The Young Vs. The Old — Possibility Vs. Probability Thinking…
When we are young, first starting out, we ignore all the rules, dangers, doomsayers and think with one of the most powerful words in the English language: POSSIBILITIES.
We look for OPPORTUNITY regardless of the risks. We judge the road ahead by where it might lead, versus the certainty of a well-established, known destination.
Clearly, we are far more likely to pursue the road less traveled.
Somewhere along the road, we start to become weary of the forks, twists, and turns. We start to think more of the destination rather than the journey.
Nothing will torpedo your chance at success faster than a poor attitude. You can have clear and tangible goals, with the best laid plans in the world, but if you poison the well from which opportunity springs, you’ve just killed your future.
