That’s right. The story goes that inside a courtroom there was a really intense battle between the defendant and the plaintiff. The plaintiff told their story to the judge, and at the end, the judge said, “Wow, that’s right.” Then the defendant went up, and the defendant told their heartwarming story, as well, and the judge said, “Wow, that’s right.” Then all of a sudden the clerk looked at the judge and said, “Your Honor, they both can’t be right.” The Honor looked at the clerk and said, “Well, that’s right.”
The point of the story is is whatever you’re focused on, whatever you’re focused on in the moment is right. If you’re going down a path, you’re going down a path of disillusionment. You’re going down a path that’s empowering you. Maybe you’re depressed. Maybe you’re sad. Maybe you’re seeing things that just aren’t working right. This could be with an employee, a coworker, a friend, a family member, and a loved one. You could be seeing something in your relationships, in your body. Don’t a lot of us have this body dysmorphia, where we look at ourselves and you see yourself in the mirror, and all you see is what’s wrong. You don’t really focus on what’s right. What’s going on, what looks good.
Whatever you’re focusing on is right, and so choose to focus on those items in your day, in your day-to-day moment, in your now, that actually serves you to your higher purpose. That allows you to become the author of your own story. Choose your right. Now this is going to be in your body, in your mind. What are those things that are going in your mind, in your soul, your relationships.
Really, I can’t think of a better place to really focus on this subject matter than in your relationships, but also your business. As business owners, how often do we actually focus on what’s going wrong in our business rather than looking at what’s going on right or looking at the whole picture. When we just focus on what’s wrong, we actually put blinders on and we actually separate the whole reality of what’s possible from us.
Today, what I want you to do is grab your journal and write out what’s true for you. What’s right for you in this moment, and not what’s wrong. Then of course, what I want you to do is share this with three people. Share this with three people so you can grow your tribe and have conversations that matter.
That’s it for me today. Remember, go out and be the author of your own story.
