MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“If you don’t try to create the future you want, you must endure the future you get.” –JOHN C. MAXWELL
Here's a strength statement for you today on Minute with Maxwell.
Hi, John here. I often teach people this statement: If you don't try to create the future you want, you must endure the future you get. I either lead intentionally, or as my friend John Cotter so beautifully said to me one day in a conversation over lunch, ‘John, most people don't lead their life, they accept their life.’ If I accept my life, I'm not creating my own future. I'm just enduring the future that comes to me. But the moment that I become intentional, the moment that I say, I have a choice, I can make a difference. I don't have to become a victim. The moment that happens within my life, I begin to create a better future for me. So, the question is, do I wait for good things to happen? Well, if I do, I'm just accepting my life. Or do I work for good things to happen? Which means I'm intentionally taking action to do my very best, to make the best out of something that isn't so hot. I hope that you no longer wait for good things to happen for you, and to you. I hope you begin to intentionally work to make them happen.
Thanks for being with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
