The following is an excerpt from Sital Ruparelia’s latest newsletter
“Life is a series of mountains, valleys and missiles”
This is a lesson I learned from my first Business Coach, Chris Barrow
To paraphrase Chris:
Mountains: Are the moments when we feel on top of the world. When everything is going really well.
– When things are good, the key is to enjoy and appreciate the things that are going well instead of obsessing about all the things that aren’t quite yet perfect.
Valleys: Are the moments when we hit a low point (whether personally, professionally or financially).
– When you hit those moments you simply have to dig in. To keep on going. To learn the lessons you need to learn and have faith that things will turn around.
Missiles: Are those moments when we get knocked off our feet by a ‘missile’ that rocks our world. It could be an illness, the death of a loved one, divorce, redundancy or bankruptcy.
– As angry as you may feel, unfortunately you just have to accept such events as part of the tapestry of life. And understand that, with time and help from others, you will move on.
