Keep Running

“Right now a lot of men who have considered themselves successful are suddenly feeling as if they’ve fallen behind, perhaps irredeemably so.  Many men are dealing with this sudden economic downturn by taking out their frustrations on themselves – working harder, stressing more, and in some cases, simply giving up.  Too many of us identify with our self worth with the material trappings of our success, and when the foundation of that success begins to crumble, so do we.

It’s a marathon, not a sprint.

Sure, taking the lead in the race feels good, just as eating others dust can put a catch in your throat, but where you are right now is for only right now. Success isn’t about always being in the lead; success is about running a good race and recognizing that the lead position changes from moment to moment.” – Stephen Perrine – Editor of Best Life
