Monday Morning Motivation – Awe

By: Curt Stowers

Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day. Today we discuss awe!

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


Some thoughts:

  • In 1900 there were less than 10,000 cars registered in the US. Today there are over 200 MILLION vehicles registered in the US. Absolutely amazing.
  • The earth is rotating at approximately 1,000 miles per hour.
  • We are made up of 15 trillion cells.
  • There are 1 billion trillion stars in the observable universe.

And with all of this—and so much more—things just “happen” in life, and it all just “works.” The complexity of our existence is beyond comprehension—at least to me. Worse still, I rarely even think about the amazing nature of our existence. I just take it for granted.

I would argue that we take way too many things for granted, and, in so doing, we greatly under-appreciate the lives we have been blessed with. It is well worth the time—for each and every one of us—to step back and reflect on how amazing it is that we are able to enjoy the life that we do.

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • What are you in awe of in your life?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning 

Have a great week!



About MMM: Each week I publish “Monday Morning Motivation” in the hopes that at least one person will find a bit of inspiration and that this inspiration will have a positive impact on their life. My motivation comes from experiences, reading, sermons, and discussions.
