Can you keep your head in the game?
I was doing the “Cryptoquote” in the Daily Gazette (our local newspaper) the other day and it read, “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, it’s just possible you haven’t grasped the situation,” a quote from Jean Kerr. It has been bugging me ever since. I must say, I wholeheartedly disagree.
As a wedding and event planner, can you imagine if I allowed myself to get caught up in the drama of the day instead of keeping it together while everyone else is losing it?! That is my job … to keep my head in the game in the midst of the pressure! I am there to bring people down from a situation, not add to it!
As an entrepreneur in the business of risk, can you imagine if I lost my head when the budget goes askew while renovating a house for resale?! It is up to me to pull everyone together and make it work, no matter what is happening. We just redirect and head in a slightly different direction. There are always more than one way to reach your goals.
So my quote would read more like, “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, it is just possible you are about to achieve success!” Julie Baker <><
So get out there and let them know you have what it takes, because you can keep it together in your climb toward success, no matter what may occur along the way.
