So how do we control the meaning we give something?
We ask ourself intelligent questions that set our brain off on a new path of thought.
Try these on for size…
What am I grateful for in my life right now?
Who in my life do I love?
Who loves me?
Who in the world would kill to have my problems?
What is Apple doing differently from General Motors?
Who is getting jobs right now with less education and less going for them right now?
What are they doing differently?
What opportunity comes from the current market?
What makes me different from all the other students and graduates in my class?
Great questions right…?
You might come up with a new meaning.
Question your current beliefs.
Anything that can be conceived or believed can be achieved.
“Whether you can, or you can’t, you are right” Henry Ford.
I end where I began with the title of this post…
Give yourself a Big, Fat, Hairy Goal.
You know the ones that people think you are crazy for even believing.
The “Don’t be ridiculous ones”
If people don’t look at you and say your an idiot, then it is not big enough, not fat enough and not hairy enough.
Mike Harris told me the other day either revolutionize, reform, transform or don’t do it.
This comes from a multi billionaire in Banking & Finance, perhaps we have something to learn.
Never underestimate what you can achieve.
If you do, you are like everybody else, and everybody else lives a life of mediocrity.
People sometimes criticize me…
…saying that I am giving false hope to those who have no chance.
That is their limited thinking.
Let their limited belief inspire you to action.
Don’t you want to prove people like that wrong?
I have found that when people say you can’t, that it is a great driver for me to prove them wrong.
I will always believe if anybody is 100% committed to a decision they can always find a way.
My Big, Fat, Hairy Goal
“I want to Reform Banking”
Last week I was invited to Westminster to discuss the Future Of Banking & Finance with MP’s while meeting Banking Transformer Mike Harris to tee up a meeting. More on this to come.
The power of a Mission Focused Goal?
Anything is possible.
Write yours down right now and carry it with you on a piece of paper everywhere.
Then take action and chip away at it.
To your Banking & Finance Career Success.
