How to Pivot to a Powerful Mindset- Part 2 of a 5 Part Series “Getting Back on Track”
Are you feeling emotionally exhausted right now? I’m guessing that we all are. This global pandemic is something none of us has ever experienced before. It has brought many intense and draining emotions such as fear, anger, worry, anxiety and frustration. There is no wrong way to feel. However, if these tougher emotions are left uncontrolled they could begin to filter the way we look at our lives even after the lockdown is lifted.
What do I mean by this?
Here’s what I mean. Imagine that you have two pairs of sunglasses. One is pink with pink lenses and one other is blue with blue lenses. If you put the pink ones on, what color is the world? Right! It’s pink. If you put the blue ones on, what color is the world? Right again! It’s blue. It’s the same with your emotions. You “see” the world through the emotions you live in and make decisions about your life from that headspace.
So, unless we make a conscious decision to change the negative emotional patterns we may have been living in while sheltering in place, we will continue to see the world through that filter even after we step back into our lives. This may lead us to feeling victimized, powerless and unable to create new possibilities for ourselves as we navigate this new reality.
But, that’s not going to be you! I’m guessing that you are a someone who wants to evolve, grow and move forward in your life, right? Right!!
Come with me now and I’ll show you “How to Pivot to a Powerful Mindset” in 3 simple steps:
Respond to where you are in your life rather than react to it. Responding gives YOU the control whereas reacting gives your power away to what is happening outside of you. Create the best course of action from where you are right now and choose who you want to be while you are taking that action. Be compassionate with yourself but steer clear of a “poor me” attitude. Every morning, set your intention to stay in a creative mindset and focus on the opportunities and possibilities in your life.
Take 100% responsibility for your life and OWN YOUR CHOICES. Ownership of your life is at the root of positive transformation. Sitting back and complaining or blaming others renders you powerless. Make the deliberate shift from victim of your life to creator of your life by taking 100% responsibility for your life. Decide on what is best for YOU and then take the necessary steps to get you there. No more waiting and seeing how life plays out or what others do before you get up and get going in your own life.
Come alive and see this situation as the opportunity for you to evolve beyond what you would have ever been without it. See this not as something that happened to you but something that happened for you. See that it has shaped you into a better, stronger and more creative version of yourself. Integrate what you have learned through this struggle and use it to for your own good and for the good of those around you.
