Personal March Madness, Day 8: I was just reading an article in Unity Magazine by Rev. Jim Gaither called Create Your Own Cinderella Story. It has inspired me to write this post as it fits in so nicely with the March Madness theme! In his article he speaks of several people who have in their lives been thrown huge curve balls, things looked as bad as they could get- and by sheer persistence and belief in something better they accomplished things that looked impossible. He speaks of resilience and taking matters into your own hands- to create your Cinderella story.
What will it be for you? We hear about Cinderella stories each year during the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament (like my fav Butler last year). The underdog that seemingly against all odds, wins big!
Your Personal March Madness (see post from March 1st) is your choosing. It is also your choosing to be like rubber and bounce back fast when you get off track, it is also your choosing to believe in the face of no proof what so ever, that you can stick with your plan and reach your goals and dreams.
It is your choice to listen to certain people and not others, it is your choice what you watch, read, and think about. (and don’t watch, read, and think about) It is your choice to be consistent in your actions day in day out, even (and especially) when it gets boring. It is your choice to do the things others will not do in order to achieve the life and business you want to live.
It is your choice who you let lead you, who you learn from. And biggest of all- it is your choice to make your own decisions, to learn to listen to your intuition and to act on it.
Ultimately, it is your choice to take action- whether the action turns out to be the right one or not is not the issue- without taking massive action, your Personal March Madness and your Cinderella Story will just wind up another thought- a good thought- that you once had that went nowhere. Is that what you want?
