3 Ways to Stay Strong During the COVID-19 Pandemic

3 Ways to Stay Strong During the COVID-19 Pandemic
  1. Don’t quit your purpose because of tough times

    A crisis should never be the time for you to quit your purpose. I know difficult times don’t make you stronger, but do they do reveal who you are. Like a mirror, they reflect your inner self. This is why there is no better time than now to examine and improve the quality of your mental, spiritual and even physical life. Instead of waiting for a crisis to pass, decide to grow through it and take actions that will help you refine your existing skills and develop new ones. This will prepare you for the next cataclysmic event. It all hinges on your decision not to quit. I am telling you now, don’t quit, grow!

  2. Live in the “right now” and don’t worry about tomorrow

    “Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. Ask yourself: How do I know this thing I am worrying about will really come to pass?” —Dale Carnegie

    Enjoy the moment you are experiencing right now. Time can’t be managed, but your life can. And what you should be doing is looking for opportunities to deliberately create memorable moments that will last a lifetime. This is the best way to prevent the seeds of regret from germinating later in your life. Even if there are some dark days ahead, at least you will have memories of the good times to carry you through the storm. If your today is bad, don’t add to the pain by doing nothing to make it better. I get it, you can’t control everything, but you can contribute to your own peace. Stop worrying and make the present moment the best day of your life. Live right now!

  3. Kill your fear by taking creative risks

    As a creative professional, the fearless leaders of great global B2B companies solicit my expertise to craft campaigns that will make their brands unforgettable. These leaders will explore and take any creative risk to win. Average companies, on the other hand, do the complete opposite. They spend an enormous amount of time thinking of all the safe ways to maintain their status quo. And there is only one reason why—fear. In the end, the results are always wack. They over use their analytical skills to think of all the risks, effectively depleting their imagination. Here is what I have for you: take creative risks to build a better life. Instead of imagining what could go wrong, dare to think of the possibilities and create something. The power of creativity is the ability to fearlessly imagine a better reality. Every day you get up, decide that you will not settle or allow fear to paralyze you. Use your mental power to kill mediocrity and exercise your creative juices.
