We all face challenges, but how we deal with them determines the outcome
I admit it, I’m addicted to reality baking shows on TV.
I watched as many episodes of the Great British Bake Off as was available on YouTube. Now I’m on Season 1 of the the Great Australian Bake Off.
My European and Australian accents are coming right along. They are, in the words of Paul Hollywood, “well done!”
Even the best bakers can have a bad day. Baking is a science. So if some element is off, even the slightest, the result can be a flop.
Australian contestant, home baker Monique Bowley was under the gun to finish her dessert during a “technical challenge” when it was not going as planned. When questioned about the challenges she was experiencing with that particular bake, she responded:
There’s no option at this point, but to push on. – Monique Bowley
How true is that in life?
Whether you’re facing difficulties in your personal life, or your business seems to be hitting all sorts of roadblocks, push on.
What’s the alternative? You could quit. You could focus on what isn’t going right. You could get derailed by all the anger, frustrations and disappoints you’re feeling; or you could push on.
Which will you choose?
If you’ll excuse me, I must go check on my biscuits now. They’re quite lovely indeed. (Biscuits in EU and AU is what Americans call cookies)
