As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, I don’t know if we’re ever going to be back to exactly the way it was. This has catalysed a massive technological step-up for many businesses.
The new way may not be holding onto the past. Any time you compare your current reality to a fantasy of how it should be, how you wish it would be, how it used to be, how you would fantasize you’d like it to be, you’re not going to appreciate your current reality.
If you hold onto the fantasy of the past it’s depressive because you keep comparing what it is now to what you wish it would be. And you’re not then present now with what is.
The wise thing to do right now is to get as objective as you can and now work from there. And as those facts change, keep working from there and ask yourself, how specifically can I use this situation right now to my greatest advantage?
In this video Dr John Demartini explains that there are just as many opportunities during Covid-19 as ever, take the time to ask in order to see them.
Stress is the inability to adapt to a changing environment. This leads to distresses. We have the most inability to adapt when we’re rigid with infatuations about how it should be and you have resentments about how it is.
So the more we resent something, the more we fear the gain of it and the more we infatuate with something alternative then the more we feel the loss of it.
Whenever we’re in fear like that, we go into our amygdala which skews things and further exaggerates the fantasy and the nightmare that we’re in. We’re then no longer rational and we can’t fully see the opportunities. We don’t see visions of possibilities and we don’t come up with strategic plans on how to take the current reality and use it to greatest demands.
When you hold onto rigid views, you’re just adding to your own distress.
It has nothing to do with what’s going on in your outer world. It’s your attachment to the fantasies of how you want it to be and your detachment from current realities of how it is that causes a problem. That’s what blocks you from coming up with creative solutions.
The solutions to the so-called problem is always there, because there’s never crisis without an equal blessing.
If you lose sight of your mission of service and you get focused on your narcissistic needs over service, then all you’re doing is compounding your problem.
At the other extreme, if you sacrifice you for them, again you’ll initiate another amygdala response, which perpetuates the problem.
The only thing that’s sustainable is some sort of fair exchange. So your objective is to go and figure out what are the needs today.
There are many companies that are booming right now. They are serving the new needs to the people.
I would encourage you to stop and look at what are the current new needs of the people you want to serve. If you meet those needs, and you do it more effectively and efficiently than anybody else, you end up with the business.
Right now, you’re being forced to become more effective and efficient at meeting people’s needs. It forcing you to step up, keep current with what’s going on and not stagnate in the assumption that what was working is going to continue working.
We are designed to suffer when we’re pursuing that which is unobtainable and trying to avoid that which is unavoidable. This helps us to wake us up and set real objectives and get grounded in start from reality.
If you don’t know where you are, you don’t know where you want to go and you don’t have a strategy, you’re likely to be frustrated. So look at where you are right now. Get clear about what the mission is.
If you don’t know what your mission is, it’s time to get clear about it. That’s one of the reasons I teach the Breakthrough Experience which helps people become clear about their mission and to help them to see things ‘on the way’ instead of seeing things ‘in the way’.
There are just as many opportunities now as ever but you have to take the time to ask, “how is what’s happening right now, helping me get what I want” in order to see them.
