A great slogan….it makes one think of the rugged sort of desperados that might have traversed these northwest Oklahoma high plains so many years ago just to survive, not a tag line, but simply a way of being…of living.
It also makes perfect sense and is timely even in today’s crazy world….
I liken this slogan to a catch phrase I use in my daily life and have for almost a couple of years now, a phrase, that quite frankly has made me the source of ridicule and fun making from some, but never the less, one that is absolutely true, real and an absolute in my life….. an easy one to remember, to remind one’s self of, and to hold close to one’s heart and head.
I know… you’re wondering if I’ll ever cut to the chase….YES I will… it’s this….
There is unequivocally NO TRY in my life….. there is only DECIDE AND DO.
DECIDE AND DO…it’s that simple.
There comes a point in one’s life where there are just no more excuses one can offer for lacking. Each of us are in control of our own path, the direction of our sail and how much effort we put forth in our ability to set the course. It is simply put a DECISION we make. This simple idea has helped me in more ways than I can ever explain in a few short paragraphs.
The journey to regain my best health, the road to helping causes that are important to me, my heart, and the world around me, my quest to grow my leadership skills into an ability to help others grow into what God has planned them to be, can all be traced to that DECIDE AND DO attitude. No try…only DO.
I say this mantra out loud, in my head, and my heart so much, …that my brain says it back to me now.
Look at it this way, you were born for greatness, we all were, you might have lost your way…but GOD has always known your path…and I am living, breathing proof that anyone, at any age, can pick themselves up and do something to better their own situation, AND someone else’s as well.
If you feel that this matches what’s in your wheel house…..consider, instead of saying “you’ll try”… next time you DECIDE to change the voice in your brain to a DECIDE AND DO attitude…Followed by ACTION….
This concept is from the brilliant minds of Michael and Debra Bernoff, these two incredible ones are in part responsible for helping me… continue to find my best version of me. Thank you both, I could never ever possibly repay you enough for this gift.
Hoping these words find you all chasing your BEST life!
