Resetting the Compass, the Final Day - Day 31
How fitting that on the final day of my compass resetting, Victoria Azarenka, who just this week became the number one tennis player in the world, was on Ellen. I had just written the title of today's piece when I was drawn to the interview going on in front of me. Ellen asked her about almost quitting tennis last year. Azarenka said, "Yes. I was quitting and then I changed my perspective and everything turned around. It was a pivotal moment." Then Ellen said, "Last year you were quitting tennis and here you are one year later, number one in the world. That goes to show it's never too late to change direction."
As I said, for me, today, how fitting. We must remember IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO CHANGE DIRECTION. We can change the direction in our career, our thinking, our relationships, our health...and the list can go on...but the important thing to remember is it's never too late. It's never a done deal. We can always turn ourselves to face a new horizon. We have the power within us to move ourselves either physically to a new job or home or emotionally to a new perspective or spiritually toward a calling we have been resisting.
Yesterday I learned there is power in tackling the difficult things life hands us. When there is a mountain in front of us, a change of perspective, a slight compass adjustment, unleashes a power we may have not known we possessed, as Azarenka found out.
And so, as the last day of January goes by, dare to nudge the needle, look at things from a new angle, discover the power you harbor within, and ...I have written.
