Even if you are a champion you are also human and it’s very easy to get lost dealing with problems, obstacles, and adversity in your life and business.
We are wired to be innovators and creators, and with that wiring there are challenges. No one promised that life would be a “Happy Ever After” story. It is just a reality that one of the conditions of being a human is dealing with problems, obstacles, and adversity. As entrepreneurs, we are always enacting on new goals, and the more complex those goals are, the more likely we will be faced with some type of adversity and blocks. Remember: the more YOU want, the more YOU have to deal with in the process of getting it. If success were easy, everyone would be wealthy and famous!
To be truly successful and resourceful, we need to address how we deal with life’s curve balls. We encounter obstacles daily. How we are skilled in handling them will determine the quality of life we enjoy. And, the strategies we use to capitalize on them will put money in the bank.
There has been a great deal of competition for attention these days and much of the roar from the news media of gloom and doom has been distracting to us and our businesses. My crystal ball is like everyone else’s and doesn’t know what the future will bring. Whatever is coming, keep this thought in mind: “It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult undertaking which, more than anything else, will determine its successful outcome.”
I have shared this famous quote by William James to remind you that we have had challenging times before and we have landed on our feet by overcoming problems, obstacles and adversity as entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals.
Allow me to remind you that this Champion part of YOU is strong, honorable, creative, curious, courageous, persistent, open-minded, logical and intuitive, as well as optimistic and willing to do the right thing to get the job done! We are Champions! We are the leaders, providers, suppliers of goods and services to assist others. We are the innovators. We are wired to be innovators and creators.
Right now under the current environment, it is easy to lose sight of your talents, abilities, skills, and wisdom and forget that our thoughts and actions create our reality and future. Our attitude affects everything and everyone in our lives. When we are in a state of clarity we can see our problems as just a temporary situation, that with new solutions we can overcome them. When we are in a negative mindset we allow the stress and problems to be bigger than they need to be, costing us money, time, and life energy that could be used toward your creativity or for making money and finding new products or services to assist others.
Life is very precious and changes on a dime. It’s your job to be conscious, aware, and proactive.
The truth is we all need someone else to listen to us, give us strength when things are not going well in our business or lives. I know from my own life that I have always been taught to pull myself up with my own bootstraps, but frankly right now I can see that everyone needs some moral support to combat the massive amount of negative news about the economy and our future. I want to remind you that you have the ability and the obligation to yourself and your future to simply change the channel and watch or listen to information that entertains or uplifts you. You do not have to allow the poison of fear to be programmed into your mind or environment. For all of you who are parents, you must step up to the plate and not allow fear to rule your life and affect your children. Your job is to be conscious and seek out people who uplift you and materials that inspire you to be the Champion that is inside of you! Being a Champion is a decision you must make for yourself. The other option is that you will be a VICTIM. I know you do not want that feeling for yourself or your loved ones!
