It is easy to have gratitude when everything in your life is working. When you are at the top, when you have a successful business, career, and a thriving personal life.
Call it “you’ve reached all your goals”
But what about your failures? What about the areas that you struggle with most?
What's your gratitude-level for those?
I hit rock bottom when I was at the very top. A full blown health crisis that actually took me years to be able to talk about, to write about, to allow the truth of who I am be visible. This wasn’t easy for me. I got here through the process of gratitude.
A deep commitment to leading my life and business at the highest level possible.
And a sh*&T ton of work. Both personally and professionally.
It might sound absurd to you, but I’m grateful for my health crisis. I’m grateful for hitting rock bottom. I’m grateful for experiencing complete darkness, denial, despair, grief, pain, and confusion.
Because through experiences like those I learned to make decisions. The really powerful ones. Decisions to not look back, but to look forward. Decisions on who I was here to serve and at what level. Decisions to build my life on my terms. Decisions on how to lead in the world.
Decisions based on what was a powerful NO
and what was a HELL YES.
Successful CEOs and leaders make decisions and they make conscious choices everyday, hundreds of times per day.
Hitting rock bottom WOKE ME UP. and I am grateful. Was it easy? NO, but I am grateful every single day.
I want you to hear this:
It is NOT easy to have gratitude when you have experienced loss.
It is NOT easy to have gratitude when you have experienced pain.
It is NOT easy to have gratitude when you are drowning in overwhelm.
It is NOT easy to have gratitude when you are spinning in the trenches.
It is NOT easy to have gratitude for income goals that you didn't achieve.
It is NOT easy to have gratitude for those who you know you need to forgive (especially when you were in the impact of their actions, or better yet...forgive yourself)
It is NOT easy to have gratitude for losing a client, a sale, or a big career opportunity.
It is NOT easy to show gratitude when you get the wrong clients because you settled for less than you are worth.
In business, you'll have peaks - (hopefully amazing, high-on-life peaks).
You'll also have valleys.
THE KEY IS TO BE GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF IT.
I know this is not always what you want to hear, but I’m hear to say it.
Write this down and put it where you will see it EVERY DAY:
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN CHOOSE WITH EASE…
IT’S AVAILABLE TO YOU FOR THE TAKING IF YOU ARE WILLING TO STEP UP...
BE RELENTLESSLY COMMITTED TO YOUR HELL YES's.
AND DO THE WORK FOR THAT LIKE A CHAMPION...
THAT WORK IS FULL OF ENERGY, INSPIRATION, COURAGE, VISION, DRIVE, JOY, STRATEGY, ENGAGEMENT, RESILIENCY, SOUL AND HARD CORE 7 FIGURE RESULTS.
I won't lie - It’s not always easy… But being a leader isn’t about easy: it’s about stepping into your highest potential to create your ultimate results and performance. It’s about doing what most people won’t dobecause they don’t believe it’s possible. It’s about creating an impact. It’s about experiencing a full life. It's about taking personal responsibility for your results.
Leadership isn’t just a model, a system or a program you can rollout and cross off the list. There is more to a human being’s life than competencies, behaviors, models, or theories. At it’s greatest,leadership is a lifestyle; it’s a way of being in the world. It requires a commitment to evolve and to be whole. Fundamentally, leadership is about service. And service requires being in touch with all the impacts of your way of being.
To truly lead in the world and create the results you want in all areas of your life, it will require you to create conscious shifts and become the leader of your future and those results you truly want.
