Quote Roulette #6

“When it comes to leading people, there is no problem that is unique to you. Ask anyone with experience, and you’ll discover they’ve faced the same issues, the same frustrations. So don’t feel sorry for yourself. That’s a waste of valuable time. Just make plans to make things different.” – Tony Pearce

The first one that jumps out to me from the above is no problem I have faced is unique to me. We are faced all the time with things that we think no one in the world has ever gone through. So, we never reach out to others for advice and continue our miserable slog through misery until we splat or quit. When in reality, somewhere, sometime, someone has gone through exactly what you have. I built this very blog on the foundation that I could be that person who has been there before so you could learn from my failures or successes.

The second one I love is not feeling sorry for myself. Difficult to do after you have gone splat. Difficult to pull out of it when you’re stuck in it. Finding that person you can connect with and share with is a key. But that requires self-awareness and willingness to create a plan of action. Wasting to much time in this place of sorry town, will never get you to that next milestone on the map. I think about a posture of placing ourselves in a mode of constant and consistent readiness for what we want to feel or be different as a way to achieve movement. We have to get out of our way with our own feelings of despair. We need to make plans and pour the energy into that versus the negative mindset of feeling sorry for ourselves.

Each sentence in Tony’s quote is a call to action. I love it. I hope you do too. Good luck with 2019 goals. I believe and I am confident if you can think it up, you can achieve it!
