Did you catch this year’s ESPY Awards? If you missed it, some of the best in sports were in attendance. LeBron James, Peyton Manning, Abby Wambach, and even Vice President Joe Biden was there as a presenter.
I’m always moved by the touching tributes, including this year’s tribute to Craig Sager, who was presented the Jimmy V Perseverance Award.
What really stuck out to me this year was something Kobe Bryant said as he accepted his Icon Award. Kobe talked about is two-a-day and sometimes five-a-day practices, and all the hard work that got him to where he is today. He ended with a quote his high school basketball coach would say to him, and I’ve been thinking about this quote since last night.
“Rest at the end, not in the middle.”
You’re not a professional athlete, but you should still be in training to become champion of your own life. You may not be going after a ring or a trophy, but you are fighting for peace of mind, self-satisfaction, and the life you can build for yourself if only you reach your goals.
Kobe went on to explain how none of his accomplishments would be possible without the entire team and his coaches. I believe this is true. Without the team and the coaches – there would be no championships.
Now is the time for you to get in the game. I encourage you to rest at the end, not in the middle.
STEP 1: Gain clarity about what will really make YOU happy.
STEP 2: Get clear on your current reality – the good, the bad and the ugly.
STEP 3: Get to the WHY. Understand why you are where you are at this point so you don’t make the same mistakes.
STEP 4: Re-commit to new goals and next steps to move forward.
STEP 5: Remain disciplined until the very end. Don’t rest in the middle.
