Today was one of those days when life puts you to the test. My body was not adjusting well to all the temperature changes, my team had a long busy week, and an enemy has been working overtime to derail my peace. Moments like this can either make or break you. Emotions are flying high, energy is running low and the easiest solution seems to be- to just give up. However, quitting is not an option, not for me. Not for a Boss. I am a winner and winners never quit.
I had to take a deep breath and remind myself of all the great and wonderful advice I give everyone else in moments like this- “just breathe and focus on what you can control in this moment.” I began by reminding myself of who I am- reciting a list of affirmations I reserve for challenging moments: ” I am ambitious. I am resilient. I am resourceful …..” There are currently 58 affirmations on my list. Doing this helped me refocus my mind, reduce emotions and find clarity I needed for the task at hand. My team is looking at me for guidance, they have hit a wall on their ability to address the issue and it was time for me to #bossup.
Once I got my mind right, I was able to coach the team thru the strategy needed to resolve the issue and ease their concerns as well. I made some calls to set the plan in motion, delegated a few tasks to the team in preparation of the next steps in the plan. Emotions returned to normal, and we did what we do best- we win! Working together we implemented the plan and walked away with a higher level of confidence in each other and our mission. There is nothing like a challenge to bring out the best in you. Boss Life isn’t always about the cute posts you see on social media, it’s work- real work. The rewards are great, but they come after great investments are made. Don’t let the glitter fool you, it is created from a recipe of blood, sweat, and tears.
May you always remember your purpose and let destiny be your guide.
