Who inspires wins

In a churning world nobody knows what will happen next: a strength might become a weakness, a threat might become an opportunity, a wildfire or a flood might happen next door to you or a thousand miles away, a chrysalis might turn into a butterfly.

In a churning world, all ways forward will be difficult and nobody can tell what the outcome will be.

In a churning world, what drives success is no longer the ability to do the same as what worked in the past, but better.

So in a churning world, what drives success is first our ability to find the new possibilities that are emerging and then our ability to inspire ourselves and others to long to make one of them happen.

The more inspiring your vision, the more you will attract people to it, the harder they will fight to overcome the challenges that arise, and the better the results they will achieve.

In a churning world, who inspires wins.

How inspired do you and the people around you currently feel about the goals you are working towards? What would happen if you felt more inspired about achieving them? What would happen if you found a goal that inspired you more?
