As I was drinking my morning coffee today, I was thinking about the state of our country & world right now. I was thinking about the shutdowns that are going on in Europe and the evident shutdown that seems to be in our very near future. A pandemic! Who would have thought? One year ago, our world was what we all knew as “normal,” without a pandemic, now in just a blink of an eye, we are living a new “normal” and it can be challenging at times… I get it!
Today, I wanted to write to encourage you all to be mindful of what you are telling yourself. Yes, we want Covid to go away as fast as it arrived. But, that is not in the foreseeable future. Adjusting to the new norm is what we all have to do, if we want to survive this monster.
As a business empowerment and mastermind coach, some of the things I hear from my clients:
I feel like I’m in a fog. I am having a hard time focusing. I just wish this would all go away. How can I get through this? Is my business going to survive?
I cannot answer the question, is my business going to survive because there are many other factors that contribute to this. But, I can answer the question…How can I get through this!
We will all get through this if we are mindful of the thoughts and words we allow to get into our heads. Our minds are so powerful.
If you believe you can, then you will! If you believe you can’t, then you won’t!
The devil is listening and lingering on every word, every thought. If you allow negative thoughts to cloud your thinking, the devil has a hold of you now! Don’t give him/her the satisfaction of taking over your mindset.
Perhaps you are not reaching your goals? Maybe you are not getting quality referrals and growing your business like you want to. So much goes into this. The biggest contributing factor to your success, starts with your mindset and what you are telling yourself. The stories that we are telling ourselves can be holding us back. We make up the WHY and the WHAT of our story. We have the power to make the WHY and the WHAT work for us or against us.
As humans, we all carry around limiting beliefs that come from a variety of sources. COVID19 may be contributing to your limiting beliefs right now. This IS temporary! How long it will last, I cannot tell you, but it is temporary. We will find a cure. We will someday look back on this. But, today it is real.
What are you telling yourself about the Coronavirus that is holding you back?
Do any of these sound familiar?
I can’t sell, no-one is buying. My network is lost, no-one is networking. No-one needs my service right now. Virtual meetings are not for me.
These beliefs, thoughts and words are actually hurting your business! Instead, you need to turn them around! Make your thoughts and words work for you!
Everyone wants my product! I can help so many people at home to shop right now! I can grow my network by joining virtual networking groups/meetings! There are so many people that need what I have to offer! I love connecting and meeting people from all over in virtual meetings!
One last tip I have for you today… limit your news and current affairs exposure each day. If your thoughts and actions are affected by the outside world, limit your exposure and find more positive and uplifting events and people to connect with. If you are struggling with focus and energy, changing this will have a huge impact on your mood.
