If you struggle with ups and downs

If you struggle with ups and downs

My toddler didn’t want to put on his slippers to go outside this morning.

In the span of 10 minutes, I went from that “minor incident” to a full blown “What am I going to do with my life?”

Wow, that escalated fast 😅

In short: I was having a bad bad day (insert Despicable me opening scene here) when I recorded this week’s podcast episode.

I used to think…, no hope.., no yearn for the day that ups and downs would become a non-issue for me. That I could quite frankly flip them off in my rear view mirror.

I searched the depths of the internet and devoured countless ×-habits of uber successful people lists and video’s in search of the answer. Only to hear time after time that it doesn’t go away.

The fears, the doubts, imposter syndrome, visibility issues, triggers, the ups and downs in business and in life. They don’t ever really go away.

Depressing right..?

Here’s the good news though: They may not go away but you can learn to manage them so it’s less overwhelming.

Right now that may sound like a thank-you-for-participating consolation prize that all the losers get. But chin up. This is good news. Good news indeed.

Learning to navigate ups and downs is what builds resilience. And resilience is what we need to handle pretty much anything in life.
