The glass is not empty until you accept that it is empty. Your reality is based on what you believe about you. The circumstances surrounding you are not the only reality. The reality that will make you successful is based on your philosophy of life. What is your philosophy of life? Do you see yourself as a victor or a victim? Yes! How you see yourself will determine how successful you will be in all areas of your life. If you keep saying, you can't then you can't. That business idea will never get executed. That exercise goal will never be met. Start believing you can.
Your expectation determines how you respond to the empty glass and your response determines the action you take. If you think somebody owes you something and that you are entitled to a full glass you will be tempted to grumble and complain. The sad thing is that you will miss the opportunity that the empty glass is presenting. The opportunity is that of filling the glass with any liquid of your choice. An empty glass is a challenge for you to rise up and take charge! Until you do that you will not excel in your endeavors.
The challenge is not that you have been given an empty glass. Your preconceived notion about an empty glass is what is standing in your way. Your reaction to the emptiness of the glass is what is preventing you from maximizing it. An empty glass will remain empty so long as you focus on its emptiness. The moment you start realizing the potential in an empty glass is when you will start leveraging what you are already having. What you have is what you have; the only way to succeed is by using it. You do not need a better team, make yourself better and the team will become better. Why not start with your own attitude about the situation?
According to John Maxwell, "You can have people skills and not be a good leader, but you cannot be a good leader without people skills." How are you doing with your people skills? Are you somebody people like to be around? Do people come to you for help often? To improve your people skills you must start believing in your heart that ALL people deserve to be treated with respect. Secondly, you have to believe that you can make a difference in other people's lives. Start filling the glass of your people’s skills today and in due season you will begin to attract people to you.
The IEM APPROACH is a holistic way of life; the physical and spiritual must be in synergy for real, lasting, and sustainable success.
