Stop Drifting Along And Make Things Happen


by Kevin Watson



How often do you consciously make stuff happen?

The difference between those people that have great success and the rest? It’s when opportunities and success do not come their way, they make things happen.

This is the mindset you must have to be successful.

Let me ask you this question…

Ranked on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being never and 5 all of the time, how often do you allow things to just drift along?

Done that?

Good. Now, let me ask you this…

What made you give it that rating?

There are three kinds of people in this world: people who make it happen, people who watch what happens, and people who wonder what happened.

Tommy Lasorda

Given that score, what could you do to improve on that and make things happen?

Think, “what can I possibly do…“:

  • that would improve my current situation?
  • that would be imaginative?
  • to generate some new and fresh ideas?
  • to be more in touch with the important folk around me?
  • to improve my skills and grow?

Call to Action

Take time out for reflection, considering each of these questions and building upon them. Then, what other questions could you ask yourself to make things happen?
