Hey Team!

Hope your week is off to a great start! 

I got hit with a cold this week... since I am unable to comprehend that summer is already over!

I will survive... Vitamin C, Tea, and some rest... good as new by Friday!

In my new book, Habits of a Champion, in one of the chapters I discussed Sheep and Lions....

What is the difference between the two and what does that have to do with YOU!

Simply put... our personalities can either take on that of a Sheep (relaxed, passive, not aggressive).... or that of a Lion (hungry, attack mode, chasing after what they want).....

Each of us is wired differently....

Are you a Sheep most of the time?

Or, are you a Lion most of the time?

You gotta know....

You must know what your innate personality is... then honor that....

When a sheep tries to become a lion... it just does not feel right...

And, when a lion tries to become a sheep... it just does not feel right...

So.. it is important to know who you are....

And stay with that...

Now.. I am going to throw you for a loop...

Every sheep has lion tendencies...

And, every lion has sheep tendencies...

In certain situations!

Honor that.

When a sheep is in a situation they know they can dominate.. you will see their lion come out...

When a lion is "out of energy"... you will often see their sheep come out...

What is my point?

Do not ever force your personality to change and become something it is not designed to be.....

There are many people we come across each day, pretending to be something they are not....

You may lead some of these folks...

They may work for you... or play for you...

You may have been one of those people...

Either way... stay true to yourself... and realize... if you are not being true to yourself.. you will spend a life time "trying to find yourself, your passion, and everything in between"....

For those that are confused about what they "want" in and out of life...

It comes down to knowing who  you are... and never trying to be anything else!
