To Go Where Your VisionPoints, a few inspiration points for you and your business.

Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
—Marilyn vos Savant

How many people stop running a marathon when they’re “this close” to finishing?

How many people give up on their Vision when they’re “this close” to making it?

The numbers are bound to be very different. Practically zero for the first. Un-countable, and possibly uncomfortably high, for the second.

What’s the difference? The ability, training/ working, and dogged determination are there in both cases.

But in the second case, there’s no finish line (in sight). When you can’t see where you’re going, sometimes you think you aren’t getting anywhere.

So when the going gets rough for you, do be realistic. Maybe you are on the wrong path. It happens. But maybe you just have a couple of yards to go. Spend some time thinking about it and consulting with your trusted advisors.

If it’s only a temporary condition, don’t give up (and make it permanent) when you’re right about to break through.


Grow and be well,
