I am a big fan of the movie Snatch. I was watching the Snatch Best Quotes on Youtube today (NSFW language in there, by the way) and one of the first quotes was related to unlicensed boxing not being a tickling competition.
It’s one of those things, right? Life is not a tickling competition and if you are coming to this site for inspiration for sports, you`re likely to find a mildly obsessive guy who writes about pushing limits and breaking convention. Not quite a tickling competition or an ice cream eating festival. It takes quite a bit of letting go and breaking the rules you set for yourself to get to the best version of yourself.
Last night I posted a tweet about letting go and it touched a chord with quite a few people out there. Again, letting go is not easy. It’s not a tickling competition.
Here are some other things you should be thinking about caring a little more about. Life is all about taking chances. It’s about doing something you initially thought you could never do. It’s about being a little crazy, following your heart, and not worrying about every detail of what everyone else thinks. And above all, it’s about learning to love who you are and what you have.
Once you click that you need to care about these things for YOU, things will improve:
- Care about your own happiness.
- Care about your goals and dreams.
- Care about how you invest your time, every single day.
- Care about how you think and why you think that way.
- Care about your long term health.
- Care about this moment called life.
Caring about those things, investing time in them, making sure you are getting the most out of YOU – those are the simple things that will make this amazing journey we are on just that much better. Sure, its not a tickling competition, but we can make it so much easier for ourselves by caring about a few simple things.
Go out there and smash it.
