Challenge Yourself To Shift To New Leadership Excellence
Be At Cause for Your Life

Most powerful is he who has himself in his powerI love this picture. It reminds me of the day I faced “The Wall” at Avoriaz, France. Admittedly I wasn’t going quite so fast, nor would I have looked so confident… more trepeditious with shaking legs and pounding heart than elegant and together. But still, I did it, and it’s a moment I am proud to recall.Making the decision to push myself off the edge of that near vertical ski-slope was tough. “The Wall” has a reputation for tripping up even the best skiers, let alone someone who could lose a few kilos and whose fitness levels could be a lot higher. But it was challenge I couldn’t resist. I had to prove it to myself. Foolhardy? Probably.The great thing about skiing though, is once the decision is made to go… changing your mind, turning around and going back… well that’s a lot more effortful than continuing down. That doesn’t mean that going down is easy, it just means that you have to constantly experiment until you overcome the obstacles… or fall over trying. True, it is dangerous, but the celebration and feeling of accomplishment when you finally make it… now that is priceless.

[pwal id=”36524228″ description=”Read the rest by Liking us”]Life is not like skiing. Most often the easiest choice to make is the one that avoids the obstacles. Something happens to interrupt (or sabotage) our plans and we adapt to avoid the problem, which leads to undesired results and disappointment. Our vision is to survive, so when something else blocks out path, we adapt to avoid that too, and on and on it goes. In the end, we blame anyone else for our own disappointment and beat ourselves up for our lack of courage and dwell in the misery of our own making…

WAKE UP!!!

Life is difficult! Who told you this was going to be easy?

Choose to be at cause for your life, become your own master and grab hold of the victory that is yours.
