W.I.N. Wednesday: You are a product of your decisions.
"I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions."
Stephen R. Covey
It is easy to blame circumstances when things do not turn out the way you want them to. It is easy to blame the economy, your parents, the neighborhood you grew up in, your boss or the government.
If however, you are willing to Dare to Be Great and engage in the Pursuit of Excellence you need to accept responsibility for the decisions you make every day. Jim Collins (the author of Good to Great) says, “Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice.”
Understand that you are human. You will have days when you make great decisions, days where you make ok decisions and days where your decisions are less desirable. Every day however, is a new chance to choose. If you make poor decisions today, you have the opportunity to reflect on those, decide what you learned and make a commitment to making better, wiser decisions as you move forward.
What’s Important Now? Accept responsibility for the decisions you make and use the two following questions as a guide to make better decision in your life.
- What’s Important Now?
