In tennis, the majority of the game is spent volleying.
I hit the ball, you hit it back.
This is like a lot of engagements in life.
I throw something your way, you throw something back.
So, who are you volleying with?
People who are negative and sceptical of what you’re doing? People who deny the facts (as you see them)? People who don’t believe in the work you have chosen to focus your life on?
It’s unlikely that you will change anyone’s mind. It’s unlikely to make you better. But if you volley with them you will repeat, repeat, repeat…
Perhaps you’re better to play with someone else.
You have that choice.
A while ago I encouraged my daughter Zara not to listen to a friend who wanted her to do something that she didn’t feel good about.
When we focus on a past that we don’t like, we are living in a state where we are hoping an imaginary future will heal a non-existent past.
Recently I was in a situation that wasn’t what I wanted, but there wasn’t anything I could do to change it.
Is it to never stop believing?
If you fill up every area of your life with little regard for the quality of what you’re filling it with, there’s not much room left.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
The thought of hard decisions is often worse than the consequences.
Some people bring magic into your life.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
