I noticed an attitude lesson when I spoke in Las Vegas and walked through the casino at the Mirage Hotel. I saw the roulette game and took the above picture of it.
Wikipedia explains that “Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning little wheel. Players may choose to place bets on either a single number or a range of numbers.
The colors are red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or if the numbers are high (19-36) or low (1-18).
No matter which way you look at it, playing roulette is a gamble. We’re hoping the ball lands on the right number so we can win.
When we don’t write down our important goals, we’re gambling that things will work out the way we want.
As an attitude speaker, I learned that we’ve got to change our attitude about our goals and realize that “for things to change, we’ve got to change.” It’s not the economy. It’s not the weather and it’s not good breaks. It’s US and our attitude.
If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to write down your 5 most important goals for the next 5 years. Then write down the steps you will take in the next 12 months and the next 30 days to help accomplish those goals.
Let’s make sure that the figurative roulette wheel in your life has the ball landing on the right number! That’s a productive way to take control of your power!
“I write down my goals, break them down, and take action!”
