The Young Professionals of the Palm Beaches (YPOP) Learn About Reinventing Yourself in a Crisis Part 3

Over 35 young professionals joined our monthly virtual YPOP meeting series - Part 3/4; “Reinventing Yourself; Growing stronger in a Crisis; how to not only survive but to thrive and reinvent yourself” on July 30.
The panel of speakers included Board & Trustee Members:
Each individual speaker shared how a professional “crisis” situation resulted in reinventing their business, career choices, and a resulting “strategic, planned, and needed pivot” they had to make to not only survive but thrive.
The common themes to their stories were:
  • Be honest, have integrity in all you do and understand the importance of building trusting relationships throughout your career at all stages; to simplify “Do what you say you will do – if you tell someone you will do something – follow through and do it”!
  • Live your passion and ask the hard question “Am I doing my passion” – what do I have to offer the world. Know your clients and inquisitively determine – what do they need that I have to offer that they don’t even know that they need yet – how can I be out in front of them to help them solve a problem?
  • Volunteer and be active outside of your “day job” doing your passion and to explore your passions – good things happen when you volunteer and “give wholeheartedly” without a motive of seeking something in return. Make your community stronger without seeking a reward.
  • Seek advice, wisdom, knowledge, counseling and guidance from a mentor(s); find people who have more life experience than you and ask for their guidance.
  • Declare, Determine, Decide and Define your own success; say to yourself every day - “This will work” – believe in yourself and determine that failure is not an option – choose a daily mindset of success, make a plan, be enthusiastic about your plan and do three things each day to advance your plan – even when you cannot see success ahead of you.
  • When feeling overwhelmed, welcome it, name it, recognize it and tell others and ask yourself – What are 3 things I can do right now to change my situation for the better?
  • Be flexible and open to change, as unexpected and undesirable things and circumstances are bound to appear, that are beyond your control. So your job is to ask yourself – what can I do, then create a plan, pivot, be flexible, and ask for help. Repeatedly ask yourself, “What do other people need, that I uniquely have to offer the world”? Determine what this is and then give it abundantly, generously, and enthusiastically, without seeking any personal gain in return. It is likely that as a result, good things will happen in your life.
