This morning I walk in to my sitter and the kids watching ESPN. Somehow the Cavs came back from a 20 plus point deficit and beat the Pacers. I couldn't believe it because I remember watching some of the game last night emphatically saying aloud, “The Pacers aren't losing tonight!”
Something about moments like this remind me to be the best version of myself...everyday.
It reminds me that we make a conscious decision to never give up, never concede and stay relentless in your pursuit of whatever your goals may be. It's why I love sports. It's why I love life. There is always an opportunity. Our success is based on the small decisions that we make daily, not so much the big ones.
As I was training a client yesterday, we were talking about how no one wakes up and is 300lbs. Weight gain and loss is like life. It's a mirror of the small decisions that we make everyday from the exercise that we do to the foods that we eat. Success in anything works in that way.
Success is about becoming relentless in our pursuit of our goals and is as trivial as making daily decisions, that encourage us to be our best self.
My daughter was completing a series of questions for an assignment. The last question was simply tomorrow… When I posed this question to my clients many of them said in some version, “I will be a better version of myself.”
...and that's why I love the comeback. It reminds us that everyday, every moment, every second is an opportunity to make one more jumper, block one more shot, steal one more ball OR be the best version of yourself...and win!
