This month, Jon’s article, Using Your Watershed Moment to Create Resiliency and Take Risks, is featured in the Denha & Associates, PLLC Blog.
Every business or idea started with a watershed moment. A moment in time where you, as the leader, became inspired to do what you do. Talking with people about their watershed moments can be truly inspiring. By recognizing our watershed moments, we’ll have a foundation that will help to build a resilient attitude and perspective to defend against any negative situation that may arise.
We must remember our watershed moments. Ruth Zuckerman, founder of SoulCycle and Flywheel, knows all about these watershed moments and the way hers created the resiliency to chase her passion. She went from dreaming of dancing for a living to a desperate position after letting that dream die. It was in this moment she felt a push to join a daily spin class, which led to her starting SoulCycle. She recalls her watershed moment this way, “I feel that I was so desperate for something at that juncture in my life. As I said, it was traumatic, and I wasn’t really experiencing much pleasure. And there was something, there was kind of an energy I felt from the [spinning] room, from looking from the outside in, [it] felt very intense and focused, and group energy and community.”
