Defining your Future


I attended a meeting over the weekend. I had the opportunity of being addressed by a senior colleague, who I consider a friend and mentor. She’s simply amazing. Here are the excerpts of the address and hope it motivates you to define your own future.

  • Have a vision – continually ask yourself what your vision is. Write it down and stick it in a conspicous place, where you can put your mind to it.
  • See what you are prepared to see. If you focus on the negative, be prepared for the worst.
  • Seize the day and fulfill your dream or goals to achieve success in life.
  • Look within you; what do you feel? There’s never a particular age for excellence. YOU CAN CHANGE THE GAME.
  • Have an inner dream (ignite your fire).
  • Look behind you, what have you learnt?
  • Leadership is not definite within a particular stage.
  • Define what’s important and what’s not.
  • Struggle to be part of the top 20 (I mean acheivers).
  • Integrity is what and who you are.
  • Develop yourself (dont’wait for your employer- this is the biggest calling of leadership).

Finally, I leave you with this chinese proverb:

“If you want to plan for a year, grow rice; If you want to plan for 10 years, grow trees; If you want to plan for a decade, grow men” .
