If It Is To Be …
This message may offend some readers.
It certainly isn’t intended to offend anyone. That is not our style. We only intend to uplift, never -ever to drag down.
That’s because greatness comes from with-in you. Not with-out you.
Again, we know you have greatness within.
But, first, you need to believe in you -- and our job is to help you do that.
You see, I turned on the radio yesterday, as I sometimes do in the car when I am out of podcasts and a variety of audio programs.
A political talk show was on.
And, somewhat sadly, there are no shortage of these commentators nowadays.
The guest was a psychologist. He was on because he was diagnosing 100,000 people suffering from 'post traumatic wrongful-election distress syndrome.'
Now, whether you are part of the gold, bronze or silver party (these are not real party’s of course), it's unimportant for this purpose, really.
What is important is the attitude that is expressed:
Helplessness, or that someone is coming to the rescue.
It has been said that the true sign of maturity is the realization that no one is coming to the rescue.
And you can do it. You can do whatever you set your sights on.
After all, there is no such thing as an unrealistic goal. Only unrealistic time frames.
So, I propose that as we begin this new year (regardless of day or the month you start), that you set some big, hairy, audacious goals for yourself. Then align yourself with a carefully chosen team of people that can help you achieve those goals.
Then work like crazy.
And so, as you develop your career, your motto ought to be:
If it is to be, it's up to me.
When you carry a confident, it-is-up-to-me attitude, you will find people are magically attracted to you, wanting to be part of your winning team.
And you will accomplish more, faster than you ever thought possible.
