S:0819 Distinction: Results vs. Reasons

(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)

 

The old saying is, “You can have either reasons or results. And reasons don’t count.”

Results are real. Reasons are stories.

Results teach you. Reasons trick you.

Results create results. Reasons create victims.

 

Coaching Point: Do you want results in your life? Or to simply tell stories about why the results didn’t happen?
