During this time of year, most of us take time to reflect upon where we are in life. We compare ourselves to our friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc…and most of the time we are not satisfied with the results. The contentment we are looking for seems so elusive, in it’s place are frustration, anger, doubt, worry, and fear.
Good or bad we, live the life we deserve. John Wooden, perhaps the best basketball coach of all time, said it best, “Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but what you should have accomplished with your ability.”
We are all guilty of compromising and settling for less than what is best for us: eating fast food, buying crap we don’t need on credit, or wasting good money going to see Twilight. The choices and decisions you’ve made got you here. What are you going to do different?
Mark Twain said, “I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is nobody knows what they want.” It all starts with knowing what you want.
What do you want your life to mean? What do you stand for? What gets you up in the morning? Take the time to examine what is really important to you. Start changing the choices you make to fit the vision you have for your future.
Your life is either a BOLD STATEMENT or a faint whisper….
See you on the mat,
