Get Burned

“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.” – Vince Lombardi

If given the choice between playing it safe and not caring or going full throttle and getting burned, choose getting burned. There have been a few steep mountains lately that echo “give up, take the easy road.”  But I would rather pursue the ascent rather than be resigned to the safe valley of discontent.

Give a damn, do your best and let the chips fall where they may. Never resign yourself to mediocre or good enough. All in and then let it go. Full effort and a positive attitude will carry you to your destiny. Anything less isn’t worthy of your pursuit. Our disappointments are from coming up short of our potential, not from trying too hard. Don’t be a sucker, but don’t suck either.

Loyalty, commitment, passion, sweat – they still matter. Get in the game.
