Anytime I hear the phrase "Against the Wind" I am reminded of one of the many unforgettable hits that Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Bob Seger wrote and performed.
According to information published on Wikipedia, Seger said in a radio interview that the song was initially inspired by his time in high school cross country. He also described the song as "about trying to move ahead, keeping your sanity and integrity at the same time.” No wonder the song became a chart-topping hit and is still used today. I’ve always said that:
“If you’re not facing headwinds, you’re not moving fast enough!”
After all, the only time you’re likely to consistently avoid headwinds is when you’re just sitting still and letting the wind take you where it may. When you chart a course and expect the best out of you and your team, the execution of your plan will involve facing headwinds so breathe in that fresh cool breeze, keep your sanity and integrity, and enjoy the ride because eventually there will be a time when your efforts give you a chance to enjoy some wind at your back. Let Seger inspire you with his true-life success story and realize that you too can conquer the winds that you face.
If you need help getting inspired and your headwinds are holding you down, let’s jump on a call to see if it would be a good fit for us to work together.
