Life goes on1 min read

Our country has seen some monumental and historic changes recently. Last week, the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series in over 100 years. And this week the country elected a new President. Life goes on.

Whether you are celebrating a big win, or wallowing in defeat, we will still wake up. Our children will go to school and we will go to work. To spend our day discussing what would have been, or arguing with opposing sides is counterproductive to building a winning business.  Our reaction won’t change the outcome. Life goes on.

Business and life never go exactly as we plan. Sometimes you may feel that you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, and you will be! However, if you believe that you are in the right place at the right time, you are. When you decide to step up, show up, take control of your business from inside your four walls, get clear on your message, and empower your team, you can and will build a very healthy business that can support all your dreams. Life goes on.

There is a famous quote that states, “When you can’t change the direction of the wind, adjust your sails.” Today, instead of allowing the Presidential election to become a distraction in your business, rally your troops and discuss how you can adjust your collective sails to adapt to the outcome. Your customers and your team may react to how you handle this change in our country. They are watching you.  Only you can decide how you will conduct yourself today and show that life goes on.
