“Chill Pill”

The Coach’s Chronicles are the trials, tribulations, and triumphs that we all experience each day – we just need to take the time and look for them, experience, and most importantly – learn from them. I share an important ‘coaching moment’ with you each week to bring about some light of inspiring experiences that I have had the opportunity to live-out.

The Coach’s Chronicles: “Chill Pill”

I may surprise some of you, but I have a Type A personality – always driven, passionate, enthusiastic – sometimes over-the-top. While in a passionate conversation with some family members over the weekend, my granddaughter, Tate, said to me: “Pa Pa, take a chill pill.”

I thought for a moment and realized that it is okay to live with enthusiasm and be excited about life. It is truly generating your ‘internal energy’ and living each moment with zest.

If you’re not living each day of life with enthusiasm and passion, it can evaporate if not replenished each and every day. The pressures of today’s environment can take a toll on you if you allow it. Look around you — you see it — some have lost their passion, they have lost their zest in life.

The truth is, if we let it, life will become routine and stagnant. Don’t worry about what others may think – live your life each day with zest – be passionate about what you do … get excited about living.

Sorry Tate — No chill pill for Pa Pa!
