Life is all about: to do or not to do.
You have to do things without being told. You also need to invest 100% in the efforts. Someone can add value to your work but you cannot add anything to your work by your own. Because, when you were doing than you should add it , who had stop you.? Another one have right to add as his/her criteria to see and judge are different.
You have to take initiative in the form of actions and start stopping the people for blaming them for the status of your life. Whatever is the status of your life is in total your accountability and responsibility. You have no right to finger out anyone.
Initiatives have power to add more energy in you and evoke more positive vibrations in your life. You can add more happiness to life and bring more value added services to life. Let me share with you a story which I used to share with my managers in the corporate class rooms. I find it , useful and inspire senior level people.
“Two sons work for their father on the family’s farm. The younger brother had for some years been given more responsibility and reward, and one day the older brother asks his father to explain why.
The father says, “First, go to the Kelly’s farm and see if they have any geese for sale – we need to add to our stock.”
The brother soon returns with the answer, “Yes they have five geese they can sell to us.”
The father then says, “Good, please ask them the price.”
The son returns with the answer, “The geese are £10 each.”
The father says, “Good, now ask if they can deliver the geese tomorrow.” And duly the son returns with the answer, “Yes, they can deliver the geese them tomorrow.”
The father asks the older brother to wait and listen, and then calls to the younger brother in a nearby field, “Go to the Davidson’s Farm and see if they have any geese for sale – we need to add to our stock.”
The younger brother soon returns with the answer, “Yes, they have five geese for £10 each, or ten geese for £8 each; and they can deliver them tomorrow – I asked them to deliver the five unless they heard otherwise from us in the next hour. And I agreed that if we want the extra five geese we could buy them at £6 each.” The father turned to the older son, who nodded his head in appreciation – he now realized why his brother was given more responsibility and reward.
Be the solutions to the problems of your own life. To lead solutions till the end of results, you need to initiate with risk and decision power. None is free from this chemistry.
