Your Outlook Determines Your Outcome!

Picture the scene, it’s Monday Morning (-15C), and I’m off to work. I open the door and this is the scene that greets me!

07:00am Monday Morning

In life, there are few things that direct your OUTCOME, like your OUTLOOK. Take a look at the two photos. What is the first thing you would have thought? Remember it’s -15 (without the wind chill), when you see six inches of snow on your car? Well this what in fact what I saw. I opened my door 07:00am on a Monday morning. So, I ask again what do you see?

Scroll down!

Personally it made me smile! I see opportunity!!! I’m going skiing!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is this outlook that resulted in the outcome of me going skiing with my daughter a couple of days later. The smaller skis on the right are hers.

I have the pleasure of teaching her how to ski! It is a memory that I will never forget. Seeing her conquer her fears and make the most of every day? What more can a father wish for?

So what lessons have we learned from this post?

Don’t focus on the problem! Look for the blessings (and opportunities)!!!

Look Around – You May Be Surrounded By Heroes.

After reading this post look around you. Appreciate the special people around you.

When you look around you, there are heroes in your life. I have the pleasure of working with one such individual. As a young foreman, he took me under his wing. Over the fifteen or so years working with the man, I discovered that management could; and should be fun. We used to look forward to going to work.

A further example of what a hero is, will be described in this example. Imagine how you would feel if your partner came home from the pub, with a ‘new friend’. The friend was down on their luck and struck in the following trap. You can’t get a job, if you don’t have an address. You can’t get a home, if you don’t have a job.

Over the next few months, he helped get this person a job at our company and worked with the individual to find an apartment.

We all like to think we would be able to help another person who needs it. But who can honestly say that they would actually DO it?

The man that I’m speaking of has just lost a battle that he was fighting after having a heart attack over 14 years ago. I for one am indebted to him for the time that he took with me. He taught me things that you will never find in print. i.e. how to spot a person that will be key to the success of a project in a crowd!

Grow To Receive – Profound Observation

Today’s profound observation.

You only get the fruit when the tree has grown

Habe you ever wondered why youhaven’t acheived what you want?

NO I’M NOT SELLING A TRAINING PROGRAM.

This hit me lile a steam train. What you DO with it, is upto you.

When I was an apprentice, I studied to be CARPENTER (not an apprentice). When I grew into that position, I became a Carpenter. This example has repeated itself throughout my life. 

Study,

Grow

Acheive.

 

So now replace the above, with what you want to achieve. The same rules apply. Study the place that you want to be…………. once you have grown into that position, it will be realised.

 

I hope this message resonates with you as it did with me. Go study what you want. Let me know how it works.
