Let's face it, we are all traversing one of the hardest times in the history of human kind. This COVID-19 pandemic has been a trying time for a lot of us. Some of us have lost family members, some of us have fallen sick ourselves, and others of us have lost jobs and the ability to support ourselves and our families. But as long as we have breath and health, there is an opportunity to change the course of things and switch the narrative.
In the famous poem "Invictus", William Ernest Henley said: "It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll, I am the MASTER of my fate, I am the CAPTAIN of my soul." We have more control than we think. Ok let me rephrase this, we may not have much control over what happens to us, but we definitely have power and control over how we proceed from those downfalls, failures and negative circumstances.
The answer is VISION
What is your vision? What do you permit yourself to focus on, despite your circumstances?
Now that is the important thing to think about. Vision is absolutely required to move forward in hard situations. Now let's not confuse dreams for vision. Dreams can actually be a distraction. Dreams can be a setback actually. Dreams don't allow you to move forward, because they are just that "dreams with no plan". You can dream when you sleep, but while awake, focusing on vision (a concrete plan that may be based on your dreams) will help you attain your goals no matter how challenging the circumstances.
Now time to go chase your dreams with a twist! Work on those dreams now! Chase that vision! Create a concrete plan with attainable goals, deadlines and dates. You will notice how you grow through your challenging circumstances.
