With the rapid spread of this Covid-19 across the entire world, leaders everywhere are being challenged to lead in very uncertain & unprecedented times. The setbacks have been extremely widespread and significant for all of us, and the question is how are you going to respond?
Every setback has a benefit...nothing great has ever been achieved without adversity. “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”, as Charles Swindoll so eloquently stated. Think on the benefits of setbacks:
1) Setbacks prompt creativity and innovation
2) Setbacks develop maturity
3) Setbacks provide us greater opportunities
4) Setbacks create GRIT & resilience
5) Setbacks MOTIVATE
6) Setbacks push the envelope of accepted performance
Finding the benefit in a setback is an ability that must be learned and cultivated. Success is earned as you learn from adversity and we must learn how to embrace setback as part of the journey. Reframing your perspective on setbacks will help you continue to move forward, no matter how far you have been knocked down. While we may not know exactly what the future holds, we do know that “this too shall pass”. Will you be ready to bounce back when we come out of this...and WE WILL come out of this!!!
