I just play the hand I’m dealt…

“May the best of your today’s, be the worst of your tomorrows” – Unknown

Have you ever met a person who is always looking for the next big, best, better, smarter, leaner, meaner, cooler thing in life. This is the person who rarely appreciates what they currently have. This is the person who is always under the impression if they had this or that then and only then life would be good?

I was watching Dr. Drew’s show while in the gym this morning and it was very interesting and not for the obvious reason you will find soon. The guests on the show were addicted to plastic surgery. One lady had L, yes L sized breasts and wanted to get surgery again. After speaking to a few guests it was obvious that she had a problem mentally. Each time she got surgery she wanted it to be the last time, BUT like clockwork she would become unsatisfied with what she perceived has a lack of perfection. Another woman on the show increased the size of her butt with both legal and illegal methods of butt injections. She admitted on the show it became a competition within her own mind to have the biggest butt. When she would see a woman who was bigger she immediately felt it was necessary to get surgery. This is what some may refer to as the Jones’ syndrome. We have all heard the phrase “Keeping up with the Jones”. Unfortunately in life this is a problem because you will NEVER be satisfied if your gauge of progress, success, or accomplishments is based on how you see those around you.

It’s very important to be appreciative of what you have and do not have. Your accomplishments and failures. Setbacks, and Setups.  DO NOT become a victim of your own mind and allow negativity to consume you. You and ONLY you control your destiny, your happiness, your satisfaction and conversely your pain, anguish, disgust and sense of failure. So the real question is are you going to play the game of life, play the game your dealt and outsmart the situation and be certain you are always winning…or are you similar to the woman I mentioned and going to continue to live life never satisfied and never happy with TODAY?

Be GREAT at what you do today!
