Throw Yourself Into Life With a Passion
If you've ever been to Green Bay, WI, you understand that football fans take the meaning to a whole 'nother level. Infants are wearing the colors, Halloween costumes sport the green and gold, winter wear of choice is a Packer's Sweatshirt, and cars proudly fly waving banners, specialized license plates, beads over the rearview mirror and more. More than one owner has their car painted in fan proclamation. There's tailgating, house parties, billboards, green and gold bakery items in the stores, streets and buildings named after players and coaches -- It seems that the greater population celebrates the franchise with year-round passion.
How do you "attack" your passion in life? Do you proudly wear your "colors"? Do you weather the good seasons and bad seasons and optimistically envision a "super-bowl" finish? Can you sit out the storm in hopes of catching something you just don't want to miss?
It's easy to corrolate a Green Bay Packer's season with my Real Estate career. I didn't automatically start out as a star quarterback. I started out as water boy, slowly moved into "third" string and have been working my way up, gaining education, experience, and lots of hard knocks. My championship season is yet ahead of me, but I can feel it, taste it, envision it. It's coming, just like ANY Green Bay Packers fan knows the next Superbowl is just around the corner.
I've had rainy seasons. I've dropped the ball, fumbled, picked myself back up again, and put my toe to the line. An inch at a time in forward motion gets the job done.
I can take a lesson from once again experiencing the passion of the Green Bay Packers fans during my recent visit. If I wear it, live it, dream it, envision it - Passion for my career can mold me into a first-string player.
