Two Ways To Show Up

“Be careful how you interpret the world:  It is like that.”

— Erich Heller

There are two ways to show up. Because you have to or because you want to.

Yin and Yang

There are two ways to act after you showed up. Like you have to be there or like you want to be there.

There are two ways to think about it after you showed up. As if you had to be there. As if you wanted to be there.

We may not always want to show up to an event, a fundraiser, or another day at the office. But we don’t have to act like we don’t want to be there.  And when it’s done, we can thank our lucky stars that it’s over. Or, we can find ways to want to be there again, and make it better.

It’s our choice. In everything.

Yesterday’s gift of time … Filled roles at Silicon Forest Toastmasters‘ weekly meeting because I wanted to be there … Started a website for Feedbackers Toastmasters because I want it to be a successful club.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
