Yesterday I was watching some pelicans fly by me as I was sitting on the beach. While watching them it was very clear that they were using teamwork and staying focused on their ulitmate objective: survival. At some point in their evolution, they learned that when they work together thier chances of finding food was significantly increased.
I believe we can learn a valuable lesson from these birds. No matter how good you are at what you do, there is always someone else that can help you achieve your goals. For me, I frequently attend seminars and workshops to help me grow both personally and professionally. I suggest that you find someone who can mentor or coach you, I certainly do. Even though I coach and mentor others, I have found it extremely benificial to get coached myself. Initially I thought I didn’t need any assistance but man, I was way wrong. Getting coached and attending seminars has helped me take giant leaps toward achieving my goals.
Once you get a coach or attend some seminars and workshops, the next step is to stay focused on your goals. Get the attitude of “I can and I WILL do this” and accept nothing but a positive result. You know, that part of you that “steps it up” when it is a do or die situation. You can achieve anything you desire, just seek help from others and then have a focused determination to do whatever it takes to achieve it. You CAN do this and I know you WILL.
Peace and gratitude,
