Who inspires wins

Butterly and chrysalises

In a churning world we cannot know what will happen next: an opportunity might turn out to be a threat; a strength might turn into a weakness; a chrysalis might turn into a butterfly. In a churning world, there are no absolute strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, or threats: there is only what happens and the ways we choose to respond.

This means that what drives success in a time of change is our ability to find the new possibilities that are emerging and execute a path to reach them.

And in a world where all ways forward are likely to be difficult, what drives success is our ability to inspire ourselves and others to long to make our chosen outcomes happen.

In a churning world, who inspires wins.

What challenges are you facing today? How inspired do you and the people around you feel about creating the outcomes you want? What would happen if you described those outcomes in a more inspiring way? Or if you chose a new goal that inspired you more?
