“A great leader’s courage to fulfil his vision comes from passion, not position.” Anon
Happy New Year Everyone. What is your vision for 2015? Not New Year’s Resolutions, but vision! Sure you may need to make some resolutions or decisions about your goals or plans so that the vision is either realised or well on the way by the end of the year. I have had a string of New Year themed emails in the last day or so and one that I thought had more substance than most of them was about using the word ‘NO.’
A few years ago I worked through a programme which was about the natural laws that we often have not been faced with throughout our schooling. One of these was the Law of Sacrifice. Usually when we hear the word sacrifice, we think of having to give up something. Instead however, we could be thinking that by giving up one thing we are gaining something else. If we say No to something, it means we could be saying Yes to something else that we feel more passionate about. The author of the article had 15 different concepts he was offering us to look at & why we might say No to all sorts of things after considering the outcome. To do that we need to know what our vision is, how we plan to get there & how passionately we want to succeed!
Enjoy saying No to the things that will not help you move towards your vision!
