So, don’t fear painful experiences. Don’t run away from it!!
I once happen to see television star Michael J. Fox being interviewed on NBC.You probably know he has Parkinson’s disease. Most of us would be knocked down by this condition. But MJF was fearless. I wondered when he said that he actually felt Parkinson’s brought many blessings into his life. He actually shared during the interview how it pushed out all the superficial things, making way for much richer ones as WISDOM,UNDERSTANDING And LOVE!!
Such a powerful thought indeed: Life’s most powerful experiences are the very circumstances that introduces us to our best. During time of ease, we can get caught up in shallow persuits and pleasures. But Hard times cause us to go deep. The unmeaningful stuff fall aside and we awake to what is important.
Things like family, friends,relationships, presenting our best to the world, enjoying each day’s gifts and leaving the world better than we found it.
Every life is terminal. No matter how long we get to live, we are all headed for the same end. When you remember that before we know it we will all be dust. The things that currently limit you, like fear,pride and past disappointments, just fall away. And you discover that time to shine- and be great- really is now.
HATS-OFF TO YOU Michael J. Fox. FOR SHARING COURAGE AND FEARLESSNESS.FOR YOUR HONEST CONFESSION. FOR BEING A LIGHT IN A WORLD WITH FAR TO MUCH DARKNESS.
you must be thinking me a crazy person.But don’t be impatient.Let me explain! It is so easy to beat yourself up over mistakes you have made.
Most of the people live in past rather than loving the present and building a dazzingly bright future. Some people stay stuck for years over something they did or failure they experienced. NOT COOL! A life is a terrible thing to waste.
But can I ask you a question? Is there really such a thing as a mistake?
First of all, no one tries to fail or mess things up. We all wake up in the morning, walk out into the world and do the best on what we know, the skills we have and where we are on life’s journey. But even more importantly, every so-called mistake is actually a rich source of learning. An opportunity to build more awareness and understanding and gain precious experience. Experience that will help us do, feel and be even better.
EVERYTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU-THE GOOD AND THE DIFFICULT-WAS NECESSARY TO HELP YOU BECOME THE PERSON YOU ARE NOW.WHY MAKE IT WRONG?
So,just maybe, there are no mistakes. Just maybe what we could call failures are actually growth lessons in wolf’s clothing.
AND JUST MAYBE THE PERSON WHO EXPERIENCES THE MOST EVENTUALLY WINS!!
Do you want the fastest ways to find the solution to a burning issue or challenges you are facing today?There is only one way.Ask the right questions which will inevitably lead you to the correct answer.
Yes Friends- Questions matter!!
In business, remember performers are dazzingly good at getting to the right questions. This is the skill that speeds them to the place they need to reach and offer them the missing piece they need to find.
And in life, asking yourself a powerful question will allow you to step into a whole new set of possibilities that you may have missed while you were locked into an old way of seeing things. Like the lesson amid a so-called failure.
OR the opportunity that inhabits a setback.
To make you understand this theme better,i want to share with you a three questions: I suggest you may write them down and then find sometime today to answer them in your journal.I leave it to you.
- What one thing- if I did it- would profoundly improve the way I work and how I live.
- What needs to happen between now and at the end of the next 90 days for me to feel that this is the best quarter of my work and personal life?( Remember clarity precedes mastery)
- What would I like to improve,professionally and personally?
Well, thats enough for the day!!
I firmly believe in what they say: The harder and smarter you work, the luckier you get. You may wonder,” Is a remarkable life the result of luck or are there series of natural laws at play that produce great results once we align ourselves with them.
Well here is my answer. Good things happen to people who do good things. Do the right things and you can’t help but see the right results!!
The laws of nature are the same laws that rule our professional and personal lives. As you sow, so shall you reap. Care for and nurture your career or good health or your relationships and do you really believe that you will be denied an abundance of right results? No..No..NOT POSSIBLE!!
Sure,sometimes we get lucky. That’s just icing on the cake. To me, a rare-air life is the result of living in alignment with the laws of of nature. Doing things like adding value to people you love and all those who surround you. Treating everyone you meet with love and respect. Being unexpectedly honest and surprisingly enthusiastic.
Just keep doing these things and you will be fine.And remember,the more seeds you plant,the more patience you demonstrate,the more plants you will see.
Cool! Enough said!!
Only people who are willing to think differently can out-innovate everyone around them. Thinking the same thoughts produces the same results. Leadership is all about being the Brave Creative out in front in your marketspace and your career versus doing things the way everyone else does them.
Business does not need copycats. It needs more Dreamers.
Apple came up with the gorgeous and now ubiquitous i Pad. Now there are so many products with the letter “i” in front of it. Too much copying. Not enough leading.
In one of our Corporate Business conferences, we were told about a CEO who did something which made me smile. He hired a young wonderkid fresh out of business school- a kid who was not only brilliant, but thought differently, and was not afraid to voice his eccentric thoughts. The mandate of the new hire?
Sit on the company’s management team and consistently challenge ideas that fosters the status quo. This man was paid to push the envelope. To evangelize innovation. To make things better by being unorthodox in a world where most of us are afraid to leave the crowd.
So today, have conversation with people who are ORIGINALS. Strive to leave the safe Harbor of the known.
Make things better. Play bigger. And dream.
