Happy Monday, Christelle,

What does “chance” mean to you?

Here are a few definitions from the Oxford Dictionary:

  • a possibility of something happening
  • the occurrence and development of events in the absence of any obvious design
  • do (something) despite its being dangerous or of uncertain outcome

I used to see “chance” as something completely outside of my control, something that some people had a lot of, and others, not a lot… and, of course, I saw myself as one of these people who didn’t have much “chance”…

But my perspective changed when I heard this:

Chance is when preparation meets opportunity – Oprah Winfrey

And my perspective changed because:

  • Preparation: I could definitively work on that, be it learning, practicing, researching, etc.
  • Opportunity: I could work on that too, even if I didn’t have full control over which opportunities would appear when or where… I could network, keep my eyes and ears open, put myself “out there”…

What about you?

Empower yourself - starting with holding yourself accountable…

  • How are you getting on with the ONE step you decided to take last week?
  • Did you take a moment to ACKOWLEDGE taking that step?

And what about this week:

  • What’s ONE step you’ve decided to take THIS WEEK to get you a little closer to your goal?
  • How are you going to put “CHANCE” on your side?

What's new at Pistachio-Cassis Coaching?

Another of my articles was published by Brainz Magazine last week – this time, I’m writing about the “advantages and privileges” that being different to the others around us (our “uniqueness”) can bring… and whether we’re actually making the best of these “advantages and privileges”, when we have them…
