Who inspired you this week?

May 21, 2009

It’s easy to find inspiration if you just look around and notice other people doing wonderful things.

I was a partner in a public seminar this week. The attendance was lower than we wanted. It would have been easy to be depressed. Instead I found myself motivated by the interest and dedication of those who attended.

In particular – one person drove six hours to get there and another travelled from out of town by cab, commuter train and cab to get to our event. How could we even dare to let them down?

We delivered a fantastic program – because that’s what we do – and the audience expected it.

You only control one thing

May 19, 2009

You only control one thing. That thing is how you think. There might be things that you can influence some of the time – but you don’t have control of anything other than how you think.

If you only have this one thing that you control you might as well understand it well and take better care and control of your thinking.

Decide how you want to think. Then do what you need to do to think that way.

This gem came to me from Brain Tracy’s book, “The 100 Absolutely Unbreakable Laws of Business Success”.
