Episode #81 You're Gonna Die
We all know we’re going to die someday, but how many of us believe that we will die today? This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Logan Brown introduce us to the marble mindset and how to live each day as if it’s our last.
When I was a kid, there was a three-month period where every single night, I was absolutely convinced I was gonna die. I remember creeping into your room and my heart is racing because I’m always scared to wake you up in the middle of the night… But I wake you guys up, and I’d say, ‘Mom, I think I’m gonna die.’Logan Brown
- Every single human being is going to die, and most of us will die sooner than we expect.
- We often fail to make positive changes today because we don’t want to acknowledge the possibility that yesterday’s choices were unhealthy or unhelpful.
- Time can only ever be invested or wasted; it can never be saved.
- The brevity of life puts the beauty of life into perspective.
- The awareness that we are going to die motivates us to live life well.
- We can never reclaim the last hour, but we can always reclaim the next hour.
- Count the days left in your life if you were to die on your 75th birthday.
- In every 24-hour period, remind yourself that your greatest priority is human connection.
- Create a daily physical reminder that you are going to die someday – a marble mindset.
