Have you ever seen someone on the street or TV and knew if you met you’d be great friends? I’m pretty sure Lily from How I Met Your Mother would be my best friend. Everything she says makes me laugh. Love her.
The other day I stumbled on YouTube clip from a guy reviewing the Fetterman crutches I lust over. You might have seen the link on my blog Facebook page. His name is Josh Sundquist and I thought he was a funny, one-legged dude. Naturally, this led me to Google him and I found that he is much more…a cancer survivor, author, Paralympic ski racer, motivational speaker and avid YouTuber. He’s been featured on the back of Doritos bags nationwide. I love chips. I’m confident this guy would be my best friend too.
His message is One more thing. One more time. As I like to imagine, a fellow acronym lover, he coins it as 1mt1mt. In his exact words, it means doing one more thing than what you feel like doing, because successful people do one more thing than what they want to do. One more thing than what is considered normal or average, because an average effort gives you an average result. One more thing than what the competition is willing to do, because sometimes the difference between 1st and 2nd place is just one more thing. One more thing than what you expected or planned on doing, because the road to any worthwhile objective will always have a few unexpected speed bumps. One more thing than what is safe, easy or comfortable, because often what we want lies on the other side of what we fear.
Ahhh….I love it.
His YouTube channel is full of videos that crack me up and others that renewed my perspective on life. I have considered stalking him until he signs my blog Guest Book, I’ll keep ya posted. For now I hope you check him out too.
