Sometimes It's Cold In Spring
It's kind of hard to imagine that the other day was the first day of Spring. It was cold and dreary and instead of wanting to take a walk in the park to enjoy the outdoors, binge-watching a series on Netflix felt like a better option. Even today, it feels like Winter doesn't want to part. But, sometimes it's cold in Spring...
Yes, the flowers bloom in Spring; April Showers Bring May Flowers; daylight gets longer; temperatures rise. It's typically a very pleasant time of year. What makes it so nice is that we know it's coming. We often hibernate in the Winter so when Spring comes, we yearn for that freedom. But what happens when it's cold in Spring?
This is a defining period of time because it separates the winners from the losers. When it's cold in Spring, the losers quit. It's too cold outside. My flowers won't bloom. They quit right before the breakthrough. Right before the seasons change. But guess what? Winners recognize that even though there's a delay, there's not a denial. Spring is coming regardless of today's 46 degree forecast. Winners weather the storm. They know that it's only a matter of time before the weather casts a string of consecutive days of 82 degrees with clear skies. That's when you reap the harvest!
Don't give up on your business just because it's cold in Spring. Things will heat up. As long as you're pressing forward with optimism and high expectations that the weather will eventually break. You have to believe. You have to affirm. You have to commit. Because even though this Spring is cold, things are warming up as we speak!
