There are so many thoughts that run through our minds of confidence in reference to how the status of the economy looks like, whether our businesses will thrive, if there will be a sudden recession, people losing their jobs, mental health issues and isolation. So many thoughts come up to mind.
However, do you know that what you think about is the results that will show forth? For me, I’ve had to adapt to different ways of thinking from discipling my mental ability to think positively, by focusing on what I do have which is the gift of life, a roof over my head, the ability to interact with family and friends and inner peace. During this season, the majority of people have many thoughts of how they will survive and what isn’t going right in their lives, which cause them to be distracted and underproductive.
Remember this: what you focus on, you magnify in your mind and in reality.
I want to give you SEVEN tips on how to be confident during Covid-19:
Tip number one: Always be thankful – no matter what you do not have, there is someone that wants your life. The little you have is a big blessing in the eyes of someone else. Contentment goes a very long way when you start in your humble beginnings.
Tip number two: Write down what you are good at – this is a great way to start bringing out your creativity skills and doing something different. For example, if you like baking and want to try out different desserts and see how many you can make; who knows, this could be a side business for you.
Tip number three: Invest in online education and e-learning. There is a lot that can be done in this season, particularly for those that are working from home or have a business. You can turn these online education sessions into live video calls including Zoom or Teams Microsoft to for further development inviting other people to join.
Tip number four: Don’t think about what you’ve lost – it isn’t always easy, especially when you’ve worked extremely hard to be where you are. For every loss, there is always a greater gain. Be willing to accept it and move on gracefully.
Tip number five: Get to know others virtually and reach out to family and friends – it is important to not only reach out to those you know but make friends with people you don’t know online. Social media is a great platform to do this. Who knows, that person could be an advantage to you in future and vice versa.
Tip number six: Renew your mindset – once Covid-19 is over, don’t think in your old ways. Embrace the changes that come your way and be willing to adapt to new methods and regulations. Be open-minded to what is coming your way and continue to keep that positive attitude at all times.
Tip number seven: Invest in yourself – this is extremely important. Self-care has to be one of the greatest priorities in anyone’s life. When you are good, everything else around you is good. Don’t neglect yourself because of where you are. Take care of your spiritual, mental and emotional space and see how life will get better for you. Be an influential being.
Let these seven tips help you cope during this season and know together we WILL beat Covid-19!
