I’m sorry, there was never a free Yellow Lamborghini… However, there is a story about a free Yellow Lamborghini and it started on a flight to London. A few years ago, I got talking on a flight to a guy who turned out the be the head of investment services at HSBC South East Asia. We got to talking about education, coaching and math.
This guy had a really interesting spin on this concept. He asked me what my yellow Lamborghini looked like. Say again? “What do you really want in life?” he asked me. “Imagine it was a yellow Lamborghini but you had not yet figured that out. Imagine that a yellow Lamborghini roared passed a cafe you were sitting outside with a sign on the side saying ‘free to a good home’? Now imagine if you completely missed out on this opportunity because you‘d been engrossed in a book and didn’t even bother to look up because you hadn’t yet realised that you your ultimate goal was owning a vehicle like that?”
This guys point was that if you don’t know what you are looking for you may not be able to recognise it when it comes along — even if it’s as loud and obnoxious as screaming yellow Lamborghini! I loved this story and knew I wanted to share it with you guys as soon as it popped back into my head earlier today.
Have you got a yellow Lamborghini story? Maybe you’ve had just such an experience where you’d really dialled in on something you wanted to achieve and then you achieved it because you’d somehow set yourself up for the best possible chance at realising that objective? I’d love to hear it — let me know in the comments or message me here!
