My answer to this question is : Enjoy your season.
It’s something I’ve written in my 2nd book- Achieve Unstoppable Success In Any Economy.
In our work life, we face numerous seasons: slow economy seasons, conflict-filled seasons, opportunity- and problem-rich seasons, retirement seasons, growth and learning seasons, promotion and layoff seasons.
The most challenging season of all is the season of silence. It is when you are working hard, putting in the effort, and yet you see no results. But you’ve got to know that most of the time, before things come to pass, there is a season of silence where you are not seeing anything changing. It seems the needle doesn’t move.
Did you know that most people across the globe get discouraged and give up on their dreams during the season of silence? We don’t realize this: while you are putting in the effort, behind the scenes, changes are taking place. The universe is lining up the right opportunities — like that promotion or the right people you need. So while you are passing through the season of silence, dig in your heels and believe that you will see the results. As the biblical scriptures read, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.”
Don’t give up just because you don’t see anything happening on the outside. Know that a lot is happening inside. Just as a seed takes root inside the ground in darkness, so are your results shaping up in the season of silence. Trust your actions, trust the process, and most of all, trust the success within you. Nothing is permanent in this world and so never take any season too seriously.
