When You (Finally) Get Tired of Being a Loser.

That's where I'm at.

You come to a point in your life where you just decide that you have had enough of mediocrity.  Your own.

Not the world around you.  Not the nonsense on the television channel.  Not your work commitments, your colleagues, or your church group.

You decide that you demand more of you.

And it starts right now.

Not tomorrow when you wake up.  Not next week after you have time to think about it.  Right this very second.

It's time to act.

There is this tremendous sense of urgency that you feel.

For the first time, it feels like the world starts to slow down around you and you get the extra energy to ramp it into high gear for an extra lap or two.

You stop planning for what you want to be "when you grow up" and and start being the rock-star you always thought you could be.

It's the little things.

It's when we decide to:

  1. Whine a little less.
  2. Think of others a little more.
  3. Put in a little more effort.
  4. Be a little more courageous.
  5. Forgive a little faster.

It's an attitude more than anything.  Your problems don't magically disappear.  And, all the obstacles you faced earlier in the day are still there now.

"No special "fairy dust" gets sprinkled on the resistance that wants to grind you down and spit you out..."

But, what changes is......... everything!

Because the only thing that really mattered in the first place was your attitude.

That's the only thing that made you a loser in the first place.

So Go Do It.

I am not talking down to you.  I'm writing this for me.

It just feels like it's about that time to do something amazing.

What will you do today?
