When a crisis comes, people do the craziest things–Beware, Avoid the Bunker!

13 Apr

Unexpected change can be overwhelming.  When a crisis comes, people do the craziest things. They go bonkers and begin to bunker.

“Bunkering” is when you try to sneak away and hide while hoping everything will just work out. You fool yourself into believing you can manage your crisis alone. You internalize everything and shut out everyone around you. Big Mistake!  That’s doing exactly the opposite of what you need most.

Power of WHO Tips

  • What you really need is someone who will confidentially listen, care, and help strategize with you!  You need your “Who”!  Those people who care about you and want to help . . . “just because.”
  • You need true friends who know you and can remind you how successful you’ve been and how your next success is “just around the corner.”
  • Each of us has our own “Who” network.  However, too many of us have let it slip right out of our hands. If you’ve allowed that to happen, you’ve gotta get it back!  
  • If you’re going to succeed in accomplishing any goal you’ll achieve it quicker and with better results when you get a little help from your friends.
  • The most amazing secrets and the most profound ideas are the simplest, but a lot of times they’re the hardest to see.
