Anyway, I found the perfect quote for a Sunday morning from Michael Jordan, who I got to meet in my Polaroid days. We hired him to shake hands with people in the booth at a PMA convention in Chicago one year and I was in charge of the booth. It's great when your heroes are exactly the way you hope they'll be. He's as nice as he is a great athlete.
I've lost almost 300 games; 26 times,
I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed.
I've failed over and over again in my life.
And that's why I succeed."
Stop looking for success as if you were on the Easter Egg hunt on the White House lawn. Learn to trust your inner voice and just don't give up the quest to be the best on whatever path you've chosen. Most important of all, remember to take a break when you need it. Give yourself at least one day a week where you just enjoy your family and friends and put work aside. Take the time to kick back and remember why you're working so hard and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Here's one more quote from motivational speaker, Ed Foreman...
“Life is primarily for laughing, loving, and living. It ain’t just for whining, worrying, and working!”
Wishing everybody a terrific Sunday and a day filled with nothing but smiles and enjoying the security of knowing that whatever path you're on, it's taking you some place different every day. And, as always, hug somebody special and hold it for eleven seconds. (Trust me, it makes a difference.)
