Live Full

In Blog by Kyshoen Jarrett

Motivational Speaker, Les Brown mentioned in a speech that, “We must live full & die empty”! He continues to go in depth about giving this world all of who you are because each and every one of us are uniquely created and designed for a purpose that only YOU possess to give. I then began to ask myself what it meant to “Live full & die empty”. It allowed me to realize what ways we can give all of ourselves to those in our family, work space, and community. That’s by being consistent in our approach to life spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, and relationally. Daily reflection of the ‘downs’ and how we can improve as well as realizing how to keep/build momentum when there are ‘ups’. I personally call this “Man in the Mirror”.

I challenge you!


Every day when you wake up in the morning to prepare yourself for a daily grind and you look in the mirror, I want you to ask yourself what it means to “Live full & die empty”. Continue to apply those 5 Man in the Mirror points (Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Physical, Relational). When doing so, other questions will generate and influence more thoughts, visions, and dreams. Making you wonder what, why, and who you are even more.

"Challenge your mind, strive to be better and don't be satisfied with complacency."
Les Brown

I’ll start you off with some more thought-provoking questions:

Spiritual: At which level have I placed my faith? Does my faith come first or last?

Mental: What type of thoughts do I have throughout the day? Name both Positive & Negative.

Emotional: What type of space have I been in lately? Sad, happy, angry, proud, etc. .. Why?

Physical: Is what I am putting(food) or about to put into my body helping me move effectively to win the day?

Relational: Have I given all of my true self (Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Physical) to my family, friends, & co-workers considering all that I can control?
