Be A Good One
When we were children I assume that most of us wanted to grow up and be someone famous. Most likely it was a movie star or a sports hero. We usually don’t dream of the routine or the mundane. We probably didn’t even realize that being a movie star or a sports hero was an actual job. We didn’t categorize those glamorous things as work.
Now as adults we realize that those childhood dreams and ambitions don’t always pan out as we had hoped. We may have settled into a somewhat less glamorous occupation. But settling into a job does not mean that you have to compromise on who you are and the effort you put forth. Even the movie star works with a supporting actor or actress that outshines them on the big screen. Even the sports hero plays on a team with another athlete who becomes the MVP of the championship.
It’s not your job title that determines whether or not you give your best effort day in and day out. It’s who you are that determines whether or not you bring your “A” game all the time.
There is a sign in my house that reads “It’s never too late to live happily ever after”. In light of today’s blog topic I would change that sign to read “It’s never too late to be a good one”.
I’ll let you be the judge. I would love to hear your comments.
