Today’s post is not mine at all, but I feel compelled to share it with you, and more so to turn you on to someone’s work that I very much admire. I even gave him his own section in my RECOMMEND BOOKS area. His name is Seth Godin. If you simply type Seth into GOOGLE, you will likely go straight to his blog. His blog is incredible…at least that is my opinion. Sometimes short, sometimes long, but always intellectually stimulating. He posts something everyday, and I believe that is what makes his work so special. And if you think those are well written, you must check out one of his incredible books. If you do anything, don’t write Seth off as some sort of marketing guru…he is so much more than that. He just happens to be really good at marketing, business, etc.
I have known about Seth for a few years now. I had the privilege of meeting him earlier this year, and it was an incredible day when he actually commented on one of my own blog posts. Talk about someone motivating and inspiring me. For Seth to actually take the time to comment on something I had written meant everything to me and it’s one reason why I feel even more compelled to help as many people as possible on their own journey’s of personal growth.
For the past few weeks I have had the opportunity to influence nearly 100 college athletes, coaches and staff, and I have done so with nothing more than offering a few minutes of my time, my undivided attention, and a few words written on some paper. The feedback I received from all of those that I spoke with meant more than any material possession could ever mean. I was seeing change take place before my very eyes. That stuff that many people talk about in books, but that never gets realized. For me, it was happening day after day.
So check out the below post found on Seth’s site today…the best advice I can give you today is to consider signing up for his blog, it just might help you make a few better choices in your life.
All the best to you my friends!
All you have to do is look around to realize just how many choices we still have. What to eat, who to speak to, what to do for a living, what to learn, what to say, who to contribute to, how we interact, what we stand for…
The safe and comfortable path is to pretend that we’re blocked at every turn.
But most of the turns, we don’t even see. We’ve trained ourselves to ignore them.
A habit is not the same as no choice. And a choice isn’t often easy. In fact, the best ones rarely are.
But we can still choose to make one.
