Make Sure Your Dash Means Something…

by AJ Mihrzad on

I’m here cooling down on a bike in my gym after crushing a brutal workout. My mind feels alert from from all the adrenaline. I have a look on my face like I just got laid last. I’m loving the euphoric high from the rush of endorphins. It just struck me that have strange affliction that I’ve been dealing with lately…

There’s a force that compels me to wake up every day and give my absolute best in everything I do.

It opens up my mind to people, places and possibilities that will help me improve the world. It makes me work when I don’t feel like doing shit.

It forces me to constantly seek more effective ways maximize my unique abilities. I have an urge make the most of every waking moment.

It makes me Fearless. I take risks knowing that I may fail, but I never lose; that money goes towards my education.

I learn more from my failures than I would from an Ivy League school in existence. It teaches me to persist despite fear.

Money is a by product of the value I create.

If I lose money, all I have to do is help more people. With this mindset I’ll never go broke.

Some days I’m on top of the world, while others I’m in the depths of hell, but that’s a part of the game.

The game I chose to play.

The greatest feeling is just to be put anywhere on the planet and to be able create something that helps others.

All I have to do is generate value that solves problems and takes away pain. I’m a free spirit that can’t be bound by a 9 to 5 schedule.

There ain’t nothing wrong with a 9-5, but a wise man once said…

’’9 to 5 is how you survive, and I ain’t trying to survive. I’m trying to live it to the limit and I Love it a lot’’


The life of an creator is not for everyone, just like the life of a 9 to 5’er is not for me.

I’d feel useless if I had to stop working at dusk to sit on my couch with my hand in my pants ala Al Bundy.

I can’t be contained boundaries. I make my own rules.

Some nights I stay up until 3am pursuing my passion even though I have to get up two hours later.

Do I complain? Do I bitch? Do I moan?

Hell NO!

I live like this to make a positive impact on society. I want to solve as many problems as I can.

The better I become, the more problems get solved.

My purpose is simple, leave this world better off than before I came into it. To leave a legacy that outlives me.

We all die one day with a dash on our tombstone between the day we were born and the day we die.

Make sure your dash means something baby!
