Would you like to thrive in this time? Thrive in your business success? Thrive in your relationships? Thrive in your spiritual growth?
That describes me right now, and I would love to share it with you!
As a coach and mentor, people have been asking me what my secret is – how can I radiate positive energy and be so joyful. They want to know what they can do to not only survive in this current climate, but also how they can thrive. In this post, I will be sharing with you my top three pieces of advice and be sure to read to the end where I will also share with you a very special opportunity and gift.
1-Put That Bubble On And Seal It!
The majority of people are glued to their television sets or their phones – trawling through social media and news bulletins, none of which offer any more information than the one they looked at an hour ago. What does that do for you? It fills you with negative energy. That energy festers within you and leaves you feeling fearful, worried, powerless. Your productivity levels drop, you lose motivation, you lose focus. Your health is impacted as you resonate in a chronic state of stress.
Put yourself in a bubble! Limit the time you spend watching the news or on social media where as a collective other people are sharing bad news, or frustrations, or fears. Surround yourself with positive empowering messages. Watch videos, read blogs, listen to podcasts from people who are empowering, who can help you in your goals, who inspire you, who motivate you. If people want to off-load onto you, politely decline, or at least put a time limit on it. Focus on your immediate surroundings and what you have, not on what you don’t have. The more you engage with positive people and messages, the more it will help to propel you forwards!
You may be feeling powerless and filled with worry right now. Your business may have taken a hit, your health may be affected, you may feel trapped indoors and feel resentful that someone is making you do this. You may want to go out or your holiday may have been cancelled. An event that you spent all year planning may have been stopped, or you work premises forced to close. You want to DO something about this, but what on earth CAN YOU DO?!!! Your mood may shift from one of powerlessness, fear and lethargy to one of frustration, resentment, and anger.
All these feelings are so understandable and so natural. The key is in surrender and acceptance. At this stage, there is nothing you can do to change what is so huge and what is going on all around the world. It is affecting everyone in some way or other. So firstly, take solace in knowing that you are not alone. The sooner you focus on what you CAN do rather than what you CAN’T, the faster your energy will shift into one of positivity. If you think of trying to get through a brick wall – you can hammer away at it, try to climb over it, try to dig under it – try anything to get through it and exhaust yourself in the process. Alternatively, you could look around you, look around at where you are now. What resources do you have around you. What gifts are staring you in the face? What opportunities are here for you on this side of the wall? This will bring you back to being present; to being in the NOW, because NOW is all there is, and so what can you do NOW with what you have. Rest assured, the brick wall will come down. It will come down on its own when the time is right and how great will you feel if you had been able to make the most of what was around you and use your energy on that, rather than trying to knock down a wall that was always going to collapse eventually.
3- Connect With Opportunity
When it seems like the doors are closing on you, it become increasingly difficult to feel purposeful and seek out opportunity. You may start telling yourself that no one has any money to spend, so why would they buy your programs or invest in your business. You may think there is no point pursuing a particular business venture. What will then happen is you will resonate in this level of energy, and even though your words and actions may seem no different, the energy behind it will be one that doesn’t attract success to you.
Tell yourself a different story! The direct route may indeed be flooded, but that’s not to say the diverted route isn’t just as effective. True – what you may have tried before isn’t necessarily the best approach right now, but how can you de-focus your attention in order to see where the other routes may be; in order to see where the other opportunities lie. If you believe there is way, there will be a way and you will create it. Do whatever may help you with this – some people set daily intentions, some write affirmations, some visualise the end goal, some put a check in their pocket to make themselves believe what they desire is already in their reality. There are so many things I could suggest, I could write a whole blog about just that, but my point is, to have success, you have to BE success, and by taking a step back and slowing down, you will see the opportunities available to you.
