Stay in shape (or get in shape if you are not). You do not have a choice about a lot of things in this world, but one area you do have a lot of control over is your fitness level. Physical fitness is an easy area to neglect – so don’t fall into the trap of inertia. Some of the greatest lessons in life, and personal victories that I have experienced have come during my participation in sports or athletic events. I recommend that you find a few sports that you enjoy, that you have an interest in, and that you have the skills for. No excuses for being fat and lazy. Like Nike says….Just do it. You will enjoy it.
I don’t know about you, but I’m running hard for the finish line. I’m giving it everything I’ve got. No sloppy living for me! I’m staying alert and in top condition. I’m not going to get caught napping, telling everyone else all about it and then missing out myself.
