In 2012 I left a job I loved to pursue my crazy dream of starting a business to help people and organisations realise, chase and achieve their dreams. Driven by my passion & belief, my mission was simple; to bridge the gap between where people are to where they dream of being. My method was not. The result? I fell flat on my face. Splat!
If I could wind back the clock to 2012 would I do the same thing again? Yes! Why? Because although defeat is painful & has a very bitter taste it was necessary. It allowed me to learn an important lesson which enables me to better help my clients. I learnt how to begin again.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not a stranger to failure or defeat. But this time the fall was far higher & harder than I had experienced before. It is difficult to bounce back from a high & hard fall. But it is possible. It takes time to put yourself together again. To pick up the pieces. To nurse the wounds. You can’t rush the recovery. But just when you think all hope is dead & gone. You see a single green shoot that brings life back to your dream which once looked & felt lifeless - hope remains.
