2 Ways to Thrive in Isolation!
This lockdown has radically changed our lives. Just a few months ago, we had no idea our ‘world’ would be confined to our homes!
This crisis is a powerful reminder of how important freedom is – and how much we need human connection!
Remember you are not alone. Because what is DIFFERENT here is that everyone is impacted! Your neighbour, mom, boss and friends as well as your counterparts around the world are all going through something similar.
So, it’s important to remember: Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. Viktor E. Frankl
This is the challenge each of us must rise to! If we’re going to be stuck at home, we must make the most of it. In this BLOG I want to share 2 of many things you can do to come out of this crisis far better than you were before it started.
Gain a New Skill with Online Learning
There are so many opportunities online to gain a new skill and they’re growing by the day!
Grow your personal or creative skills or choose a new skill to learn and take back to work with online training providers like Cousera or Udemy for example. There are many other providers.
If there’s a skill you always wanted to learn, search for it. But be sure to read the course descriptions thoroughly, check reviews if there are any – and check money-back guarantees as you need to!
And with so many learning options ranging from FREE to very affordable and more expensive options, there will be something out there just perfect for you.
Explore your Vision
Rather than watching endless news streams, you can choose to focus on a bigger picture – your future. What do you want from the rest of your life and the life of your business? What would you be disappointed you did NOT do? Where do you envision yourself in 10 years?
Having a clear vision of how you want yo be is a powerful motivator. A vision helps us work towards our goals, take action and make change. Soon, we’ll all be super-busy again and a vision might be just what you need stay focused!
Here are 5 questions to ponder or journal around to go deeper:
- What do you desire or yearn for in your life and your business?
- How do you want to feel?
- What do you really, really want to be different?
- What would have happened in 3 years time such that your life is spectacular and you feel magnificent about yourself?
- What’s your dream for this lifetime? Imagine you’re 90 years old and looking back over your life; what did you do that made you proud and happy?
TIP: Remember to think possibility not probability! Don’t limit yourself and your ideas because you don’t believe something is likely. Instead believe it’s possible – and even if you don’t get all the way there, you may get close – or even find something better along the way!
