It’s Possible Until It’s Not.
Imagine that you’re running in a 5k race. You start out excited and eager to finish. Each step seems to exert more and more energy.
As you round the corner, you think to yourself, “I got this.” You grab a water that is offered to you along the way and gulp it down to quench your thirst.
You round the next corner. There it is. The finish line. You know you can make it. It’s the goal you created to finish the 5k run.
Even though you don’t think you have anything left, you get a burst of energy.
You’re just 20 steps away, 10 steps, and then just 1 step away and…
It’s the last step.That last step is so crucial. It’s the last defining step between you and your goal that turns your possibility turn into a reality.
And, you stop just short of the finish line.
Wait, what? You stop?
One more step to go and you stop?
Far too often, business owners quit at the last minute before they break through. You tell yourself it’s too hard, it’s not worth it, or you simply don’t want to look bad. You get scared because you don’t have tangible evidence it will work out.
You stop playing full out until the very end.
I get it. We had the best intentions up until the end to launch our new app at our Wake Up Profitable Boot Camp.. I had people on my team busting through barriers to get it to work. Some barriers weren’t anticipated. Couldn’t have been anticipated.
It happens at some point in business especially when you’re moving to the next level. You’ll plan, you’ll practice, and you’ll play.
We played to the possibility of launching the new app, until it wasn’t. We asked for forgiveness (from others and ourselves), adjusted a new timeline, and set a new promise.
Lessons were learned. We learned lessons in patience, forgiveness, and tenacity. Lessons for a new level of leadership. Lessons for a new level of play.
Play in your possibility full out. Until it’s not…
