Your Expectations Aren’t High Enough

Don't Stop
Don't Stop

You heard me correctly, it’s not a typo. ¬†Your expectations are not high enough.

There are people who publicly and privately think I should back off, or slow down.

And sometimes it’s easy to start to think, “Maybe they’re right”. But it never lasts long.

A song, a movie, a thought, a blessing, a tragedy – all these things snap me out of doubt, fear and uncertainty.

Last night, it was a movie, Invictus, an inspiring story about Nelson Mandela and the South African Rugby team.

Start walking, get moving.

Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in a small (hell) prison cell.

And you’re telling me you can’t walk 4 or 5 days every week?

  1. For most people, it’s not a can’t. It’s a won’t. It’s a choice.

    A choice to stay in bed, stay on the couch, or sit in front of the computer, instead of walking. Replace some of those activities on a consistent basis and send the pharmaceutical companies packing! Send a message to obesity, hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, etc., . . . . you get the picture.

    Genetics may still play a role. But lifestyle can deal a heavy blow to DNA!

  2. Good Sunday morning David.

    Our choices make us.

    And, our genetics are simply speed bumps on life’s journey.
