Whatever your barrier (situation or person) at work or in your life focus on moving yourself and not the barrier.
Some barriers are immovable and so your energy and hard work to make things better is wasted, causing great frustration and angst.
Pivot or slide but shift YOUR stance and you will be presented with a new vista that you never anticipated. A new hope. A new possibility. A new way through.
It will take courage, confidence, information and support so start to garner those assets. But this is to make you stronger so don’t waste these resources on moving the barrier.
Make your move and don’t look back.
The Story Of Two Wolves
An old Cherokee (Native American) chief was teaching his grandson about life…
“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
“One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
“The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
“This same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf will win?”
The old chief simply replied,
“The one you feed.”
