What is a lifetime of living your dreams worth to you?

July 26, 2003.

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
William Faulkner

In life, there are record breakers and there are broken record types. The record breakers are those individuals who seek to do a little better with each passing day, breaking one record after another in the process. These individuals set lofty goals for themselves and then set out to achieve them. They expect to succeed and as a result, they rarely disappoint themselves.

On the other side of the equation are those folks who sound like a broken record, constantly moaning and groaning about the rotten hand they’ve been dealt in life. Rather than get busy setting some records for themselves, they just play the same old hum-drum song over and over again. The only records they ever set for themselves are those of a dubious nature — records for futility and opportunity squandered.

“Adversity causes some men to break, others to break records.”
William A. Ward

Have you ever noticed how the top achieving champions always seem to thrive under pressure, becoming stronger and increasingly more focused as the tension mounts? Rather than wilting under the weight of the moment, they crank it up a notch or two — enthusiastically looking for a way under, around or through any adversity placed in their paths.

As crazy as it may seem, they absolutely love the feeling of staring down adversity and coming out on top. As far as these power performers are concerned, it just doesn’t get any better than coming through in the clutch, especially when the heat is on and the chips are down. Since records are made to be broken, they believe they are the ones destined to break them.

“I do the very best I know how — the very best I can.”
Abraham Lincoln

Why should you ever settle for less than your very best; less than you’re capable of doing, achieving and accomplishing in your life? You shouldn’t and you won’t the minute you start making excellence your calling card.

By striving to do the very best you can each and every day, you set the wheels of success in motion. Powerful wheels that can get your life moving in the right direction, that can take you anywhere you desire. As noted basketball coach Pat Riley said, “Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better.” And doing better than the day before is the name of the game.

“Our business in life is not to get ahead of others, but to get ahead of ourselves — to break our own records, to outstrip our yesterday by our today.”
Stewart B. Johnson

Sooner or later, even the mightiest of records eventually get toppled. There will always be a better, smarter and faster way to do virtually everything we do. Why sit around and play that old pitiful, pathetic sorry sounding broken record when you can instead choose to zoom to the top — breaking one personal record after another along the way?

Ferdinand Foch said “the most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.” When you consistently improve on your past performance, constantly looking for ways to best your previous efforts, you’ll set yourself ablaze with passion, purpose and a new found enthusiasm for living.

Best of all, you’ll be poised for a record breaking performance.

The Bottom Line: It’s time to set the record straight — today can be a record setting day.
