Think back to January of 2020. What were your New Year’s Resolutions? What were your professional goals? What big grand thing did you want to do or place you wanted to go later that year? Remember your 5 year goals? 10 year goals?
In January of 2023 I realized that many of the goals I had for my life were put to the side due to Covid. I found myself stuck in a loop – just get through Covid in one piece. Three years later and I was still in survival mode. Does this resonate with you? Are you just now coming out of the Learned Helplessness and brain fog that was created due to a pandemic? Well, Sister, you are not alone!
By just pushing through, putting my head in the sand (what I call “weenie mode”), and drowning in disappointment (of myself and others), I kept myself in a negative loop. I wasn’t taking care of myself. I was the gerbil on a wheel. I took an assessment of my life, and it wasn’t pretty. It was time to take my life back. I was going to have to step out of “weenie zone,” be brave and get help. With the support of my Tribe I have spent the last seven months taking my life and businesses back.
But, what about you? What part of you did you lose (or find) due to Covid? I’m pretty dramatic and yours doesn’t have to be! Maybe your story is more subtle – but still important. Maybe you held onto something you should’ve let go of because there was so much fear and loss just due to the pandemic. Maybe you let go of your BHAG and are stuck thinking small. Maybe you put something on hold…
Q3 is assessment time. Whatever is lost CAN be found. Awareness is always the first step. I encourage you to think back to January of 2020. Is your life better today? Is your business better today? Are you taking better care of you? Do you feel more confident and powerful? That grand thing you wanted…do you have it? All you have to do is to be brave and vulnerable to ask! YOU GOT THIS!
