I love this quote by Nelson Mandela. I feel the truth of it very strongly, but it is perhaps one of the hardest things to do.
When you are making your choices and decisions in your life and your business, what drives them? Is it your hope for a more abundant business, a happier experience, or is it your fear of something new, trading something that may work better for something that worked in the past?
For me, when I have based my decisions on fear, it has always left me “stuck” and pushed me further and further towards misery until I reached the breaking point and was forced to make a change. But when I make those choices based on hope and optimism, everything seems to flow, almost effortlessly, in the right direction.
Next time you are faced with a decision, take a moment to really evaluate what your decision making is based on. If it’s hope, charge forward confidently. If it’s fear, take a deep breath, know it will all be okay no matter what, and challenge yourself to move with hope. You won’t regret it.
