WHAT APPEARS TO BE
Okay, it may be impossible to know exactly what is going to happen tomorrow. But consider the possibility that there is one thing you can predict accurately – and consider that this will give you the advantage you need to be successful.
WHAT MIGHT BE
What was today filled with? Difficult conversations, people who don’t seem to change, difficult decisions, growing financial pressures, and idiots who”just don’t get it” fill the days of most of the people around us.
Do you know anyone who goes through life with an “it’s going to be another one of those days” approach? Have you noticed how these people make little progress in delivering improved results, building stronger relationships, and moving their career forward?
WHAT CAN BE
That’s because they don’t do what a friend named Ron does. “I believe that today’s challenges are tomorrow’s experiences. And this allows me to continuously improve, day after day.”
It might be a coincidence that Ron works for the leading glass producer in the world, but given his approach, perhaps not. Because Ron approaches everything today as a resource for tomorrow, Ron is going somewhere.
Tomorrow, this much is certain: you’re going to move through it with the experiences of today. Will those experiences reveal that you dismissed challenges as hardships – or used them as opportunities to learn, grow, celebrate and succeed? Is your “Awareness Muscle” strong enough to observe, assess, and plan your own effectiveness?
Go ahead, make a prediction. What will your tomorrow look like?
What is the difference between what “might be” and what “can be”? You decide.
