In this last post for the year, I want to wish you all a 2006 filled with hope, intention, courage, resolve, and success!
There are many schools of thought about how to manifest success, but they all seem to have some common themes:
- The every day choices we make are decisive. Make better choices, get better results.
- Get and stay in focused action. Success is made.
- Broaden your thoughts, inputs, and mindset.
- You become your focus.
- Be your future today. Or as the great Gandhi said, "be the change you seek in the world."
Yesterday my post was about what scares us. Tom's intent (I presume) was to throw out there that we should do things that scare us in order to stay on the edge where we can expand our contribution and growth. In this context, I find I have to nudge myself to ask for what I want. It is sometimes uncomfortable but I know it is important.
I think moving beyond certain fears can be helpful. For example, what I fear most relative to my business and career is becoming outdated and irrelevant. This fear drives me to stay on top of things, expand my connections, and explore new methods and technologies. That said, I am worried that I am not doing this enough - I feel a bit behind the curve when it comes to technology. For example, I still can't figure out Squidoo (but I want to and will explore this more). What exactly is a lens and how can I use them? As an author, should I have a lens? Hmmm... I will have to dig deeper.
Well, enjoy your bubbly.
Here's to a great and sometimes scary year for all!
