In a world so focused on what other people have, or on what other people expect us to do, what if we instead focus on who we are while making sure the person we see in the mirror is someone we are proud to be?
In sports, a player's legacy is often cemented by incredible stats, broken records and championships. The truly great are even enshrined in their sport's Hall of Fame. Fans of all ages will walk the halls of those Hall of Fame buildings and be reminded of their greatness for years to come. And what about the rest of us? Is it really about what we do that defines a meaningful legacy, or is it more about what we spent our time being and becoming throughout our lives? Or how we've consistently shown up and been of service to others? Let's find out...
How often do we experience an inner turmoil about how to be and react in certain situations, conversations or in life? Why is it that we let the negativity, anger, frustration and ego take over and, at times, define who we are in the moment... I would guess that results in us showing up as a person we really don't want to be. Yet we continue to fuel that anger, negativity and fear... we continue to feed it. But to what end? It is my wish that today's post helps us to all stop and think about the choices we have, the decisions we make, and who we truly want to be.
As we aspire to do and become more, we will inevitably have more and more people relying on and looking to us to perform, deliver, inspire and lead. Therefore, if we are to serve those that rely on us to perform our very best, then we must be selfish at times to make sure we are prioritizing our own body, mind, and spirit - we need to ensure our Inner Athlete is prepared and primed to play at its best.
