The Shark and the Goldfish

The shark and the goldfish: Positive ways to thrive during waves of change by Jon Gordon is a good read. This interesting fable about a goldfish who has always been fed and the shark who looks for his food teaches an invaluable lesson that in the face of adversity, the difference between a full belly and an empty stomach depends solely on your faith, beliefs and action. A recipe to attain the life you dream of consists of taking the following actions:
  • Embrace and ride the waves of change.
  • Have positive thoughts, beliefs, and actions.
  • To thrive, work hard.
  • Focus —> tune out distractions. Ask “What do I want in life?” and maintain focus.
  • Always improve yourself —-> don’t settle for being average.

A delightfully simple and easy read with powerful lessons in life.

So, it’s important to pause and ask: “Are you a shark or a goldfish?” and assess the quality of our life.
