As most of you know, the above bike from Wheelys is an complete marvel and fits our mission very well. Unfortunately, it has been taken a while to get to us because of various circumstances. It has been delayed numerous of times all the while as we plan to connect and set up this business. We have moved forward rather intently with the expectation for this bike and yet it keeps getting pushed back.
So what do you do when what you have planned doesn’t work? What do you do when your whole company idea is wrapped around an idea? Well- you get creative and innovative!
Thankfully the bike is only a simpler way for us to serve coffee and create relationships that can have an eternal impact on a person’s life. With the use of some electricity and water and various supplies, it can be done! Even though the delay of this bike has been disappointing, it has allowed us to be thankful for the skills and supplies we have acquired so that we can be ready to do events, large to small without the bike.
Don’t get me wrong, this BIKE IS A HUGE PART of this business and relationship building. I am not trying to undermine its purpose and our goal at all. Instead, in the presence of ‘lack’ a new approach or the original model is doable still. Instead of being impatient and limited by what ‘we want to do’, we are thankful for this set back as it helps us to be thankful for what we have learned and improve on that.
How about you? What set backs have come into your life that could be opportunities for you to be stronger and thankful for what you do have? Start thinking with gratitude, and patience is not too long off.
