Win or Go Home

The playoffs for the NFL Championship are in full swing. The word on the street is: win or go home. The Minnesota Vikings took on the New Orleans Saints yesterday to see who would advance to the next level. On a miracle 61-yard pass, Kase Keenan and the Vikings beat Drew Brees and the Saints in the last 30 seconds of the game. The winners continue to sharpen their skills and look toward this next weekend, where they compete against the powerful Philadelphia Eagles. The losers go home. They decompress, lick their wounds and begin to draw up plans for the next season. Depending on their focus and attitude, they can live unstuck. Or they can be mired in failure. Their choice.

Have you really wanted a raise? But got turned down? Looked for a promotion, but someone else got the slot? Were you gearing up for a move, but it didn’t work out? What’s your Plan B? Do you “win or go home”? Do you live up to your expectations and thrive in the new job? Or do your coast on your laurels? Do you choose to hone your talents and get the position on the next go-“˜round? Do you fold up and sit at home, waiting for another opportunity to knock on your door? Do you remember: on the door to success, it says push and pull? Live unstuck. #Unstuck Living

Start where you are.

Use what you have.

Do what you can.
