You’ve got to be in it to win it! (4/14/16)

Read that again☝☝☝

Already ON the dance floor!

They say “opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor” or, as the lottery people love to tell us, “you have to be in it to win it”.

Either way, you get the idea, you need to be “in the game” in order to win and achieve success.

There is no use sitting on the sidelines wishing, hoping and praying your dreams will come true.  Oh, I suppose that works every once in a while.

But, for most of us, you need to be IN THE GAME; getting slammed, pushed, rejected and sidelined pretty much on a daily basis.

Remember, success can’t reach you if you aren’t in the game to win!

Now, I am no sports enthusiast, but I know enough about professional players to know that in order for them to gain the success they have achieved, they must have practiced till they bled, and had their share of losses along the way.

And then they got back up and did it again!

You stay in the game, even if you feel like you are losing every time.  Because, eventually you will start to win.

Eventually, little by little.

Maybe not big wins at first but wins.

Little wins will start adding up..and every little win needs to be recognized and celebrated.

The road to success can be a long and lonely road and you will need the memory of those little wins on the days when there are no wins or even worse, a big loss or rejection!

Stay in the game. 

Work at it daily. 

Lose even better. 

Win even bigger. 

I can’t tell you when success will find you, but I can tell when it won’t.  When you decided the game was too hard and quit! 

Then I can pretty much guarantee you a success rate of failure at 100%.  And nobody wants that. 

And the next time you are doubting yourself, wondering if it’s all worth it. know this:

And you just remembered, you don’t like being like everyone else☝☝☝

Stay in the game and play to win!

Talk soon,

Patricia <3 always
