What a week. Isn’t it funny how we receive the exact things we need based on what’s been on our minds? This week, everything has just felt hard. I think it’s the cumulative effect of so much change and uncertainty that after a while wears you down. And with Ireland gone back into level 5 lockdown coupled with some really busy work weeks, I was really feeling it.
Then, something great happened. I attended my first real live event in a while (yes there were other humans there!) and the speaker was so inspiring and reminded us all that business and life is extremely challenging. He played us a video of an interview of Elon Musk describing being an entrepreneur as like “staring into the abyss while eating glass” – gold!
So often we compare our bad days with someone else’s highlight reel that it’s nice to get a reminder that good things take time.
The presenter also spoke about Stoicism which was such a great reminder for me to pick back up “The Obstacle is the way” which I had abandoned when I got super busy a few weeks ago. If you google Stoicism quotes, there are some gems there to get you through tough days. It’s a great reminder to be present and just deal with what is in front of you at any one time.
So, even though I have lots of value to share with you this week to help identify your brand archetype, I wanted to also preface it with this:
If you’re feeling tired and burnt out – it’s OK.
If you’re having a low day and just need to take some time out – it’s OK.
You are not alone and things will get better.
The messages I was left with yesterday were:
Trust the process and trust yourself
Accept what is rather than being disappointed when things don’t work out the way you expected them to
This really helped me yesterday so I wanted to pass it on and hope it may inspire you too. Doubting yourself is normal but letting it stop you is a choice.
