Welcome to our first newsletter for 2016. I recently read a great article, 'Overcoming any Challenge', which introduced the concept of ‘mind monkeys’ (stay with me here!) The basic premise goes that we are all limited to a greater or lesser extent by our mental baggage. All of us at some point, experience doubt about what we’re doing and why we’re doing it, we might fear the possibility of failure and as a result, this limits our potential and our opportunity to learn and grow.
If we are to succeed, we need to step out of our comfort zone and challenge ourselves. It is only through overcoming challenges that we become stronger, smarter, more evolved and more skilled individuals. Sticking to the path of least resistance and eschewing the ‘hard stuff’ is counterproductive for you and for your business.
There’s no doubt that the coming year will have its own set of unique challenges. But a step in the right direction is to get those pesky ‘mind monkeys’ off our backs and out of our heads. Make this the year you look ‘your monkey’ in the eye and develop a strategic plan that challenges you and moves you forward.
I hope you enjoy our newsletter and as always we welcome your thoughts and feedback.
