High Stakes

a black and white picture of people hustling to work at times square New York city

“When the “Stakes are High” how do you function?

– Do you falter to your default mode?

– Do you show all your cards and reveal your true colours?

– Do you throw in the towel?

– Do you run and hide?

– Do you grin and bear it?

– Do you face the music?

Or, do you prefer to…

– Dance your best dance?

– Stir up the pot?

– Fake it while you make it?

– Feel the fear and do it anyway?

So you can… laugh all the way to the bank?

With every new endeavor, at any stage in life, it almost always feels like you have everything to lose. Although this is rarely the reality, the fear of going for it will feel the same as it always has throughout your life. Those few that have learned to tame their internal beasts have learned to harness the power of their strong emotions and let their intellect guide their strategic moves through their greatest challenges.

You may find it helpful to look at what you truly value. Maybe it’s your family and friends and/or your loyal dog (which will love you anyway)? And if all goes to “Hell in a handbasket”, then despite your current set back, you can garner massive personal respect and self-satisfaction from picking up the pieces and rebuilding your situation.

As well, you can look forward to having some good ol’ you-time and for some healthy self-reflection as you look forward to your next play or your next big idea, for you are a true entrepreneur… and you will… “BE BACK”!

You will return bigger and better or maybe just better, but for sure, your Next Move won’t be your last as this is why we do it, to begin with.
