The other day I saw an incredible stat. There has been over 2 BILLION media mentions of the Wuhan Coronavirus in the last few months. The next closest outbreak had only 60 million media mentions during its entire time.
This got me thinking about how much this can impact people and create fear for them - with this much media bombardment, how it could it not.
As I was thinking on this, something awesome happened. My daughter had a breakthrough. She had been trying to learn how to ride her bike for some time without training wheels and we had worked on it together - she was getting close, but just hadn't been able keep her balance for a long period.
On her own, she went out and started practicing in the driveway and after 10-15 mins, she can running to tell me she did it. So, I went out to watch her and sure enough, she had figured it out and had a breakthrough. It was amazing to see the sense of freedom that came over her as she realized the capability she now had.
As I stood there, proud of her accomplishment, it made me think of all the other awesome things that were happening right now in our lives and businesses - even in the midst of a pandemic.
So, I decided to sit down and write out 20 Awesome things happening in my life right now. It was a great exercise. And I was energized as I got to 20 and could continue to name more.
