In case you have not noticed, let me say that today is a minor landmark, “A Step A Day” reaches 50 – half a century for us cricket lovers!
I quote from my first post in this series on November 27, 2007:
“The objective: provide perspective and provoke thought to facilitate self-development across a wide spectrum of issues – big and small- crucial for executive success.
I hope this will be useful to many at my client companies.. At this stage of my life and career, my personal goal is: To Help People Grow.”
Everything you experience today, writes Jack Canfield, is the result of choices you have made in the past. He gives the example of an event – you are given a $400 bonus. If your response is to blow it up, the outcome is that you no longer have the $ 400.
For the same event, if your response was to invest it in a mutual fund, the outcome would have been an increase in your net worth.
We have no control over many things in life. But as Jack writes, we have control over 3 things:
- The thoughts you think
- The images you visualize
- The actions you take
You have to bring about positive changes in the way you look at things and act on them. I hope this series will provoke people to think and act differently. Too think and act for the better.
