You are your choices
At the gym I overheard a personal trainer talking with his client. I could tell he was not happy with her progress that morning and he asked her what she had for breakfast. I couldn't hear what she answered but his next comment said it all "You are your choices".
I had not expected to get an aha moment at the gym! But, I did.
I was watching the sports channel on TV one day, and they showed a highlight from the Texas Rangers baseball game from the previous night. The game was in its fourteenth inning when Nelson Cruz, a Texas Ranger, hit a home run. Fourteen innings - what a long game - almost two-thirds as long as a normal game. Anyway, the reporter asked Nelson what his motivation was for hitting the home run. Nelson said, "It was starting to rain, and I was getting hungry!" I laughed out loud when I heard that! It got me thinking. Sounds like Nelson had just about enough of this long game and decided to do something about it. And what he decided was to finish the game by hitting the ball out of the ball park! (Excerpt from Confidence: Now is Your Time)
