This past year has been tough in many ways.
My marriage ended.
Our cat died.
My cousin was killed.
When shit like that happens, it’s easy to wish that life were different. It’s human to wish this. It’s natural and probably unavoidable at the time.
But life isn’t different, so eventually we have to get to a point where we realise that wishing it were is pointless.
Certain things that are happening in my life are showing me the meaning behind some of those events.
I’ve realised that often we can’t know the meaning behind an event when we’re in it; it’s not until we emerge on the other side that we realise its importance.
So my advice to you if you’re in the middle of it; don’t worry if you can’t see the meaning now, know that it all happens for a reason and that reason will one day reveal itself to you if you are open to it.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
I used to be all about winning at everything I was involved with.
Many ‘entrepreneurs’ I meet just want to be the ‘big ideas’ person. They’re not interested in the little stuff.
In life people always talk about getting ‘ahead of the curve.’
Something had to get out of the way for everything good that is in your life.
We worry about things that might not work out.
We are all a combination of our experiences of the past.
We don’t need to detach from our painful past.
The you today is different from the you a year ago.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
