Show #19: Overdue Thankfulness
With: Deryl Sweeney
Topic: Overdue Thankfulness
I’m grateful that you read these emails, watch my videos and have been so supportive of my jump into the world of coaching. It would be impossible for me to do this without you. Sincerely, thank you.
But that’s not the overdue thankfulness I had in mind when I recorded this video. Instead, I’m referring to the hell that you made it through way back when. That point in your business when you were flat out miserable and all you wanted was to climb out of that hole.
I remember that period for me. Waking up at 3am every night. Creditor calls. Working for free so I could pay the team. Fighting, praying and searching for a miracle to save the business.
Spending two years trying to turnaround a cash-strapped business was the hardest thing I’ve ever done professionally.
I hated it.
I wanted it to end.
And then it did…
That was ten years ago. And here I sit, more thankful for the lessons learned over that two year period than in any other time in my career. I learned more, grew more and found out more about myself than I know would have been possible without the adversity.
So what situation in your life deserves your thanks for preparing you for the moment you’re in now or the one you’re about to step into?
Check out this video where I talk about overdue thankfulness and how to make sure we maximize the impact of some of our most painful experiences.
