When Your Circumstances Change, What Do You Do?
We’ve all been knocked down at some point. No matter how strong or resilient you are, 2020 changed everything for me and everyone else around me.
Things around us are constantly changing. “Pivot” is just a change in direction. You’re not on a one-way street forever with no roadblocks!
You’ll need to pivot at some point, both in business & in life I know I have.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve been pivoting too!
That’s why I launched my podcast about going from stuck to unstoppable 10 months ago to help you bounce back better.
I am excited to announce that next week is my 100th podcast launch party “The power to pivot”. The circumstances around you will change.
I want to inspire you to adapt because sometimes when you look for it there can be a silver lining in a pivot. I know there was for me even though it didn’t feel that way at the time!
A pivot starts with the decision to say yes, I’m changing direction.
Change can be the best thing to happen for you. I know for me the bumpy road of my business & my life was what inspired the podcast! What if you could let go of your past and create the future you’ve always dreamed of?
‘Whether you think you can or think you can’t either way you’re right!’ — Henry Ford
Change can be scary and it certainly was for me but NOW is the time to take that step and pivot. Expect to be scared when pivoting. But GO FOR IT. Just start by saying yes, I’m doing this, and then start moving in that direction.
How do you pivot? Here are some tips!
Tip # 1: Have the Mindset of a Winner!
Pivots are part of business and life. And we’ve all been tested! Pivots are not failures. If you’re pivoting, you are doing it right. Look at Netflix, Airbnb, Google, Amazon, etc. They all pivoted to massive success! look at challenges as opportunities to grow & to improve your situation!
Tip #2: Look Inward
Why are you pivoting? Is it because what you are doing doesn’t work (anymore) I know for me seeing people in person became impossible so I switched to 100% online? Or is it because everything around you has changed? (as in Corona Virus…). Your motivation is critical so that you don’t fool yourself and stay the course.
Tip #3: Practice Self-care
OK, I get it. It’s been an incredibly tough year and 1/2. 2020 has taken a toll on our mental and physical health.
Drinking and overeating to cope doesn’t help. It feels like self-care, but it’s actually not.
A healthy mind can’t exist in an unhealthy body. Take better care of your body and your mind will follow.
A new quarter is here. It’s the perfect time to let go of negative coping mechanisms and start replacing them with healthy self-care practices that will help you instead of hurt you.
Start by getting up and moving your body daily, even if it only means going for a five-minute walk. Drinking more water, and eat a veggie or two each day. Gradually scale back the use of alcohol, white carbs, and sugar if you know you’re doing it to cope. Ask for help if you need it.
I help my clients build little changes like exercise, eating healthier, and drinking more water to create sustainable lifestyle change and they’re getting amazing results. Remember a healthy mind can’t exist in an unhealthy body. Take better care of your body and your mind will follow.
Tip #4: Stumbling blocks don’t have to be roadblocks if you reframe them
Challenges can help you discover what you’re really capable of, they cause you to look inward and find the strength to keep going. Instead of viewing a challenge as a roadblock, you must look at it as a doorway to something better. Today you may not feel hopeful, try to remember that tomorrow will bring a new beginning and a chance to move forward with your life. The playing field has been leveled everyone has experienced difficult times, it’s time to write a new chapter in your life.
