Do you lead your life, or accept it?

Setting up for goalWe talk about people ‘leading their lives’.

Do they?

I think more often people ‘accept’ their lives rather than ‘lead’ them.

Do you get up in the morning and say, “I wonder what today will bring?”

Or do you get up and say, “Today I will…”

Put a sticky note by your bed so when you wake up you are reminded to notice your mindset.

Are you accepting the day ahead, or setting out to lead the day?

Leading the day is part of the art of getting your goals.

My best wishes, Paul
