If there is one thing I, Jeremy Fouts, know about life and even in business like CorVive, it’s that it is always changing; we are continuously going through different seasons. That’s one thing you can count on. The other thing I know is it isn’t the same for anyone. Sure, we may face similar circumstances, good and bad, but all are unique nonetheless. We all go through different seasons and the only way to get through it and come out on top is to understand your season, enjoy your season and make the most of it all.
These seasons I’m speaking of are much like the ones the earth goes through; spring, summer, fall and winter. In your spring season, you’ll be faced with planting new beginnings, and this should be your main focus. What you do in this season plays a part in determining how your following seasons will go. Are you planting seeds of hope, success, and joy? Or are you planting seeds out doubt, failure and worry?
Our next season is summer. This season is all about taking care of and growing the seeds you planted in your spring season. Whatever circumstance you are working with. It’s time to cultivate, water and fertilize those seeds. You must keep a close eye on them, so they don’t dry out and wither away. For example, let’s say you’re working on personal development and growing as a leader. Set goals, have a plan, do a little bit every day, stick to it and assess where you’re at on a daily, weekly or monthly bases.
Up next, fall. Fall is all about the harvest. This is where you reap what you sow. Now is the time to evaluate your production. How is it? Is it where you want it to be? What has been working and what hasn’t? It’s time to take responsibility of your efforts. Remember, it’s never too late to change what’s not working and there’s always room for improvement on what is.
Now for the dreaded winter. Winters can be long and hard and you may face trials, but they won’t last forever. It’s key that you face your winter season head on and focus on getting better, stronger and wiser. Did you make a bad decision that brought you into your winter? Learn from it, grow from it and turn it into something better. Is it something out of your control that brought you into this season? Roll with it, take things as they come and get better.
If you get only one thing out of this blog post, let it be this – enjoy your season. Control what you can, let go of what you can’t and focus on becoming the best you and making the best out of the cards your dealt.
