Let’s apply some of the above principles to everyday life.
Sportsmanship – True success in life comes with how you play the game. Success comes from hard work and giving it your all. When you try to find shortcuts to success you’ll end up at the back of the line of your own personal self-respect. Learn to praise those who do well and be kind and generous when you come in first.
Deportment – How you carry yourself and how you behave does matter. Be known as one who cares and extends a helping hand instead of leaving it to others. You have the God given American freedom to look and do as you please, but always remember; others are watching. Lead by example. You can be emancipated without reverting to intimidation. If you intimidate you are driving instead of leading. It’s much easier when people follow rather than trying to force them in another direction.
– Always remember you are the sum total of all those who’ve invested in your life. They are part of your team of life that made you what you are today. If you want to succeed in the future, make those around you better. You might be surprised at how much you’ll grow and become better yourself. Learn to love life and love others. Play by the rules. For The Love of the Game reminds us that success is measured by how well we play the game.
One day when we stand before our heavenly Father, His question will be: “How well did you play the game?” We want to hear Him say, “Well done good and faithful servant.”
