Overcome Your Odds

BY IN Life On July 25, 2016

6.0 Franco Harris Catch

No matter what situation I’m in, there are times that I sense that something isn’t right and more needs to be done. I can tell you that it is a pain and if you are like me, I think about not starting and quitting often. You know what I mean, I already have more than enough on my plate and I don’t need another. What stops me is that I know inside something needs to be done and I don’t want to think, “What if?”, not to mention that probably no one else will do it.

As I ponder this topic, I am reminded of the following in the sports world:

  • The Pittsburgh Steelers “Franco Harris’s Immaculate Reception” in 1972 turned into a TD by grabbing the ball with his fingertips as it was headed to the ground. The Steelers won that game and this was, what many believe, the start of the Pittsburgh 1970’s dynasty
  • West Germany’s 1954 soccer world cup victory against the heavily favoured Hungarians. In their earlier round meeting, Hungary soundly beat the Germans. In their world cup final match, the Hungarians were up quite quickly before losing the match

It seems that most times, “one event” separates us from overcoming. The key ingredient is to persevere. If you don’t persevere, you most likely will never get to that “one event”. You too can go from being a looser to a champion. My question, when will you overcome the odds and come into the limelight? Are you procrastinating like I have so many times in the past? You too can change. I know I have and you should be able to recognize it in the above examples.

In my own life, whenever I have gone the distance, the rewards are far greater than I could have imagined. I am telling you, yes you, the rewards are FUN and so are the NUMBERS! Not only are there are countless other stories to back this up, but I’m sure that you too have heard them. The next time you hear one, pay closer attention as this will help you more than you think.

Now I want you to imagine what it was like prior to being a champion. What were your NUMBERS like? How much FUN was it? Now imagine being on the Pittsburgh Steelers right after their 1st Super Bowl. How about on the West German national soccer team? Not only did the teams NUMBERS improve, but everyone else on the teams and those who dealt with them. Your success affects not only you, but a great number of others. It is this thought that keeps me going. You see, quitters never win and winners never quit! So then when will you join in the FUN and change your NUMBERS forever? What are you waiting for? Your new life is closer than you think. The opportunities are probably right in front of you. Better grab them as they won’t hang around……………..

On your “NUMBERS” team,
