I always see those ‘Thank god it’s Friday’ and ‘Oh no it’s Monday’ comments. I don’t know why, but I just don’t feel that way. Maybe because from the age of 18 Sundays consisted of tutoring the whole day. Those were the long days, the days without a car, the days I would walk to so many different houses, whether it’s raining or snowing, just trying to make a living, some pocket money, whatever you like to call it. Yup everyone has a story and that’s mine. So it was never ‘thank god it’s Friday’ if was more ‘time to get some work done!’
These small parts of my life have really changed my mentality. I don’t ever crave sitting in front of the TV and just being lazy. To be honest, I’m not going to lie, I have actually physically given it a go, to be lazy and have a relaxed day, but at the end of it, I feel super unproductive and crap.
I see each day as an opportunity for growth and productivity. I don’t crave for Fridays so I can just be lazy or dread Mondays because I have work. When you enjoy your job Monday is just another day. When you’re self-employed, every day is the same. There is no 9-5, there’s always thinking to do, planning to do, room for growth and improvement, the mind is explosive and full of ideas. Let creativity take over your mind and don’t limit yourself to a 9-5 job. It’s just a part of your life. It doesn’t define you. Entrepreneurs would rather work 80 hours for themselves than 40 hours for someone else. Why? Purely because of self contentment. The soul needs to be happy too.
All the little things you do on a daily basis builds you in different ways, so make those things different and unique and take something different away from them. Whether it’s something intellectually challenging, creative or something to help others such as charity work or teaching even. Build yourself as a person, especially if you’re in your 20s, now is the time. This time won’t come back, absorb all the good you can and enjoy life, enjoy your Mondays and make them count 🙂
