Morning Coffee Thoughts

soprano

Every morning, we gather here to contemplate, plan, soak up inspiration, harvest motivation, and get jacked up on coffee and confidence for a day of kicking ass.

IT’S TUESDAY AND YOU’RE STILL BREATHING. PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR CHEST. FEEL THAT BEATING HEART. CLOSE YOUR EYES. THINK ABOUT WHAT EACH BEAT SIGNIFIES. THAT’S A MAGICAL MUSCLE PUMPING LIFEBLOOD THROUGHOUT YOUR ENTIRE DAMN BODY. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING.

YOUR VERY EXISTENCE IS A FUCKING MIRACLE. EVERY DAY YOU WALK THE FACE OF THIS EARTH IS A BLESSING. WHEN THE PRAISES GO UP, THE BLESSINGS COME DOWN. TO NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BLESSINGS BESTOWED UPON YOU WOULD BE A TRAVESTY. AN UNFORGIVABLE DISSERVICE TO ALL OF HUMANITY. DO NOT BRING GREAT SHAME TO YOUR FAMILY BY DENYING YOUR DESTINY OF GREATNESS.

A PROPHECY WAS FORETOLD THAT ONE DAY A YOUNG MAN OR WOMAN WOULD RISE UP AND KICK THE EVERLIVING SHIT OUT OF A RANDOM TUESDAY IN FEBRUARY, FOREVER SOLIDIFYING THAT CERTAIN SOMEONE AS A SUCCESS-BREWING BADASS THAT NO LIVING BEING HAD THE MEANS TO STOP. TODAY IS THAT RANDOM TUESDAY, AND YOU ARE THAT YOUNG MAN OR WOMAN.

NOW, PRETEND YOUR BOSS IS TONY SOPRANO AND YOU’RE GOING TO BE FITTED FOR A PAIR OF CEMENT BOOTS IF YOU DON’T DOMINATE. GET OUT THERE AND CRACK SOME FUCKING HEADS.

I’m so fired up for this day that I might literally drop down and crank out some pushups to get my blood pressure even higher. I’m feeling the flow. The vibes are strong within me. Let them flow from my keyboard to yours. Take in this great energy and shoot it up like heroin, but like heroin for successful people, not loser junkies. This is our time. We are the future. The young working men and women of America who will run the world like the mob for the next 20 or 30 years until we’re ready to sail off into the sunset on our yachts and make sweet love covered in champagne until we pass on to the next life. It’s true, someone might’ve dosed my coffee. You got a problem with that? Shine motherfucker, shine.

What’s on the schedule this morning? What are you going to conquer today? Let us know in the comments section below. Positivity only. Build the energy. Come correct or don’t come at all.
