The Power of the Weekend

By

Are you doing what you want to this weekend?

Here it is.

It’s the weekend.

Saturday.

Are you doing everything that you want to do this weekend?

Are you spending it with friends that you really want to spend it with?

Are you going to be active—reading, going to the beach, going to the pool, hanging out?

Are you doing the things that are most important to you?

Or are you doing what a lot of people do: chasing the weekend.

A lot of people are just going out there and just chasing the weekend, hoping that they’ll meet people, hoping that they’ll connect, hoping that they’ll be in a social situation that will give them the results that they want.

But, the weekend is not about that.

If you do what you love in life, you’ll attract people into your life.

It really does work that simply. When you do what you love in life, you’ll actually attract people who are doing the same, exact thing, so you’ll have common things to talk about, and then it’ll be really simple to go get a date, because you’ll want to hang out with somebody who’s doing the things that you want to do.

That’s what the Power of the Weekend is all about. It enables you to go and do the things that you want to do, and it enables you to go and attract the people into your life, instead of just chasing.

You won’t find me on a weekend drinking with friends. I find that boring.

“Let’s go out and drink!”

Well, what if I’m not thirsty?

Why do I need to alter my head to go and have a good time? Why do I need to drink? Why do I need to go stand in a bar or a lounge and suck down a cocktail or two, when I really don’t like to talk to people who are drunk?

You get my point? The weekend is all about creating exactly what you want from your life.

I’d prefer to go to a juice bar. Hang out and go get some juice. Talk to people about being healthy.

I do what I love and that enables me to have conversations with people who are like-minded––people who are just like me in ways that I want them to be.

Here’s the deal: If you’re a smoker and a drinker, you’ll never be with someone who’s a non-smoker and a non-drinker, so for you, going out drinking, partying, is your cup of tea—you’ll be able to go meet somebody exactly like you.

If you’re a workout guy, and you go and you hike and go to the gym, you should be meeting women in those situations, because you enjoy doing that. You’ll never be comfortable with somebody who sits on her ass all day long and doesn’t work out. You’re not going to push her into a gym that she doesn’t want to be in, nor are you going to get her to hike up hills and mountains and everything else when she doesn’t want to do that.

So I want you to look at every social situation that you’re in this weekend and only do things that you love and then look around and start connecting with other people that are doing the exact same thing.

That is what the Power of the Weekend is all about.
