When you go to a sporting event held in a stadium you’ll find three kinds of people there. Those on the field playing the game. Those in the stands watching. Others at the concession stand ordering some food. When you look at what they are doing, they equate to those that 1) Make things happen (on the field), 2) Watch things happen (in the stands), and 3) Wonder what happened (at the concession). So which one are you?
The players on the field didn’t get there by accident. They just didn’t happen to wander into the stadium and decide to play. The same can be said of those in the stands watching and those at the concession. The same analogy can be used to look at your life. You are where you are – because of intent. You have the same amount of time, the same basic resources, the same opportunity, as most people around you. If you are making things happen, that was a choice. If you are watching things happen, that was also a choice. And yes, being the bearer of bad news, if you are wondering what happened. Ditto. Your choice.
If you want to make things happen, you have to be intentional about it. So… what are your goals, and how are you going to get there. Don’t wait….life happens fast.
Here is a great video that I just love. Don’t blink!
