The ground is dependable. We need the ground to stand on, to build things on, to get from here to there and to…well…stand our ground.
Here’s how to tell if you’re grounded:
— You’re grounded if you consistently remain “ruthlessly committed” to your mission.
— You’re grounded if you can actually make choices & decisions BEFORE the doors of opportunity close.
— You’re grounded if things are progressing, moving forward and getting accomplished—even if it’s slow.
— You’re grounded if you’re making “enough” to keep your world financed—even if it’s “just enough.”
Grounded doesn’t mean you’ve won the lottery or picked up a million YouTube views. What it means, is that you’re intelligently navigating the cutes & ladders that come your way, and you’re able to pick up and keep moving when they don’t.
“When adversity strikes, that’s when you have to be the most calm. Take a step back, stay strong, stay grounded and press on.” —LL Cool J
