Overwhelmed? Here’s How to Succeed in these Times

For a start babe, how are you feeling today?

I know that these past few months have been challenging. Business sales are declining, pay cuts at work, bank accounts are turning red and being indoors is getting the best of us. For some of us, thinking of how to succeed is the last thing on our minds. We’re more about how to survive.

There is SO MUCH going on and I bet we are all looking for ways to stay sane during and after this pandemic. 

But the truth is, bags still need to be secured and money has to be made- pandemic or not! So here are a few tips on how you can succeed in the new norm.

1. Stop feeling sorry for yourself

If you really want to succeed, you will find ways to change where you are right now. Self-pity won’t take you there. If your mood is not right, take a brief meditation break or dance to your favourite song. Shake off that bad energy because better days are here!

2. Create a gratitude journal

Get your notepad and list out a few things you’re grateful for today. Think about your family, friends, things that went well, the growth you’ve experienced and any other positive parts of your life no matter how big or small.

3. Never stop marketing yourself

If you’re a business owner, start treating every piece of communication you send out as another chance to market your product. Show your best pieces and update that Instagram account with your latest products or discounts. Most importantly, remind family and friends about your business.

4. Don’t be stagnant

We’ve been forced to conform to changes that we have little or no control over. If you’re thinking about how to succeed, this is the time for you to re-evaluate your business goals in relation to the current economy. Find ways to thrive girl! The world is evolving and so should you. Don’t just exist. Live. Explore. Challenge yourself.

Your why’s and how’s to embracing growth

Living in a world where we wake up each morning to new innovations and improvements on how things were, just a night before shows beyond every reasonable doubt that life is ever changing.

Phases fade out because even life grows. Therefore, it is a huge risk to remain stagnant in a world ruled by pace and ace.

Here are some factors that can aid your growth...

Change

It’s high time we realized that change isn’t just a theoretical phenomenon. Change isn’t a part of life, but change is life.

Change is life itself. It's either we live it or it leaves us behind. Click To Tweet

This means that we should constantly be on the move, in our journey of personal development. This requires the totality of our lives, being conscious of the fact that every move either made or not made reflects in the scale of our progress.

Build your capacity

How ready are we for the opportunities that we seek?

Most times we have great plans on how we want to make a huge positive impact in the lives of others. We have dreams of how we want to make a difference, how we want to change the world for the better.

All fine and beautiful! But how often do we resolve to change ourselves, become better with our skills, our talents and our endowments in general?

It’s important to note that true success and lasting positive impact in the lives of others begin within us as individuals. For we cannot give out more than the content of our worth. Therefore, in order not to be left behind by life, we must by all means, consciously and consistently…

  • Improve our skills
  • Fuel and refuel our knowledge tank
  • Learn something new each day

Tell your story

There is the foundational piece of every success story. It is a never-ending phase of moving from where we are, to where we want to be. By owning your story, you appreciate how far you’ve come.

It may be a period of rejections, so many imperfections. Perhaps, a period of falling and rising, a period of self-discovery or even a period of just taking one step at a time, but in all, it is never a period of stagnancy.

Beyond all the ups and downs, one must keep at a certain pace, even if it means moving inch by inch.

“We have an innate desire to endlessly learn, grow and develop. We want to become more than what we already are. Once we yield to this inclination for continuous and never-ending improvement; we lead a life of endless accomplishments and satisfaction. – Chuck Gallozzi

Be Clear and Specific

In the words of Jack Canfield, an all-time success guru…

” Whatever your goal, decide where you want to improve and what steps you’ll need to take to achieve that improvement. To keep yourself focused on constant and never-ending improvement, ask yourself every day, “

  • How can I improve today?
  • What can I do better than before?
  • Where can I learn a new skill or develop a new competency?

If you do, you’ll embark on a lifelong journey of improvement that will ensure your success.”

Take one step at a time

You do not have to suddenly mature into a particular phase of life. That’s why it is called ‘GROWTH’. It’s a process! It involves stages. You don’t have to rush in and out.

Plant yourself in a healthy and environment void of chokiness.

Water yourself, open yourself to the sunshine, breath and enjoy the process because this will lead you to the YOU of your desires.
Remember! Grow into your next level, do not hop into it and watch ‘you glow before your own eyes’!
