Today’s message is especially dedicated to Jon Heitmann, assistant principal at Glen Ridge High School in New Jersey.

Do you know what I like about myself?

I love learning. I love improving. I have a growth mindset. I don’t feel that there is a limit as to how skilled I can get in sports, business, relationships or any area of life.

Yesterday I watched a DVD of a motivational speaker. I figure if I could get one thing out of it, to help me improve, it would be worth it. Though I didn’t feel that it was a particularly good program, I did walk away with one new thing and I also learned what not to do.

By watching videos like that, I know that I am not just in my job, I am into my job. I feel like I haven’t worked in years.

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Ed, but you’re different.”

Guess what? I’m not different. I wasn’t always like this. I used to hate reading. My grades were only average in high school. I failed out of college…twice.

But now I have found my passion and know my goals, so every day I do a little bit to get closer to those goals.

Do what you love and love what you do. Love learning and love improving. Become a little better every day. It doesn’t matter where you are, what matters is where you want to go.

You can do it…trust me, I know from experience.

Thanks for reading.
