Motivational Monday: 8/26/13

Today is a special day. It’s the morning after the 2013 VMA awards, aka the night Nsync had a reunion and Justin Timberlake solidified himself as one of the best artists of our time. No big deal or anything, but I’ve basically been his number one fan since 1998, and there’s no better feeling than watching your favorite artist absolutely CRUSH everyone else and all other live performances… of all time. Not to mention, seeing Nsync reunite after 8 years instantly brought me back to being 11 years old and screaming at the top of my lungs at one of their many concerts I attended. Doesn’t get much better than that.

This video may not be a ‘motivational’ speech but if it doesn’t motivate you to be the best at your craft or be the best at whatever you do or whatever you want to be then I just don’t know what will.

Enjoy peeps. I’ll be watching this on repeat. ALL WEEK.


p.s. this performance also proved (after a nauseating performance by Miley Cyrus) that putting on a phenominal show doesn’t mean being outrageous and over-the-top…it means that being unbelievabley talented is what entertains above all else. #GoJustin #GoHomeMiley


Motivational Monday

Monday’s are the pits. Every Monday, I feel a lot of not-so-great emotions. Such as:
– I’m tired
– I’m cranky
– I’m depressed the weekend is over
– I’m stressed about all the work I need to get done during the week
– I feel fat after eating and drinking all weekend
– I feel pissed that I’m going to be inside and behind a computer for the next 5 days.

But as much as I hate Mondays, I always have to get through them. And so do you. So I’ve decided I’m going to post inspirational videos to make them not so bad (or at least just a teensy bit better).

This one will take you by surprise FOR SURE. Who knew Ashton Kutcher was not only smart but also really convincing (and clearly so handsome). Anyways, I hope this video makes you feel empowered and enlightened. It may be Monday but you can still go kick some work world ass.
