You’ve Got to Have a Philosophy

I once heard a football coach proclaim:

“You’ve got to have a philosophy.”

He was talking about football and game planning of course, but the more I thought about those words, it hit me how relevant they are to all facets of my life.

I have a philosophy for my Health. I eat healthy, do yoga, meditate, and work out because I want to reach my full potential and fulfill my Soul Purpose. I can’t do that if I die an early death. I go to my doctor and dentist on a regular basis to get checkups and actually take their advice.

I have a philosophy for my Relationships. I take advantage of teachable moments to mold my son into a better person. I love my wife with all my heart and cultivate our relationship by spending time with her. I treat my family and friends with respect and volunteer my time and talents to help others.

I have a philosophy for my Finances. I save as much money as possible and invest wisely so one day soon I can stop working and devote my remaining days to my Soul Purpose on a full-time basis. I seek to learn as much as possible about money so I can make better financial decisions. I am committed to paying for 100% of our son’s college costs (or trade school) so he can get a head start in life and not worry about student loan debt.

I have a philosophy at work. I treat my employees well and help develop them so they can go on and have successful careers. I seek challenging assignments that help me grow as a manager. I seek ways to save my company time and money. I expect to be paid well based on my performance.

I have a philosophy for my writing. My posts seek to inspire and spur you to action so you will reach your full potential and fulfill your own Soul Purpose.
