Have you ever read the book “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”? It’s a classic children’s story that teaches an important lesson about facing your fears and pushing through obstacles.
In the story, the family encounters various obstacles, and when faced with each one, they say, “We can’t go over it, we can’t go under it! We’ve got to go through it!”
As activity providers, we can learn from this message of feeling the fear and doing it anyway. We often face obstacles and challenges in our work, whether it’s dealing with difficult customers, navigating new regulations, or putting out a new bit of marketing. But by adopting a growth mindset and pushing through our fears, we can overcome these obstacles and create even better businesses for ourselves and our customers.
For example, let’s say you’re starting a new activity that you’ve never done before. You may feel scared or unsure about how it will turn out. Instead of letting your fears hold you back, embrace the message of “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” and push through your fears and go straight through the challenge. Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you can do it, and give it your best shot.
By adopting this mindset, we can build resilience and confidence in ourselves as activity providers. We can learn from our mistakes and failures, and use them to improve our activities, our businesses, and our lives.
