What is resignation?
It’s a state of thinking nothing is going to work, the situation can’t change, we’ve become resigned to the fact that this is just kind of how it is.
How do we find ourselves in a state like this?
And I’m sure we’ve all been there, on one level or another, in our business or life, but what leads to it?
Whatever we did, led to this situation. But what precedes an Action is a Decision.

When we have new knowledge, when we educate ourselves, we have more connections, we have the possibility now of having a new Idea, which will lead to new Thoughts, new Questions, new Decisions, new Actions, and hey, maybe even some different outcomes.
If you’re feeling stuck, let’s pick something, maybe with your team for example. If your employees are coming in late, or they’re not doing the work that they need to do, to the level of excellence that you’re expecting.
Or generally they’re just not high-performing employees. And you feel a little bit stuck with them. Are you actually? Maybe, maybe not.
Are you doing any education for yourself on leadership, and hiring, and on communication, and motivation, inspiration, understanding of other people.
If you’re not, that could be why you’re stuck.
Look at the current situation and ask yourself,
