When we’re faced with difficult circumstances and uncertainty, it evokes the feelings of fear.
We tend to fall into a survival mode, which is a natural protective mechanism in our brain that ensures our longevity.
Fear can be good when we use it to our advantage to springboard into something new and beyond our comfort level.
But fear can also paralyze our mind and therefore stop us from finding solutions to our problems.
Much of the fear we experience stems from insecurities about our own well-being.
Our safety is ranked as the second most important need after satisfying our basic physiological necessities in the Maslov’s hierarchy of human needs. It’s not surprising then that any situation that threatens those basic needs will invoke severe alarm.
As Einstein said, the solutions to our problems cannot be found at the level of thinking that created them.
In other words, if we’re in fear of what we perceive as is then we cannot find a way out of the situation that we’re in.
So I’d like to encourage you to step out of fear and detach yourself from general consciousness which is under assault of mass anxiety and concern.
I’m writing this article amidst the outbreak of Coronavirus outbreak which has paralyzed families, societies, and nations around the globe.
As I write these words, many of you – the business owners and entrepreneurs – are worried about the future of your business and whether you can survive under the new circumstances of social distancing practices.
I’d like to open you to a new way of looking at yourself and your business.
One of the biggest attributes of an entrepreneurial mind is its MALLEABILITY – its adaptability to change.
Many people perceive the Darwinism theory as survival of the strongest and the fittest. But the key to the Darwinian evolution is survival of those that are most adaptable to change.
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives.
It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
You don’t have to be the strongest, largest or most powerful to continue to thrive but…
You have to be able to adapt to the circumstances that you’re thrown in and create new opportunities to thrive.
As we face the changing dynamic of our society and how business is conducted, we are presented with an opportunity to respond to that force by creating new ways of connecting and offering new solutions that are much needed at this critical time.
Whether your business will thrive or collapse will depend on your ability to adapt to the change which we’re all facing right now.
So my invitation to you today is to INNOVATE.
Consider modifying your business so that it can address the emerging needs within our society.
Ask yourself: “What can I do differently? What out of the box ideas can I implement?”
Perhaps you can transfer your services from an in-person to online interaction.
Maybe you can leverage digital technologies to continue to generate and interact with your prospects.
Most importantly, I invite you to become calm and step out of the fear, which is magnified in our mass consciousness.
Reassess where you are and allow your creative mind to take over.
At this difficult time, meditation and visualization are the keys to your success.
Step into hope and trust that you will be taken care of.
Believe that the entire Universe is conspiring on your behalf to make you successful.
Some people call it optimism, others call it Faith or Grace.
However you see it or perceive it, now is the time to step into your Higher Mind – your higher frequency consciousness – and allow it to guide you forward.
Let your Higher Wisdom provide you with ideas.
Open yourself to that deep intuitive voice, which some of you call a gut feeling, Intuition or Soul, so it can guide you to the next step in your journey.
Let your Higher Self help you find the solutions that will keep you thriving instead of surviving.
We are not declining. We are simply evolving.
This is not the end of times as they were.
This is the beginning of a new era, new mindset, new opportunities, and new innovation.
I wish you much success. There’s so much to be gained by you. Just open the door to the NEW YOU!
May you prosper like never before.
