Transformative Thursdays: Courage in the Face of Uncertainty

5B88F24C-07B7-4AAB-A225-F0429801A2FDClearly we are living in uncertain times. There’s a cloud of fear, worry and anxiety for some. For others, there’s a cloud of denial and unbotheredness.  This is the time we all need courage to continue moving forward.  Fear can easily settle in and paralyze you. Its job is to grip your thoughts and emotions and keep you in an unproductive cycle of no movement.  I’m not encouraging you to throw caution and wisdom out of the window but to keep doing what you know to do.

Take one step at a time towards your goals.  It may take a little longer to get there or even tweaking a few things along the way.  But if you keep moving, you will be farther along than most others when the clouds roll back.  Prepare yourself now for what’s on the other side of this storm. Be ready to step into your dream.

*Be careful of who you spend your time with.

*Encourage yourself with uplifting thoughts, podcasts, etc.

*Don’t spend too much time focusing on what’s going on now.

*Write your vision clearly.

*Set clearly defined goals with deadlines.

*Use the extra time you have to think about where you want to go and map out a plan.

*Get an accountability partner and check in regularly.

*Do one thing each day that gets you closer to your goals.
