Moments + Reaction = Outcome
Our lives are made up of a series of experiences or moments…. Some will leave us in tears and the feeling of why… others will fill us with joy and happiness giving us the feeling of that’s why. The majority of these moments happen and we have little control over how they occur.
It also stands to reason that very rarely do we set out on a path to consciously want an undesirable outcome. When we set off for that early morning run or we step up to deliver that presentation it’s a very we are stepping up expecting a less than favourable result.
So what can we do to get a more desirable outcome? Taking responsibility for our reaction to an event or moment will determine the quality of our outcomes. Shifting your focus to what needs to be done to succeed sets you up to get the result you desire.
It’s like driving a bus. You can either sit at the wheel and wait for the bus to take off itself….. or you can start the engine, put the indicator on and head in the direction you want to go. In each instance, your reaction to being at the wheel will determine your destination.
Have an awesome week!
