Thank you Dr. Paula McDonald and Kathy Streib for this months challenge. In a three part series I likely will include more than one thought or affirmation in each part but here it goes for part two.
My first thought is that nobody bats a 1,000 which would be perfection in baseball. So if we are going to be successful in life and business we have to change our way of thinking. Should we not seek perfection but seek to avoid stupidity? Now that is an interesting question to ponder.
We have a responsibility to ourselves to improve ourselves. We have to realize that breakthroughs only occur when you see what you have always seen, and think what you have never thought, then do what you have never done. Are we ready for that change? Do we have the tools to change in our possession?
If you need a new tool and have not purchased it yet you are already paying for it in lost opportunities the same way you are paying for the knowledge you need but do not have. Are you ready to make the investment?
Good thinking is expensive but bad things costs a fortune. Which expense are you prepared to pay? This month's contest may help pave the way to good thinking by forcing us to write. If we write well it requires good thinking and that leaves bad thinking nowhere to hide. Good thinking takes time. It is not easy but worth the investment.
And I hope my ramblings explain my thoughts not to be understood but so that those who read this will understand. And that answer is not available if I don't try. So, they say success in on the other side of fear and this is my foray towards that goal. Continued in part three.
