Leadership Thought Of The Day…

“To create more positive results in your life, replace ‘if only’ with ‘next time’.” Author Unknown

Consider the occasion we heard or said ourselves, “if only.” We often fill in the blank that follows by saying something related to health, money, work, school, etc.

Too often we tend to live life with a mentality of thinking “if only” our circumstances were better, life would be better.

Imagine the difference if our approach was more “next time.” We might see a positive change if the approach involves a consideration of what we will do the next time an opportunity presents itself.

The difference is a mindset. If we are waiting for something to accidentally fall from the sky and our world to suddenly become positive and successful, we might be waiting until eternity.

On the other hand, however, when we possess the mentality of seeking opportunities to help others, then our entire worldview changes. The focus turns from an inward “all about me” way of thinking, to a “what I can do to benefit others” perspective.

There is a difference and the choice is ours.
