While I don’t have a favorite sport or a favorite team, I do keep up with what’s happening in college football and also professional basketball, football, and baseball (my husband is a diehard Astros fan). I’m intrigued by people who are the best at what they do, not only in sports but business, entertainment, religion, and other areas. Not only in sports, but in all aspects of life, we need a great:
DEFENSE! I think football is a great analogy. The better the defense, not only will the other team not score, but your offense has more time on the field to score. The defense has to constantly be on the lookout for new formations, sneak plays, and fake handoffs.
The same is true in life. There are so many trying to score against us. They want us to buy into this idea, activity, or item. We have to be on the DEFENSE. If we want to score big time in the areas of true health and happiness, we have to be living well AWARE. What are we being sold? What are we buying into because it’s “in style” right now? Expensive specialty coffees loaded with calories, the #1 sitcom on TV, the latest _______ (you fill in the blank). How many of us bought jeans with holes in them! These companies do NOT care about our health and happiness. They want our time and money and pay big bucks in marketing campaigns to make sure we get THEIR message of what is in vogue, paying famous people to promote what they have to sell. I say: “It’s Hip to Be Square!” Dare to do it differently.
Let’s all make sure we have a great defensive approach when it comes to making decisions about what items we buy, what we view, what we do, who we hang with. Let’s ask ourselves: Is this going to improve or reduce my health and happiness? Make sure your defense is a set up for an amazing offense, allowing YOU to score in all areas of life.
It’s about Living WELL Aware!
I’m looking forward to presenting Thursday at 11am at Texas A&M in College Station at the General Services Complex as we discuss a key aspect of My Journey to Living WELL Aware: Your Mission Statement. It’s not only deciding who you are called to be but importantly who you are NOT!
