Stay Calm

Have you ever run across anyone who seems to live their life in a panic? Likes the chaos? Thrives on drama? Yes, me too. Let’s talk about the opposite of that.

A friend of mine recently had a young man in his home who talked about how he approaches conversations with co-workers and people that he supervises when things get a little wacky.

Yelsi lives in the US now but was born in Nicaragua and is from Costa Rica. His quote is a great perspective on life and leadership.

“Stay calm. We’ll figure it out.”.

Too many people like to live their life in a reactionary mode. People and leaders of impact know that things happen. Life happens and sometimes it’s hard.

If you know and accept that you can also be committed to staying calm and trusting that you will be able to figure things out. Live and lead like that.

I’m cheering for you.
