Undoubtedly, my favourite TV show of all time is The West Wing. It followed the staff of a fictional President in a fictional White House. The president in the show, Jed Bartlett, had a simple saying: “What’s Next?” He said it after every victory, after every defeat. He said it on the good days and the bad days.
I want to live with a “What’s Next?” spirit.
Because there is more. I may have messed up, let someone down but I need to step up from that and say, “What’s Next?” This defeat does not define me. It refines me.
There is more. I may have achieved my dream and be basking in the glory of a job well done but I need to say, “What’s Next?” There’s another level. May this success makes way for another.
You may be reading this from a position of defeat or success. I don’t know. But can I encourage you to ask this same question?
There’s more inside of you than you realise. Move on – whether that involves picking yourself up off the floor or jumping down from cloud nine, keep moving.
The future is the most amazing gift you have – unwrap it.
