I don’t have to wait until the end of my life to start resembling the person I want to be. I can make choices today, even if I don’t feel like it, to become that very person.Dr. Justin Brown
- We focus on branding and behaving more often than we focus on becoming.
- We will not wake up one day having become someone we have not been becoming.
- If we don’t decide who we want to become, we could become something else entirely on accident.
- “Who do you want to be?” is a more important question than “What do you want to do?”
- We don’t get to decide when our lives end, but we do get to decide who we will be when that day comes.
- Who we are at the end of our lives is 100% about our choices and 0% about our intentions.
- Write a funeral journal with a list of statements you hope others will be able to honestly say about you at your funeral.
- Share pieces of your funeral journal with trusted friends so that they can keep you accountable by pointing out statements they would not be able to say.
- Refer to your funeral journal regularly as a reminder of who you want to become and a motivator for positive daily choices.
