Plan B


June 10, 2009...

I was reminded today that when we create a Plan B before Plan A is evengiven a chance to breathe, we set ourselves up for failure.

It's true.

Napoleon Bonaparte once had his troops burn their own ships as they entered a new battle. He was said to have told his men that if they were to ever return home, they would have to go back in the enemy's ships.

Napoleon didn't allow for a Plan B to be planted in his men's minds. He took away the possibility of retreat...and empowered his men to move forward with even more determination. He knew that it's hard to succeed if you're looking back.

In thinking about a big goal in your life, which direction are you looking?
