Champions

General George S. Patton once said that a good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan next week. A sense of urgency is a trait of champions. They have an inner burn that won't allow them to waste time or miss an opportunity.

Champions know there are no 'throw away' days; that today is not a dress rehearsal for something bigger and better in the future.

Champions go to work each day to make things happen: not to watch them happen or at the end of the day to wonder, "what happened?"

Champions don't 'pace themselves' at work. They know they're not being paid to budget their efforts. They bring it all and they bring it every day. This helps them get more from life as well. The same urgency to make things happen at work carries over into their personal lives and propels them to discover their fullest potential.

Champions don't "stick their toes in": they take the plunge.
They don't just discuss: they decide.
They won't simply study the race: they join the race and more often than not, end up leading the pack!
Get up and take action!
At least then you might stumble on to something. I don't know of anyone who ever stumbled onto something sitting down!

Win The Day - Focus on Each Step

I don't know about you, but there are some times when I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing.
Am I doing the right things?
Am I investing my time in the right places?
Do I have any idea where I'm actually going?

Thankfully, I came across this verse today that helped put my mind at ease.

A person's steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand their own way?
Proverbs 20:24

One of the best men I've ever known coined a slogan that captures this idea perfectly. WIN THE DAY!
If we do that EVERY day, then we don't need to worry about how the future will turn out. God's already got a plan for that.
Thanks for still positively influencing my life Daryn.
Miss you DA. Thank you Becky for carrying on this message.

6 Habits that have helped us get fitter both mentally and physically, and will help you too

Do you ever feel like you're doing all the right things to get fitter & healthy, yet you just aren't getting results as fast as you thought you would?⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Yeah, we've all been there. While you should never expect to magically get fit the second you start working out and eating healthier, you have to always keep in mind that getting fit goes beyond just losing weight...it’s about having a healthy body and mind!⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Here are six habits that have helped us get fitter both mentally and physically, and will help you too:⠀⠀
🥕Be intuitive with your eating habits: eat when you are hungry, listen to the signals in your body and stop when your belly is full.⠀⠀
😴Get more sleep:get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night. Sleep is a HUGE key to fitness success. The lack of it, sabotages gym time, makes you crave more food, and your body ends up storing fat in all the wrong places. ⠀⠀
💪🏼Make exercise a habit: Aim to workout 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes. Include both cardio and weights. Full-body exercises like squats, burpees, push ups and triceps work like a charm.⠀⠀
😰Reduce Stress: take some time every day to stop and smell the roses. Making sure you take time to relax, meditate and do the things you love will help you tremendously.⠀⠀
💕Build healthy relationships: healthy relationships mean a stronger heart and body...literally. Many studies have shown that. Make sure you are surrounded with people that love you and motivate you.⠀⠀
🙅🏻‍♀️Learn to say "no": the ability to say ‘no’ really reflects that you are in the driver’s seat of your own life. Don’t waste time doing things you do not want to do. Take care of yourself first, and make yourself a priority.
