Last month, I mentioned the phrase “Life gets in the way.” Well, sometimes it does much more than that. Sometimes, we have a crisis occur, either in our personal our professional lives and we need those closest to us to help us out…now.
Here is my challenge for you this month:
Decide who the top three people are in your life, both personally and professionally that you could count on in the most dire circumstances to support you.
Maybe it is a health issue in your family, or a major setback in your business.
These friends/family members would be willing to drop everything to help you, regardless of what it cost them to do so. As Oprah Winfrey once said: “Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down”.
So when life begins to break down, who would run towards you to help? And flip the question, who would you run towards if they needed you?
So who would you call? It’s time to decide!
I am truly excited that my second book in my Decision Series for Entrepreneurs® titled The Third Decision: The Intentional Entrepreneur – Building a Regret-Free Life Beyond Business was published earlier this year. The book delves into the topic above and is built around the top regrets people typically have in their lives, outside of work. Whereas I challenged the reader to become qualified in my best-selling Second Decision book, I challenge entrepreneurs and leaders to become intentional and to commit to non-negotiables in this book. Non-negotiables are commitments that you are not willing to compromise on; they are off-limits for discussion. What are they not? Statements like, “I know I should,” “I really want to try,” or “I am going to give this my best shot.”
