“Whatever you seek, you find”
Recently I was in the park with my kids and we were looking at the clouds in the sky. Each of us pointed out a different cloud and we shared with each other what we saw in the cloud. In the same cloud I saw the shape of a dog, my daughter saw a tree and my son saw Spongebob.
I’m sure you have done this with your kids or perhaps when you were a child yourself. A group of your family or friends look at a cloud and everyone sees something different. The truth is that you can find in the cloud whatever you are looking for! This principle works when gazing at clouds and it works in your personal and professional life as well. Whatever you seek you will find!
If you’re looking for opportunity you will find it, but if you’re looking for a closed door you will find that as well. If you’re focused on the good in your relationships you will find it, if you’re focused on the bad you will find that as well. If you see your work environment as negative you’ll find it, but if you see it as positive you will find that also. In any situation, if you’re seeking to criticize, judge and find the worst you will, but if you’re hoping for the best, believing for the best and seeking the best you will always find it. Whatever you seek you will find!
What you seek is your choice. Here are some ways to keep you focused on seeking the best for your life:
1) Seek the best
In every situation, relationship and career look for the best. Wake up every morning with the attitude that you are going to seek and find the absolute best in every circumstance. Stop looking for the worst and start looking for the best…it is there for you, if you’re willing to seek it.
2) Seek opportunity
Opportunity knocks on everyone’s door…but only those who listen and are willing to answer will win! Opportunity for personal growth, financial growth and advancement in your organization is before you. All you have to do is open your eyes and see that opportunity is everywhere.
3) Seek to win
Most people are satisfied with “not” losing but they are not really trying to win. (Read that sentence again) They are satisfied with the status quo and are too afraid to take a risk. They have what I call the “Chicken Little” syndrome. They believe the ‘sky is falling.’ They have set their minds on the philosophy that they are not destined to win. Don’t be the Chicken Little. Seek to win in life and you will find it!
Keep this statement fresh in your mind…”Whatever you seek you will find.” It applies to every area of your life. It is a mindset. It is something you decide everyday that you wake up!. If you’re looking for the worst, seeking to criticize and ready to find excuses you will never lack in finding them. However, if you truly seek the best, open the doors of opportunity and be determined to win you will find that success will follow. WHATEVER YOU SEEK YOU WILL FIND!
Until next time,
