I was sent this lovely story in the post recently from Mr. Goldfinger who attended a presentation that I did at the Clemenger Auditorium in May for Latrobe University; on the ethical transformation of business.

As I have so often done I mentioned that my personal motto is “If it is meant to be it is up to me.” I take responsibility and accountability for all aspects of my life. Including my moral compass and my well-being.

This is the story that Mr. Goldfinger cut out and sent me:

“When I was 10 my teacher asked us to write up a sentence that made sense but the sentence could only be made up of ten words, and each word could only have two letters. We tried and we tried and came up with nothing. My teacher then wrote on the board:

“If it is to be, it is up to me.”

That day my teacher influenced a classroom full of children to think and behave differently, not just in that moment but for the rest of their lives. It was my first lesson in influence and leadership and I was hooked.”

So true – and now I will share it widely. Thank-you.

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."

 

Thank you! We have received your information
