“I realized that for IBM to become a great company it would have to act like a great company long before it ever became one” Tom Watson, Founder IBM
There are 3 principles that are certain to help you get to your desired destination:
1. See that destination
2. Believe you can achieve that destination
3. Act now in ways that will best determine that outcome
When you begin to adjust your behaviour now to look like your future you begin living it before it becomes reality. This will determine your reality.
If you have ambitions to become a director in your company but never hang with senior staff and talk about the ‘them and us’ you will remain one of ‘us’.
If you know how to bridge the junior and senior levels in your talk and behaviour you will become one of ’them’. One of ‘them’ doesn’t talk of ‘them’ and ‘us’ but ‘we’. ‘We’ are comfortable connecting at all levels appropriately.
What are you going to do today to determine the future you see?
“Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
