Last night I read these words from my daughter’s latest blog…
“I am choosing to celebrate where I am, instead of mourning where I am not.”
She is currently in a time of transition, preparing for the next phase of life. Truthfully, it would be easy for her to give into the temptation of wishing she was somewhere else.
I meet people all the time who are wishing their life away – constantly looking down the road to what lies ahead. For leaders, one of the greatest challenges is to stay in the moment. By nature, we are wired to look ahead … to push for what’s next.
As you begin a new week, resist the urge to focus on the future. Instead, relish today; celebrate where you are. Today is the only day you have.
My daughter’s words, “I am choosing,” are the key. If you will choose to celebrate where you are, instead of mourning where you are not, you will increase your chances of getting to where you are going with a heart full of joy.
Leadership Begins at Home,
Why do you think leaders have such a hard time living in the moment?
