2 years ago the thought of a worldwide quarantine would have seemed laughable.
No travel, dining out, or social interaction…it’s an interesting thought, but that will NEVER happen. There’s just no way.
And then it did.
And maybe you responded well. You took advantage of the free time. You took on home projects you’ve been talking about doing forever. Maybe you actually started to read more books, learned to cook, or actually called your relatives.
Or maybe you struggled. Isolation got the best of you. You fell off the wagon. Working from home became the bulk of your day. Maybe your health and fitness took a hit.
The question is…what are you going to do about it?
You have a tremendous opportunity in front of you. The world is finally opening back up and you have a chance to become the person you want to be.
“If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.” -Seth Godin
This is an opportunity, because the world is different than the one that was locked up 2 years ago. Whether you were successful or struggling before COVID hit the globe doesn’t really matter. A lot of successful people fell off their high horse. A lot of new companies have grown and thrived. There are new opportunities emerging everyday. They might not look like the plans you had before this began. Your New Year’s resolutions or goals from January may have to be tossed out the window.
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” -Lao Tzu
This may be the single best chance to reinvent yourself that shows up in your lifetime. It’s time to start doing all the things you have been dreaming about doing.
Now you have the chance to step into the life you’ve always wanted. If any part of you values your health and wants to feel energy and confidence then a weekly training regimen and successful strategy for eating, sleeping, and managing stress are essential.
You might have some ideas of what to do. Maybe you have tried diets in the past or dropped into exercise classes that you enjoyed or had a routine that you stuck with for a few months. The point is if you are not doing it right now then it’s time to look in the mirror.
Address what you see and decide if you’re happy with what you see?
Compassion and self-love is important. So is self-care and wanting better for yourself. It’s okay to not be happy where you are at. You have an opportunity in front of you to change. To grow. To become a version of yourself that you love and is the best person to provide for your family, help your friends, and be a leader in your career.
You know what you should do. Now put the building blocks of success in place. Commit to the outcomes you want. Create an environment that facilitates you achieving your goals.
“On one level, wisdom is nothing more profound than an ability to follow one’s own advice.” – Sam Harris
Will it be easy? Nope. The struggle is guaranteed, but the success is not. But if you are willing to keep showing up. To put in the work. To go through the motions even when you don’t want to. Then you might not even recognize the person you become by the end of this extraordinary year.
“Success isn’t owned. It’s leased, and rent is due every day.” – J. J. Watt
