In life there are people green-lighters and red-lighters. Go with the green-lighters!
“Green lighters” are the ones you want to hang around. They will encourage you and inspire. They will show you the green light to succeed. They will open the doors of possibility for you. If you will struggle to come up with a solution, they will guide you to search for advice from more experienced or innovate the solution.
“Red-lighters” will focus on problems and why you cann’t do it. They will explain you why it is difficult to do what you are planning to and why it is safer to stay in your comfort zone and do nothing different. They may even spend time to search for scientific proof that the idea you have may or will not work.
How many times you had a great idea, but did not implement it because somebody close to you said “it’s not worth doing” or doubted your success? And how much empowering does it feel when somebody helps you to think through the solutions and implementation, despite the challenges in the way? Trust me – you want to hang around with the green-lighters!
You need to get out of the comfort zone to succeed and make a difference. There is never a lack of finance or opportunities to implement your ideas, only the lack of creativity. Learn from experienced and people who have succeeded. If you are the smartest person in your team or business, you will go broke. So – equip yourself with smart people in the team, with green-lighters and that will hugely increase your opportunities for success.
And – how about yourself? Be mindful of – are you a green-lighter or a red-lighter for people around you? Do people feel inspired in your interaction with them or depowered? Trust me, from my experience, it is much more rewarding to be the green-lighter!
Whenever I create an opportunity to inspire someone, I feel much more energized and inspired myself. To inspire and empower people is my passion. When you follow your passion, you generate empowering energy. Go with the green-lighters!
