I’m back home after some time away and I’ve got the full newsletter for you this week. One theme that keeps popping into my head is “control.” What do we truly have control over? One thing we’ve learned over the past couple of months is how little control we have in certain aspects of our lives. Who would’ve guessed a pandemic would shut down the world? While there was not a lot that we could do to get ahead of it, there is a lot we can do now and in the future as a result.
Our thoughts and actions are all we control. We must willingly accept this and move on. After the pandemic hit, did you sulk and wonder why this was happening or did you try to adapt to the changing situation? Taking action and adapting your plans is the only way forward. Cultivating this mindset is a skill that can be improved through work. To advance in this chaotic world, you must learn to feed your mind with the right thoughts. From there, it is about taking action and not getting bogged down in other’s perceptions. We do not control other’s responses to our work. No matter what we do in life, some people will hate it, some will love it and some won’t care. Just keep moving forward, adjust, adapt, and become resilient.
If you are still stuck wondering what is next, now is the time to take action and become the author of your life. While you can get help along the way, it is up to you to take action. I believe in you! I hope you can find some motivation in the links this week.
