Change often brings with it a sense of vulnerability, when we tend to be spending more time thinking of our own predicament, the lack of plenty that pervades and how we might be able to replace this void, provide more.
In reality, challenges that we see now should not be seen as a time of inward needs, although it’s completely natural to feel exceedingly needy if the once-thriving business has suddenly withdrawn to a state of flux. With such a tug toward our own fulfilment, all we need remember is what makes us all so different.
How we reach out to family, friends, colleagues and of course our customers define us as not just genuine, caring human beings but invaluable connections, now and for the future.
Looking inward should be a call to take action by offering our availability. Why not write the emails, take the postcards and put them in the post, connect and add those new friends you simply haven’t made time to do – until now. Show your individuality, your supportive nature and remember that people do indeed buy from people who they know, who they trust.
Your direct family know you already, why not extend your family of connections by showing that you can reach out while we all take time to reflect on what makes us different?
Let’s do, not dwell. Give ourselves the greatest chance for success by moving out of our own way.
