I look forward to seeing all our athletes tonight at our monthly Monday Night Football Event starting at 6PM and ending at 8PM. We will begin with conditioning so please bring your cleats tonight. Don't forget we will also have dinner for you tonight as well so please bring $5. Can't wait to go to work tonight and Play as One!
In closing, I was thinking about Thanksgiving and I read this quote last week “As a team, we made a conscious effort and commitment that we would not focus on what we DON’T have. Rather, we were going to focus on what we DO have. Once we began focusing on what we had, we realized we had the right people so we had everything we needed to start changing the culture.”What a simple yet profound statement. As teammates, families and coaches if we can apply this truth to our lives it will profoundly change our perspective. This change in perspective will ultimately change our trajectory, but it all starts with what we see. We tend to see what we are looking for. Are we focused on what we DO have? Or are we focused on what we DON’T have?
How about you? Is your vision blurred like mine was when I was locked in on what I didn’t have? Is your tank empty and do you feel like you are running on fumes? If so, perhaps it’s time to put on a new lens.
Here’s the deal. What we see is what we pursue. In many ways, our vision IS our future. Hope is tied to our preferred vision of the future. It’s function is to keep our present reality open to a future possibility. As leaders, it’s important to always be casting a hopeful vision for those we lead, but it starts with what we see in the present.
The author Wes Simmons nailed it on the head with this and like I've said "When there is hope in the future, there is power in the present." We have a lot to be thankful for... we have each other!
