Strategies to Help Business Professionals That are Stuck

by Nadene Joy

Did you know that most leaders and business professionals have gone through times in their lives where they have felt stuck or hit rock bottom? I’m sure you can relate to a business project that just never took off, or a venture that failed, a partnership or relationship that went south, an investment that did not perform or illness that consumed your life? Or maybe you can relate to a time in your life or childhood where you experienced significant loss, grief, pain, disease, heartache, abuse or trauma that you’ve held onto unknowingly for your entire life? When we go along in life on autopilot, we may or may not recognize that 99% of our thoughts, words and actions are automatically based on unconscious patterns and habits formed from our near or distant past. Unless we become acutely aware of and begin to heal and reprogram what is operating under the surface (or that which may be holding us back from experiencing more out of life), we will reach a plateau in life, in business and in love based on what we were “programmed” to receive and we believe we are worthy of.  

Some of the greatest leaders in history grew up in less than ideal circumstances and chose to make a sometimes rather public choice to no longer be held captive by the limitations and demons from their past. They committed to breaking the chains once and for all and to rising above; leading the way for so many others around the world. Martin Luther King Jr. is a prime example of one of the greatest leaders of our time who exhibited true courage and humble leadership, despite the fact that he went through a significant period of horrific discrimination from the time he was a small child. He lived his life in faith and refused to let the system win. He was arrested over 20 times in his lifetime for taking a stand and speaking up for what he believed in. Shockingly, he even had his home bombed, however, despite what most would perceive as obstacles and setbacks, he never gave up on his dream of freedom and hope for all. He showed us our lives must be lived intentionally and without regret, that words mean something, and we must speak up in the face of injustice. He taught us much including that it is one thing to say you have an idea and quite another to act on it. His courageous actions still inspire millions of people today. One of the greatest qualities he possessed was extreme patience, an invaluable virtue indeed.
