Are you going to approach today like a varsity player or a junior varsity player? You are a powerful person and you have the ability to choose how you will approach the day.
1. Anyone can play.
2. It's all for fun and exercise
3. Nothing counts.
4. No pressure.
1. Only the best can play.
2. Fun is called winning, exercise is how you win.
3. Everything counts and all stats are counted.
4. The pressure is on for each player to perform at the highest level.
No one else can live your life for you. So, when I say "only the best can play" I mean that only the best version of you can play. If you try and copy someone else and not be yourself you are not playing varsity.
This life is not all about what is fun. However, if you are someone who is willing to put the work in and win you will have fun. In order to do the work, you need to stay in shape, mentally, physically, spiritually.
Are you in shape?
We all want our life to matter. We want the small things we do every day to matter. The problem is our mistakes count just like our wins do. You can't play varsity and be perfect. If you want to play at the highest level of yourself you will fail. That is the only way you are going to get better.
One of the biggest problems in our culture today is passivity. The reason for it is complicated and effects every age group. The first step to pushing through this passivity is to realize that you can reject it. Today, you can choose to actively engage your life.
Accept the pressure of varsity play. You will win more than you lose and at the end of the day you will have no regrets.
