Get Back in the Game

Throughout our lives we are all going to be knocked down. It will always be easier to stay on the sideline.  It takes courage, resilience, strong desire and an internal fire to step over that line and return to the field. Getting knocked down is part of life - it's part of the game - and when we get knocked down there is only one voice in our head that we should listen to. It's the one that's telling us to "Get Back in the Game!"

When Will “Someday” be Today?

We all have big dreams and aspirations to do great things. And yet, how often do we convince ourselves that "today" is just not the right day to take action?  Someday, but not today. How does putting these things off serve us? And what if someday never comes?

What do you control?

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?

Don’t be a sucker!

All it takes is one cave person or energy vampire to create an exponentially negative impact on your team or organization. The reality, is that these people are going to show up in our lives one way or another. It's what we do after they show up that matters - will we be sucked into their negativity spiral, or will we rise above and ensure our positivity, drive and vision for the future remains intact?

Interrupt Your Story & Write a New Future

"I will never make the team." "I'm not smart enough." "I will never get the job." "I'll never lose the weight." Have any versions of these stories ever found their way into your mind? Do you ever catch yourself throughout the day putting yourself down - whether saying the words out loud or reciting them internally? These stories entrench themselves in our mind and look for every opportunity to prove to us why they are right. I'm here to tell you that they are dead wrong - but only if we take the action to interrupt those stories, and put in the work to write new ones. We are the authors of the stories that go on between our ears, so lets get's writing (or re-writing)!

Learn from the low points

The reality is that when things are great - when we are winning, receiving the accolades, moving forward, getting promoted, etc. - we aren't learning AS MUCH as when the proverbial shit hits the fan.  The low points in our lives give us the opportunity to learn, grow, and become a better version of ourselves - if we choose to listen and learn.
