050:  One Way To Handle The Storms Of Change [Podcast] – Todd Stocker.com


storms of change.001We all experience change in life.  Like storms forming on the horizon, change sweeps down and causes pressures that you need to handle.  But how do you do that?


ON THIS EPISODE:

Rory Vaden’s book Take The Stairs emphasizes the value of hard work, focus and discipline for success.  

Rory recalls, “In Co, where I grew up, we are world famous for the Rocky Mountains. When storms come they almost always brew from the west and roll out towards the east.

What cows do is very natural. Cows sense the storm coming from the west and so they start to try to run toward the east. The storm catches up with the cows rather quickly. And without knowing any better the cows continue to try to outrun the storm. But instead of outrunning the storm they actually run right along with the storm. Maximizing the amount of pain and time and frustration they experience from that storm!

What buffalo do on the other hand is very unique for the animal kingdom. Buffalo wait for the storm to cross right over the crest of the peak of the mountaintop and as the storm rolls over the ridge the buffalo turn and charge directly into the storm.

Instead of running east away from the storm they run west directly at the storm. By running at the storm they run straight through it. Minimizing the amount of pain and time and frustration they experience from that storm.

We should do the same.  Face the storms head on.
