Winning the day
I love this concept of winning the day.
In sports we generally reference that players have an in-season and an off-season. In-season is when games are being played, and the off-season is when games aren’t being played.
For the 99.9% of us that aren’t professional athletes, we need to remind ourselves that there is no off-season.
The moment you wake up in the morning you are metaphorically stepping on to the field. The first quarter begins when you wake up and the game ends when you go to sleep. Every. Single. Day.
Are you approaching each day as if you are in-season?
Do you approach each day as an opportunity to win the day?
It’s time to get off the sidelines, and get in the game.
When I talk about winning the day, or getting in the game, I want to be clear that I’m not talking about joining the rat race or competing against everyone to reach the top of the metaphoric mountain. I’m talking about making sure that whatever path you choose to take in life, you approach each day as an opportunity to move forward on that path. Your path could be to climb the corporate ladder, or your path could be to stop climbing the corporate ladder and start climbing your own spiritual ladder. Your path could be one of creating profound joy internally regardless of outer circumstances, or your path could be to slow down and be as mindful as possible.
Whatever it may be for you, the point is, are you moving forward?
Our thoughts and actions can easily become so distracted that we end up having days go by seemingly on auto-pilot.
Living life with intention takes you out of auto-pilot, and the best way to make sure you are living with intention is to have a clear picture of the direction you are heading in your life.
Do you have a clear picture of what a winning day looks like?
View your life as if you are in-season. Clearly identify what a winning day looks like, then go out there and win! Every. Single. Day.
Make today a winning day,
