Delay is not Denial: How To Be Patient When Progress is Slow

Life has a very interesting way of humbling us. We can have all these ideas, plans and goals in the world and do the work to make things happen but sometimes results feel like they’re taking an eternity to manifest. It can feel like progress is slow and sometimes it feels like you’re not making any progress at all.  In this video I’m sharing a slightly different style of message. After having conversations with some mentees about progress I just wanted to encourage other people who might need to be reminded that delay is not denial. I am not a business coach but I understand the challenges that business owners face and in fact this message resonates for professionals too.

In business it can seem like things may not being moving in the right direction or even moving quickly enough. But quite often when things take longer than we anticipate it’s for good reason, it means that the timing is not quite right for a breakthrough in your business but that doesn’t mean that the breakthrough isn’t going to happen. Don’t lose hope, don’t get caught up believing that because what you want to happen hasn’t happened yet that it never will! I know it sounds like a cliche but the best things in life take time, you have to learn to be resilient, you have to be patient. That doesn’t mean that you have to stop moving forward, just because you think your successes haven’t come to fruition yet that doesn’t mean that you should give up.  Sometimes we can be our own harshest critics, if you took the time to assess your accomplishments you might be a lot closer than you give yourself credit for.
