It’s been decades since Albert Einstein said, “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” And yet, those words still hold true today for the life and quest of great entrepreneurs. Bottom line, challenges WILL come your way and the familiar phrase “@#%& Happens” will, no doubt, hit you at some point in your journey. The secret behind GREAT leadership, however, is to know how to get up out of the rut of adversity, hit the reset button and move forward with a bright and fresh perspective. That is why it’s time to make shift happen!
Whether it’s the pain of divorce, abuse, financial crisis, injury, business failure, or the loss of a loved one, EVERYONE will have moments where setbacks occur. But when you have a setback, don’t take a step back, but SHIFT into your comeback. Sometimes it’s the very set back that sets you up for your next season of greatest impact.
If you have faced adversity, the key is: Don’t sit in the “pit”. GET up and SHIfT your perspective, behaviors, and modalities so that you move from the pile to the palace as quickly as possible. If you hope to achieve anything great in life, SHIfT will have to become a daily part of your core competencies in business, family, and life.
Growing up, I was a preacher’s kid. I came home one day, using the “S” word unknowingly for the first time, and that is when I was introduced to “soap on tongue” discipline. Having my mouth washed out with a bar of soap left an indelible imprint on my taste buds that made me never want to use that word again…….till now.
The reality is, life throws us some pretty fierce curve balls when we least expect it. All too often, however, we have not been prepared to swing the bat and turn those curve balls into a home run hit for our future. There has never been a better time than NOW to hit the RESET button of your life! By looking at your past, we will find clues to sculpt your future. The very things that have stood in the way of your ability to create lasting wealth will soon become the stepping stones to your most productive days ahead.
