Thoughts for the New Year
As we say goodbye to the old year and enter a new year, I encourage everyone to live each day like it's your last. We tend to take our everyday existence for granted -- until we hear of a loved one, a friend or a colleague who died way too early.
Don't keep putting off your dreams to some day down the road -- that day will never come and you will look back later in life wondering why you never got around to it.
Don't be afraid to lose (and lose BIG). It's when you have something at stake that you perform your best. Without someone being willing to lose big, we wouldn't have many of the constitutional protections we tend to take for granted.
Remember, it's okay to show vulnerability. Letting go of your fear gives you permission to excel.
