Effective leaders are agile and adaptable. They are nimble in how they respond to obstacles and challenges. They are flexible and know how to respond to adversity. They learn from mistakes and can make adjustments when things go off course. This inspires the people around them and galvanizes their work efforts. It also serves as a rallying cry to unite employees around a shared vision for the future.

When a leader isn’t willing to change they will not see their business grow. They will not attract, hire, and retain great talent. They will not bring people around them who are creative and innovative. They will not be able to model the right behaviors for others to drive execution and sustainable progress towards their goals and desired outcomes. They will not be able to surround themselves with employees who think, act, and behave differently.

Change can be scary and intimidating. It requires faith and trusting in your gut and intuition. It requires you to see things from different perspectives. It forces you to challenge your current assumptions and beliefs. If you aren’t willing to take calculated risks you will not continuously grow. You will not see progress across many different areas of your life. Great leaders deeply understand that the possibility of success greatly outweighs the possibility of failure. They push themselves to consistently get better each and every day.

As an entrepreneur and business owner there is never a day off. Yes, it is important to make sure you get rest and rejuvenate. Yes, it is important to find a healthy balance between your professional and personal life. Yes, it is important to find time for family and your hobbies and interests. Although all the things are important, I’ve learned that even on Saturday’s and Sunday’s you must be willing to put in the work to drive consistent and continuous momentum towards your goals, dreams, and desired outcomes for your business.

Next year will mark the 10 year anniversary of starting my own leadership advisory and management consulting firm. It is a privilege to serve our clients over that span of time and has been a blessing to grow my business year over year. However, it has also been built on a tireless work ethic and personal commitment to driving sustainable results. There have been ups and downs, trails and errors, and moments when I wanted to give up and quit. However, you learn to press through the adversity and obstacles that cross your path.

Putting in a little bit of work on Sunday goes a long way. It gets your Monday’s off on a right track. It allows you to find space for some of the more strategic and long-term aspirations for the work you do. Again, it is always good to unplug and recalibrate, but there are always things you need to give attention to so you can successfully grow your business.

So if you’re just starting out with a new business or aspire to be an entrepreneur, know that your efforts play a major factor in your success. Be willing to put in the work, learn from your mistakes, and never give up. It will take some and be especially challenging early on, but the long-term rewards will be reaped if you continue to sow into your business on a regular basis.

What you’re stressing over right now will not come to pass. The things you’re worried about are most often not based in reality. Fear is a tool you must learn how to use to your advantage. The fear of failure can push you to succeed. It can be a starting point to change habits. It can help you stay dedicated and disciplined. It can push you beyond what you think you’re capable of accomplishing.

Stress and anxiety can get the best of you when you let it fester and permeate throughout your day. It paralyzes you from taking action. It prevents you from moving forward. It can hold you back if not channeled in the right way. The key is to learn how cultivate perspective. Yes, there may be an obstacle in front of you right now. Yes, things could look bad in this moment. But always remember, this too shall pass.

What happened yesterday does not need to be brought into what you are doing today. What might go wrong can easily go right. What seems impossible can become possible if you refocus your thoughts and efforts on the things you can do differently. You only fail if you give up trying. The fear, stress, and anxiety only manifests itself if you stay in that negative mental state. Fix your focus. Redirect your energy and efforts. Believe that anything is attainable.

There is great power in writing things down. So often, we can get pulled in many different directions if we are not purposeful and prioritize what’s mission critical. Journaling is a powerful way to keep track of what you must accomplish each and every day, and it gives you a sense of fulfillment when you cross things off your list. There is nothing more gratifying than putting a to-do list together the night before and getting to complete all those tasks the following day.

Journaling also captures your mood and emotions on a regular basis. Many of the inherent ups and downs in life can trigger certain emotions in all of us. There are moments of joy and elation. There are moments of fear or anxiety. There are moments of frustration and disappointment. There are moments to celebrate a job well done. Keeping a journal helps you track potential triggers and how to get out of negative thought patterns that may occur along the way.

