Food For Thought: When there’s darkness, light a match…
💡 We all may experience dark and troublesome times in life – but what differs those who progress vs those who stagnate, is how they tackle these situations…
In 2015, my own world fell apart in various areas of my life, and so whether it’s a business gone horribly wrong, relationship matters or career challenges, by following the steps below, one can potentially change what is deemed ‘un-fixable’ in life to “fix-able”…
✅ Be a parent to your mind
➡️ Dark places are hard to be in. What changed my thinking was when someone said I needed to talk to my mind like a child. I needed to comfort my mind with this one sentence: “Everything is going to be okay.”
✅ Declare war on your fear
➡️ Fears can drive our life when we are in a dark place. By declaring war on my fears, we challenge them to a duel. Write down a list of your biggest fears and then commit to facing them, slowly.
✅ Selfinvestment is the best investment
➡️ By investing in a personal development course, coach or mentor, we ignite a catalyst for change.
💡 Cultivating gratitude helps us re-frame our perspective. When we learn how to shift our mindset from what we think we want, need, or must accomplish to be successful, towards an attitude of appreciation for all that we have now, fulfilment arrives in our personal and professional lives.
Many may ask, how then does gratitude and entrepreneurship go hand-in-hand in light of boosting a business?
✅ As entrepreneurs, stress may be evident especially at the early stages of a business lifecycle, and may result in depression, anxiety, or substance abuse.
➡️ By practicing gratitude, we create a powerful internal energetic force that supports our physical and emotional health during turbulent times.
✅ Remember, what we focus on expands, and so, whatever we put our attention on, we get more of. Focusing on problems only begets more problems❗️
➡️ To counteract this, and add some other benefits to our life, we include gratitude and optimism as a #habit i.e. If we always look for the bad, are we not missing out on what’s good❓
✅ Many entrepreneurs believe happiness is a “nice to have” luxury that arrives after a lifetime of sacrifice. The truth…that’s bullsh*t❗️
➡️ When we are focused on creating meaningful purpose, impact and lead a life with intent, we begin to find connections and happiness in all we do, from people to clients to wealth creation.
