S:0746 Principle: Change the Beginning

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

 

Would you agree that when you begin something it causes outcomes to occur? This is true whether the beginning is to do or not to do something. Outcomes always follow beginnings.

So, what if you are in the middle of an outcome which is not desirable? What to do?

Change the beginning.

No, that does not mean go back in time and make a change. It does mean to learn from what has transpired as a result of the original beginning and then realize that right now is a new beginning. In order to get a different outcome, change your current beginning.

It’s easy to believe that the course you’re on (as a result of a previous beginning) must continue to play out. Not so. Always be willing to change your beginning, the actions you take or don’t take right now.

It’s difficult to change the past. It’s easy to change to a new beginning.

 

Coaching Point: What is one thing which is not going the way you want it to? What new beginning can you change?
