How can I pivot from my past experiences to move to the next level?
Pivoting and growing from past experiences is how we move forward.
Our failures are usually where we can learn the most especially about how we need to grow and what direction we need to go.
The trick is really leaning in and asking the difficult questions. How did this happen? How did I end up here? Where do I want to go? Challenge yourself to tolerate the discomfort of doing things differently to create growth and make changes.
We often deal with business and personal difficulties and pivots and often they run parallel. We often see the same patterns in our business in personal lives.
Making changes can often have huge impacts on our business and personal lives. Changes we make in our personal lives often carry over to our business too.
How do I reach my next level?
What does that next level look like? If you were at that next level what would your life look like? What would your daily life look like? What would your relationships look like? What would you have achieved that is different than it is now?
These are important, but hard questions to look at when you are trying to reach the next level. The reality is that it might not look the same for you as it does for somebody else based on what is important to you.
We really need to actually pivot and leave somethings behind from our past.
When do you think we should learn from our mistakes and past experience and hold on to them and grow with those and when do you think we should leave those in the past and forget about it?
We often need to learn an entirely new set of skills or to do things in a different way when we pivot and that can be very uncomfortable. We need to be able to tolerate that discomfort and move forward. We need to step out of our comfort zone and learn new things.
