I don’t know where this saying came from, however this week it has popped up for some of my clients and myself.
The phrase in and of itself can be confronting. “Confront the brutal facts.”
What are “the brutal facts”?
Brutal facts are things we may or may not know that are getting in the way of us achieving what we want to achieve.
We use the word “brutal” because there can be no denying the facts, even though on some level that’s exactly what we want to do.
Brutal because sometimes that’s how we receive the feedback.
One time I was complaining to Ross about how unhappy I was with something he had done. “That’s your shit Shirl”, he said. “You deal with it.”
Ouch! He was right.
Is there an area of your life that’s not working as well as it could be right now?
If so, are you willing to confront the brutal facts?
Are you willing to take a deep dive into the issue?
Are you willing to hear and accept the feedback?
Are you willing to take the necessary action to change it?
Now’s a really good time to do so.
Let me know what you discover and if you need support, reach out.
Another saying for you that was written under an image of a person being doubled on a bicycle on the handlebars, through rain, “You won’t get to where you want to go, if you only travel on the sunny days.”
Be brave! I know you can be.
Confront the brutal facts.
