Somewhere Over Which Rainbow?
My husband and I are here for a weekend escape to celebrate our 19th anniversary. (Yes, I was a child bride 😉
I couldn’t help but think as I looked at this gorgeous rainbow that we are all searching…we have been programmed to seek the ‘gold at the end of the rainbow.’ Dorothy has sung to us since childhood that ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ is better than where we are now.
And now that I’m older (and hopefully wiser) — I’m going to respectfully disagree.
There is no ONE rainbow. There is no ONE ultimate. There is no ONE success or ONE finish line for your life or your business.
Instead, I believe we are gifted with multiple rainbows. Honestly, I was reminded of this by my 7 year old that said, “Mom, we need to go to Hawaii again. They have rainbows every single day.”
She’s right. We have daily rainbows. Daily successes. Daily achievements and gifts that we need to be celebrating right now.
Maybe this isn’t a brass tacks business post. Maybe you were hoping for 4 steps to getting to the end of the rainbow by next month. Sorry to disappoint you.
Or maybe…I can help after all…
If I had to construct 4 steps to getting to the end of your rainbow as quickly as possible, perhaps my advice would be this:
- Get clear on what goal or success or ‘rainbow’ you are working towards
- Be consistent with your daily effort & focus time (your coach or mentor can help you know where you should be channeling activities)
- Surround yourself with rainbow seekers and not rain coat sellers.
- Recognize the rainbows (even the little ones) when they appear & celebrate the beauty of it!
Don’t keep changing the rainbow. Don’t dismiss your successes when they happen. And most of all…recognize that while your rainbow might be different than mine…you CAN do this.
I believe in rainbows and I believe in YOU!
Please share with me below a success or goal or ‘rainbow’ you’d like to see in the next 30 days or so. I’d really love to know!
