Life at times feels like a never ending revolving door. We chase after stuff and it seems to elude us or maybe we “win” and “winning” does not provide the feeling we were hoping for. As a basketball coach I was blessed to have great teams and four years in a row we won our last game and won a championship. It is a great feeling of accomplishment and my joy was compounded by watching the joy of my players. All their hard work paid off. Following our run of four in a row we lost in the semifinals and as I talked with the team I felt this very strong urge to do all I could to avoid losing next year. I could blame the other teams I could blame the officials I could blame my players or I could evaluate what needed to change and change it. Don’t wish you have what “they” have, create it for yourself, create your own luck.
