Maybe it’s YOU 🤷‍♂️

Many times in life, shit just ain’t going right… 

Despite great talent, the team just can’t seem to put it all together, the business that was once an unstoppable MACHINE all of a sudden begins to tank, and the relationship that used to be an eternal flame of love has somehow turned into a RAGING INFERNO. 

As humans, it’s only natural to try to figure out ways to solve the issues… 

We look into the dynamics of the team and usually find what we perceive to be the weak link, and then of course, it makes perfect sense to viciously go on the attack. 

When our business is failing, it’s got to be the sales or marketing of the product because surely there couldn’t be anything wrong with the well oiled ENGINE we created… That bitch has a lifetime warranty & will flawlessly run forever… 

And when it comes to relationships, it’s not our fault our partner has slowly turned into a needy jealous self indulged whiney old hag; they are simply losing their f*cking minds… It’s a mental illness. 🧠 

Yet, even after we kick Rudy off the team, we fire our entire sales/marketing team and lock up our significant other in a room with no windows and four padded walls, NOTHING seems to get better. 🤦‍♂️

It’s usually then and only then when we decide to look into other potential causes of destruction, and ironically, it will lead us to the same place every F*ING time…. 

The mirror. 

When we explore the inner depths of our being and actions, we are FINALLY able to realize that WE may be the problem.

Here’s the good thing though… If we are able to look directly into the mirror and take accountability EARLY enough, we most likely won’t turn into Medusa and might even have a chance to save our team, business and marriage. 🤷‍♂️
