When a project or business we are working on is successful, we naturally feel a sense of pride. Fair enough. But pause for a moment and consider which part of the success did you actually control?
Were the ideas yours? Or were they given…
Were the circumstances the project utilized your doing? Or were you simply taking advantage of the prevailing set of circumstances?
Were your customers your doing? Did the need or desire that arose in them, which you had a hand in fulfilling, come from you? Or were you simply acting as a resource to be used?
Was the energy with which you worked yours, or given?
