Persevere To Succeed

TAKE ACTION

It doesn’t take much to knock some people off of their game. Obstacles, difficulties of just about any measure are enough. It’s the excuse peddler I want to address here–“It’s Labor Day,” “It’s back-to-school time.” They use these to explain why business (or anything in life) isn’t good . I do understand that ‘things’ happen to us and to the economy and to (fill in the blank). But we can find an excuse for every day of the year. What if we tried just as hard to persist through the slow economic time or work our way through a particularly tough personal period as we do to find an excuse for it. What if we could use the tough time as a learning opportunity. Could that actually help us grow? Would there be a chance of finding a nugget of help or optimism if we actually looked for it? Say “YES Coach!” Athletes are an easy example here. Especially the ones who come from behind to win, or the one team member who seems to ‘raise his/her game’ to propel the team to a win, or those who change their environment so they can succeed. We can sit still and get clobbered. Or we can move forward, even if we aren’t clear at that very moment of where we may be headed. We can make progress. Oh yeah, and as we move forward it’ll be ok to change the movement or direction in order to succeed. But we have to take Action.
