In the last few years, it has become increasingly popular for people to share every little aspect of their lives with others. But, when it comes to getting what you want in life, keeping your plans to yourself is a powerful tool.
Presidents weekend has just passed, and when I arrived at my desk on Tuesday, I had two messages from clients that made me smile.
The first said, “I decided to spend my weekend practicing what I do in private so that I will be praised in public.” That’s something I’ve said and done many times.
The second client told me they had completed a new project over the weekend and headed in a new direction. When I mentioned they had never said a word to me about it, they said, “I know. I’m learning that nobody needs to know what I’m doing to do. I’ll do it, and they can catch up.”
My heart smiled as I witness three powerful tools that impact my client’s lives:
1) Practice in private until you are ready to share with the world. Nobody needs to know how you got so good at what you do.
2) There’s no need to tell anybody what you are going to do. Just do it and then let them know what you’ve done later.
3) It’s easier to get things done when everybody else is busy doing something else and isn’t poking their nose in your business. Long holiday weekends and summer vacations are a great place to begin.
You can do whatever you want with your life, and you don’t need anybody’s permission or approval to make it happen. Your destiny is 100% up to you.
