My Granddaddy once told me that when everyday is as good as a Friday, then you’ll be finally living!

Once again, I think my Granddaddy was on to something here. How many of us dread Monday mornings? How many of us are looking for the weekend by Wednesdays? How many of us can feel the excitement in the air come late Friday afternoon?

I imagine most of us can relate to the above scenarios. The sad thing is that most of us are just going through the motions until Friday afternoon. We’re wasting a lot of time and are only half-awake for the majority of our week, and thus, the majority of our life.

Can you feel the excitement in the air on a Friday afternoon. Now grab that feeling and hold it tight. Keep that feeling with you everyday of the week, and every moment of your life.

If you can capture and live even a little bit of this feeling, then you’ll finally be living the life you were meant to live.

Live everyday, as if it were a Friday!

Now, please share how you plan to use the success secret of Fridays.


Thanks for your time,


Daniel Blanchard
