Think about it.
There is no where to go but up!
Oftentimes we can be so down in the dumps that because we are sick and tired of being at the bottom of the barrel we pull out from within us such intensity and desire for change we astound everyone - including ourselves.
It seems to me that as we face difficulty, that is where change begins. That is where we make the decision that enough is enough!
This is where the miracle begins.
Here's an interesting point to consider. Most people don’t change themselves. They actually wait for change.
This group of people wallow in their victim rants. They never seem to suck it up and resolve to change. To take control of their life. They refuse to take responsibility and as a result never seem to get to that place of "having enough".
If you are facing a problem right now, don't fear. This terrible state you find yourself in is only temporary. You can and will rebound from this failure.
This too shall pass, if you dig deep and resolve to see things through. You need to pull yourself up by the boot straps and start to put together a "come back" plan.
It's funny now but in a difficult moment a while back, I didn't think my mentor's advice was correct. He said that I should be thankful for my current limitations or failures. He said they were the building blocks from which to create greatness.
Here's an example I absolutely rave about when talking to people who are facing what seems impossible in your lawn business
Think of yourself as a frog in a jar of milk. If you keep kicking and kicking and kicking, pretty soon the milk will turn into a lump of butter and you'll be able to jump out.
That's exactly why defeat can be good. We all have to keep trying and trying and trying. We've got to dig deep and make a decision that we are going through this and will come out on the other side alive and well.
Defeat can be good. At the same time, make sure that it’s working for your future not against you. The world makes room for those who know where they are going. Once you decide that your present situation is only temporary, doors will open to help you get back on your feet and move ahead in life.
I used to say, "I don't care." This is wrong when in a difficult place. We have to care. Keep your eyes focused on the successful outcome. Dig down deep within yourself and resolve to commit to winning.
Until next time...
