Eighty percent of success


“Eighty percent of success is showing up.” – Woody Allen

True dat. If you don’t get in the game, you have no chance of winning. If you constantly sit on the sidelines, you will only ever be a spectator, and never a player.

I don’t need to add more explanation to this, but I will issue a challenge: In what areas of your life are YOU being a spectator, instead of a player? [1]

If you’re not playing, you’re watching. And guess what? It’s your LIFE you’re watching.

So. If you’re not playing yet, when will you start? What ACTION will you take? When will you get your bright red Converse sneakers on, ignite some passion, and get MOVING?

<dismounting from soapbox>

Enjoy your day, and remember to wear bright red shoes, like me.

With love,

1. I should point out, here, that I specifically do NOT mean ‘player’ in the hip-hop sense of … ahem… ‘playaaaaa’. Instead, I mean someone participating actively in the game. That’s all.
