Sometimes we need to break away from the routines and our 'normal' processes. Sometimes we need to escape to new places and locations to find inspiration and rev up our mind to new perspectives, insights and opportunities for massive growth. Sometimes we need to get away and think bigger.
We live in a world of constant change. Change which creates a growing number of opportunities and a wide array of challenges. Living in this world of constant change makes it imperative that we are able to tell the difference between what we can and can't control. If we continue to try and control all the variables, we will be doomed to frustration, setbacks and less than desired results. So how can we do things differently?
When it all comes down to the last play and everything is on the line, who are you going to give the ball to? You give the ball to the guy or gal that excels and plays their absolute best when the stakes are highest - the one that thrives on the biggest stage and isn't afraid to put themselves out there no matter the result. You give the ball to a winner... because winners win.
What does the future hold for you? What does the future hold for any of us? Will it be filled with memories of great accomplishments, experiences and realized goals, or will it be filled with regret for not doing the things that truly mattered? Since we don't really know what the future has in store for us, perhaps the more appropriate question is what do we believe that we can do, be and become in the future? So, what do you think? Are you a future legend?
It's one thing to to acquire all the wealth, prestige, success, accolades, etc. - people do that all the time. However, what really stands out - what really creates a lasting impact, is when we give back... when we make a contribution in the lives of those around us.
