Where can/do we find hope today for tomorrow?


The covid-19 pandemic offers opportunities worldwide to do better, once the clouds have cleared. So do tons of people like me and you think everyday. Many dogmas have already flew out the window in recent months, many others may follow.

Hope For Tomorrow” from Frieda White | Liberty Church - Cleveland, TX

There are the seeds of hope, there is the massive challenge to shape a new world soon. But there is more that connects the members of the new resistance: they are constructive, creative and rightly impudent. People who resist demand respect for democracy and try to force change both inside and outside systems and organizations. The new resistance has new faces, but is based on a rich history and a strong civil society that is too often under attack.

The new resistance is badly needed now and as soon as COVID-19 is under control, or something like it. The recovery of our societies, of our economies, of our cities, of people will not go smoothly. We applaud, perhaps too soon, the prospect of a vaccine and new freedom. But practical objections, mistrust and a neoliberal roadmap stand in the way of a smooth global vaccination.

At the same time, the pandemic offers opportunities to do better when the clouds clear. Opportunities not to let those few annual percentage points of growth in gross national product get in the way of people and their needs too often.

Many dogmas have already flew out the window in recent months, many others may follow. Massive investments were smoothly planned to keep the economy going. I saw it was okay, though there was no other option. But how well prepared are we for a historic recovery with leaders in many places who are making the lives of countless others more difficult or nearly impossible just now?

It is sometimes a challenge not to become cynical. I look around and see that too many strings of the recovery are in the hands of people who usually did not care about the consequences of the corona crisis for the most vulnerable. I look in the mirror, but I also address you. Look elsewhere, avert your gaze and look for weeds and naturalists, people kicking shins and reminding us that, every day, we determine the future together.

People want a M.B.A. = (Massive Bank Account), However they are clueless on how to create wealth and be R.I.C.H = (Residual Income Compliments Health/Happiness) 😁

It’s because they continuously surround themselves with H.A.T.E.R.S = (Having Anger Towards Everyone Reaching Success) 🤬 and then wonder why they are P.O.O.R = (Passing Over Opportunity Repeatedly) 🤕 and B.R.O.K.E. = (Being Ridiculous Outlawing Knowledge Everyday) 🤦‍♀️

You can’t have a P.R.O.J.E.C.T.S. (People Relying On Just Enough Cash To Survive) type of mindset. You have to be willing to make that C.H.A.N.G.E = (Choosing Happiness And Never Giving Excuses) 🤓 and exercise true F.A.I.T.H (Finding Answers In The Heart) 🤗 along with H.O.P.E (Having Only Positive Expectations) to make that P.U.S.H (Persistent Until Something Happens) 😎



Entrepreneurs Growth is not that Difficult:

1. Set goals
2. Achieving goals

Still, many entrepreneurs are going wrong there.

1. No / vague goals
2. Work harder and harder as a strategy to achieve the goals.

Can you NOW list your 3 most important business growth goals for Q4 2019?

Most people can't name anything.
And the people who say something do not set goals, but hope:

More sales
Better customer retention
Larger margins
That kind of goals is like a darts game where the assignment is:

"Throw some arrows in the board."

Quite hopeless. And yet that is exactly the way so many entrepreneurs try to grow.

Vague. Without strategy.

The danger: if you throw enough arrows in the direction of the dartboard, an arrow will automatically end up in the bulls eye once in a while.
The entrepreneur happily throws his arms in the air and shouts, "You see, it works!"

In reality this is the formula for success:

1. Set meaningful and challenging goals
2. Develop a system for achieving those goals

If a goal is not useful, stop it immediately in the event of a setback or temptation.
If a goal is not challenging, you only go half way for it.

Furthermore, it is important to realize that you do not have to work twice as hard to double your result.
If you continuously focus only on what matters most, your output will double without increasing your input.

But there is a step missing in this formula.
And without this step you can achieve goal after goal, and eventually die with regret.

The formula for sustainable success:
1. Set meaningful and challenging goals
2. Develop a system for achieving those goals
3. Develop habits so that you enjoy the goals you have achieved (the missing step)

If you don't have them, Learn them, Develop them, Use them, make them your habit.