Lastly, journaling is a great opportunity to write down your goals and aspirations for your personal or professional life. This is a habit I started close to 30 years ago and it has enabled me to accomplish dreams that would have never been possible had I not given birth to them with a pen and pad of paper. Taking a thought and putting it down in a journal gives life to that aspiration. It begins the process of making your hopes and vision for the future possible.

Challenges make us better. Obstacles make us stronger. Adversity teaches us wisdom. Detours give us an opportunity to gain perspective. Although you may struggle with something today, know that it is not your identity. That “problem” or “issue” you face is not who you are. It’s meant to give you an opportunity to grow. It’s there to help you rise to another level. Recovering from a setback can serve as a setup for greater success.

The problem in front of you today is temporary, not permanent. You’ve been knocked down before and got back up on your feet. The same is true about this present moment. All it takes is one decision to set yourself on the right path. One choice that can turn everything around. You don’t have to figure everything out right now. One step at a time. One day at a time. One foot in front of the other. Momentum will start to take place once you get moving.

You can overcome anything that has been thrown your way. Have faith things will turn out better tomorrow. Have courage to take a calculated risk and step into the unknown. Believe in your talents, gifts, and abilities. You have all that is needed deep down on the inside. Just keep persisting. Keep pressing forward. Keep showing up. You will make some mistakes along the journey. That’s always better than looking back on your life with regrets for the chances you did not take.

Great leaders focus on intention. It doesn’t matter if this has to do with their goals and objectives. It doesn’t matter if this has to do with their relationships. It doesn’t matter if this has to do with their job duties and responsibilities. When you focus on intention you direct all your time, energy, and resources on what matters most. You direct all your efforts on what must take place right now.

Average leaders focus on distraction, not intention. They let their current emotions get the best of them. They let the perspectives of others dictate where they place their energy. They get swayed easily by the flavor of the month. They avoid concentrating on what’s mission critical for the shiny bright object in front of them today.

Balance is not the objective in life. It is a season in life. Balance comes when you focus all your energy on solving one thing at a time. It is derived from your goals, dreams, and ambitions for your life. So don’t let distraction deter you. Commit to what you want to accomplish and direct all your attention at pursuing that objective. You’ll always have plenty of time to get to the other less significant things in life.

It means little if they are only there for you during good times. It means little if they only support you when it benefits them in some way. It means little if they have your back only when it’s convenient for them to do so. Real friends are there for you through thick and then. Real friends are by your side in good times and when challenges arise.

Great friends bring joy to your life. They encourage you when things aren’t going well. They lift you up when you stumble and fall. They defend you when others come against you. They are in your corner cheering you on when you’re pursing a goal or desired outcome. They provide you with help when you come to them in need. They stick by you when the chips are down.

If you have someone in your life that really cares about you don’t let them goal. Cherish the moments you have with them. Embrace today’s moment and don’t take them for granted. Go out of your way to be there when they need you. The strongest relationships are built on reciprocity. There is mutual respect and trust. There is a bond that doesn’t break easily over time.

You don’t always have to listen to what other people think you should do. Although there are times when you need to seek out the guidance, insights, and perspectives of others, not everyone knows your personal situation. Not everyone knows what you’ve been through. Most people have not walked a mile in your shoes. Most people don’t understand the challenges you might be up against. Most people won’t appreciate the things you’ve had to overcome on your journey.

Taking the path that has been less traveled may be hard at certain points along the way. Stepping into the unknown is scary. Fear is a natural part of the process for growth. However, you should always operate from a place of faith when it comes to the decisions you must make. It’s about faith in your capabilities and what you’ve accomplished before. It’s about faith that you’ve gone through difficult seasons in the past and you will be able to do it again in this present moment.

Doing the things that everyone else is not doing can be your path to some of the greatest successes you will experience in life. Possessing high agency, that is the ability to think independently and make decisions without needing the opinions of other people, is one of the hallmarks of growth and maturity. You’re not going to get everything right all the time. However, this should not paralyze you from taking action. You only fail if you stop trying to move forward.
