This past weekend I surprised my wife with tickets to see Florida Georgia Line at the Hard Rock in Atlantic City. What an amazing show and night!
As I watched the show in amazement, I couldn't help but think about how much fun they looked like they were having. The energy, the passion, and the excitement they brought to the crowd was inspirational. I am sure my students feel the same way when I begin teaching!
I couldn't help but think about the risk they took to get to that pinnacle moment. It must have taken huge sacrifices, ups and downs (actually a great song by their opener Morgan Wallen), and an unwavering commitment and determination to make it all happen.
I am sure it started with a vision, stayed a live with hard work, and culminated with luck along the way. "The harder you work the luckier you get" is what my middle school baseball coach used to say!
That is what we all should be doing in our lives. Embracing our vision, working hard to make it happen, and getting lucky along the journey!
It's about doing whatever it takes to get to "Our Moment" on the stage of life.
(What theme song would you come out to?) Mine
Finding something that brings us to a moment of pure nirvana.
The problem is that everything else gets in the way of it all (bills, comfort, doubt, and probably the most common thing...FEAR)
"False Evidence Appearing Real!"
"The thing you want the most is on the other side of the fear."
I could go on and on with quotes about fear, however reciting quotes won't get you anywhere.
Believing, challenging yourself, and doing what the quotes say...will!
Take that small step, take that large leap, but no matter what keep taking moves towards what makes you feel every beat of your heart!
This summer go to a concert and get inspired as you roll into your own greatness!
