Retreat

This month I want to talk to you about the idea of retreating. I know it can have a negative connotation, like you’re afraid or backing down, but let’s change that.

The dictionary definition of retreat is: An act or process of withdrawing especially from what is difficult, dangerous, or disagreeable.

Most of us have been taught to keep going in the face of adversity and when things get hard you try harder. That can be helpful in some cases but not all.

Often times in life we may be facing formidable challenges and situations that are very difficult to tackle and overcome. Continuing to move forward can be the wrong decision and deciding instead to take a step back may be the best possible action towards finding a solution.

I suggest you think about this idea of retreating next time you hit a wall. Think of it as a form of regrouping so you can come back to the situation stronger.

All My Best,
Roy
