We've been talking over the last few weeks about the Coronavirus pandemic (and the mindset around it). It’s only going to get worse before it gets better and it’s been a horrible thing (and we’re all feeling it)!
BUT we can break through that (and I tell you how in my last 4 episodes!)
There's a way to get through all of this and do it with a smile- feeling joyful + happy!
We can do it with positivity. Positivity isn't about denying that negative things are happening in the world. It's about putting a smile on your face, so you can solve them easier.
Don’t deny that feeling of negativity (that won’t fix it!)
With that, welcome to The Path To Mindset Mastery! My name is Brad Bizjack! I’m a Mindset Strategist and Coach, inspirational speaker, and creator of Appreciation Academy and I help online business owner’s breakthrough all the negative self-talk holding you back from your dreams so you can finally see the success you deserve! This is the weekly spot to break through everything that’s holding you back from the life you really want!
First, thank you for being here! My hope is that this little series provides you with the tools and strategies you need, not just to make it through a global pandemic, but also to sort through any chaotic time in your life in the future.
You can choose to be emotionally centered.
You can choose to get back your own mind because right now your spirit is likely being taken from you. The world is becoming a place of reactivity and I'm here to tell you that if you gain control of your mind, if you bring that back, this can be one of the proudest moments of growth that you've ever had!
We ALL need a mindset shift and a different perspective about the last couple of weeks.
I've taught you what fear is.
How to switch your focus.
How to remember who you truly are.
How to deal with overwhelm.
How to switch your energy.
How to come back to a place of productivity (instead of reactivity).
How to navigate uncertainty.
The 5 ways to define certainty
How to lead during this time without judgement (and be a role model).
How to be the beacon of light when the world is panicking.
How to be the optimist when there's pessimism going on.
How to be a giver during this time.
How to find opportunity during a time of chaos.
AND… in this episode, I want to give you perspective and realize in the grand scheme of things, this is about having some overall big picture mindsets that IT’S GOING TO BE OKAY!
Every part of life has cycles and trends. It always has been that way (and it always will be that way). In the last 12 years, it's been really easy to feel good. It's been really easy to feel positive because it's been a bull market. It's been the easiest time to become an entrepreneur. This is the first major crisis our world has faced in 12 years and we're not used to it. So, we need to see that this too shall pass.
If you take a look at any major crisis in the past (a war, 9/11, 2008 financial crisis), any sort of pandemic we've had in the past and there have been plenty of them. It has always passed! It has always passed and it always will in the future. This will not be the last time this happens.
Something scary will happen again, but my promise to you is just to have some big picture perspective and do adopt the mindset that this too shall pass. My question for you:
When you look back at this 5…10…15 years from now, will you be proud of how you handled it?
Are you going to be proud of the person that you were during this? You can look at this from the perspective of ‘the world is ending’ or you can see it as ‘an opportunity to rec-enter yourself in the world’. If you follow the news, you're not going to see the beauty of what’s going on because right now I have seen more beauty in this world than I have in a really long time.
Haven't you noticed that the world is coming together more than ever before?!
It's beautiful! It's amazing! People are singing to each other on balconies. They're finding solutions and testing things. Different companies are suspending payments to make life easier for other people. People have been coming together and helping each other!! There are amazing things going on in the world right now that we need to take notice of because if we just look for what's missing or what's wrong, we are sure to find it! But if we look for what's beautiful, what's already there, what's amazing about this, you can find that too!
The world is coming together now more than ever before and it's so beautiful! My challenge to you: Find the beauty amongst the chaos!
Remember to be grateful!
Ask yourself (now): What can I actually be grateful for right now?!
How can I find beauty in this scary time?
What good can I notice in the world right now?
What can I laugh about?
What can I joke about?
Who can I be there for?
It's impossible to feel fear and panic when you're feeling grateful.
Switch your mindset from what's happening ‘to’ me, to what's happening ‘for’ me!
How can you serve the world instead of wondering why the world isn’t serving you?!
It is a beautiful time to live, my friend! It's a beautiful time to grow! It's a beautiful time to recenter yourself and to appreciate the things that you have in your life.
Doesn't this situation make you want to hold the people that you love a little bit tighter than the situation?
Doesn’t it make you more creative? As a mom, business owner, wife?!
Doesn't this situation make you reflect on what's actually important to you?
Doesn't this situation challenge you to grow and give more?
Let’s be grateful instead of resentful and be the leader everyone needs. Capitalize on this opportunity!
It's going to be okay! This too shall pass, so be the beacon of light for those that are only seeing darkness. Be a part of the solution, don’t feed into the drama and negativity.
My challenge to you: End your suffering today by being grateful & finding peace. Let go of judgment and use compassion.
This situation has taught me a lot and I'm so grateful for that (and I hope you’re grateful, too)!
If this series has been helpful to you during this time, SHARE IT! Help people reframe their mindset and be a leader when the world needs it the most! If we can spread this message to as many people as possible, it will help them change their life and regain control of their mind.
