You've heard of moving on to Plan B, right? Well, the past few days, I've “one upped” myself and moved right on past Plan B and Plan C to the mystery of Plan D!
Go ahead! You can chuckle under your breath or “Laugh Out Loud” if you must. I get it! In fact, if I were the reader instead of the writer, I probably would too.
The thing is, as an entrepreneur you are going to just have some days that happen like this too! There will be some days where Plan A, Plan B, and Plan C go right out the window in a flash and you wind up with Plan D, if you have one, or plain old disaster, if you don't.
If you have a firm enough handle on your big “Why,” you will keep going when you land squarely on Plan D. You'll just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get going again. And if you can't, you'll get a hold of your mentor or coach, or failing that, a loved one you can count on to support you and suspend judgement while they give you a boost.
Today, I did a little of this and a little of that, and some of something else too, but I did not give up. I have a very good handle on my “Why,” a wonderful coach who is reassuring and supportive, while not banging me over the head about the detour of the day, and a family member who never fails to give me a dose of love and support, and even humor, to help me keep on going.
Just for today, I'm going to give myself a gold star for persistence and share a couple of doses of inspiration with you.
Every day is a brand new start. Yesterday is behind you and today is a clean slate. YOU get to decide what kind of day you will have! Now that may sound a little “hokey” to you, but truthfully, you can CHOOSE to have a good day, practice smiling by starting with smiling at yourself in the mirror first thing in your morning. You'll notice that you immediately begin to feel happier.
Try a little gratitude. If you can't immediately think of things to be grateful for, place both hands over your heart and feel your heart beating. Really concentrate on feeling it. Start right there! Start by being grateful for the beating of your heart which begins months before your birth and continues to beat hundreds of thousands of times, 24/7, for your whole entire life on this earth. That's a pretty good starting place.
Remember that life is 10% what happens to you and 90% what you do with it.
Know that there is always a next step, a next best decision, and as long as there is life, there is hope.
If you want to take ownership of your own life, be your own boss, and build the life of your dreams, be it all at once, or even a little at a time, there is help! I can help!
