Overcoming AdversityFit Kitchen
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind not with it” – Henry Ford
This is a great quote as it refreshes your mind that resistance and adversity are needed to achieve great things and “take-off”. If you aren’t having any adversity maybe you aren’t getting out of your comfort zone enough and should go looking for some!
We have heard all the quotes around this topic but it is true that you learn so much more about yourself and your business when you go through tough times and have to battle. You gain a whole new set of tools in the tool chest and sharpen the skills needed to survive. Certainly it can suck when you are in the middle of the shit but if you trust the process there are good things awaiting you on the other side of adversity.
We have closed down locations, laid off employees and been on life support but always kept putting one foot ahead of the other and simply kept moving. Stop moving and you die. Keep moving forward and chunk things down, eat that damn elephant one bite at a time. You are a winner, you will get there and you will inspire others through your journey.
Take care of your body during the rough times by staying active and eating well. Your body and mind are the foundation that will get you through these times so make them priority number one. Add in some passion, excitement and gratitude to fuel the fire and you will be ready to ride the toughest of waves.
See you on the other side of your challenges!
