Morning Coffee Thoughts

gif

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.

TODAY, I BRING YOU AN ICON FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD. A BLAST FROM THE PAST. A MAN YOU SHOULD RESPECT WHETHER YOU AGREE WITH HIS GENERAL DISPOSITION OR NOT. A MAN YOU SHOULD PROBABLY FEAR AT LEAST A LITTLE. LADIES LOVE HIM AND MEN WANT TO BE HIM. THIS MAN IS GOING TO GET YOU FIRED UP FOR YOUR DAY. HE’S GOING TO INSPIRE YOU TO NOT BE A PUSHOVER THIS MORNING. I’M TALKING ABOUT A LARGE MAN — BRUTISH, SOME MIGHT SAY. I’M TALKING ABOUT A MAN WHO IS AFRAID OF NOTHING. HE TAKES WHAT HE WANTS. HE HAS HAIR ON HIS CHEST AND BALLS IN HIS SACK. HE UNDERSTANDS THAT OVERSIZED WOLFLIKE MAN-BEASTS ARE A THREAT TO OUR SOCIETY. YOU CAN’T STOP HIM — YOU CAN ONLY HOPE TO CONTAIN HIM. HIS NAME IS GASTON AND HE IS HERE TO PUMP (CLAP) YOU UP.

If you’re not fired up right now I don’t know what to tell you. Male or female, that song should rev your engine good. A nice, nostalgic rev deep down in your innards. We should all strive to be a little bit more like Gaston.

Odds are, some of you are actually too fired up now and need to chill out a little. For that, I also have a remedy. Watch this next video and just have yourself a nice chuckle. Not a full-on laugh, but a hearty chuckle. Sip your coffee and smile. Then you’ll be ready to mercilessly destroy Wednesday.

What’s on your 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.
