Let’s not beat around the bush, last year was bloody tough for everyone.
We’ve all been flat out like a lizard drinking, just waiting for things to slow down and hoping to catch a break. We all want less worries, more certainty and as Darryl Kerrigan would say “so much serenity”. But is a carefree life actually possible or are we all just dreaming?
At TradeMutt, we believe that instead of burying our heads in the sand, now is the time to recognise that these difficulties will always be a part of our lives, and the sooner we embrace that, the better equipped we become to take back control.
Challenges should be expected, and when they show up, we have the opportunity to prove to ourselves what we’re made of. Proving what we are made of doesn’t mean putting on a brave face and bottling up what’s really going on. It means understanding that when life happens, we have the power to choose how we respond, we don’t have to do it alone, and with every challenge comes a great opportunity to overcome, learn and grow.
There is a lesson in every one of life’s challenges. In RETROspect, it’s up to you to identify those lessons and realise that with every challenge life has thrown your way, not only are you still undefeated, you’re also stronger than you were before.
Take the time to look back on where you’ve come from. You’re supposed to make mistakes, it’s important to reflect and learn, but with every lesson comes an opportunity to pave the road that you want to travel.
