Awaken Your Day - Aug 4, Courage to Try

"It is better to be a 'used to be' than a 'never was' "
- Hines Ward, Pittsburgh Steelers, comment take from Barbara Walters show with Randy Pouche, "The Last Lecture - A Celebration of Life.

Mr. Ward may not be the original voice of this statement, but this is where I heard it this time around. This whole comment and the message behind it can be intertwined with so many moments we encounter in this life.

Be it in the dedicated pursuit of goals and dreams that we discuss here so often ( do not live life wondering What If? ) , or in direct reference to something we let slip from our lives that we 'used' to do.

I know I could easily go off unnecessarily over explaining this one... so for a Monday - just take the Opportunity to consider what images this statement creates for you. Think about some of the things you used to do, that still have value for having done them in your life. Reflect on the achievements that they are and, in some cases - consider what is stopping you from ...

"I haven't thrown a baseball in years..."
"I quit drawing when I ..."
"I haven't spent much time with my son ..."
"You know, I used to ... "

Opportunity Monday - lets you celebrate the courage to have done the Used To's - and to lace up that courage again for modern day 'Can I's ' .

The only thing stopping us ... is us. As some of my mentor's have put it, "Don't let the Start Stop You."

Good Morning - and good living.
