How Bad Do You Want It????

With Super Bowl Sunday behind us and the Baltimore Ravens earning the title, “World Champions”, I started thinking about why the Super Bowl has developed into such a big deal. Why do grown men playing a game cry on national television for the world to see? Why does the entire world drop what they are doing for five hours on a Sunday night to watch a football game? The only thing I could think of was that there has to be more to it than most realize.

What I discovered was, that God has created each of us with a desire for pursuing excellence and achieving greatness. In our society, it shows up more in sports than other areas of our life, but the fact remains, humans have an internal drive for purpose, meaning and greatness.

Now, just because we aren’t athletes doesn’t mean we don’t have that drive within us, it’s still there, but it tends to get lost in the daily struggles of earning a living for our families. I want to throw out what I concluded this past weekend…no matter what each of us do for a living, we each have the opportunity to play in our own respective “super bowl” in life. The questions to ask then are: 1) Are you performing at a level that will help you reach and win your “super bowl”? and 2) How bad do you want it?…..

Go win your “Super Bowl” and become a “Champion” in life!!!!!

Gob bless and have a great day,

Eric C. Blomdahl

  5. Great post Eric! It makes one wonder – am I really doing my best? Am I settling for mediocre or am I going to run after my Super Bowl? Sunday’s Super Bowl involved a ton of preparation for each and everyone on that field! What are we doing to prepare ourselves for going after our own victories? Team/Life is offering that preparation through their education system of reading, listening, and associating. Coming to hear from you and Jen this weekend is part of that preparation and we can’t wait! Thanks for serving!

  8. Powerful Eric! For a coach or athlete, winning the Superbowl may feel like the equivalent of going PC in the TEAM (wouldn’t know yet of course). Only the person in the game achieving the victory knows the amount of sweat, blood and tears that went into that win. The fans and spectators can only live through their victory. It’s exciting to know that LIFE offers a chance for everyone to win their own superbowl.

    I just watched this video again and it got me thinking about the difference between those who are successful and those who just hope to be. Those who ARE successful are out DOING something to achieve their goals. Thanks for sharing this – it was very helpful!

    Blessings,
    Lisa
