Achieve Your Goal (Post)…

Remember high school football? Suiting up for the big game on Friday night. Living by the motto, “Look good, feel good, play good” because heck, all your friends, family, and peers will be out to the stadium to watch you play ball. You wanted to shine so you would not only make the paper on Saturday morning but you would also be the star in the cafeteria at Monday’s lunch. You have your eye black on (even though you play at night). You’re team wins the coin toss and you choose to receive. Coach sends you deep to return the kick. The opposing team’s kicker lines up for the opening kickoff. The marching band is playing from the stands. People are cheering. The excitement level could not be higher. The ball is kicked. As it soars through the air, everything goes silent. Your focus is on the ball and nothing else. Everything in your mind is blocked out. This is it. The kick is deep. You backpedal to catch it and…

WHAM! Right in to the goal post. Man, what an IDIOT! You’re never going to live this down. You better bring your lunch on Monday and eat it in the bathroom. This is more embarrassing than having a face full of acne.
