Bet you’re glad you read this story by Jack Canfield…
“My earliest mentor, W. Clement Stone, was once described as an inverse paranoid. Instead of believing the world was plotting to do him harm, he chose to believe the world was plotting to do him good. Instead of seeing every difficult or challenging event as a negative, he saw it for what it could be — something that was meant to enrich him, empower him, or advance his causes.
What an incredibly positive belief! Imagine how much easier it would be to succeed in life if you were constantly expecting the world to support you and bring you opportunity.
Successful people do just that.”
We do that to ourselves regularly.
I’m not good (fill in the word) enough.
We ARE good enough. We are sufficient to the task. Sure we need help and as we take the action the answers are there.
You are needed. Remember these wise words from Helen Keller:
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.
Never tell yourself no
You have the ability.
We would do good to remember Marianne Williamson’s wise words:
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
(read the entire quote here) Make a difference today as you strive to reach your potential. We need your story.
Passion makes your day flow. Passion is rocket fuel for your mind. Walking through today can be an adventure or an indenture. Carrying baggage from yesterday ensures you will not reach your stride or fully enjoy the beauty. Ignite your passion each day by giving. Simply give yourself in service doing what you love.
Kevin Koym said it wonderfully when he reminded me that “… the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45 NIV)
Keeping up is not enough, you need passion to move ahead and be the servant leader the world needs.
What are you waiting for?
