Ask Jonathan Sexton…
Most conditions we experience in life are affected by decisions we’ve taken somewhere, sometime.
How we’re thinking, feeling, behaving, at any moment, is who we are at that moment, and will influence our decisions.
Being Mindfully Aware that decisions influence our lives opens up all kinds of good possibilities. We can get very creative. We can start to choose how we see. We can select a viewpoint for a situation, a new perspective, and that can change everything.
A pending disaster can can become a spur to our drive, energy, imagination. Having our backs to a wall can galvanise forces, resources, talents, we never knew we had.
Necessity really is the Mother of Invention.
Manty people think in terms of urgency on a regular basis. They get things done. And even if the eventual outcome isn’t what they’d originally aimed for, it’s usually a long, long way ahead of where they started from.
That kind of thinking can be learned. It’s a skill. It needs a bit of practice. When we first acknowledge it, then act on it, it breaks the usual train of thought. That’s what reveals possibilities and lets the mind search for ways to achieve them.
Which is the Wellspring of hope.
Nothing is final. It’s never over till it’s over. Put that in your mind and hold it. It’s never over till the final whistle.
