There are moments in time when we have the opportunity to rise like a phoenix from the ashes. Stronger, smarter, and more powerful.
We have never been to a more anxious moment in most of our lifetimes. It could feel like your effort and ideas don’t matter, things won’t change, and we can’t connect with the people we love.
But remember this:
A community organizer, lawyer, and junior senator from south Chicago lead us through the 2008 economic crisis and is viewed as one of the most popular Presidents in history.
Many of the innovative companies in the world were created in recessions including Netflix, Air BnB, Trader Joe’s, Microsoft, Disney, IBM, HP.
Special mention to Salesforce which was started the year before the dot.com bubble burst.
There is always opportunity in crisis.
- Look for gaps in the market.
- Partner with positive people and get around the same table to create change.
- Believe in yourself and the examples of inspiring leaders past and present.
Like a Phoenix, you are getting stronger, smarter, and more resilient every day in 2020. Be present and look forward to who you will be in 2021.
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
