For some reason I have been struggling to read books lately. The struggle is real and I’m being totally honest and transparent. While i acknowledge the struggle I am not accepting defeat. It’s OK to see the problem.
It’s a choice to fix it. To fix issues, like the one that I am having with reading, you need to FIGHT for that is right for you and for the people that you influence.
Fight is my word for 2016.
While I haven’t read many books, (I freely admit I think I read maybe 3 or 4 books in 2015) I did read one that had an impact on me.
I got through this book because it was short with lots headlines and pictures. It may have been short but it’s message was super powerful.
In a nutshell the authors suggest you pic one word for your year and that is your focus. It took 3 months after I read the book for my word to be solidified in my mind.
A few days back I was frustrated by a project that I am working on. The frustrations got me to thinking about other frustrations. For a moment I felt a little sorry for myself. Then someone suggested that I change a goal that I had. “100 is a little out of reach. Let’s change the goal to 50…”
Like a lighting bolt this little red book came to mind and the word FIGHT popped into my head.
No. I am NOT going to lower my goal. I am not going to give up and give in. I am going to to FIGHT.
There are other areas of life where expectations aren’t being met. In that moment I determined that I would fight for those as well. I will fight till the end whether I win or lose…. I will FIGHT.
To me the message “fight” is one that I have complete control over. I can ALWAYS fight. I may not win but if I fight then I will always be a winner and I will set an example for my boys, my wife, my business partners, my clients and EVERY ONE of my fans and followers.
I will fight to be better in all areas of my life in 2016.
