So the story goes, that when an ostrich sees a problem, a threat, it buries it’s head in the sand. It’s belief is, if it can’t see the threat, it will just go away.
Many people and businesses do this, hoping it will all be ok. The unfortunate reality is that it isn’t ok and the threat or problem is just getting worse and will never go away.
The stone in our shoes only goes away when we tip the stone out of our shoes.
Whatever it is, facing it and being prepared to be vulnerable is the only way we can overcome challenges. It takes bravery and is not as easy as it was to write it. We have to build up, change habits, step out of the comfort zone and prepared to feel awkward, exposed and struggling.
Hiding is the worst strategy and longer term more painful.
