Hi Team...

I wanted to write something special for you today...

There is so much information being spewed online today, that it is easy to fall into many traps.....

One of those traps, is the conscious or subconscious comparison trap....

Which can quickly lead to the question...

Am I doing this right?

This can be your work, your business, your leadership style, your workout, your nutrition....

Then what happens is you look to find solutions to problems that you may not even have...

Hear me out....

Just because somebody else is doing something one way, does not mean it is the only way.

It does not mean it is your way.

There are very few absolutes in this World.

SO, what does that mean to you?

You can do things your way, at your pace, the way you like to do things....

Now here is the catch....

You must be making progress.

If what you are doing is not giving you a result... well, then you just have to make an adjustment...

It can be just a minor tweak that gets you moving again....

But remember this: As long as you are moving forward, you are moving towards your goal. Therefore, you are winning.

I truly believe we all have a pace....

We all move at our own unique pace....

For some, they prefer to move slowly until "they get it"... then, they pick up the pace...

That is great.

For others, they prefer to work fast and often times run towards their problems, course correct, and then keep running hard again.

We are all different.

We are all unique.

Embrace it.

For so many years when I was younger I would look for "WHO" was doing it right and I would work to emulate them...

I would always end of up navigating away from my dream.... my goals.. my vision and built something that I was not truly connected to.

I can remember when Lululemon first came out.. they were booming...

What did I do?

I built a gym using the same colors as their retail stores and clothing...

Soothing, calming, relaxing....

Now, I am not that person.

I am high intensity, go-get it, full of energy....

I built my own gym wrong...

Finally, I ditched those colors for reds, blacks, and charcoal...

A more edgy, high intensity look....

How many times have you given a piece of yourself away?

It happens easily and can really throw you off course....

I do not want you to experience that...

Go for gold by staying in your own lane... running or walking at your pace to get you where you want to go...

My friend Riley puts it like this: "Hit a single everyday.. figure out how to get on base. Then, do the same thing tomorrow. Do that everyday and you will have success over time."

Isn't that the goal?

Play the long game!

Play to win!
