It's March Madness, and the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournaments are dominating ratings. Fans around the country, like me, are glued to the television, clapping, screaming, and jumping up and down supporting their favorite team.
Are you cheering for yourself? Or, are you waiting for something big to happen in order for you to get behind the home team, You?
Have you lost hope that you will win at something?
Cheering yourself on, is giving yourself energy to complete whatever goals you have set yourself. You have to be your own coach and cheering section. No one is going to believe in your dream like you, because the dream wasn't given to them. It was given to you.
Like in any game, life is filled with disappointments and set-backs, but at the last minute, you can still make the winning score. There is a saying, "Don't give up five minutes before the miracle happens."
Turn away from the past mistakes, and failures. Live in the present, and go after whatever you have been putting off and doubting. Lift up "Team You" by telling yourself over and over and over, "I am a winner," until you no longer doubt yourself. For too long you probably have been saying the opposite.
It's never too late, You were born to win!
