Each new day offers you countless opportunities to achieve, to thrive and to live life on your terms. However, its what you do with these precious opportunities that determine how far you will go and high high you will fly.
You can choose to live life to its fullest where fun and excitement is the name of the game or you can settle for a dull, boring, run of the mill existence where you barely scrape by. Since you and you alone get to do the choosing, why in the world would you ever choose the later?
A winner could only make one choice and that would be to play the game of life for keeps. We were blessed with a winner's mindset that tells us we can have and achieve anything that we want in life when we show the will to get it done. Unfortunately, some would-be winners see life as a game of keep away where other people get to have and keep what these would-be winners have always wanted.
Living is about winning. You are about winning. You should resolutely focus on being positive throughout the day when you arise in the morning, during the day and when you go to bed at night. This constant focus and attention on positive thoughts, words and deeds will pay positive dividends. Hey, wouldn't you much rather live a playing for keeps lifestyle dominated with positive beliefs and positive actions than settle for a life of keep away?
Life affords each of us an ongoing opportunity to live the lives we have dreamed about and truly desire. Even if we have made the wrong choices for so very long, we can choose a life time committed to excellence right here and right now. Its time for all of us to play the game of life the way we were born to do so. We need to play hard, play by the rules, play to win and for goodness sakes - play it for keeps!
