Excitement, Opportunity and Challenge


The excitement of opportunity and challenge inspires us to push for greatness.
When I was first learning to golf, chipping the ball onto the green was a challenge for me. I was out of control and inconsistent. My alignment was off, too, and I swung every shot around and to the left. I just didn’t know what I was doing. I took some lessons. The trick was to get the feel of tossing the ball: knowing the weight and speed required. It was explained that you chip the
ball up into the air and then it drops and rolls. There is the basis of what is expected, and now you have to practice.
When you know what is expected, you know what you have to do! It’s important!
I mention this because, a couple of weeks ago, a
friend of mine told me about a conversation she had with one of her employees.
She was sitting in her office when this young girl, fresh out of university, knocked on her door and then abruptly demanded to know why she hadn’t been promoted yet.
My friend was totally taken aback. In her mind, the “new girl” in the office had neither impressed nor disappointed her. She was too new, and nobody really knew what she was even capable of, let alone whether she would be considered
promotable.
Expectations!

It’s important to know what is expected and then know how to deal with what is expected.

Break down those barriers.
If you didn’t mindfully put your barriers up they are in the way!
