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,
