Cultivate Opportunity during COVID-19

COVID-19. I don’t know a single person who isn’t entirely exhausted, depleted and absolutely divisive over the virus that’s ravaging the planet. Any comprehensive global event will divide people in terms of opinion, yet this particular event has set opinions apart on a spectrum that outweighs anything seen previously.

Whether we’re against the vaccine, or anti-lockdown, or pro-vaccine, there’s an absolute surge of accurate and incorrect information that’s leaving the majority of the global population in absolute confusion.

Do you subscribe to this mass panic? Are you one to complain, act in frustration…or do you view events in a balanced light?

Unfortunately, no matter how much we fight against the current state of events, the truth remains that we’re not able to get rid of COVID-19 that easily. The virus spreads quickly and even with mass vaccinations, we’re unable to make any real headway with getting this under control.

Here’s where we enter the fork in the road with our decision making. Do we let this defeat us...or do we rise above and make events swing in our favour? Wherever there’s fear and chaos, there’s also opportunity. While some panic, other remain calm and make concrete, wise decisions.

“You have power over your mind — not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength.” – Marcus Aurelius

Discipline is the cornerstone of your personal success in the face of immediate chaos. When everyone panics, will you follow…or will you dictate events to suit your own pace? If we have a plan, that keeps us grounded and we can stick to routine and completing our necessary tasks to move the needle forward one degree at a time. Stay sharp and remain laser focused on your vision, without a goal to work towards, it’s easy to fall into fear and panic.

Remaining accountable to our actions and creating time for self-development and beneficial leisure also play a massive role in retaining our clarity during a time of mass confusion. Keep learning and in your leisure time, relax if necessary, or perform activities that boost your mind, health, or spirit.

“We don't rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.” – David Goggins

It’s easy to fall back into old habits, that are self-destructive and not beneficial. The lack of options during COVID-19 certainly influences us to fall back into the trap of comfort and familiarity. If you’re serious about developing a vision for yourself, you must avoid this at all costs. Old habits lead to old patterns of behaviour which bring about a past version of ourselves. After all, we’re only as good as our habits dictate us to be, they reflect our subconscious state.

Stay strong and remember that iron sharpens iron. Practice discipline and challenge yourself daily in your passion, your purpose or your vision. There are no excuses apart from what you tell yourself in private, learn to quieten the mind and keep busy.

COVID-19 won’t defeat you, rather view it as an opportunity for growth and development. While negatives still exist, your perspective defines your reality.

How will you make use of this global pandemic to your advantage? Will you look back on it as wasted time or a period of growth? You decide.
