“Getting and staying Above the Line is the foundation for success in anything you do. It does not come naturally. It must be taught and learned.”
Without hesitation I share that I am relentlessly committed to living and leading Above the Line; I believe it has changed me as a father, husband, friend, and leader. While it has changed me, I am only at the beginning of my journey. I get better and better at staying Above the Line every day.
Also without hesitation I share that this commitment is a battle every day; it is a battle to live and lead Above the Line. I fail just as much as I succeed; I catch myself in negative self-talk and I still feel my chest tighten in moments of stress. Our jobs are difficult . . . it is not natural to change how we think and operate.
We are a team. We are a family. We learn together and we teach each other. We build skill together. You will fail . . . never give up . . . each failure is an opportunity to learn and to improve.
Staying Above the Line is the foundation for success . . . we are just laying the cornerstone. We have a long way to go, but our future is extremely bright. Keep it up!
