Stop waiting for permission.
Ever noticed how it's the people who've never succeeded that tell us what to do? The people who never started a business tell us how we'll fail, how hard it is, to be realistic and give up? People who never faced anxiety or depression tell us to “get over it” as if they understood it? But they don't tell us how to get over it.
Ask someone who did something, who tried and succeeded with their challenges and you'll hear how it works, how you can do it, how it may be a lot of work but do-able. To go for it!
If you want success, spend time with the successful. If you want to change, talk to those who have changed. If you want to be happy, spend time with people who make you happy.
If we keep getting told we'll fail, that life is hard, that the system is stacked against us, and if the people around us drag us down and make us unhappy then we need to spend time with some different people! Expand your horizons, meet others who support you (even online). That’s one way we can grow!
Right now, there are loads of complainers, and negative people venting. If that worth anything? Does it help us? Protect your attention and mental energy and put them into things that do help you.
Today, the priority should be your own emotional wellbeing. That’s what allows us to be successful in all aspects of life, be it looking after others, our career, learning new things, or anything else.
When we come out of lockdown I hope you’re feeling well and happy. That’s the most important thing we can work on while socially distancing.
As for learning a new language, getting ahead on study, building those new shelves, and all the others things people say we should get done during this, well sure if you have the energy and want to feel free, but wellbeing comes first. Don’t let other people’s priorities drive your agenda or mood.
You are the master of your own thoughts and you get to decide where energy is put.
Take care of yourself and stay safe.
Change is easier than you think!
Have a great day,
Online appointments are available during this time.
