On occasions a nugget comes through and it is exciting to read and share with others, especially in leadership matters. Today is one of those days. Nido Qubein said, “Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.”
There is much depth to this idea.
The tendency most of us share is allowing present circumstances to determine where we can go, which results in limited possibilities.
However, when we see our present circumstances as merely the starting point, the possibilities become unlimited.
There is something to the idea surrounding the “will to want to” when achieving the plans that have been established.
We must not allow our present circumstances to shape our thinking, direct our steps, or hinder our growth and development.
These circumstances must provide a launching/starting point for moving forward to achieve our desired goals.
