Why do you get out of bed in the morning? I mean, seriously. You could easily turn that alarm clock off and roll back over. Something must trigger you to get moving. Okay, I am not talking about the scientific part here. I am not talking about how the brain starts going and it makes everything else move. I am talking about, what gets you moving in the morning? What makes you want to go do your job? Or go to school? Or do whatever it is you do. What makes your heart desire to get you out of bed in the morning?
For some people it's simple. Money. They simply are driven by the pay check. And hey, that's fine! For other people, it’s for someone else. They are doing it because “Joe” wants/needs them to. Again, if that’s how you operate, kudos to you. And then there are the ones who wake up because they have a burning passion and love for what they do day to day. They get out of bed because it simply excites them to start their day.
I am one of the ones that wakes up in the morning because I love what I do.
"Okay," you are thinking. Then what is it that makes you love what you do day to day?
Answering that question is simple for me. I get to interact with people. Hear their stories, their successes, their failures, and their journey. I get to make a big deal about them! I get to shine the spotlight on them.
My boss created a podcast called “Leaderkast.” Yes, replace leader with pod and you got Leaderkast! Anyways, I have been helping him get it off the ground and launch our first Leaderkast episode! Well, this week that is all going to happen. And I am so flippin’ excited.
Leaderkast is designed to celebrate people’s successes and their journeys that lead them to where they are today. Now, how cool is that? Pretty cool if I do so say so myself.
So, yes, I get out of bed in the morning because I love what I do. I love to celebrate people. I love to hear the highs and the lows. I simply just love to hear people’s stories. But not only do I just love to hear these things, I love to share them with the world. People’s stories shouldn’t go unheard and I am so happy I am in people business.
