Life Can Be A Circus
Keep the circus going on inside you, keep it going, don’t take anything too seriously, it’ll all work out in the end. – David Niven
Week three of my adventures in China is about to begin. It’s been an incredible experience so far.
After overcoming many unexpected challenges and obstacles last week, it was only fitting over the weekend for our team to drive down to Guangzhou to attend the famous Chimelong International Circus.
If you ever make your way over to this part of the world, put the Chimelong International Circus on your list of things to do. It’s simply amazing and there are leadership/life lessons to be applied.
Your life in leadership can resemble a circus at times. Think about it – there are many moving parts–a ton of distractions, near disasters, a ton of thrills- all while entertaining the masses.
Regardless of what life or leadership throws at you, here are a few things worth remembering- a few lessons from the circus…
Laughter is good medicine because life is too short
Along the way, don’t forget to have some fun
Even clowns serve a purpose
When the show is spectacular no one will remember your mistakes
And yes, the show must go on!
Until next time!
