I’ve had my fair share of resolutions and noticed I don’t accomplish most of them because of excuses. Does this sound familiar to you? – “I didn’t get to do my new year’s resolution from x years ago because (fill in the blank with excuses).” Perhaps the resolution or goal was never accomplished because we were yanked out from our euphoric state of the new year’s celebration and back to the usual grind of daily tasks.
This 2012, I’ve decided to create new habits instead of making a list of resolutions.
The past few weeks have been crucial to my evolution and with the recent celebration of my birthday, another year of uncertainty is about to unfold.
Uncertainty. A word that I used to dread. I was the type of person who would make sure everything goes exactly as planned. Any changes to the plan would make me anxious. Recently, I’ve managed to learn how to accept uncertainty and look at it at something positive rather than destructive. I now welcome it with open arms.
I was fortunate to have been invited to be a guest in a TV show called The SME Forum, which broadcasts every Monday morning at GNN (Destiny Cable, channel 21).
The topic for that day was “Why Businesses (Entrepreneurs) Fail?”, where we discussed a few reasons why we fail in our businesses and how training can help bridge that gap. It being a broad topic, there wasn’t enough time to discuss it in length. I’m hoping that whoever was watching during the live show learned a few things.
