Pursuing Excellence….

The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.” – Buddha

World Cup Motivation

World Cup Quotes

Even though the U.S might be out of the running for the World Cup, there is still many reasons to tune into the most watched spectacle in the world at the moment.   Here are some quotes from the best to ever do it in the soccer world that will keep your week moving in the right direction: forward.

I can go anywhere. I can do anything.

This morning at the gym I saw an older man on the lateral chest machine, squeezing his old wrinkly pecs together to sustain any remaining definition he might have left. The man looked a bit like Lou Holtz, probably about 75 years old. What was impressive though was what’s underneath those pecs – a lot of heart. Wearing a simple grey T-shirt similar to those overworn “College” shirts slapstick humored freshman used to wear, the words on the shirt read: ” I can go anywhere. I can do anything”.

Being the motivation junkie that I am, and extra optimistic because “old lady bath and body works” was NOT at the gym today which allowed me to take in Oxygen, I asked him, ” Sir, love the shirt. You mind if I take a picture?” His answer was interesting as he replied, “Ah thanks but I don’t need people to know where I’m going”. Either he wears this shirt every day and that’s his coined line, or he said something very thought provoking. Do we need others to know about our accomplishments as we pursue them? In the world of self-promotion and branding and nonstop tweets, posts, and updates, is it necessary to tell others everything? I’m not saying which way I lean here, and from a professional standpoint it’s certainly the Meconomy out there, but are we doing things to fulfill our own passions or to impress others?

In the end, I snuck the pic anyway (shown here) but the bottom line: You can go anywhere. You can do anything. Regardless of who’s watching.
