Plan to WIN… Play to WIN… Expect to WIN

“Too many people spend money they earned… to buy things they don’t want… to impress people that they don’t like.”  ― Will Rogers

A very simple thought this morning…

In looking at our numbers over the last 3 years, it is obvious that we spend most of our time and talent investing in the future.

Some do it well.

Some very poorly.

For the last 3 years running, 95% of my personal income — and it is a lot by most people’s standards (I am one of those guys who Obama wants to tax into oblivion) ‚ came from products and services that did’t even exist 24 months ago.

This year, 99% of our corporate income will come from products that did not exist last year on January 14, 2012.

If you are too lazy to reinvent yourself… if you are too lame to consider entirely different paths to living the life of your dreams… you will not understand a word of what I am saying.

If, however, you are serious about making the rest of your life the best of your life, here is my advice:

1. Constantly Think WIN… WIN. What’s Important NOW… What’s Important NEXT.

2. PLAN to WIN. The best teams in the NFL are advancing this morning to the Super Bowl because they had a GREAT season-long GAME PLAN.

3. PLAY to WIN. My beloved Broncos lost because they made just 2 mistakes in a game going into double overtime. They got beat, but they are still winners, one and all.

4. Expect to WIN. The only people who actually win are those who are in it to win it.

Expect to LOSE if you do not EXPECT to win.

Remember, WINNERS get the prize.

LOSERS get to talk about the weather!
