Plays where the puck is going to be.

As the world watches the Olympics Games in Vancouver, Canada

I want to share with you an idea and some thought provoking questions.

If you’ve ever watched or played any kind of sports like Curling, Football, Tennis, Lacrosse, Soccer, Badminton, Baseball or Hockey then you know the key to the game, just as it is in life, is to anticipate where the ball or the puck is going or will end up.

There are many plays in life that we make everyday.  Some work out the way we planned while others just do not work at all but the key to the game of life is just that. It’s a game to be played to the fullest, enjoyed with passion, appreciated for it’s beauty and, most importantly, to be grateful for the results we create.

The legendary hockey player Wayne Gretzky said it best,

“A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.”

In life, whether it’s business or a relationship, we need to anticipate how we wish to see it in the future while enjoying the present experience.

Take some time out to visualize and journal answers to these following questions:

What kind of a person will you be 1 to 5 years from now?

How healthy will you be in 1 to 5 years?

How Wealthy will you be 1 to 5 years?

What kind of a relationship will you be in 1 to 5 years from now?

What kind of house will you be living in 1 to 5 years from now?

What kind of vacations will you take 1 to 5 years from now?

Spend some time and create your present future.
