I am currently about to embark on a 6 month hiatus from work. I have a few things I want to do to keep me busy but ultimately I hope to spend most of time breathing in the fresh mountain air of Whistler, BC and when the snow comes to do a whole lot of Skiing. It’s a few weeks before a take but I as I sit here and write this article I am reflecting on how grateful I am and how I came to this position.
I believe that I can sum it up in 3 reasons:
Persistence – is the attitude to keep going, to pick yourself up after you have had a setback, to find another way round when you hit a dead end or to keep asking until you get the answer you want.
Willingness to Learn & Grow – is the attitude to ask questions, to challenge yourself and move beyond your comfort zone, to know what you don’t know, to learn what you don’t know and to surround yourself with people that are skilled at things you are not.
Think big and define the path – is the behaviour of always having the big picture in mind and defining each step and milestone along the way. I have a vision of what my life will have in store for me and each decision I make is intended to lead me there.
What are you grateful for in your life right now?
