How to Adapt and Overcome Any Challenge
Today’s post is timely as I want to provide you with tools on how to adapt and overcome any challenge. We’re all facing unknown territories right now. There’s still a lot of fear, panic, chaos and confusion around the coronavirus. Mostly, we don’t know how long this will go or how bad it may get.
Focus on what you can control
Life is happening FOR us right now, not TO us. It’s a choice to look at the current situation with fear or faith knowing we’re all going to recover – at some point. I highly suggest spending your time and energy wisely by focusing on what you can control – you.
Have a Marine mentality
Whether your business is suffering or your sanity, it’s time to improvise, adapt and overcome. The Marines are made for this. I want you to take on the mentality of a Marine. Choose to adapt to the circumstances and do your best by being present and focusing one day at a time.
Stick to your regular routine as much as possible. By creating structure and routine, it will help to shift your mindset from fear and worry to focus and execution. Get up at the regular time. Make sure you’re getting at least 30 minutes of movement each day.
Tackle your to-do list
Use this time wisely. See it as a gift to tackle that never ending to-do list you seemed to never have time for. Clean out your closets. Start or finish that online course. Make your health a priority including what you’re choosing to consume via your news feeds. Spend more time in nature and less on technology.
I want you to look back at this event and be proud of how you adapted and overcame the challenges and circumstances. This is your time to step up rather than shrink down. You CAN adapt and overcome any situation!
