A motivational speaking buddy just told me this - "YuJin, I'm really struggling right now. I think it's time for me to move on from my dream as a keynote speaker and motivational coach and find a 'real job' that supports the family"
My heart goes out to this buddy of mine, as well as thousands of other public speakers, freelancers and entrepreneurs out there who are truly feeling the pinch of the pandemic. With unemployment rates at the highest in the last 10 years and businesses shutting down daily, it's a truly testing time for many....
In such times, we must dig deep and ask ourselves why we chose this path in the first place. I'm sure we all had a dream, a goal or a mission that we wanted to fulfill. Of course, it all seems blurry now with the jolt of financial reality that is hitting us all
In my leadership workshop, I tell participants this - tough times will most certainly be true. And there will be more challenges and adversities to come. It is pertinent for us to get clarity on our dreams, so that we can ignore the noise generated by the pandemic and hang tough on our chosen path.
Keep an eye on the dream, find the inner warrior and stick to your guns. That is how champions are made. Best of luck!
