We just left 2021 behind, not much better than 2020 in many ways. I went into 2022 on New Year’s Eve with great hope and positive expectations that a much better year is on the way and all the negativity, stress and anxiety will subside to lead a path of positive energy and affirmations. Well, just 11 days into the new year I have already experienced stress and anxiety, mostly pertaining to my business, and I have had to hold onto positive energy like my life depends on it. Because actually, my business does.
I made a promise to begin writing a daily journal, read motivational books, attend life coaching workshops and network with positive people. Because it isn’t what happens to us, but how we “react” to what happens that is truly what matters. Many small businesses are struggling to survive and I personally feel their pain. So, with that said, we need to follow these lyrics and JUST WHIP IT GOOD!
“Crack that whip! Give the past a slip:
When a problem comes along, you must whip it!
When something’s going wrong, you must whip it!
When a good time turns around, you must whip it!
You will never live it down unless you whip it!
Now, WHIP IT: into shape, shape it up, get straight, go forward, move ahead, try to detect it, it’s not too late to WHIP IT, WHIP IT GOOD!”
In spite of all the hurdles and roadblocks, all the backtracking and losing ground, all the disappointments and failures, we WILL go forward, move ahead, shape it up and WHIP IT GOOD this year! Otherwise, I will never live it down.
Lyrics by DEVO from the song, “Whip It”
