I was asked earlier in the year by one of my clients – “How do you keep up a positive mindset with current world events?” The Russian invasion of Ukraine, the energy crisis, not to mention Covid are taking their toll on us all, so how do you carry on serving your clients with such an oppressive backdrop?
Here are my thoughts (and the steps that I follow myself to keep going)
You have to keep showing up – hiding in business helps literally no-one
I learnt this with lockdown in March 2020. You have a choice, show up and serve, or hide and feel worse. Disappearing online, reducing your business related activities and disconnecting doesn’t have any positive impact on global events. It denies all the people that you can help, influence and inspire with your words and wisdom. You never know who really needs to read your post or receive your services, and the impact that you are having.
Do what you can
On a similar note feeling guilty doesn’t assist anyone either (again I learnt this in the early days of Covid 19). Instead why not focus on what you can do. Making a donation, praying if that feels appropriate, or signing petitions all are positive steps that you can take.
Keep working on you
As you will have heard me say before, it is your mental programming that it running the show – your subconscious is basically like a tape player, it runs the same patterns and programs on repeat, and searches for proof of what you already believe to be true. If you believe that everything is against you, business is hard, no one wants your services then current events will just support this.
Why not commit to working on your mindset right now, changing the ‘tape’, replacing some of your mental programming with new positive messages? Affirmations, gratitude, meditation, visualisation, hypnosis there are so many easy steps to try, and trust me these really make a difference.
