Let’s Get Started
I’ve done a number of things, engaged in a multitude of opportunities. I’ve wanted, desired, coveted, reached for aggressively, or planned methodically. I have time again met with success, and lots and lots of failure.
However, if there is one thing of which I can be sure, it is that this is simply the state of being. Success and failure comes with trying. If you do not try, you cannot succeed. And though you may experience so much failure, failure that runs so deep as to cut you low, drown you with despair, force you to the quitting line, I say to you now that if you truly believe you were meant to do something more, something different, something better, then you cannot quit. You must dust yourself off, pick yourself up, and get started … again.
This is where I find myself, and I know I am not alone. What makes it different this time? Nothing, I honestly don’t know if it’s going to be different. What I do know is that I have tried, and tried again, and that with each success I have grown, and learned to not celebrate too much, or rest on my laurels. With each failure (and I have had ALOT more failures) I have learned, and learned, and learned, and grown wiser in the failing.
As I launch out again I am taking the total sum of all I have attempted, all I have learned, all my failures and all my success, combining them in a concise set of projects designed to make 2016 a year of pivotal change. I am actually using what I have taught for years to the best of my ability, pushing to expand my limits by extensively utilizing my capabilities.
I always tell my teams we do the best we can within the parameters provided. This year, we push out the parameters and break them down.
So, with that understanding I get started. However, my hope is I will not get started alone. What I have produced is meant to be shared. What I have invented is meant to foster hope, energy, fun. What I have written is meant to elevate, inspire, motivate.
I love people, and my sincerest desire is to be for everyone I meet, a PRIME MOTIVATOR; that in so doing I realize my own critical success, fulfilling a little something in others and seeing it reflected in myself.
Onward and upward in 2016 my fellow aspiring critical thinkers!
