It is something we’ve all faced in life and will face again…a “Strategic Inflection Point.” Whether personally, or in your career or business this is something anyone who strives for excellence or who desires to grow as an individual will face. This is the time of transition of a person’s or companies’ competitive position that requires them to change their current path and adapt to new situations or risks in order to continue growing and profiting. A lot of the time this comes at a “Breaking Point” in that person or companies process.
A Breaking Point is — the point at which a person gives way under stress, or the point at which a situation becomes critical, or the point at which something loses force or validity. I want to point out that this is none other than a POINT…this is not a negative or a positive…but rather just a point in which we have a decision to make.
Too many times at this point we give up…or we give in and quit. The circumstances are difficult and the momentum seems to be sparse and we are at our “Breaking Point” and it’s time to throw in the towel. Or is it?
I want to encourage you that it’s at these very times that we are to PUSH just a little harder. You have heard the quote “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”…that’s right! It’s not time to “throw in the towel,” it’s time to not just “toe the line,” or to even to “think outside of the box,” but rather GET RID OF THE BOX! It will take the bold to make it past the breaking point!
It’s at this point where you will get your Breakthrough! This is an offensive thrust that penetrates and carries one beyond the defensive line into a sudden advance, especially in knowledge or technique. This is when you don’t give in but rather BUST IN!
You got this!! Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” So when you are standing at the locked door with seemingly nothing left exhausted and discouraged, remember that it is not time to lay down and die but rather it’s time for your BREAKTHROUGH!
”To be a success in business, be daring, be first, be different…and don’t ever give up”.
