Sometimes being in business feels like taking a constant beating. There’s tension with your team, tension with your customers, tension with friends and peers. You’re not finding enough leads, hiring the right people, or achieving the right margins.
It’s hard work. And no matter how successful you get, it never stops being hard work.
If you can approach leadership with this mindset, then even when you’re failing, you’re winning.
You don’t ever really fail; you just fall down.
And then you get back up again.
If there’s anything you take away from this series, I hope it’s that you are already leading bravely. To have gotten to where you are today, and to keep going, takes a lot of courage. And your courage inspires me to keep going, to commit and recommit to my mission of helping companies…even on my hardest days. Thank you—as always, I’m so grateful for you.
