Have you ever started something without any expectation?
Maybe you started going to the gym and then found that a few years later you’re still going to the gym.
Well, to my surprise and delight, that’s what has happened for me with the Weekly Thought.
I started writing a Weekly Thought to my database 11 years ago.
When I started I didn’t know how long I would keep going; that would depend on the readers and whether my thoughts were of interest.
And here we are 11 years later and I haven’t missed one single week in all that time.
I have to say, I’m impressed. I can count on one hand the commitments I’ve made in my lifetime and this is one of them.
Thank you for being part of our community.
Thank you for replying and letting me know which thoughts resonate.
Over the years I’ve had people tell me they’ve gone to work specifically to access their computer to hear what Shirley had to say on a Friday morning when they had an issue or situation to deal with.
I’ve had people give me great insights around weekly thought topics which have then made me stop and think some more.
Others have given me stories to share.
I’m just so excited to celebrate another year of thoughts.
I’m not done yet, nor is Infinite Intelligence, who often speaks through me, so we’ll commit to another year and see how we go.
As always, on the anniversary, I love to give a gift to celebrate.
This year one lucky reader will have the choice to either join my Leading Yourself and Leading Others Experience in Newcastle NSW Australia in September 2021 or one year’s subscription to our online Leading Yourself and Leading Others Membership. Both valued at over $5,000AUD. (You can find out more on my website under the “Get Shirlified” tab.)
For a chance to win, all you need to do is to click on this link and tell me in 25 words or less why you want to win. You have until 12:00pm (noon) Thursday 17th June (Sydney, Aussie time) to enter. I’ll announce the winner in next week’s thought.
So what’s the message today? It’s a great quote from Les Brown. He says, “You don’t have to be great to get started but you do have to get started to be great.”
What is something you want to start doing?
Just start, you never know where it will lead or how long you might end up doing it.
Good luck with your entry.
