Life is full of unexpected turns. We have losses and wins that change the course of our lives. Sometimes we learn new things that become a catalyst for new actions. Other times setbacks put us in the corner and we have to work our way out. Either way, life doesn’t passively let us sit back and watch the world spin.
So, here we are thinking about what to do next with the shambles of the year 2020. We still have four sweet months of 2020 left. Some will deal with S.A.D. others will enjoy the season change and bundling up a time to hibernate. But now is a great time to look back on your intentions for 2020. I am willing to bet shit didn’t pan out the way you would have wanted. There are two reasons for that. The first is your commitment to the intentions or goals you set. The second life had curveballs and you struck out. And if you are the rare person that all went according to plan, congratulations, but you might have set your goals too low.
Do you want to know who I write this blog for?
This blog is for the people like me. The ones who suck at keeping their shit going. The ones with some optimism and ambition but need a boost every now and then. People who might use the little insight that I have and turn it into their success strategy. There is nothing new that I write or say, my goal isn’t to be the originator of thought. I write with the intent to inspire people to be themselves, embrace adversity, and to enjoy the journey of life. For me doing this is about living out my nature. It is about doing what I am purposed for, inspiring the human spirit to live through personal growth. I write for people who want to embrace the hero’s journey of their lives.
Back to 2020 and our previous eight months of crazy and a whole lot more ahead. Here is my suggestion to you; find your tribe and build them up. I don’t mean find your followers. I mean find a group of people that you connect with. Invest in that group’s growth with your time and energy, give without trying to receive. By doing so you will get your own, “This is for the crazy ones.” campaign.
For me I like to consider my readers; arts, writers, business people, entrepreneurs, but above all that rugged optimists who enjoy growing and challenging themselves. If you fit that description or want to this blog is for you. We are the kind of people when life gets hard we grin and embrace the adventure because we know this is what life is about. Success for us is “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill because we know that every setback is a setup, and every problem is a chance to prove ourselves. When life gets in the way of our goals it is only asking us how bad do you want it?
