Order Off Menu

Happy Monday!

When you’re born, you’re given one menu to order from. For good and bad, better and worse, you inherit your parent’s environment & behaviors.

Would you ever walk into an Italian restaurant and ordered a #14 Chicken Fried Rice?

No, that would be silly.

But I would argue when it comes to life, you shouldn’t narrow yourself to choose from only one menu. Order off menu. Choose the unusual, the non-standard–choose what interests you even if it doesn’t seem to interest anyone else.

Society is such that we are lead to believe that we are all in boxes, stuck within who you are at your current state (mentally, physically, emotionally) and limited to what is in front of you.

Screw that.

I encourage you to rip open the box and open yourself up to all that the world as to offer. Don’t needlessly restrict your choices and narrow your world.

If you’re reading this email — our “Monday m.e.l.t.” — then you know one of our core values here at m.e.l.t. is the growth mindset, which is the understanding that you are never stuck. That you can learn and do just about anything you want.

What do you want to learn?

Where do you want to travel?

What do you want to do?

Don’t worry if the answers seem too big and too far away, if it’s in your heart, it’s more than possible.

You don’t need to know exactly how – all you need to know is the very next thing you can do now then build off of that. Life is too short not to.

When all is said and done, regrets come from what we did not do.

These days, it seems as though we are busier then ever and there’s always some job to do.  And when there’s not a deadline to meet we find ourselves wasting time on our phones. I highly encourage you to take time away from your device and schedule time every week to be outside…there’s something about nature that helps us disconnect from “to-do” lists and technology and frees our mind.

Another great away to break out of your box is to travel. Start local; take a day trip and explore a place that you’ve never been to before.

Whatever you decide to do or don’t do, just remember YOU ARE NOT STUCK and you possess everything you could ever need to do whatever it is you want to do.
