Eric Liddell when asked how he came to become a great runner said, “God made me fast, and when I run, I feel His pleasure.
Even though he had raw talent, it couldn’t have always been easy for him. But Liddell was passionate about running and so he gave it all he had.
As we come to the end of this year, I find myself reflecting on the last twelve months and wondering if I gave it all. Like many of you, I chose a word for 2014 – tenacity.
It’s not easy, when you first start a business. You really have to want it to succeed and doggedly stick to the plan.
In 2014 The Other Bottom Line turned one, I had the pleasure of working with four clients throughout the year and I learned a tremendous amount about facilitating processes and working with others. Sure, there have been obstacles to overcome but I’ve really enjoyed it and am so grateful to my clients for the opportunity to work with them!
As is my custom I have chosen my word for 2015 – service. Do you also choose a word for the year? If so, what is your word for 2015?
I hope you were able to use your gifts and are satisfied with your accomplishments in 2014. And I wish you and yours a Happy and Fulfilling New Year!
