and make the ordinary extraordinary

Choose You

I remember those feelings of imminent discovery. One day I’d walk down the street and my gifts and talents would spontaneously be seen. I’m not exactly sure what it was that they’d see, or who “they” in fact were, but they would see me and show me the way as they built it for me. Okay, it’s silly I know, we all know it doesn’t work that way, but I think somehow it’s a hypothesis that we tend to hold onto; like winning the lottery, but holding onto something that has never really worked is a road full of pain.

So what do you do when you discover that your theory is wrong, and waiting for them to finally show up and illuminate your way is far too risky a game?

There is a part of all this that is right, no need to throw the baby out with the bath water. A choice will be made, but you no longer need wait for your stars to align, because the one who has to do the choosing is YOU!

If I look at the way we built our business, no one ever discovered me, he or she never once said, “you are brilliant, I’ll build it for you”. No, the person who had to choose the vision was me. I picked myself everyday as I went out and did the work, one brick at a time. I held the vision when others did not.

Now others can see it, I’ve shown them the way; the vision in my head is out in the world. It’s obvious now that it works, but it wasn’t always that way.

If you can’t see it no one else will.

But once you have your vision don’t wait around to be discovered, back it, back you and choose yourself.

Because that’s the best chance you’ve got.
