Embracing the Growth Process
On my journey to a greater level of emotional awareness, I’ve discovered that my emotions in any given time are gateways to understanding my mindsets in that moment.
And after being open for only one day of business, I realized that subconsciously I thought I would jump in and experience explosive growth just because I showed up.
It sounds ridiculous now that I‘m writing it down, but that is indeed what I must have thought because I was discouraged.
The sales numbers were on par with projections based on previous performance, but my emotional response made me realize I was expecting something different.
I did exactly what I didn’t want to do. I judged my day by the harvest I reaped and not by the seeds I sowed.
After a little sulking, some prayer and meditation; here’s where I landed:
Anything that reproduces in this world has to go through a natural growth process. Some processes are faster than others, but there is still a process. My journey in business is going to be no different. I could get frustrated with the process, or I could embrace it. Learning all the lessons it has to teach me on my path to growth.
I’m choosing to do the latter.
