One Adam 12…Who is your back-up?
Who remembers that show? I loved that saying, all seven of us would run around the house yelling “One Adam 12”. Today I think it is about calling in the back-up. When my puppies are outside I feel like Leo barks “One Adam 12” and Peanut comes running. They are each other’s back-up to chase birds, squirrels or neighbor dogs.
It got me thinking, who is your back-up? Who do you call in when you have a difficult situation or a big project ahead? I think we all need a little back-up at times. I hope if you are a parent, you are your kids back-up when they are feeling overwhelmed. If you are married I hope your spouse is your back-up and if you are single, I hope you have a good friend. We all need a little back-up at times.
Lately, I have met a number of people out of work and usually not by choice. Some were there for six months while others were there for over 20 years. I think it’s a great idea to have a Plan B just in case your Plan A doesn’t work out. I love having a few sources of income that all come from encouraging others to be more successful at work, live a healthier life or have more enjoyable relationships. My Speaking, Coaching, Journal and AdvoCare all bring income and success for my clients!
Do you have a plan B when a job doesn’t workout? How about a back-up plan for when a relationship disappoints you? Do you know what you will do when you get bad news or a bump comes in your road? When we have our life all planned out and than there comes a challenge along the way what do you do? Do you panic, Do you have support to turn to? Does it fuel you to work harder and never give up? or does it knock the wind out of you?
