Last weekend I spent a day at a very special event in London. The event was a celebration of who we are BEing in the world.
One of the presenters was Karan Limitless Rai. Yes that is his name. He changed it to express his true identity and potential. For Karan, limitless is not just a word, it is a way of BEing. It is ‘who he is’.
It would be easy to feel envious of this man. He was so incredibly good looking, and ripped! The icing on the cake is that Karan was kind, humble and someone people just connected with. I developed a serious man-crush!
He said something that really stood out for me.
DO EPIC S*#T.
Do things that make you want to get up every morning and say ‘Yes, another day to live!’
I don’t know about you but sometimes I get up and say ‘No, another day to endure, when is the weekend.’
And that’s a shame because I get to miss out in creating a wonderful day. My mind is already made up on how things will go, and now I get to create another day to endure. I will see examples all around me that back up my belief that life is something I suffer, not something I create, live and embrace.
But I will always have a choice.
My future starts now, with thought. What sort of future I want to have starts with how I think about it NOW.
And I want a future full of EPIC SHIT!
