Friday's Thought: Destiny
Anita Sharpe on Making a Difference

'To serve best, you should know what is unique about you (or your company).

'You must envision what the world would lack without your company's contribution. The result is your vision of your destiny.

'It is generally your values and your gifts that will help you generate a vision of how you can make a difference in the world.

'Once you discover your destiny, accept it and step into it. (Warning: Accepting your destiny may require abandoning a dream.)

'And once you have your destiny clearly in mind. . .go for it!'

-- Entrepreneur Tom Chappell (from Managing Upside Down)

'Accepting your destiny may require abandoning a dream.'

I think the interpretation of destiny can be as fickle as a butterfly trying to ride a chopped out Harley.

Does one feel destiny is mired in the predicament of their current circumstance?

Does one feel destiny is an express ticket to Oz on the Yellow Brick Road?

Or does one feel destiny is the Yellow Brick Road? For as you work your way along the Road you work the dream, growing to your potential with each step of your talent, skills, passion and desire.

Curt talks of reading something and having it stick in your head. This quote is that and more. I think it's more like trying to get gum off of your shoe - after you stepped in a bucket of hot tar.

This quote inspires a lot of thought, particularly the part, 'accepting your destiny may require abandoning a dream.' I imagine Chappell is referring to an inauthentic vision, as I believe your dreams do largely pertain to your destiny. And we tend to ignore those visions that we see every day but tend to ignore because they are too simple, too great, or too different from our realities.
