Laurels

C669310 mHave you ever heard the phrase “resting on your laurels”? My crass interpretation was always, “sitting on your ass.”

I had another thought this morning when reading a photography book – “Sitting on your successes.”

We’ve all enjoyed success at something. The problem, as I see it, is keeping success in the past tense. Those successes certainly make for great stories, but do little to spur new successes.

What are you doing to be successful now? That’s a question that will engage your curiosity as to what’s your next success.

The fun thing about this is that it doesn’t have to be a big or monumental thing that you explore – just something that garners you success at something new.

Making new successes is making new memories, with new stories to tell, and a side benefit of rekindling of your vibrance.

Get “curious” about your next success; It’s the magic elixir that will get you off your laurels.

All the best,

John
