“be great, but more importantly, be grateful.”
I recently read a blog post on leadership and some quotes that reminded me about the infinite power we all have to be the best we can be! One of my favorite quotes is:
“We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.”
As I was discussing this past weeks progress with a client, I was again reminded of how we have the power to choose and create the changes that we desire. With just one shift, we can immediately begin to create our own “success”. Something I said to her last week made all the difference in her focus since then.
In response to her perceived obstacle, I said, “be great, but more importantly, be grateful.” The abiltiy to hear that and put that into motion made all the difference in her interactions and thoughts thereafter.
When we focus on the gifts that we can potentially gain as we move along in our journey, we become enlightened and empowered. Our experiences that once were perceived to be ”obstacles” or “challenges” no longer immobilize us or cause us to be fearful. When we choose to focus on any experience as a gift, we empower ourselves to take what we can from it to grow us, our vision and our infinite power to succeed in all things.
When we look for the gifts while navigating through our journey, our thinking, feelings and perspective naturally shift about “it” to a place of abundance and gratitude!
Enjoy each baby step. Each one is a stepping stone to your future success!
Have an empowered day!
