Hey Team...

As many of you know... I am a huge fan of horse racing....

After spending time last week in Kentucky.... my passion was ignited!

And I was reminded of a quote given to me by Alex Rodriguez as it relates to him making decisions on the people he surrounded himself with.... and how he decides on who he going to invest in....

"D- I don't bet on horses.... I bet on Jockeys"

Wow.

I was speaking to a group of aspiring young business leaders a few nights ago... and I shared this quote with them.....

I let them know that they need to work to become the best Jockey they can be...

Too many people are relying on the horse...

Relying too much on their leaders... or their spouse... or their friends...

They are focusing too much on the externals...

They are allowing the external things to determine their internal environment...

And that can be destructive....

It can be a very limiting way to exist and live...

You are giving up control on the things that you are able to control... 

Which are your thoughts....

Your approach....

How you see things....

Don't wait to take action on your life....

Don't wait to take action on the outcomes you are desiring.... 

Time is precious...

We only get so much of it....

So, instead of hitting the side of the horse with the whip to get the horse moving... 

Find a way to hit your side to get yourself moving!

With action....

Anything can happen....

Without action....

Anything can also happen... but it is based on circumstance rather than decision... and the chances for you just "ending up" where you want to be... are very low.

Action wins.

Positive action on your goals wins.

Positive action on your life wins.

Go Get IT!

Let's GO!
