FAM! Welcome to BrianOnrea.com. I’m Brian Onrea.
I’m purposely writing this first entry to put out on a Monday. People dread Mondays. This is so prevalent that many people often can’t even enjoy a Sunday evening because they are sad that they have to go to “work” the next day. This is a cycle that happens over and over again. Week after week, month after month, and year after year. Next thing you know, you’re dead and gone.
Props and congrats to those of us who love what we do and enjoy going to work every day. For those of us that don’t enjoy what you do I encourage you to take time out this week and do some soul searching. My philosophy is that life is way too short and we only get one to live so we ought to try to enjoy it as much as possible.
Our jobs and professions take up almost a third of our daily lives. Let’s think about it. With 8 hours of work and 8 hours of sleep, that leaves 8 hours of free time each day. Take out 3-5 hours to run errands, eat, take care of kids, etc. and that only leaves 3-5 hours of free time every day and many of us don’t even get that. Imagine the time for those of us that work way more than 8 hours per day (not to mention transportation to and from work. We deprive ourselves of sleep to get things done or we miss out on important things like family, etc. This is sad especially when you do something that you know you don’t really don’t want do but are just doing it to get by. Robert Kiyosaki Calls this the “rat race” in his book “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. I can’t speak for you but I feel like there has to be a different way to live my life you know?
I’m working on a few writings about how to go about living your dreams. I obviously haven’t mastered this subject yet but I’m confident that I’m well on my way. In the meantime I want to encourage those that I’m lucky to be in contact with to keep their heads up. If you’re reading this then I’m talking to YOU!
So as I stated earlier take some time this week to think about what you would really like to do with your life and what it would take to get there. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE!!!
Enjoy your week Fam!
