What’s Your Destiny?

I set myself some business goals for this year and in order to meet them, I’ve been making the most of all the training opportunities that have been coming my way so far this year. I’ve subscribed to a free Business Promotion Basics course which comes to my inbox, downloaded some ebooks on specific aspects of online marketing (and read some very interesting stats about Facebook usagefor B2B and B2C businesses) and tonight I’m going to a free marketing workshop put on by my local council regeneration unit.

Last week, I joined the latest training call from the Barefoot Books training team.  Unlike the training I listed above, this one was tailored specifically to help me and other ambassadors in our Barefoot businesses.  Last week’s was about planning to meet our personal and business goals this year and I found it really motivating.  One thing that was said on the course struck a particular cord with me:

It is choice, not chance, that determines your destiny.

It is so easy to credit someone’s success to luck.  They were in the right place at the right time is often said of successful people.  Perhaps luck does play a part, but not nearly so much as the hard work they put in to what they do.  As Samuel Goldwyn said

The harder I work, the luckier I get.

So, how about you?  How you are planning to meet your goals this year?

  1. certainly makes the mind wonder does it not.. love the quotes might have to steal one or two 🙂

  2. I need to decide what I want my destiny to be before I can work to get there. I’ve been listening to the little pinpricks of envy I get when somebody has a really great opportunity/success. I think those pinpricks will lead me in the right direction. For this year I’m going to show my face at the gym most days of the week until I get a job teaching yoga. They can’t forget about me if they see me every day!
