Motivation Monday #124

Get a brighter start to the week with Motivation Monday! This week’s quote comes from Jonathan Goldsmith, ‘The World’s Most Interesting Man’.

"You can watch the parade that is life or you can get in and participate in your own journey" - Jonathan Goldsmith

What does your dream life look like, and are you ready to live it?

Today’s quote comes from a really fascinating article on the Politico website, about the actor who portrays ‘The World’s Most Interesting Man’ in the Dos Equis commercials. The full quote is:

I can say with certainty that to be interesting you have to be interested. You can watch the parade that is life—and live vicariously through others, as many do—or you can get in and participate in your own journey.

This really resonates with me. It’s so easy to sit back and watch as other people live your dream, and so scary to think about taking those first steps towards living your own dream. I know that I’ve watched other bloggers going on trips that I’d love to take, or collaborating with brands that I wanted to work with. For so long I just sat and envied them, read their blog posts, wished it was me…

But this year I’m starting to do more things that scare me, take those first steps, try and make my own dreams come true. Don’t get me wrong, it still scares me, but when I make something happen, it feels so good!

And it’s never too late to make a start. Jonathan Goldsmith was in his late 60s when he auditioned for the Dos Equis advert. His career was going nowhere fast, and had money worries. It’s an amazing story and I really recommend reading it. And if like me, you spent your thirties wondering what you were going to do with your life, there’s still plenty of time to start your journey.

So I’d love to know, what would you like your journey to look like?  Whatever your plans are for the days ahead, I hope you have a wonderful week!
