Recently, I have found myself again reflecting a lot on how I arrived here and asking, now what? What do I have to contribute at this important time in history? How can I use what I have learned to add my fingerprints in some meaningful way? I've learned one needs confidence for the next frontier of life. As I have sorted through a lifetime of achievements, big and small and tiny, in many aspects of my life, I see a pattern in what it took to achieve a goal. These things always seem to surface...
- a vision of success that ignited some passion inside me.
- a lot of hard work, learning, risk and mistakes.
- supporters I greatly appreciated and dissenters I had to convince.
- a firm belief in possibilities in the face of passing adversity.
- a deep sense and drive to make a difference.
- a thrill in the victory, but rarely a cheering crowd. Instead a quiet celebration inside saying,
"I did it!"
In the end, fulfilling a goal has more often been a new beginning not a finish. New hopes seemed to lead to the next challenge. ...and today, we have both the challege and opportunity resting at our feet.
If we could meet and talk about your accomplishments, I assume we would find a similar pattern in your experience. In fact, I feel almost certain that if we looked closely at accomplishments of those who changed the world or even just their own lives in some way, we would also find common ground.
Why? Because this is the journey of the problem solvers, change leaders and difference makers, past and present.
Welcome the unexpected.
Watch for the uncharted path that bears your name.
Look for the signs that lead to the verge of differences.
Lead the Way!
I can, I will, I must...
