extra extraToday, I come wanting to share some good news with you:

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT IN ORDER TO BE GREAT OR REACH YOUR GOAL! I think that is important to share because there are many times we quit or don’t even try because we feel we’re not perfect or have the perfect circumstances.  Listen, we all make mistakes.  Most of us have experienced deep disappointments, failures, or challenges.  Luckily, we have opportunities to succeed in today’s world despite this.  Sports is a great analogy for understanding that we do not need to be perfect in order to win or be great.  Muhammad Ali, who recently past away, is considered by many as the greatest boxer of all time; yet, he wasn’t undefeated.  He wasn’t considered a power puncher.  Despite this, he is still viewed as the best ever.  The NBA will crown a new champion in the next few days; whatever team wins the championship will have experienced losing during the glory of a championship season.  Thank God perfection is not needed on the road to success; you only need to stay on the road!
