When we look at any chart or our lives we see ups and downs. Very rarely, if ever, are people or businesses on a straight trajectory up. Constant gains, always acquiring clients, never experiencing downtowns or hitting your numbers every month is hard to sustain over a two to five-year time frame.
How we deal with the lows, determines how quickly we get back to our even or back to our upward movement. Some lows are harder to come out than others. No matter how long the lull may be, it is important to start back up with a plan.
A plan that can start small and increase over the coming months. Make sure your short-term and intermediate goals are achievable, knowing that you would prefer a longer term, upward moving positive trend. That will be more beneficial over the sharp upturns, which ultimately lead to the same speed of down turns.
There are always highs and always low. Celebrate them all, but always have a plan when the lows come. It will make the journey back to positive that much more enjoyable.
Make it the best day!
