With Crisis Comes Opportunity, But Only If You Own It

Presenter: Kelly Bentley, CEO & Founder of The Rebel Element

Life was good. Young, wild and carefree some may say (just like many of you) – brought up in Zim on the Zambezi River, a Global Executive, earning 6 figures monthly, married to the man of my dreams, with all my family and friends happy and healthy around me.

On the 2nd September 2019 that all changed, a new chapter in my book of life started and let’s just say the irony of courage is, you never quite know how much you have until it’s tested.

In the space of 12-months I lost my mum, my grandfather, my job, then my business, then all our savings and then I got sick. Consciously or unconsciously, I played a role in all of it and what I was certain of, was how I decided to show up for each piece of it would not only have an impact on my personal growth but also my legacy and contribution to this chaotic, but beautiful world we find ourselves in.

Each crisis presented an opportunity, the question was only whether I’d choose to rise to it or fall victim to it.

What will I learn?

  • Own your consequence, or it will own you
  • A third party will never be as invested in your physical and mental health as you are or can be
  • Play your part, one reshare can save a life, you have that power
  • Know your values and don’t be shy to stick to them, it’s the new ‘in’ thing
