Guest post by Michael Mogill, CEO of Crisp
I am tired. You are tired. Everyone is tired and mentally/emotionally drained. All across the world. Many don’t want to keep going. You may be asking yourself, “How long is this going to go on for?”
The past 1.5 years have been shocking to the body and mind — and with everything going on around the world, most have been in a prolonged, chronic state of stress.
What I say next is not undermining the impact of the above.
But now is the time for you as a leader to LEAD.
I promise you, there are law firm owners all around the country that are picking themselves up, leaning on each other, encouraging their peers, and fueling that internal drive to keep pushing forward.
As a law firm owner, you help people who are experiencing the worst of days of their lives and are in some of the greatest amounts of pain. Whether someone in their family has been catastrophically injured and is unable to return to work and provide for their family, or you are working to hold large corporations accountable for endangering public safety, or you are the voice for someone who has been taken advantage of because they don’t speak the language, understand the justice system, or do not have the financial resources to fight back — YOUR CLIENTS NEED YOU.
So you see? It’s not about you.
It’s about helping others succeed. Your clients. Your team. Their families. Your family. Everyone who relies on YOU.
Remember that, and use it to refuel yourself.
If you think things are bad right now, listen to this: If you do not step up and invest in yourself and your future, you guarantee they will stay bad.
There is no other way out of this than THROUGH.
I will help you. I wanted to get out a message of encouragement and support to you today because I didn’t see anyone else doing it. If you’re struggling to press on and need someone in your corner, text me directly at 404-531-7691. I promise I will listen to you, and I will answer you.
Leaders — it’s time to step up and lead. This is your call to greatness.
