This is a picture taken of myself and my husband last week in Hawaii. Now, Hawaii is a fantastic place to travel too, but we did not go to Hawaii to be in Hawaii, we went for the Bob Harrison Increase Event. As entrepreneurs and business owners it is ultimately important to connect with people who think BIG and go BIG. We cannot afford to miss this event each year in Hawaii.
I would like to share with you something that I learned that applies not only to entrepreneurs and business owners, but to people in general. Here is one of my favorite quotes from this past week:
"Crisis and Pressure are the Incubator of Innovation." Dr. Myles Monroe
As humans our automatic response to pressure and crisis is to get out of it as quickly as possible, doesn't matter how, just get me out. Pressure takes us to a place of being uncomfortable. Imagine all of the people in our nation who are uncomfortable right now or maybe that's you.
Bob Harrison illustrated this idea with a story about a boy, who, seeing a butterfly struggling to get out of a cocoon decided to help the butterfly. He got a scissors and cut the cocoon and the butterfly broke through. However, the butterfly could not fly because the pressure to get out of the cocoon is the very thing that strengthens it's wings to fly.
In this season of economic pressure what creative idea or innovation do you have inside of you? In this season inside the cocoon what can you produce so that when the pressure is on, your struggle to break through the resistance will give you the ability to fly?
For me, I want to be an innovator in my industry. I want to use my creativity to come up with unique and innovative designs that no one has thought of yet. And really, I like to change the way people do business. It really should be fun and exciting and about helping people get what they need. Zig Ziglar says,"If you help enough other people get what they want, you always get what you want." I love that!
Anyway...what does this have to do with Veil Trends?......Oh absolutely nothing :)
