On My Wall
I’ve a grouping of 4 quotations on the wall in my workplace. In my earlier posts I mentioned these three:
Life isn’t about discovering your self. Life is about creating your self. (George Bernard Shaw)
What would you do if you happen to knew you would not fail? (unknown, additionally attributed to Minister Robert S. Schuller)
The gist of the primary quote is that few folks fortunately fall into significant work and that reflecting in your values might help you make higher, aware decisions. The second quote encourages folks to take calculated dangers moderately than all the time “enjoying it protected”. And the third quote emphasizes the significance of believing in your self and your potential to perform way over you may suppose.
The Final Quote
On this fourth put up within the collection, I need to share with you the final quote in my grouping on my wall. It’s:
Go confidently within the path of your goals. Reside the life you have got imagined. (a paraphrase of Henry David Thoreau)
In case you have (1) evaluated your profession decisions from the attitude of “that means” and have recognized one thing price pursuing, then (2) evaluated the potential danger and reward which led you to noticeably think about pursuing your goals, after which (3) developed ample perception in your self to take severe motion, then all that’s left is so that you can (4) set objectives for your self and take constant motion towards reaching your goals.
With out motion, your goals merely stay goals. Self-actualization requires motion!
So, we come to the crux of the matter. Would you like the chance to realize your goals dangerous sufficient to pursue them, or not? Solely you already know.
“Go Confidently in The Path of Your Goals”
Which leads me to the final body of a Garfield caricature I’ve on the door to my workplace. (I’m not a lot of a Garfield fan, however this one obtained my consideration.) Garfield appears to be like at Jon, who will not be making progress towards his objective, and spouts out one in all his typical feedback: “You gotta need it dangerous sufficient.”
For those who aren’t completely happy together with your present profession scenario, I hope you possibly can envision one thing higher… one thing that you really want dangerous sufficient to inspire you to start out taking motion in the present day.
I do know there’s something much better for you than what you have got in the present day. Take motion. Go confidently. You deserve it!
