We are hearing about uncertainty and unprecedented times everywhere. But, how true is this picture the media is painting?
When have times been absolutely certain?
The current situation is simply the expression of how quickly our lives can change at any given time. Unless…You decide to take charge of your future.
What I’m seeing A LOT at the moment are people who feel lost, unmotivated, frustrated and without clear perspective. This makes me sad. Not because the times we live in are uncertain, but because LIFE ITSELF is full of uncertainty.
Imagine complete certainty in your life… If you knew exactly how your life is going to play out, would that be such a great thought? We wouldn’t be able to feel happiness or joy, because we knew everything already. Our life would become stale and loose its flavour.
At the end of the day, all that matters is how well we deal with surprises and how open we are to change. While seemingly half of the population has been living in discomfort and even fear, many have used this time not only to reassess their current situation, but used the opportunities to grow. Businesses have been established, second incomes have been set up and the demand for online learning and self-development is bigger than ever.
Which side are you on? You decide.
The reason I’m sad to see people frustrated in these times, is that they are not taking full responsibility for their reality. They are not consciously choosing a way they want their life to look like, commit to an ideal and move everything they got to get there. Once you find out how easy it is, you can create anything you want int life.
As a coach I almost want to shake people and want to say: “I’ve been there. It can be so easy. All you have to do is CHOOSE”.
Now, I’m not shaking you, but I’m asking you, to take a moment in your busy day to set the tone for the next week. Just 10 minutes to remind yourself that everything you do today is a choice.
What are you choosing right now?
If you are unhappy with where you are, decide exactly what you want, commit to achieving it and take one step today. Truth is, if you already don’t have what you want, what’s there to lose? You can’t fail by trying something new.
Truth is, you can’t go wrong being yourself and following your dreams.
All it takes is choice, commitment and aligned action to be yourself.
Which side are you taking?
