Morning Coffee Thoughts

denz

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.

POUR THAT COFFEE LONG AND STRONG, MY FRIENDS. LONG AND STRONG. CHAMPIONS DON’T LET MONDAYS GET THEM DOWN. CHAMPIONS MAKE MONDAYS BOW DOWN. YOU’RE A CHAMPION, AREN’T YOU? GODDAMN RIGHT.

DON’T APPROACH THIS MONDAY LIKE YOU HAVE SO MANY OTHERS — WITH THE MINDSET THAT IT’S JUST THE FIRST IN A STRETCH OF FIVE DAYS WHERE YOU’RE STUCK SLAVING AWAY FOR THE MAN. THAT’S THE MINDSET OF A LOSER. APPROACH THIS MONDAY AS AN ATTACKER. DON’T LET THIS WEEK COME TO YOU. SPRINT AT THAT MOTHERFUCKER WITH THE RAGE OF A THOUSAND VOLCANOS IN YOUR EYES AND LET IT KNOW WHO’S BOSS. THROW BACK THAT FIRST CUP OF COFFEE AND POUND AWAY AT YOUR KEYBOARD LIKE A DEMENTED PORN STAR ON STEROIDS. MAKE THAT FIRST SALES CALL WITH THE CONFIDENCE OF PRE-FIGHT MUHAMMAD ALI IN HIS PRIME. ROLL INTO THAT FIRST MEETING WITH THE GUSTO AND CHARISMA OF JAMES FUCKING BOND.

THE RULES WERE MADE TO BE BROKEN AND MONDAYS WERE MADE TO BE CRUSHED LIKE SMALL BUGS BENEATH YOUR FEET. LEAVE NO DOUBT WHEN THE CLOCK STRIKES MIDNIGHT ON THIS DAY THAT YOU GAVE IT EVERYTHING YOU HAD.

LEAVE. NO. DOUBT.

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