MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“Experience gives the test first & then lessons afterwards.” –JOHN C. MAXWELL
Welcome to Minute with Maxwell. I have a strength statement for you that I had given at a conference recently. I thought about you at this time, and I thought, this really fits.
Here's what I said: Experience gives you the test first and then the lessons afterward. You see, when you and I are taking the test, we're working through all the questions of life and experiences, and we're asking ourselves the questions: Can I make it? Can I just get through the test? I mean, can I live to see another day? After the test, we’ve got to breathe a sigh of relief and just say, I made it!
It's at that time, that we have to ask ourselves the question through that difficult time, through that experience, what did we learn? You see, your goal and my goal is not to just finish the test, it's to learn the lessons from the test. And almost always the lessons are understood on the backside. After any experience, negative or positive, I encourage people to reflect, stop, think and say, What did I learn from that experience?
Good luck. Start reflecting after the test. That's when you find the answers.
Thanks for joining me today on Minute with Maxwell.
