Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
Sir Winston Churchill
British politician (1874 – 1965)
I would like to say he was or is one of my Heroes, but not sure if that is a popular thought to voice out loud nowadays. Well, too late now, I have said it. I had such an unsettled week at work that I lay awake at night ( most unlike me) and thought about giving it all up. I thought about packing a case and going on a Road Trip. I thought and thought…about running away!
And that, of course is why I cant sleep. A few obstacles at work and I am ready to give up. But aren’t there only so many mountains you can scramble up ? So many flooded rivers you can brook and so many punctures you can mend?
This, my father tells me, is the consequence of “ be careful what you wish for!” . In other words when I set out with my business I grew it and grew it and then, one day for no reason other than its ” your time”… you hit a bump in the road. Your slightly flushed with success and invincible mood is ambushed and your negative one takes hold.
Now its nothing terminal and I daresay come Monday I shall be back on the horse but sometimes, occasionally, you need to dismount and put the said horse back in the stable. So today I have stayed in bed and vegetated. I might not get up until lunchtime, or indeed until I am hungry at least. I hope I can shift my mind set come Monday.
Until next time……
