“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” Michael Jordan. As our Canadian Thanksgiving wraps up, I reflect on and am so grateful for my ability to make it happen. I have a great life. When I think of what I’ve been able to accomplish over my 48 years I feel so blessed. And, I know it didn’t just happen by itself, I made it happen. Sometimes we need to take time to acknowledge those things.
What do you find yourself doing; wanting, wishing or making it happen? Over the next few days start to notice your language. When you hear the words of ‘want’ and ‘wish’ it’s time to ask yourself what you’re doing about it. Whether the action is something you need to do mentally or it’s physical, it’s action…it’s a belief…it’s a determination to make it so.
Sometimes when we work for someone else there’s a feeling like it’s out of our hands or our control to take action or change something. Well, it’s not, I promise you. I was in the corporate world for more than 21 years and what I know is that I control what I think, how I react, what I say, what I do and what I believe. That’s a lot. Think about it. Take a moment to think about a situation you are in and what you know..think..say..do and believe about the situation. Just changing even one of those things can have a huge impact on the outcome.
Today, I invite you to affirm with me “I make it happen” and let’s see what changes are in store for us! What great life are you creating?
