How did you get to where you are today in your career, business, personal relationships? Was it a result of careful planning? Did you sit down and plan, “This is where I want to be 5 years from now, 10 years from now, or at the end of my career.” Did you take steps to get there or did you let life happen?

What gives you a deep sense of satisfaction at work? Is it the insightful financial analysis, the perfect design for a new building, the client who says “you’re the best,” or the employee who achieves her goals.

We all have something that gives us that sense of, “YES, I DID IT!” When we spend time doing something meaningful to us we bring our whole selves to that moment. Indeed, that is what passion is – being in the moment fully focused on what is at hand.

All of us have moments of defeat, fear, hesitation, or failure. Even people who are successful in the eyes of the world have these moments.  A shot of optimism is like a coach telling you there is only one more lap, or that the tournament is best 3 out of 5, or that you only have two strikes instead of three.

A shot of optimism gives us an energy and outlook boost to keep on going. So take a shot, regain your composure and keep on truckin’.
