Today’s message is especially dedicated to Brittany Eckett. Happy Birthday to a softball great.
Most of us live a life of mediocrity.
We don’t like to get out of our comfort zones.
We fear change.
Well, guess what?
1. You don’t have to settle for mediocrity.
2. If you don’t get out of your comfort zone, you won’t get better.
3. Change is inevitable.
I recently listened to an interview with one of my favorite authors, Robin Sharma, who wrote “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” and more recently, “The Leader Who Had No Title.” In the interview, Sharma said something profound that stuck with me.
When we are born, we cry while the world rejoices. When we die, the world should be crying while we rejoice.
What do you want to have accomplished at the end of your life?
You can’t take your trophies with you. You can’t take your money with you. You can’t take your iPhone with you.
So what’s the purpose of life? To discover your gifts.
What’s the meaning of life? To give those gifts away.
Do you want to be comfortable, or do you want to be GREAT?
