It’s Monday morning and you’re either excited to win the day, secretly dreading what’s ahead, or paralyzed because you’re unsure about what to do next.
If you fall under the last two, I want to encourage you today.
Thirtyfive years ago I was working at a sweatshop in Los Angeles. No air conditioning. Just an industrial fan sitting on a large window of a sweltering warehouse where dozens of Asian and Hispanic seamstresses constructed silk blouses.
That 105-degree, humid summer Monday morning I’d work another twelve hours armed with my tiny scissors in hand to start the day. One of my jobs was to collect the finished blouses from large bins. First, I’d cut off the leftover pieces of thread. Then I’d hang them on hangers, steam them, and cover them with garment plastic.
That last part I dreaded most. Plastic everywhere around me, sticking to my sweaty arms, legs, and cheeks.
At the end of that fateful Monday, after I counted my pieces and collected my $27 bucks for the day, I made a decision. No more!
That’s the day I remembered my late father’s words:
One move can change the momentum of the game.
I never went back. I decided to ignore that my English was terrible and mustered the grit inside me to change the trajectory of my life… one move, one day at a time.
What I know is possible for YOU today is exactly that. This morning you are one move—one choice—away from changing the trajectory of your day, your week, and possibly your future. You can choose to…
- Say no to something that is dragging you down
- Say yes to something that scares you but can yield tremendous dividends
- Take massive action on something you’ve been putting off
All of the above are power moves that are yielding bigger businesses, better relationships, greater profits…
You have more power than you think. Take that power today and win the day!
