There’s a saying in the UFC and probably across all combat sports, ‘Don’t leave it in the hands of the judges!’. This means that you should do everything in your power to end the fight yourself and not allow the fight to go the distance and let the judges decide the winner. Many times the judges announce the winner and the fans and participates are stunned in disbelief. But sadly, that’s the risk you take when you allow others to make the decision based on their perceptions.
Does this sound familiar to you? Are you doing everything in your power to keep your options open and find success and happiness in your life, or are you waiting on someone else’s decision? Are you waiting for your boss to decide if and when you get a promotion? Are you in a bad relationship and waiting for the other person to decide whether or not to continue? Are you the one that’s in control of your future?
A dream without a plan is just a wish – Katherine Patterson(recently taught to me by my fiance Kareen)
It’s up to you to decide your future. Decide what you are working towards and take small steps towards it every day. Have the courage to leave a bad relationship or work environment if it feels like a dead end that is making you miserable! There is no need to feel powerless. You are in control of your life and can make a tough decision that will drastically improve your future if you have the courage. Don’t leave it in the hands of the judges!
Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂
