"Things turn out best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out." John Wooden
Each of us encounters all sorts of life changing moments throughout our lives, precious seconds where important decisions must be made, where decisive action must be taken. Moments of truth where what we do or don't do determine our direction and destiny.
In these crucial make or break moments, we must be ready to respond in half a heartbeat. We must be ready to turn on a dime. And turn up the heat. Or turn down the sound.
When it matters most, we must be willing to move with certainty. In the blink of an eye, we must be ready to move without hesitation or doubt. With the chips on the table and our fate hanging in the balance, we must be able to move with a steely resolve that refuses to lose.
And do whatever it takes to win.
"Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around." Henry David Thoreau
As strange as it seems, greatness is determined in a handful of moments; moments that make a difference, moments that define our character. Moments that make us who we are - and what we become; a select few fleeting moments in time.
Winners embrace these moments. They relish them. They LIVE for them.
When decisions need to be made, they want to make them. When action is required, they want to take it. They want to determine their fate. They want to be in charge of their lives. In fact, they don't just want it, they demand it.
"Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement." Henry Ford
When they make a mistake (and make no mistake, they make plenty of them), they get up. They get better. And they get going again... smarter, better and stronger than before. If things fail to turn out right the second or even third time around, they keep getting up. And keep getting better - and keep working until they get it right.
And so must you.
Winning isn't about winning all of the time. And success sure isn't about being successful every minute of the day. Truth be told, winning and success are more about being able to effectively deal with the defeat and difficulties you face daily.
It doesn't matter how hard you work; you're still going to lose on occasion. And, regardless of how much you try, you're still going to taste defeat. That doesn't make you a loser. Or any less successful. It just makes you a tougher, smarter and stronger winner.
When things look dark, look within. And you'll turn on the light.
When things go wrong, look inside. And you'll turn on the power.
And turn things around.
"We all walk in the dark. And each of us must learn to turn on his or her own light." Earl Nightingale
How many great moments have you turned down because you were afraid to act? How many tremendous opportunities have you turned away because you were too worried, too scared and too nervous to take a chance? And how many more are you willing to let slip away?
None, I hope.
It's your turn to make things happen. It's your turn to live life to the fullest. It's your turn to turn it on, turn it loose and turn things completely around.
It's time to turn the corner, turn the tide and make a turn for the better. When it counts, make sure you make it count.
And things will turn out all right.
The Bottom Line: It's your turn. So take it.
