Hey Team!

I was browsing my facebook feed this morning, and saw a post my father shared. He spent his career as a high school influencer.. (Teacher)... and musician at night.. rocking stages....

Now.. in addition to the above... he spends his time managing his facebook conversations and relationships of all those that share in his passions of music and education....

I always felt he should of taken stock out in the Company with the amount of time he spends on the application... haha...

But the post I saw this morning was about having 3-Choices in Life...

#1: Give Up

#2: Give In

#3: Give IT All You Got!

Now.. "give up" is a really interesting saying... because what I have realized in my own life is that some of the best decisions I have ever made were based on giving up when I knew deep down something was not going to work or was broken...

This goes for relationships, jobs, careers, businesses... and at times, people. 

Giving up is not always a bad thing....

We change as we grow... so strategically giving up is a good thing...

The issues start when we give up on things to quickly and never give them a chance... since certain "things" take time to develop....

Giving In. I find giving in to be the worst because often times people "give in" because they quit on themselves... on their dream... and on the expectations they set for themselves... 

Sad. Some people are filled with dreams and aspirations, they do not achieve them under their timelines or circumstances... and poof... they quit and join team "everybody else".... and their dreams are now memories... and "should have's.." 

Now.. as for "Give It All You Got"... that is the way to approach life... know that failure is a part of the game.... go ALL-IN on all you do.... 100%.. you will get hurt, you will fail, you will be sad... you will also have zero regrets, some successes, some tremendously gratifying moments... and those moments make it all worth it.

So, if you can learn when to give up and give it all you got in all that you do... you will realize the only time to "give in" is when you realize you are fighting for something that is not all that important....

Today... I encourage you to take a look at where you are going through the motions and either "give up" because you are not being served by that "thing"... and/or take your game to the next level by GIVING IT ALL YOU GOT!
