Right now, everybody is still freaking out. It's been some months, and with all the unknown and everything that's going on in the market and with the layoffs in business...Coronavirus, are we all going to get it? What's going to happen? Living in constant fear. You know, companies and individuals are having to make a lot of pivots right now. Everyone is just feeling stuck, feeling paralyzed. Layoffs, safety concerns, uncertainty, fear for employees, fear for our families!
So today, what I'm going to do is teach you how to we can get unstuck and create results faster so that we can thrive long term. And, in doing so, we build our resilience so that if this ever happens again, anything like it, we'll be more prepared to get through it. The key, though, is that we cannot succeed or obtain the results that we want unless we muster the courage to face fear and our challenges head-on. And move away from that place of stuck that some of us may still be in.
All signs point to adjusting how we see and respond to the changes and challenges that are right in front of us, right now. So how can we see our challenges in a new and better light and strengthen our resilience muscle?
I bet you what you're thinking is "Is Heather telling us to be rah-rah and just ignore everything that's around us?! Ignore the risks and everything that's happening around the pandemic??!"
Absolutely not. We must understand risk. It's important that we understand what's happening in front of us, but that we don't allow it to overwhelm us or stop us from moving forward on our journey to wherever we were at before the pandemic. So the number 1 reason why most of us fail to see our challenges and our adversity differently is because of the unique lens we bring from our past, often from our childhood.
So this might sound a little strange or perplexing, but the truth is that many of us were raised to think in more limiting ways, and to live in fear of the unknown, of what's happening around us and feeling like we're not really in control. So often it's easier to just face up to the adversity in front of us. It seems easier to just to run away from it, or really to ignore it altogether. And a lot of people do that. They would rather sit in their home, close the door and say, "Okay, when this is over, call me. Call me out!"
But really, to thrive in this type of environment. We all need to know what we're facing and we need to show up differently. Often, you know, casting aside those the old lenses that we have brought with us from our past and replacing them with a new way to see things and conquer our current circumstances.
