Does it hurt enough?

Does it hurt enough?

We all have a list of things we;

  • want to achieve
  • are proud of
  • keep quiet about
  • avoid

When we avoid tackling a challenge, a challenge that could be;

  • money
  • cash flow
  • poor performance from a staff member
  • addressing poor behaviour
  • letting a staff member go
  • cleaning up the office
  • getting your tax done
  • exercising
  • going to the doctor

No matter how much we try to avoid it, we know we are avoiding it and that it needs to be done.

It can happen in the first week, the first month, the first 6 months, after 12 months or years after that, but eventually they crack…

Working with my clients, inevitably there is something that they postpone addressing and it can hold them and their business growth back, significantly.

There is a process we call ‘growth’ and it takes please once we have passed through the tunnel of perturbation…

Perturbation is defined as being perturbed, anxious, agitated, disturbed and we become perturbed when we know we should be doing something or addressing an issue but for one of many reasons, we choose not to address the issue.

This story always reminds me about the process of feeling perturbed!

I was walking down the street and happened to see a man sitting on his porch. Next to the man was his dog, who was whimpering. I asked the man “What’s wrong with your dog” The man said “He’s laying on a nail”. I asked “Laying on a nail?, Well why doesn’t he get up?” The man then replied “my dog’s not hurting bad enough.”

The message of the story…

If you don’t like the way things are in your life, stop complaining and take some action!

Get off the nail!

Many of us say that we are sick and tired of the way our life is going. However, how tired are we really? If you have been trying to accomplish something for a very long time and you’re not seeing any results, you may have gotten accustomed to “whimpering” about it.

We can become addicted to our moods. Although we may not like being in a complaining mood, they are familiar and comfortable to us like an old habit. Knowing this is wonderful, because we have the power inside to change old habits as well as our moods.

Get off the nail! Stop complaining about what hasn’t happened and what you want to happen or who is keeping you from making it happen.

Get up, get out and make it happen!
