Laissez les bons temps rouler

FullSizeRender-48Your big dream and that big project you’re leading at work require enormous energy in addition to everything else you’re managing. It’s no surprise that every now and again you encounter an energy sag.

When the energy sag sets in, it’s challenging to let the good times role – especially when that sag kicks your “get up and go” to a curb around the corner and several blocks away. A debilitating kick with enough force that the original energy sag is now a full-on fizzle.

In your solitude of your banged-up and bruised self sitting on a cold and uncomfortable curb, the reasons to give up on your dream or your big project become clear:

It was a dumb idea in the first place.

I don’t have what it takes to implement this idea.

No one thinks this is a good idea.

I’m not talented.

This is too hard.

I’m tired.

While you very well may be tired, all of the other reasons are emotional rationalizations induced by your energy sag and fizzle.

The fix for your fizzle?

Stand your perfectly, perfect self up from the curb, take a deep breath, and let your inner Kenny Loggins or Kirk Franklin rip because:

This is it

For once in your life

Here’s your miracle

Stand up and fight

You and your dreams are the miracles always worth fighting for!

Laissez des miracles rouler!

    Yes! A deep breath, because on the other side of this is that dream! Great words. Thanks.
