How many times has something happened that you thought was just so bad and then after the fact realised it actually was good?
No, I haven’t lost my mind just yet, I’m trying to point out that there are times in life that something happens to us all where we just feel that it’s the end of the road to the end of the world and have no desire to carry on but realise that the actual occurrence that set us down this path turns out to be a really good thing.
What I’m trying to say here is that the things that happened in the moment really seem bad for example you’re driving and you are late for work and you get a flat tyre!
End of the world right?
What if I tell you that if you had been on your route and on your way to work on time and as you turn the corner a truck that has lost control came careering through a red light and would’ve hit you.
All of a sudden that flat tyre doesn’t seem so bad right?
We don’t know why things happen to us and because preventing them from happening but it is the moment that the thing or occurrence that happens and what we do straight after that will define us both personally and in business.
So taking all of these “what if” moments and apply them to your business life.
In these challenging times that we find ourselves in at the moment. Remembering the whole world is in the same situation. What can we do to make the best of the situation we have in front of us?
A true leader rises to the occasion no matter what he or she has to work with.
When the sales person comes in to the office and tells you that you’ve lost your biggest account you have two choices: you can close the business down because you lost your biggest account and you now have no revenue all you go out and find another big account.
Now I know that big accounts are not just sitting hanging outside on trees right, I didn’t say it was easy, I just said there is another choice.
Be a leader that always finds the solution no matter what is thrown at you. Be the person that others look to in difficult times.
Most important of all, don’t make decisions based on the exact moment of something happening. Make sure you have assessed everything and looked at all possible outcomes.
