This fall, one of my colleagues admonished me, “you are what you do everyday.” Her meaning was pretty clear – a professional (at anything) practices her craft every single day. It’s true in art, music, sports, even sales. Everything.
And then this morning, I was reading from “Law of Attraction” that “you attract to your life whatever you give your attention, energy, and focus to, whether positive or negative.” Pretty much the same thing my friend was telling me.
It was a powerful reminder to hone my craft consistently and positively, to keep first in my mind my goal of winning – for myself, my customers, and my company.
Because, to tell the truth, I have been lax in my thoughts and actions. I’ve focused more on the challenges I face, than on the opportunities – it’s been like seeing the potholes instead of where the road is going. Time for an attitude adjustment, I think.
