Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen was born September 23, 1949…
Which means he’ll be 60 next week…can you believe it?!!
Yep, Bruce Springsteen, a.k.a. “The Boss”, is turning 60.
60 years YOUNG that would be.
So, how does he keep his youthful energy?
I hear he’s a bit of an exercise fanatic…that certainly helps.
I have also heard that he eats well…that helps too.
Oh yeah, he has regular visits with his therapist…he mentioned this in a
TV interview a few years ago… he said it was one of the most favorite times of the week for him.
(Thanks, Bruce, we can use all the positive PR we can get!)
That must also help somewhat.
What else keeps Bruce young?
How about this: Living in his Passion and Purpose.
I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him live 5 times and had the same experience every time:
I felt like he was playing the whole concert just for me.
No, that doesn’t mean I’m psychotic…it DOES mean, however, that he gives it all away
every time he steps out on the stage…and into the studio…and every time he picks up his guitar…
or picks up a piece of paper to let his muse loose to create more powerfully poetic lyrics.
You know where I’m going, don’t you?!!
Yes, I’m about to ask you a very challenging question.
Some of you will step up and some of you will step away.
Some of you will stop reading and some of you will read more intently.
Which are you?
Bruce is truly a MVP living a MVP life….
A Most Valuable Person with a Mission, a Vision and Purpose.
MVP times 2!
Yes, what about you – figured out your MVP yet?
(That was THE question!!)
Without a Mission, a Vision or Purpose, life is most often controlled by external events,
other people and circumstances.
People who live this way feel like victims or martyrs… they have difficulty even
understanding the concept of Passion and Purpose.
Can’t give it all away if you haven’t figured out what to give away!
Yes, Bruce lives, writes, creates and plays with unlimited Passion and Purpose.
He gives it all away every day…and every night.
Maybe you’re not a Bruce fan like I am, but there is someone that you look up to
who shows up with this level of energy, enthusiasm and excitement.
Whoever it is, I can assure you that they too live the MVP life.
And if you’re not there yet, I’ve got Good News for you:
Life is patient and abundant.
Patient because you can start whenever you like… there always enough time.
Here’s a real life example for you:
Remember Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame?
Well, in 1956, at the age of 66, he was broke. He was living off of Social Security at that time.
With only Passion and Enthusiasm for his chicken recipe, he had over 400 chicken “franchises” by 1960.
He sold out and retired in 1964. And then gave much of his profit away to charities and adopted 78 foreign orphans.
How cool is that?!!
Now there’s someone with a MVP life…yes??!!
Life was patient AND incredibly abundant for The Colonel.
Okay, now it’s your turn…if you’re still not quite living the MVP life, then it’s time to pick up
your copy of Marry YourSelf First! (AND the Companion Workbook!) and get started now.
Don’t have your own copy yet?
I’ve outlined all the reasons for you to Marry YourSelf First!
AND because MY MVP is to help you discover your MVP!
How cool is that?!!
So…Life is waiting for you!
Want a kick-start on the fast-track?
Have a great weekend!
A great MVP weekend!
