Is it coincidence or consequence?

May 7, 2012 – Is it coincidence or consequence? Do you view the good and bad things that happen to you as coincidence or consequence? If you believe everything good that happens to you is sheer luck and everything bad that happens to you is your fault, then you have made a critical choice that is at the very core of why you cannot get where you ultimately want to go. If you believe that both good and bad things that happen to you are sheer luck, then you are resigning yourself into believing that you have no control whatsoever. Everything you desire is within your control, beginning with how you think about yourself and what happens to you.


Take an MM&I Moment to reflect on both the good and not-so-good things that have occurred over the past several weeks. On the good side of things, honestly consider the role you played in making them happen. Don’t dismiss it as luck. Did you meet someone a while ago that resulted in this good fortune? Did you take action that created a domino effect of other actions that resulted in the desired outcome? Now look at the not-so-great things that occurred. Be honest in what truly was your role, what role others played in its outcome, and what was unanticipated. Then assess how you may have been able to shift or what you learned as a result of this less than desirable outcome. The most important way you can manifest even more of what you do want and less of what you don’t want is to understand your role in making things happen and having intention and focus to make what you want to happen. Your action of mind is as important as your action in doing.
