Right now, change seems to be the only constant. We’re living in unprecedented times – too much is changing, and way too fast. We don’t know what tomorrow holds, and not knowing is scary.
In order to survive in a constantly changing world, we need to be adaptable. That means being willing to try new things.
If we adjust the way we respond to shifts happening around us, we are able to extend our peripheral vision of life. This allows you to see out of the corner of your eye. A glimpse into things you normally would not see.
- When we try, we might just get the desired outcomes – or we’ll take a L and learn a life lesson. I am reminded of a saying by Joseph Campbell. He said: ‘The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.’
- When we are resilient we quickly recover from setbacks and difficulties. This is because we draw from our inner strength and persevere. Having self-belief goes a long way in motivating positive outcomes even though situations right now may seem dire.
- By cultivating a mindset of non-attachment we are able to let go of the past and the future. It helps when you slow your pace and continually affirm yourself. Know that you are enough and remind yourself of the times when you succeeded in a task.
This fosters confidence and allows you to stay grounded when the ground is shifting beneath you.
While we’re taking extra precautions to keep safe; taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking your daily vitamin C.
