Do Good.Take Credit.
“Do Good. Take Credit.” I remember hearing this from a mentor, Jim Hughes, founder of The Brand Establishment.
At first I just smiled however as the years have gone by and I have worked with hundreds of people I notice more and more that we tend to focus on what we haven’t done instead of what we have done, or perhaps continually move the success bar so it’s always just out of reach.
In Principle #26 the invitation is to “Acknowledge Your Positive Past”. There’s a great exercise Jack Canfield suggests:
- Divide your life into 3 equal time periods birth to your current age (i.e. if you’re 66 [birth to 22] [22 to 44] [44 to 66].
- List three success for each time period.
I hope you’ll take the time to actually do this and share it…Do Good. Take Credit.
