Are You Like Chuck Pagano & Living in a Vision…or in Circumstances?

“I’m living to see two more daughters, get married and dance at their weddings and hoisting that Lombardi trophy” – Chuck Pagano

Are You Like Chuck Pagano & ‘Living a Vision’…or in Circumstances?

We all have tough days in life. Some have it much harder than others but we all have it TOUGH! We have days where it seems all that can possibly go wrong does, and conversely have days where all is well. Unfortunately we focus on the negative much more often and often project it and accept it with more effort than the positive. Chuck Pagano is the former defensive coordinator for my favorite NFL team the Baltimore Ravens. He is now the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and recently found out he has leukemia. After Sunday’s victory the Chuck Pagano made a very emotional speech to his team.

The speech is powerful and I invite you to watch it below. But, the premise of the speech began when he described how after a dismal season last year everyone counted the Colts out of any significant progress this season. Furthermore he used a powerful metaphor by thanking his team for “living in a vision” rather than circumstance. His point was very simple. The team could have imploded crumbled up and threw this season to the waste side and treated as a “rebuilding year” but instead they have proven to be resourceful and have a chance to make the playoffs.

Chuck Pagano then started to speak about his recent diagnosis and his “living in the vision” motto rather than “the circumstance” He made a very powerful assertion that he is not only going to beat the disease but he is going to live to give his daughters away at their weddings, dance with them, and hoist the {Vince} Lombardi trophy with his players when they win the super bowl.

So I ask again are you “living in the vision” or “in circumstance”. When you woke up this morning what was your first thought? Was it positive or negative…be HONEST? Now ask yourself what can you do to focus on “living the vision” of what you plan to accomplish in your life rather than dwelling on the current “circumstance”.

We are victims or beneficiary of our own mind. What you think, and believe you will do. What you claim and embrace will be your reality. So if you choose to live in a negative circumstance it will consume you and destroy you. While if you choose to “live in the vision” of what you see being accomplished in your life it will be that much easier to accomplish your goals.

What’s the Point?

Don’t be a victim…be a champion for yourself then a hero to others. Don’t let those you care about dwell in a space that allows them to be defeated by circumstances. Learn their visions or share your own and don’t let anything keep you from doing what you plan to do in life. You only get one, so lets not waste another moment on CIRCUMSTANCES!
