Most unsuccessful people believe that they suffer from bad luck or Murphy’s Law. Successful entrepreneurs believe that the world is conspiring to help them achieve their goals.
I was recently interviewed on this topic and asked if this principle has played a part in my success in building connections, partnerships and ultimately reaching my goals?
My answer was this.
My principles go much deeper than an impersonal “law of nature” or the “law of reciprocity”. My life verse comes from Psalm 139 that says that from the foundation of the earth, every day of my life was ordered. I was created to be the very person that I am and to come across the paths of those that can help me achieve my goals, my hopes, and my dreams.
The nice thing about that perspective is that I just have to wake up every day and be guided by peace and clarity of vision for the day. That doesn’t mean everything will go smoothly and that there will be no obstacles or no chaos.
Like this picture of the path that is flooded, I can take off my magic shoes (see yesterday’s blog) and walk on through.
I can walk through difficult situations (including a spectacular business failure resulting in a significant personal loss) with complete assurance that there is something on the other side of those mountains and that I will be stronger by emerging on the other side.
I believe that people are attracted to people who are peaceful about their situation and who have that clarity of vision to know how to persevere, no matter the circumstance.
Do you have that peace and clarity of vision about your venture?
Is your path currently flooded or is there a mountain in front of you that seems impossible to climb?
Ask for help. You’ll be amazed who comes across your path.
