Welcome to #TheDailyYes. The idea is simple- we are sharing some of the quotes, phrases, and pearls of wisdom that have helped us throughout the years.
A few simple words can completely change the way a person thinks about things. A person’s success, self-worth, and impact on the world can be completely attributed to the way he or she thinks about things.

The last time doesn’t exist. It’s only this time. And everything is going to be different this time. There’s only now.Bill Murray
I hadn’t really thought about Bill Murray very much until a few months ago when Groundhog Day kept popping up and I got sucked in a few times. Then I saw him popping up at U of L basketball games and around our city. Which made me look into him a bit more. And I’ve got to say- I want to grow up to be like Bill Murray!
What does that mean, exactly? Well…rather than letting me muck it up, check out the trailer below and click here for the full documentary on Netflix when you get some time.
But the overall theme is the level of self-awareness, kindness, compassion, and humility that this hugely successful and recognizable celebrity presents in some of the most unexpected situations.
All with the simple goal of a joyful experience for the people that he encounters. Bill Murray lives a real, genuine life and he uses his celebrity to engage with people and do what they do, not what he wants them to do. It’s really cool! The full Netflix documentary, The Bill Murray Stories, shows very well the types of things that this human does.
Check it out. And then realize that we can all live in this manner.
Be like Bill Murray.
