Trust the Process ~ by Mark Trewartha

Trust the Process is a slogan used by fans of the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers, though it has since become popular elsewhere in sports and culture.  Coined during a rough patch for the team, it basically means “things may look bad now, but we have a plan in place to make it better.”


The year 2021 was the year to “Bridge the Gap” for the High 5 Hospitality family after rising through the adversity of 2020. 

It was a year that challenged not only our organization but our industry as a whole.  Those challenges opened the door for us to overcome and to celebrate new wins.  However, it came with new founded mental pressures with yourself/the business to stay the course and TRUST THE PROCESS. 

As we reflect on that journey recently, the calendar year that was, we should embrace the challenges that we faced because it provided us the opportunity to work on our mental toughness, grow our level of determination, and practice the ability to focus on the tasks that are in front of us on a daily basis.   


We have all gone through the mental mayhem that is necessary to make you an expert. When you come from the place of trusting the process, you have power. 

The POWER in the process is the knowledge that you gain. 

You are learning about yourself daily.

You are learning how to deal with adversity daily.

You are learning strength and fortitude daily. 

You are learning how to build yourself up to be powerful and leap any hurdle in your path.

The PROCESS is necessary.

You now have the power to choose your mindset through the obstacles. 

You now have the power to battle the challenges thrown your way.

You now have the power to be courageous through trials and tribulation.

You RISE up out of the ashes with a fresh determination to CONQUER the future. 

You must continue to trust the process.

You must continue to believe in the process.

You must continue to be strong through the process. 

You have to continue to believe and understand that patience through YOUR process is necessary.

You have to go through the battle to understand it. 

You have to go through the battle to propel yourself to the next level of YOUR life. 


Team High 5 Hospitality:  We have a plan that was communicated just last month.  We have the right leaders in place, leading from the front.  We will continue to lean on the experiences and expertise that this journey has taught us and we will CONTINUE to overcome all obstacles that may come our way.

All you have to do is….. Trust the Process
