We can be like that; when the warmth escapes or eludes us in our personal or business life, we tend to withdraw or to stop growing. We may even retreat back into hibernation.
And that’s an okay thing to do. You may not agree, however.
But when our plans or life doesn’t go the way we expected, the time to reflect, to go dormant, is a necessity. That time gives us the chance to clear our minds, to step back, to contemplate what we must do differently that will add to our happiness or success.
I also believe that time brings quiet so we can hear the voices of great and new ideas.
Later this morning I will kick off and be interviewed on the Coffee with Soul series discussing how to get through life-changing (or any sized) events. Becoming dormant is part of the process.
When do you retreat? When do you reappear? How much have you grown from the time you went dormant?
“No human being ever learns to live until he has awakened to the dormant powers within him”
