Here I am sharing with you few thoughts about what I learned in the mist of adversity…
Tip #1 – Keep a smile on your face!
Spreading out bad vibes and low energy is never a good idea. Keeping a smile on your face in all circumstance may be seen as a naive, childish or even irresponsible behaviour… Actually in many occasions, it proved to be a great tool to walk through any kind of challenge. Maybe because it’s the best way to send assurance and self-confidence to the mind; and also, a way to make sure we keep a positive and fruitful connection with others, whenever difficult moments come to attack us.
Tip #2 – There is no crisis, life is a crisis…
When the attack starts, always make sure to put it into a global context. In the VUCA world, we now have integrated the idea that nothing really last in stability and certainty. Life is and will always be a succession of “crisis”, and this is the essence of it.
To quote the beautiful and unique Marilyn Monroe:
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
So is speaking life to us.
Tip #3 – Ask yourself how much this issue will really weigh in 50 years from now?
Finally, a little bit of relativity can help. What if you transpose the problems you are carrying in 50 years from now? Which one of them will still be remembered, and still impacting you (and the planet) in 2070?
In this new and fresh perspective of your present, you should get some wise clues in hands, and get prepared for Life on Mars!
All the best for 2020 and the Year of the Rat!
