I got up thinking about the word: DEFENSE.
Defense. The opposite of Offense.
I wanted to ask you, "Do you play more offense? Or, more defense?"
Based on what I see and hear on a daily basis, there is a lot of defense being played.
Many are playing defense to protect themselves...
In some instances, it is good. Ex. Saving some money for a rainy day....
In most instances though, defense will kill your instincts.
It will flat line you, your creativity, your decision making, and your belief in yourself- which, will inhibit you from challenging yourself.
The World is conditioned to play defense though.
I mean after all, one of the most profitable business categories in the World is Insurance!
We pay all this cash for insurance- most of us going a full lifetime never even receiving any benefits from our on-time payments.
Don't be scared.
If most are playing defense- waiting for things to happen- more often more bad than good- if you are on the hunt, you have a legitimate chance to put points on the board.
That is how you generate real results in life..
Think about how many people are sitting at desks today just taking it...
They are accepting: This is my life...
Not this team.
Take a small risk...
You may fail, but that is the way to winning.
Deal with it.
Be ready for it.
That is what winners do. They get in the game.
That is what YOU DO.
