Morning Cup of Joe – What’s The Plan?

There is nothing wrong with being prepared. Some may even argue that being overly prepared could be a bad thing; I would have to respectfully disagree. It truly does not matter to what degree you are prepared as long as you are prepared. The greatest difference comes with how you prepare, not whether you prepare or not. In essence, it is imperative that you prepare for the worst yet hope for the best.

When the weather center warns citizens of a town of an inevitable storm, they expect you to be prepared for the worst. A home that is stocked with non-perishable items and Hurricane shutters may fare better than the one with the person who thinks to themselves, “the storm may not be that bad so I’ll just wait until it passes”. We have countless examples where the latter way of thinking resulted in disaster. The point is, start making plans for your future. You don’t know what storms may head towards your direction yet you should be ready if and when they do show up.

You don’t have to get ready if you stay ready. Understand that those who are prepared for the worst, although they may not necessarily believe that the worst will happen, are the ones who will come out on top. You must condition your mind to think positively while preparing for the worst that can happen. How do you think most battles are won? They are won through strategy and preparation. How will you win your battle? You will win your battle in the same manner, by thinking of a strategic plan, writing down your plan of action then executing.

Remember, a plan is not a plan until it is written on paper. The power of the written word brings that plan to life. Being prepared is what winners do. Don’t get caught off guard by life’s storms; expect them. You have survived countless storms in the past and this one is no different.

To The Top!
