“Life is a competition not with others, but with ourselves. We should seek each day to live stronger, better, truer lives; each day to master some weakness of yesterday; each day to repair a mistake; each day to surpass ourselves.” —David B. Haight

Good morning! During the last Olympics, my daughter and I talked a lot about what “being a Champion” means. When I read this quote, I felt it truly embraced what it means to be Champion in life. If each of us were to embrace this quote, how could we not feel good come nightfall?Few of us will ever compete in an arena such as the Olympics. However, each day we compete in the arena of life and self-improvement. If we embrace the teachings of today’s quote, a personal gold medal is within our reach.

Your Turn
: Do one of the following today:

* live a stronger, better, truer life
* master some weakness of yesterday
* repair a mistake
* surpass yesterday

Your Affirmation: I become stronger everyday.

  2. How selfish of me to be sitting here this morning with a defeated attitude, feeling like I don’t measure up, feeling like I can’t get on board with any system. Then I read this Good Morning and then beyond that I read Judith’s reply. God Bless you Brooke and God bless you Judith. I have nothing to complain about and being stronger and better starts with a decision to be so. Thanks ladies!
