I found this quote … which goes back to motivation:
“If you really want something, you can figure out how to make it happen” — Cher
This is true for both positive and negative people …
A person in my life struggles with mild physical and psychological issues, yet this person usually figures out a way to be taken care of. If straightforward, conventional means don’t produce results, the next effort is manipulation. This ranges from leaving out parts of a story to outright fabrication. I have learned to not take statements at face value — they rarely tell the whole story. Out of respect for a shared history, I stay in contact with this person, but I now limit contact and keep conversations light. That was a tough, but necessary choice. People have the right to live as they choose — and you (or I) cannot rescue them.
Yet I still believe when honest effort, and honorable intentions, blend then good things happen. Motivation intertwines with innovation. Just move the self-imposed roadblocks — and amazing changes will happen. Good to remember … for business and life!
