“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be”. Quote by Ralph Emmerson a philosopher and leader of the transcendental movement in the mid 19th century.

Wow what a powerful quote that encapsulates how our everyday decisions shape the person/leader/entrepreneur we become.

I always get a little spring in my step when I remember I am the CEO of My Career and the architect of my life.

There is a great sense of freedom and empowerment that comes with knowing that I can make decisions to alter the direction my career/life takes and with that there must be a strong dose of responsibility, awareness and accountability.

It doesn’t matter if you are a CEO, a sole trader a corporate leader, a researcher, an analyst you can still be the CEO of your CAREER and the choices you make determine that person you become within your own business or within someone else’s business.

Yes, there are also many factors outside of your control, but it is how you meet those factors.

The above quote implies that we have responsibility to make conscious choices about the person we become. We can be and should be active participants in the decisions that shape our day to day lives.

It also celebrates the freedom we have in defining our own destiny and purpose. Within a corporation you can ask for a salary increase, you can ask for feedback on how to improve at your job, you can network strategically to become known in areas of the business that you are interested in potentially working.

Emersons words also suggest that personal growth and self-improvement are ongoing processes. It is suggesting that we be proactive in our pursuit of self-development.

This quote can also be helpful in times of adversity. When we need to lean in and face the challenges with a anti fragile mindset and know that we are strengthening our toolbox of resources each time we embrace a new challenge.

Who are you deciding to be today?
