If you know anything about me, you know my brain works in acronyms. More often than not, I’m in the audience at one of our author’s events as they are speaking to the crowd. My brain kicks into gear and starts culling their info into program titles for them to host as future webinars. It just happens. I have no clue how to stop it. I always come prepared with paper and pen to take notes of these random brain sparks to share with them after their talk.
So, as I’m standing in line at a local coffee shop the other day, I hear the couple behind me lamenting over the current political climate in the US. One is adamantly stating her position while the other continues to point out all the negative repercussions from her perspective. They are not arguing, but rather having a civil debate — both looking for an answer to a seemingly unsolvable problem. They agree with each other’s opinions, they agree something needs to be done, and they agree it’s time to take action and do SOMETHING to move things in a positive direction.
My “acronym brain” kicks into gear . . .
I realize they had both reached their Adamant Negative Turning-point (A.N.T.). They were fed up and motivated to take action. And sometimes, that’s what it takes. We have to find our A.N.T. in order to be motivated to want change.
Just like the trail of ants leading to the “sweet stuff” of crumbs under a table, A.N.T.s lead us into action, which leads us into finding a better way of doing things. The exciting part is that when we share our Adamant Negative Turning-point (A.N.T.), we find others who have similar A.N.T.s, and together we can change the world!
If, like many of our authors, you have lived through (and survived to tell!) your own A.N.T. story, perhaps it is time to share your knowledge and your wisdom.
After all, ants are known to move mountains!
