Anything can and will change in an instant. Knowing that grants you immense power over your destiny – especially if it’s self-inflicted with you in control.
Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste
A few years ago, the world changed when we were introduced to CorinaVirus. It was as if we were racing down the Interstate at 85 miles-per-hour, slammed on our breaks, and directed off the nearest exit on an undefined detour. It all seemed to happen in an instant.
The pandemic caused real pain and loss for some. Fear and stress for others. Still, as surreal as it was, it wasn’t long before most people began to notice the craziness of our previous lives replaced with a ‘new normal’ – one that felt more like a ‘new nothing.’
Much to our surprise, life slowed to a crawl, schedules changed, and we found contentment by not chasing every shiny object that life presented. The pandemic pause caused people to reevaluate life from the inside out. While it happens all the time, this time, we noticed it.
How often have you found yourself in an impossible situation that ended with one action?
You paid off debt, quit a job, and said goodbye to a bad relationship?
How often have you decided to try something new, and the past instantly disappeared?
Did you decide to move into a new home, start your own business, or return to school?
How often have the worst pains and biggest joys been the catalyst for an exciting new beginning?
A death, wedding, or the birth of a new child?
While some situations in life are unpredictable, the lessons learned and wisdom gleamed remind us that anything can and will change instantly. Knowing that grants you immense power over your destiny – especially if it’s self-inflicted and you are in control.
