20 Words That Will Change Your Day

I have been taking things slow and getting back to my old self as I heal from my surgery. I always think I can do more than I ‘can’ and probably push myself a little too much at times. Personally, I think that is the way to continually grow and improve, however, that may not necessarily be the case with recovering from surgery.

With that in mind, I am going to re-post something I read – and you should get ready because it applies to everything, not just athletics!


Here are 20 words that will change your day:

  • New beginnings!
  • Perspective is key!
  • Be your best!
  • Live actively!
  • Make daily deposits!
  • Minimize obstacles!
  • Optimize solutions!
  • Maximize performance!
  • Avoid excuses!
  • Do better!
  • Love conquers all!
  • Thank you!

What a great list! I have printed it out and have it posted at my desk!

(Note: The original post was on Richard Harris’ site, Get Ready Athletics – however, this site is no longer there.)
