It’s easy to point the finger. But what makes us stronger is taking responsibility for our role in success (or lack thereof).
If we’re stuck, how did we get here? And what is it going to take to get unstuck?
Chances are, we didn’t get here overnight, and we won’t get there overnight either.
The pivotal moment comes not just when we’re able to take an honest look at ourselves, but when we’re truly willing to take that step away from what is comfortable.
It’s going to be hard. The labor is going to be painful, uncomfortable, challenging.
Especially when we’re still holding on to the history, the good old days, the golden years. What got us here won’t get us there.
When we get to the point that we realize that there’s some undoing that needs to be done, some bridges that need to be built and some forgiveness that needs to take place — that’s when the real work begins.
What do we want, going forward? And, if we want to get there, what are we going to need to do?
“Whatever it takes” isn’t a popular idea. But it might be the only way we turn the corner and change the trend away from the negativity toward a brighter, happier, more profitable future.
