Eminem: Today’s Motivation

Today is August 1st. As promised, I jumped on the treadmill to begin my 30 minutes for 30 days routine. The first song that played on my iPhone got me so motivated that I knew it would be a good work out from the start. Sometimes there are just songs you want to play over and over during a certain time in your life. For me, Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” is one of them. It’s no surprise he celebrates having the highest Facebook likes as an artist with 60.1 million followers. Congrats Eminem! Thanks for the motivation I needed today!

Look, if you had, one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted, one moment
Would you capture it?
Or just let it slip, yo

As these words ran over and over in my head, I couldn’t help but remind myself that this is my one opportunity. This is my chance to get healthy. The perfect opportunity while I am still young to get a grip on my health before it diminishes completely. The chance to change my legacy before I have children so I can bring them into the world at a time when I feel full of life and fit enough to play and run with them. The chance to do something big for myself so I don’t have to look back on my life with regret.

You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

You can do anything you set your mind to, man

As these words played, I ran harder and harder. I cranked my music up, closed my eyes, and lost myself in the music. And in that moment, just like the song says, I truly felt that I could do anything I set my mind to!
