How’s it going over there?
Are you having a moment?
A moment that feels uncertain or like you’re playing the waiting game?
For many Americans this election season is creating those feelings. I know it is for me.
And while looking for similarities between this moment and the moments we go through as business owners may seem absolutely incomparable at best; it’s times like these that I encourage myself to remember what I believe to be the truth in tough moments that seem entirely different but still offer lessons that I may have been forced to learn in the past.
I share these thoughts today in love, and as an offering of peace.
No matter how you’re feeling in your life and in your business, perhaps you can use them (as needed) for any moment that causes you to question, to lose faith, or to feel full of fear and doubt about where you, or things, are headed.
I’ve found that waiting and uncertainty have invited me to more deeply reflect.
They also give me the chance to develop skills to stay in my right mind in the face of doubt and fear.
The challenge of not knowing throughout my life has caused me to get to know myself better; but only if I remain open to that possibility.
- What is really most important to me?
- Who am I becoming?
- How can I hold myself accountable to keep improving as a human and do better even if I get the result I want?
- How can can I adapt and keep focused on the things that I believe in and stand for them when things do turn out as I hoped?
What I know for sure?
The most challenging moments of my life have had the most significant effect on my growth as a human.
They have unearthed things that I wouldn’t have seen if everything had been easy and smooth.
They have awakened me from privileges that I would have remained blind to if I hadn’t been forced to open my eyes.
They have fostered in me an ability to trust the journey and develop resilience when I wouldn’t have thought I had it in me.
For that, I am grateful.
So for now, I’m being still and doing my best to witness the gifts of the moment.
In so many seasons, the dark path has eventually opened to something brighter, and so I’m holding that for us.
All my love,
