When building your profitable practice, you may have some tough moments. Remember this one thing to come back strong from a tough year. What do the roads look like in your city? A lot of people don’t have to travel far from their home to deal with potholes on the roadways. If your discovery of a pothole comes after you didn’t know it was there, you could have an expensive car repair on your hands. In the best-case scenario, they’re bothersome and mean added time traveling to your destination. Maybe you’re aware of these road craters. You know where every one of them is on the roads you travel frequently. You might accidentally hit them and cause damage to your vehicle or expertly avoid them. Either way, one thing eventually happens.
You move past them.
They’re just a temporary experience. Your encounter won’t last forever. You learn from the lesson and move on. Your car might have to spend a couple of days in the shop, but once it’s fixed, you can start to move past that unfortunate situation. In other words, you survive.
Bouncing back strong means reminding yourself, you’re a survivor.
Your car might not have survived during an encounter with a gargantuan pothole. It might have been too expensive to pay for repairs. Even if that’s the case, you are still here. You survived. You might have learned to do a better job of keeping your eyes on the road. If any lessons were learned or not, you’re going on with your life.
If you’ve had a tough time, a week, a month or even a tough year, remember that you’re a survivor. You’re here right now thinking about the problem you’re trying to overcome mentally, financially or emotionally. The fact that you’re contemplating some unfortunate event is a good sign. It means that you’re trying to move past it. As long as you don’t constantly obsess over it, giving it some mental and emotional recognition is a good thing. When this happens, remember the pothole example from earlier.
Is there anything you can do in the future to keep from hitting another pothole? Maybe the cavernous car wrecking crater was hidden from you. In other words, it wasn’t your fault that you hid it. Even so, you could learn that when it’s difficult to see the road in front of you, proceeding with caution is the smartest move. Then remind yourself that you survived the encounter, whatever it was you’re trying to bounce back from.
Life is tough. This is not the first time you’re going to have to be resilient and overcome the effects of hardship. When it happens again, smile and remember that you survived. You’re still around after life knocked you down and that proves you have what it takes to recover and move on with your life.
You may have had some failures last year that you are trying to get over. But failure isn’t always bad. Check out our blog post here to learn about the importance of embracing failure.
