Believe and ‘Keep on Truckin’!
“There is no use trying”, said Alice; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.
“When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” (Lewis Carroll)
“Vision without execution is hallucination.” (Thomas Edison)
Too many times, we tend to give up when we believe we can’t achieve our goals. A Leader creates an environment of achievement, trust and commitment with the team that he/she leads. If there is engagement by all the associates, then everything the team does makes it believe it will achieve their goals. Remember the “Pygmalion Effect” discussed in an earlier post?
If it is within your own self that you tend to give up, don’t. Many achievements have been accomplished because the person gave it one extra step, an extra effort because that person ‘believed’ that the goal was near. Maybe not in sight, but near. As they used to say in the ‘70s, “Keep on truckin’!”
