This won't be a long post, but it is an important one.
At this point, we are over 4 months into the Wuhan Coronavirus being unleashed on the world. Every aspect of life has been impacted and in many cases turned upside down. A lot of people when this first began, thought that it would come and go rather quickly and things would go back to normal.
I hoped for that, but at the same time I sat back and mentally prepared. I asked myself, what I would do if this went on for 6 months, a year, 2 years, etc? What if things never got back to being the same and in the midst of it all, the world changed, the way business is done changed - basically, what if everything got turned upside down? Would I be able to handle it? Would I be able to adapt? What would I need to do and prepare myself and my businesses to do?
You may have asked some of the same questions. And as we get into the 5th month of lockdowns, business shutdowns, riots, and general unease throughout the world, it is most important to remember one thing.
I see a lot of people beginning to crack or even break under the pressure, fear, uncertainty, and changes to their lives and businesses. As entrepreneurs, we must lead the way. Change and dealing with problems and and challenges are our every day lives. And yes, now we are throwing in the virus and all this other stuff - but we must remain and stand strong. We must prepare for things to go longer and be worse than we ever thought and at the same time, power through it.
Entrepreneurs were made for these times and we are the ones who will help pull the world out of it. We will do it with our will, our faith, our spirit, and never give up attitude. I just wanted to remind you of this. Stay strong, endure, and keep pushing. These times will eventually fade to different and better ones - just be prepared to keep going until those times come.
Sometimes we just need to be reminded of reality and the facts of life. No matter how much we keep them at bay or seek to change them, there are certain truths that will win out over time. And there are certain truths that when we live by them have proven to make us more successful, happier, and free'er in our lives.
I was thinking about this the order day in the midst of much of the chaos around the world and started making this list. While it's not complete and something I will probably noodle on for a while, I wanted to share it with you. I hope it will spur you to think critically and differently and question what is being hailed as "normal" in our lives.
Sometimes, we just need a little inspiration and a good video with a uplifting message is one of the best ways to get it. Below are 3 of my favorite inspiration videos I want to share with you. Enjoy!
