26 Dec Goals without Belief is not achievable! | How To
I have been on a Harry Potter marathon over the holidays at the Bala residence. My teenage daughter has caught the ‘harry bug.’ I confess I love it!
I have watched the entire collection before, but it is very different watching it with your teenage daughter, who knows every scene and has memorized every line! I don’t know about you, but I always find something new in Harry Potter movies every time I watch it – and this time was no different. During one of his many talks with young Harry, Dumbledore said, “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”.. hearing it again hit home differently this time. What a simple line, yet so full and deep with wisdom. I have been self-reflecting a lot over the holidays, and in particular, I was looking back at all the choices I (we) made since the pandemic.
- When bala.group lost all of the startups we were helping to incubate, we needed to make some choices
- When DESIFEST was cancelled due to the pandemic, we had to make some choices
- When Schoolio’s initial market shifted, we need to make some decisions
- When my client list dried up, I had to make some choices
It’s our choices, far more than our abilities, that make the difference in the life you have vs. the life you want. Looking back on the year, yes, we lost a lot, but in letting go, we found new ideas and new opportunities.
If this resonated with you, understand that the choice you make reflects your beliefs, and unless you BELIEVE you can have the LIFE YOU DESERVE, the choices you make every day will never align with your goals.
