Why do high achievers take everything so serious?
We think of failure as the end, then we concern ourselves about it way too much.
Maybe we just stop. Maybe not forever but at least for today. Or maybe we just should start another time.
If we aren’t successful, chances are there’s a better plan that awaits. In the meantime, why be so serious?
Others probably don’t notice, or they’ve already forgotten about it – and we are still stressing and depleting our energy.
If it isn’t life threatening, let us stop, let go, regroup and be more frivolous today.
Finishers are leaders with the commitment, consistency and ability to “close the deal.”
What would be the best goal for this morning?
Start out by being excited about the day. If we aren’t excited about doing anything we have planned, why do it? If we have a choice, why not avoid commitments that don’t excite us?
If we are dreading a task or being in a certain situation, think hard about just saying no or finding a way to get out of it. If we don't have a choice, just choose to be excited because you don't have a choice anyway.
Let us be excited about everything today.
The sharpest people hold themselves to a higher standard. They seek not to be the same but to be better… to always take the high road.
They also seek to surround themselves with others that hold them to a higher standard. It doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing or not doing. We are the only ones that knows our potential. There’s also no need for excuses or need to explain to anyone else because we are the only ones we account for.
Expecting more from ourselves is all we can control.
Let us refuse to disappoint ourselves today.
