Sometimes timing can be absolutely perfect ...
When the going gets tough, the tough get going. This old saying makes a lot of sense when we break it down. When things get "tough" there are humans that toughen up and start creating and become open to what's possible. If things "get tough" it's the perfect time to unlock new doors and to create something new. The "tough" refer to people that take strides to make change happen rather than allowing circumstances to eat them alive.
There's a recent company that is a great representation of this saying. This "overnight wonder" is amongst the very few "unicorns" in business that really made a HUGE impact quickly! Truly it seems like magick, but really it is opening that door of potential and possibility, and making a bet on something to bring it forward into the world. And sometimes even something that could seem silly becomes the next HUGE thing that everyone is vying to get!
The company I speak of is City Bonfires. If you haven't heard of them, you should definitely check them out. Their "about story" is quite fantastic and shows "how the tough" can get going even in circumstances that could seem impossible. The losing of jobs could have led them down dark paths, but instead, these two founders lit theirs up! (Quite literally!)
The lesson here as I see it, is that it's really important for all of us humans to look at "disruption" in new ways. This is the entire ethos of my Disrupt Now Program and Podcast. We can use disruptions to our benefit and the key is to look at the circumstances through a new lens and from a bird's eye view. And to not be afraid to unleash our creativity wherever it flows and however it looks. That's when we begin to step out into our own unique magick, which is the KEY to unlocking what's possible. (That's the name of my new program from Disrupt Now, Tap Into Your Magick!)
One thing that we have to be aware of is that the energy of what we call "money' follows in the wake of big and bold steps. Add the taking of consistent steps into the equation and then we start to unlock the formula for creating "success." This "success" will look different for everyone. Success should not be labeled as profit, but instead labeled as value. That's where this world is going... the exchange of VALUE.
There is risk in everything and there is no safety in this world when it comes to "jobs" so we should create and do what makes us come alive with a big focus on ADDING VALUE into the world.
It's rare when a business or idea becomes a huge overnight wonder, but this story of City Bonfires brings the truth to light (pun intended) that it's possible!
And, for others, it may take a lifetime to become an "overnight" hit.
The goal isn't to be this kind of unicorn, but rather to use disruptions as catalysts to come alive!
