When the bell rings, it’s go-time

March 15, 2017 by DAVID TEPERA
In the sport of boxing, when the bell rings, you better be ready. You must be 100 percent committed. There’s no time to relax and go at half-pace, otherwise you’ll get knocked out.
Boxers prepare themselves for each individual fight. They’ve studied the competition and put a strategy in place. You not only have to be prepared physically, but to outsmart your opponent as well.
Intelligence, along with brute force, will almost always dominate the competition.
 You can give the same example for all other sports. When the horn sounds or the whistle blows, it’s “go time.” All the long days and hours of practice should prepare an athlete to compete at their highest level.

Now, how about you? When your alarm goes off in the morning, are you ready to conquer the day? Or, do you hit the snooze button multiple times dreading to get up and go to work?

There are many of you who punch a clock at work to start a paycheck. Are you the employee you would hire? Are you known to be the most productive person in the building?

If you’re lazy, a complainer and full of excuses, everyone at your job knows it. No one likes to work with someone who doesn’t hold up their end of the load. Believe me, your days are numbered, which will give you more excuses to point the finger.

Keep in mind, once the day is over, you can’t re-ring that bell. What is done — is done.

The good news is, this happens to be your day to turn it around. You’ve recognized that slacking is not getting you anywhere and it’s time to step up your game.

You’re determined to bring more income and security to your family by working your way up the command chain.


You’ll arrive 15-30 minutes early to work to show enthusiasm. You’ll have the fastest pace with every responsible task required. You’ll leave 15 minutes after your supervisor. You’ll be the person who’s seen the most by everyone.

There’s a distant relative of mine named Patty who lost an executive position when her company had to downsize. Patty searched to find another job with same title and income, but nothing was available.

After a few months and money running low, she became desperate and was hired as a clerk at the local Wal-Mart. Patty continued her work ethic and felt fortunate to be employed.

That was two years ago, and now, Patty has worked her way up to accounting manager and is making some serious money.

Remember, today is a new day. The alarm has sounded, so get up because it’s “go time.”
