I am not in Control

Professional Caddy, Michael Steele

I need to accept the new world order. I must alter my thinking or risk being swallowed up by the huge wave of change. I need to choose to deal with each challenge as it appears in our world. I cannot be happy until I concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world but what needs to be changed in me and my attitudes and my business

I am not in control

If I accept life as it is coming at me, look to change what I can, and put aside those things that are above my paygrade, I will be more focused, productive, and happier. Accept life as it comes and deal with it in the moment. Expectations of results build disappointment and resentment. The process is the journey.

I am not in control. I do accept the changes required.

In the past two months, the whole canvass of the earth as we know it has been altered. Sports is often considered a microcosm of the world. When we were forced to cancel professional and college sports it was a heart-wrenching loss of entertainment & excitement in our lives. Since that point in time, even more, changes have been thrust upon us. The canvas has become very abstract.

From professional sports all the way to our kids, nothing is the same. In fact, at one time these cancellations seemed important because they are part of the fabric of our daily life. Now, their importance, not so much.

I am not in control; I do accept the change. I begin to recognize the difference.

Golf and The Players Championship is big stuff here in Ponte Vedra, Florida. which has been my home for 40 years. The cancelation of The Players Championship and Tour events for the next 6 weeks caused real heartbreak and heartburn for fans, businesses around the area, and many millions around the country What can we learn from the multi-billion dollars organizations stepping up and accepting the fact that it is the right thing to do?

I am not in control of the world. I accept the change; I am in control of my response.

My business has transformed overnight as yours most likely has as well. My focus is to work those activities under my control and adapt, adjust, and reimagine my business execution model. My values remain the same, my mission to help talented advisors and successful professionals remain the same. My ultimate vision and dream are the same. I will continue to Redefine the Leaderboard for your success, life balance, and internal satisfaction. What has to change is my process and my acceptance of the situation.

I am in control of myself and my ability to accept and adjust to change.
Now I must pick up the ball and make things happen in my world.
Play hard, play smart, have fun.

In 1987 when the market crashed this debacle on Wall Street eventually gave me “my shot” to move to Institutional sales and bond trading desk. Institutional Sales and Trading were my true ambition in the world of Wall Street from the start. It was on the Trading Desk that I genuinely felt in the game. Working as a bond trader allowed me to build relationships with Wall Street firms on one side of the trade and our advisors in the sales branches on the other. Subscribe to The LeaderBoard Letter
