You see your life is unique in many respects, and that’s why I say it is a Project.
But, no matter how unique a project is, it doesn’t exist in a vacuum. There’s an industry, a market, a pool of SMEs that can help, lessons learnt from similar projects, common issues and risks with other projects, the works.
The greatest trick of the enemy is to get you to a place where you feel isolated, and alone in this world. Don’t fall for it.
Why is this happening to ME?
Why am I so unlucky?
All my friends are ________, except ME?
Why can’t I just_________?
Why is it only my business/ career that’s not thriving? At this point you should burst out laughing. You know this can’t be true right?
Every single person you know is afraid of something, loves something, has lost something. Better still yearns for something…
You are not alone.
There is no temptation that has overtaken you that is not common to man.
Take a hard look at yourself in the mirror and say:
“Adenike, you are not alone! Others have overcome this and you will too. Others have achieved this against all odds, and you will too.” Of course, I expect you to substitute Adenike with your own name, but if you want to send me some positive vibes, I’m up for it. Lol…
The battle is started and won in the mind.
Acknowledging that you’re not alone doesn’t solve the problem, I agree. But it lifts you out of a place of despondence and helplessness. It gives you the clarity of thought required to look for and find the right solutions. It puts you back in charge. And that’s what PMs do, they stay in charge and keep steering their Project to success, come what may.
Take charge of your life. Yes you can.
