(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Picture a large, paved parking lot empty of vehicles and people. We know it s a parking lot because of the lines painted on the pavement.

If you were to erase those lines and paint different ones, you could turn that same pavement into basketball courts. Or an auto racetrack.

The blank pavement is the base. The lines give it context, meaning. Change the lines; change the context.

Your life is like the pavement. It s the base. It s the lines that give it context. Your lines are the decisions and choices and actions you take.


Coaching Point: As long as you are above ground your life has a base. What lines are you painting to give context to your life?
