  • Finding courage and grace
  • Practicing gratitude

Find Courage and Grace

We maybe couldn’t control or stop so many things that happened this year, but we can choose the mindset and energy that we put into overcoming those challenges. When dealing with a challenging situation, people either fight it out, freeze, or most commonly want to run and hide. But the truth is, life is hard, and we need the courage to fight and go through it. Millennials and newer generations have been so protected and cuddled mostly by their parents that those generations are more prone to depression and less capable of accepting the failure in any form. Yet, failure is a pillar of success because we learn from it and grow later. We need to embrace the loss and consequences and take accountability for our actions. It is in human nature to blame everyone but us. Taking responsibility for our actions liberates us because we accepted the situation, and now we can choose to change it. There will always be someone better, smarter, quicker, but that does not lessen your achievement. Your real competition is with your inner you, and not with the rest of the world.

Practice Gratitude

Social media and the so-called “selfie” culture contributed to the rise of a new trend in society where everybody is a narcissist and obsessed with comparison to the others. We also feel like we are in some race and always late, so we multitask. But, when we multitask, we lower our IQ in those moments and decrease our productivity. We give attention to too many unimportant things that we forget to be present in our real-life sometimes. We should focus more on things that make us feel grateful. We all have good people and good things happening in our lives, but we still choose to focus all our energy on the wrong things. For instance, many people should be grateful for being able to work from home during the pandemic. Also, people forget that being able to get up from the bed in the morning is a reason enough to start your day with gratitude. Once when we shift our energy on the real things that we can be grateful for, we automatically shift our mindset to be more optimistic as well.
