Had a great dinner last night with a client. He made a statement which stuck with me the rest of the night:
"Nothing happens by chance. I have had a number of successes in the past which paid off in more ways than one and none of them were by chance. Never believe that part about 'being in the right place at the right time'; there is no such thing. You were where you were by choice, you considered your options and took action. Everything was due to planning and free will. Take responsibility and take credit for all the good things you have done in your life".
Wow. How many times do we chalk good things up to Luck? Fate? Coincidence?
We beat ourselves up for past mistakes and missed opportunities - but leave good things to happenstance? What is wrong with us.
Take responsibility and credit for all the good things you have done and are doing in your life today.
