One of the characteristics needed to be successful is having a short memory.
If you’ve watched enough football games, you would have heard this term many times about great quarterbacks.
All quarterbacks will make mistakes, creating interceptions, sacks and fumbles. But, the very next play could be a game winning touchdown throw.
The commentators will label these quarterbacks with short memories because they don’t dwell on the last play’s mishaps. Instead, they have enough confidence in themselves to pull out the winning play.
We all make mistakes on a daily basis with some more severe than others. It’s part of our maturity and life experiences. Sometimes, you have to shake off the dust and get back in the game of life.
I’m sure there are plenty of you still struggling to get your diet back in check from Thanksgiving holidays. Maybe you’re dealing with personal issues and you keep beating yourself up for not having control.
How about those of you who feel you’re giving this world everything you’ve got, but it seems to keep crashing down. It could be a job loss, bad relationships or any tragedy thinkable.
The good news is we are all born with the capability to conquer. It’s programmed into our DNA. You wouldn’t be alive today if someone in your ancestry didn’t dig deep to survive, and now, it’s your turn.
Take life’s challenges head on and forget yesterday’s defeats. Learn to turn defeats into opportunities, and let the experiences help you grow stronger.
When people try to take you down, laugh it off and keep your head high. Remember, you’re the best person you know.
Now, go score a touchdown and keep winning the day.
