When asked if he gets nervous before an NBA basketball game he said, “Nah...basketball doesn’t make me nervous...people, family, & life off the court make me nervous.”
“Basketball is my shield...no matter what’s going on in my life, I can lace up and just play ball.”
Thinking he’s about to quit on me, I confront my salesperson. “I’m not quitting, Marsh, I’m just dealing w/ a lot of shit right now.”
“I took yesterday off to go play golf & get away from it all.”
Golf was his sanctuary...
🔥Many people have a shield w/ no sanctuary...& others have a sanctuary w/ no shield.
You need both.
A shield to protect you...
A sanctuary to provide rest.
You must create both because life is brutal...
& if you have no shield...no barrier to protect you from life’s hardships, you’ll drown in defeat.
🔥The car business...this podcast...my videos are a shield for me.
A place where I can be productive in the midst of bankruptcy, divorce, demotion, depression and eviction.
My shield protects me...but I need my sword too.
You can’t just lay there and let life throw haymakers. Life adds more hardship to provoke you to fight.
Your shield protects...your sword progresses.
🔥No matter what’s going on in your life...you can still Make Shit happen...
But you gotta fight...shield (protects)...sword (advance).
🔥But that’s 1/2 of it...
You need a sanctuary too.
A place where you can physically or mentally exert yourself (jogging, golf, cooking) yet get away from the noise.
A place to breathe and get lost for a bit..
🔥Today’s episode is the creation of both your Shield & Sanctuary ...to find your wins...to fight...renew...& advance.
🔥Create yours today.
