This year theme for DECA is “Make It Count” and I personally it is the best one yet. Three words that really go a long way. Since we found out the theme for this year, I have been saying to myself” When in doubt, MAKE IT COUNT”. It’s a simple but great quote in my eyes. It serves as a great life quote but also a great motivation one. On the life aspect, it shows when you are going through a rough time and you feel like you want to quit, remember when in doubt, MAKE IT COUNT! For the motivation side, when you need to go to the gym or you need to get on that 10 page report, MAKE IT COUNT! Especially when you put on that DECA blazer and you know you are prepared, you have done all the work, stayed up late working, lost sleep over the stress… MAKE IT COUNT. Here’s a funny story, this past weekend we had our first cross country meet. Right before the race we got in our traditional huddle and said our prayer. After the prayer I gave us a little pep talk and the main thing I said to the them was to make it count! You have 3.1 miles to run, make ever step count! What I am trying to say in the whole blog is, that life isn’t always going to be easy but when you have the great mentality that every Florida DECA member has and YOU MAKE IT COUNT there is no reason to say, that the sky is the limit. I believe in you all that you will MAKE IT COUNT all this year, hopefully you guys are planning a great year ahead of you! Can’t wait to see you all at Emerging Leaders, stay safe!
P.S. WHEN IN DOUBT, MAKE IT COUNT!
