Monday Morning Musing: Why You Shouldn’t Justify Your Dreams

Good Morning & Happy Monday!

I was perusing around social media (what’s new?) and came across Gary V’s Instagram. If you don’t know Gary V, he is a successful entrepreneur, social media god, and no bullshit hustler.

He posted a video where he said :

Don’t justify your dreams. Execute on them.

This simplistic two sentence mantra holds a tremendous amount of weight. People will tell you what you should and shouldn’t do with your own life. They will harness their parameters and ideas of success around you. They will suffocate you with a path you don’t belong on.

Here is the freedom: Don’t justify your dreams. Execute on them.

If I am justifying my dreams that make me feel happy and fulfilled than that person does not agree with how I am living my life. The only way to combat that insecurity of what others think of you and your plan and your career is to EXECUTE on them. Build them, reach fruition, become successful.

To combat insecurity, execute.

To combat fear, execute.

To combat the unknown, execute.

How do you tell if you are working towards your dream or even living in it? You go to bed on a Sunday night excited for your Monday’s work.

If Monday morning is exciting – which is the entire premise of this Monday Morning Musing column – than you are where you should be.

My week is all about executing: I am recording my second episode of PODCAST by scout which will feature artist Brittany Segal. We are going to be going on Instagram Live during the recording of the podcast at 3:15 pm today! You can catch that here

This episode is going to be filled with so many creative nuggets and will air officially on Thursday.

Other than my podcast, it is a busy work week filled with content creation and social media strategy.

Oh, I am also going to see my energy healer! Perhaps I should have her on the podcast?

Wherever you are this Monday morning – mentally, emotionally, physically – I hope you are executing on your dreams. Remember that in times of fear and doubt, execution is your best friend.

Don’t justify, execute.

I hope your week is as inspiring as you want it to be.
