Are You Waiting for an Invitation?
There’s a popular phrase that says, “It’s about the journey, not the destination.” Winning operates within the same framework. Can the journey of Winning be looked at the same way?
Championships are not handed out to the best teams on paper. The games must be played.
Contracts are not automatically handed over to the companies with the biggest portfolio. The value propositions must be considered.
Oscars are not awarded based solely on if you’ve won one before, or even been nominated. The scripts must be written, the shots must be filmed, the hours put in, the film edited… the movie watched, reviewed and reviewed again.
Every journey has a beginning and those beginnings initiate with an invitation - a pull to take the first step and then continue that journey when times are great with celebration coming easily and the stages where challenges arise and you make the choice to continue and press on.
This is the heartbeat inside the courageous chest of Winning. If Winning has a pulse, you can feel it in the pounding footsteps within your own journey.
Every person can move from waiting to begin to taking that first step.
Every person can take the next step when we feel stalled or stuck.
Both of those take place when we stop waiting for an invitation to journey forward.
So Where Do We Begin?
We’ve all been there. There comes a time when our plan won’t be further clarified with one more meeting or reading one more book. There is no better time to begin than right now. There is no better person to be passionate about what you are than you. There is not blanket instruction booklet for Winning, even if there was one, you don’t need it. If you think about it, really think about it, the issue we commonly face isn't about making a decision. It’s about indecision. Inaction.
The reality is that you have the ability and ideas to show other people the ways where the complicated and the challenging can be clarified and completed. So, take the next step. Act. Respond where you are invited to speak the word, take action, mobilize and venture into the extraordinary. It’s all about Winning.
At The Winning Network, we believe that people Win when they continue to keep going.
One of my favorite proverbs is an African Proverb that says:
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with other people.”
