Quote by Trisha Yearwood.
It’s an ironic quote for me today as my current aim is to be more focused / disciplined and to use my time a little better, so reflecting on Trisha’s quote at first could make me think ‘bugger that it will happen anyway’… But I think there is a more to the quote than we realise – to make things happen in the first place we need to challenge ourselves and they may not always work out how we’ve planned.
Recently I seized an opportunity to go for a promotion and although I wasn’t selected I learnt a lot. I learnt that I believed in myself and that’s an important quality, I then learnt that the candidate that did had a skill set that didn’t interest me which meant that I probably didn’t want the role anyway haha, that it wasn’t for me and may be it was a lucky escape…loved ones reminded me that ‘better things were coming’ and I was kindly reminded how supported I am. I wasn’t looking for promotion at the time but by taking a risk it’s made me analyse my future, next steps and perhaps new horizons – not bad for an event that at first I thought had gone against me.
Hopefully in the next few months things will work out even better so that I can update you. I trust that things will work out well for me and my family…trust is an important element to this quote, but don’t underestimate action. If I hadn’t of taken a risk, I wouldn’t have learnt, developed or opened doors for the future. Things can’t happen (even if they are meant to) if you are present to collect them.
This week, take calculated risks that open doors and don’t worry if what’s behind the door isn’t what you first thought..if it’s meant to be, it will find a way.
