When the wind blows some people build walls. Others build windmills…..
How do you deal with what life throws at you? Do you build a wall and cower behind it? Or do you take advantage of the opportunities that come your way take control and, like a windmill, feed off the energy created by the wind in your sails?
The key to success is being flexible and brave enough to recognise opportunities that come your way and act on them rather than letting them float on by for someone else to grab.
Start making your own luck by learning to be more spontaneous in your reactions to new challenges. Don’t be afraid to fail. It is only by trying and failing that we learn and earn our success. As Winston Churchill said, ” Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm” and he seemed to be fairly successful!
Even a small change can reap big benefits.
Look with fresh eyes
Feel where you are blocked or stale.
Try something new.
Start with small things and experience the difference.
Then you’ll see the more important changes
and you’ll make then naturally
