How Lucky, Gifted, and Focused Helps Us Achieve Higher Levels of Performance



“Disability is not inability.” – Proverb

The right words can help lift us and operate at a higher level.

We’re more than our words, but our mental mantras and one-liner reminders can help us dig a little deeper and reach a little further.

As I was watching a Samsung commercial, the words they used echoed in my mind:

“Lucky, because I never give up.”

“Gifted, because I don’t take short cuts.”

“Focused, because I see past the finish line.”

“Fastest, because speed is my competition.”

“Legend, because I am one step ahead.”

They remind us of the price of success, and what it takes to go beyond.

Beyond our own limits.
