I stared at my White Board of World Domination and lamented that most of the year is gone and I am nowhere near the goals that I set out to accomplish.
I watched the video of my presentation and bemoaned the image staring back at me.
I listened to the accomplishments of my friend and secretly wondered why her and not me.
I had a lot of ideas and a great number of thoughts but not many results . . . until I made the choice to be honest about how I got to my current state and what it was going to take to move on.
HOW to Breakthrough to Courageously Honest
- H – Honesty. Unless I confess my struggles, my mistakes, and even my weaknesses, I will not be in a place where I can get beyond the moment. I am more likely to slip back. If I want to see dramatic breakthrough then I have to be dramatically honest about this journey.
O – Open. It is not just about revealing the troubles but about being open to making a difference. It will always be in my court to create change. But I will never be in the position to make that change if I never become open to the ideas and the possibilities.
W – Willingness. Nothing changes until something changes and that action only occurs with my willingness to move. I have to step out, step up, or step around if I am going to break through the things that are trying to hold me back.
