We spend most of our lives looking outward, looking for the next step, the next big thing.
We want to be the trendsetter,
to be ahead of the curve,
and constantly put all our energy outwards.
This pandemic opens up an opportunity that has never presented itself before, the opportunity for you to completely reinvent yourself;
to PAUSE and look inwards,
without the noise of normal life.
The opportunity to become more self-aware, to become the person you want to be, your best self.
You don’t have the pressures of social obligations, of peoples preconceived notions of who you are and what you’re capable of. You don’t have to keep up the façade.
Look at the people you surround yourself with:
Do they bring out the best in you?
Do they support you?
Do they have your back?
Or are they holding you back…?
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
Let that sink in.
Do a massive cull, be cut throat, if you need to completely start over then here is your opportunity.
This is not an easy feat by any means, but if you are willing to go all in and really analyse your life and career, here are questions to get you started (answer these questions truthfully):
Are you happy in your career?
Would you be happier doing something else for less money?
Or do you like the lifestyle your job brings?
Do you have self-destructive or limiting habits, that are holding you back?
How will you overcome them?
Where do you want to be in 10 years?
What is stopping you from living that life now?
Why do you want to be there?
Is it for yourself and your happiness?
Or are you trying to prove something to someone, are you living for someone else?
What steps do you need to take in order to get to your goal?
What steps can you take today to ensure self-closer towards that goal?
You have the opportunity to reinvent yourself, to live the life you want to live.
Will you seize it or will you just let it slip…
