Living like it’s your last day

Last Tuesday I had the good fortune of seeing an incredible motivational speaker! Amongst many remarkable things he shared, this stuck out … and everyone I’ve shared it with so far, has loved it.

He said: “Its not about how many breaths you take, its about how many moments take your breath away.”

What does this quote mean to you? What moments take your breath away?

This speaker then went on to say, “you owe it to yourself to have at least one breath taking moment everyday”. This struck a really deep chord with me. Two days before, I cycled 15kms up and back from the Miette Hot Springs. The whole adventure was breath taking! My friend Katie can attest to this experience for me, because I was yelled like an uninhibited child kid at least 5 times along the way. The beyond human feeling of tearing down a hill @ 50kms/hour, in one of the most beautiful places in the world does that to me!

What about you? What’s your inspiration? What’s your breath taking moment today?

Just like the speaker said – “you owe it to yourself to have at least one breath taking moment everyday”. I challenge YOU to take on that challenge too! It’s different for everyone, so do something that matters for you.

Let me know how you make out. My email is kyle@kmaxent.com … email me at any time!
