January 20, 2016, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Balanced Conviction

By Darrell Gurney | Blog

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” –Henry Ford

Most of us are familiar with the children’s book about the small, unassuming and apparently ill-equipped engine that saved the day by getting toys to children over a steep hill.

It was a hill which other engines, perhaps more suited for the task, were either too arrogant, grandiose or self-deprecating to tackle.

Yet, balanced inside the ego extremes of the others, and with a moment-by-moment generation of determination, the little blue engine triumphs.

We all have our respective “children over the hill” to deliver our promise to this week, this month, this year.

What ideas or edges of over-confidence or supposed incompetence can we let go of to save the day?

Got balanced conviction?

“I think I can, I think I can.” –Tillie, The Little Engine That Could
