The one time former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina devised a plan for her life, it failed miserably. And she isn’t talking about her 2016 presidential run.
“The only plan I ever had was to be a lawyer,” she says. “And that didn’t work well. I dropped out of law school.”
Instead, Fiorina followed a path she says God laid out for her, a path that took her to the top of the business world. That path—and her faith in Jesus Christ—helped her endure breast cancer and a double mastectomy in 2009 as well as the death of her stepdaughter, who battled chemical dependency issues.
Most people think they need a plan for their life,” Fiorina told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of “Greenelines” on the Charisma Podcast Network. Instead of focusing on a specific destination, however, she offers a better way.
“What I’ve learned is if you can stay on a path, a path of personal behavior, a path of seeing the possibilities in the people and circumstances around you, a path of looking to solve problems and a path to change the order of things for the better, opportunity will knock for you and God will direct that path. Opportunity always knocks.
“If you are on a path instead of a plan, then when opportunity does knock you can have the courage to walk through the door instead of saying no.”
