptable, excessive, unreasonable, degenerate, destructive or demeaning, don’t let it pass. Shield the naked bosoms of beauty and virtue from the slings and arrows of the deranged and the depraved because no defense is too small to make a difference.

Remember, sometimes the finger in the dike can stop the flood. Ultimately the goal is to live with intention and authenticity, with loyalty and understanding, with love and sacrifice and with dignity and meaning, and then to not need anyone’s applause but her own.
