16 Apr Get Motivated by Awesome Things
If you’ve been working with a business coach on becoming a more effective leader or you’ve been receiving private coaching on relationship building, this can be a very challenging time. It’s hard – if not impossible – to practice the lessons you’ve learned while you’re staying safe and following the stay-at-home orders in place across the country.
You’re not going to find a life coach who can tell you the best way to survive a pandemic based on their experiences. No one – not even the best life coach – has been through something like what we’re going through now as Covid-19 sweeps the globe, taking lives and putting serious obstacles in the pathway to personal and business success.
This might be a good time to focus on a quote from Deepak Chopra, who once said, “Obstacles are opportunities in disguise.” But it can be hard to see that when you are looking down.
How to Stay Positive
It’s pretty safe to say that everyone is struggling right about now. We’re all trying to figure out the best way to move forward. And we all have good days. And, boy, do we have bad days! And that’s ok. Whatever you’re feeling – fear, loneliness, the blues – is authentic and understandable. You just don’t want to let yourself get stuck in those feelings.
A great way to shine a little light on even the darkest days is to think of a few things you are grateful for. Some people use gratitude journals as a way to help them focus on the good things in life. Others mentally list the things they are thankful for.
Neil Pasricha went a step further. When he was troubled by rising sea levels, global conflict and the economic situation, he started a blog called 1000 Awesome Things as a way to remind himself of all the little things that make life sweet. Millions of people now read his blog, buy his book and have been inspired to celebrate the simple pleasures of daily life.
On behalf of Orlando life coach Max Jensen, we wish you all the best on your journey during these troubled waters.
