Time to Refocus:
Well here we are... already halfway through 2020. This year has been a rollercoaster of emotions for us all. Living life through a Pandemic can make our seemingly mundane lives all of a sudden feel like someone hit us with a ton of bricks. Most people live there lives through routine instead of vision. They numbingly do the everyday tasks being sure that nothing is out of order in their existence. Most live their lives feeling "comfortable", never wanting to distrupt that feeling of content. The minute we feel the slightest bit of discomfort, here come the feelings of stress and anxiousness. Why is this? Why are we afraid to step out of our comfort zones? Well because it can be scary, giving you that uneasy feeling that no one wants that... right?! But guess what, if you live life in your daily comfort zone you're not growing as a person. Leaving you "stuck" in a mindset, never expanding towards growth with a deeper sense of accomplishment.
If this year has felt particularly hard on you, and you feel "stuck" because of whats going on around you then you are absolutely in the wrong mindset. If you have not continued working on the goals that you may have talked about at the beginning of this year, then you will likely be in the same spot this time next year. Mindset is everything and it's up to you to put in the work and FOCUS on progression on a daily basis.
So where are you in your life today? Are you stuck in that part of society who is living life to complain, blame, feel angered and never progressing within your own existence? Or will you be that part of society who is working on change, progress, and striving towards your own goals? Remember the more you focus on others... the less focus you are giving towards a better you.
Take a minute to think about where you are in your own life. Have you allowed the madness of your surroundings stop your progress? If so then it's time to focus on clearing the confusion that our current reality has brought about today.
We all should be using this time to really get to know ourselves and the people around us. Is there something or someone bringing you down? Are you unhappy with your present situation? Do you see that you're not on the path of growth, but on a path of destruction? If this is the case, it's time to just pause.... Take a deep breath... and realign your thinking starting today! Life is a continued journey and it's up to you as to where that journey will actually lead you in the end.
