Your life is meant to be lived ALL IN.
It takes more energy to live a below average, or even a mediocre, life than it does to live a life full of incredible achievements.
He who lives a below average life chooses to constantly justify to others and himself why he has been treated unfairly. He becomes the victim.
She who lives an average life settles for an OK career, an OK partner, OK friends and has experienced year after year of OK memories and maybe, if she’s lucky, an OK week long vacation.
When things drift from OK she then has to fight and claw to get back to her safe place which happens to be right on the edge of below average.
Living to justify why you are the victim, living to ensure everything is safe and OK, and living without truly preparing for the curveballs life promises to throw takes far more energy than it does to go ALL IN on your life.
Don’t believe me?
Living All In
The person who goes ALL IN believes they can have it all.
Each morning serves as a reminder that today is full of possibility, hope and whimsy.
Every encounter with someone reveals a hidden lesson about life and a new exciting way in which to understand the world.
Relationships become a place of growth, encouragement and the richest moments in life.
Careers become about having an impact and casting vision rather than money and fame.
Money no longer becomes about tangible things but a fuel for intangible potential and generosity.
Great joy is realized in serving and providing for others, creating incredible experiences and blessing future generations.
Faith flows freely and hope realizes itself in a force far greater than themselves.
Living ALL IN brings you more energy each day than you could ever know what to do with.
That energy manifests itself in gratitude, joy, vision and anticipation of what’s to come.
The Magic Of More
Here’s a quote that I would encourage you to consider by looking around at the people in your life and asking, “who do I know who lives a below average, settles for mediocrity, or goes absolutely ALL IN?”
For to the one who has it, it will be given, and it will be increased.
But from the one who doesn’t, it will be taken, and it will be decreased.
Are you ready to live your life ALL IN?
Today, make a decision that you will take control of all the areas in your life you have; left to chance, filled with excuses or blamed someone else for.
Decide today that you are responsible for, and capable of, being someone who gets to have it all, blessing everyone around you as a direct result.
You were created to go ALL IN.
