How to Have Success, Peace, and Prosperity in the Time of Pandemic

Whatever is going on in the world at any point does not dictate the success, prosperity, or peace you experience in your life. 

That, my friend, is up to you and only you. 

Today I want to help you make a difference in your life and find all three things. With a few simple adjustments to what you’re doing and how you’re thinking, you might just realize that you can find as much success, peace, and prosperity as you want. As long as you’re willing to do what it takes to get there and believe that you can, you will.

  • ([2:24]) How having less control over others gives you more control over yourself. As much as we want to control people sometimesto do what you want or do what you think is rightwe can’t and that’s not a bad thing. Put yourself in their shoes…would you want others trying to control you? Absolutely not! You do have control right now… control of yourself and how you respond, act, or think, and that’s all that really matters.
  • ([3:45]) Why it’s not impossible to have peace during a global pandemic. If you were to be in a cabin in the forest with no work, news, or care for what’s going on right now, would you be at peace? I’m sure you’d have a lot more peace than you do right now, and it is an option. But whether that is the right option is for you to decide. Maybe peace for you is limiting your news consumption, having some quiet time when the kids are in bed, or going on a walk. There are so many things you can do to make your life more peaceful right now.
  • ([10:10]) You hold the key to your success. With your mindset, actions, words, and knowledge you can do anything if you want it enough. It’s only impossible if you think it’s impossible, and only when you start believing that you can do it will you achieve success. 
  • ([14:12]) What you should really be asking yourself in any circumstance. When something changes, we are reminded that we don’t have control and that what happens in the world is not up to us. So, we ask: Why me? Why this? Why now? What we really need to be asking is: What can this do for me? How can this change things for the better? What was happening before this that made this the “perfect” time for this change? No matter what is happening in your life, the way you respond mentally and physically can completely change how it affects you.
