How's Your Perspective?
 
04:15
This week's Monday Motivation is a reminder about the importance of perspective. How you view an obstacle determines your attitude & actions. Look at David & Goliath. Every Israelite was terrified of Goliath. They saw the giant as an impossible victory. But not David. David had a different perspective - one in which he knew he would win - and acted accordingly. Do the obstacles we face in life hinder us and hold us paralyzed with fear? Or do we view them as possible victories?

Before May 1954, many people believed it was impossible to run a four minute mile. As soon as Roger Bannister broke that barrier, mental & physical limits were shattered.

I shared with my fellow entrepreneur that the to-do list isn't the key to getting it all done. This video's message is instead.
