I totally understand the desire to bury your head in the sand during this whole ordeal.
But seriously - not a good move.
You know as well as I do that it's not going to help you in the long run to ignore whatever sh*t-storm is happening in your life. Alas, better to face it.
It gets worse in reality (physically & fiscally) as in no solutions = things keep getting further and further off track.
Many business owners and employees had their cash flow slow to a trickle...or completely dry up. And bills are stacking up. Those that had the foresight to save and are fortunate enough to have adequate savings are dipping into it to cover expenses.
Yet others are doing okay financially. Normal to better for some. Their paychecks are still coming while working at home or being furloughed.
Some businesses are even booming right now because they meet very specific needs and the conditions...
People are multi-dimensional. YOU are multi-dimensional. "Multi-passionate" you could say.
When you're seeking to make a change, make a decision, or "fix" something in your life, improve something, add, delete, minimize or maximize something in your life...do you look at it as if it's 2-dimensional? Like it's an isolated incident or area of your life?
There's no such thing as a 2-D decision.

And I don't mean to be flippant about it. But I do this over and over...this starting over thing. Although this time I'm not really starting over.
How many times have I taken a step back so I could take several steps forward AND be happier?
In my 20's I did it with my career. I took a traveling...
Things have changed. Like, in the course of the last 2 weeks...our lives are dramatically changed. Some are temporary changes while others will be lasting.
As I talk to friends, family, neighbors, and clients one thing is for sure...people are feeling a bit stressed. They are stressed because they are cooped up at home. Stressed because the world is in crisis and thousands of people are dying. Stressed due to the economy. And stressed because of what many see as a high level of uncertainty...
It's more important than ever to find our resourcefulness, focus on where we're going (not where we are or where we've been) and remain positive.
I, like many of you, want to contribute, to do my part.
I am a coach...therefore I shall coach.
I am offering a free group coaching call to help you engage your most valuable tool - your mindset.
The psychology of success tells us it's 80% mindset-related, 20% strategy-related.
EIGHTY. PERCENT. MINDSET!!
And successful people know this. This isn't new information. You've heard this before.
Strategy is important, too. You want the right strategy at the right time. Absolutely.
But mindset...that's where the magic has always been. Without the right mindset, strategy is useless. Good news! We know what to focus on. And we have 100% control of it - if we choose to exercise that...
So many questions in people's minds right now...
What should I do?
Should I say this?
Should I write that?
How does our messaging change? Advertising?
What will people think if I...?
Is it wrong to focus on my personal development at a time like this?
In many ways...the virus changes everything. Yet, the virus changes nothing.
Here's what is (should be) constant and never-changing...YOU. Your values. Who you are at your core.
Strategies? Yes. For many strategies are shifting and...
Emotionally speaking, a large percentage of people *highly* value certainty. Like, at an 8, 9 or 10 out of 10.
I know because my clients talk about it all the time and when I ask them to put a number on it - that's what they tell me. And sometimes they show me in action and in shared thoughts how highly they value certainty, even if they don't put a number on it. It's obvious in the language they use, the goals they set, why their goals are important to them, and in the plans they craft to...
My work with clients is deeply personal. They tell me things they don't tell their spouses or closest friends. Its like they're sharing a piece of their soul with me that hasn't seen the light of day since... well...ever!
What they share with me - doubts, thoughts, fears, nuances in perceptions - make them vulnerable. It's stuff that is hidden away from daily conversation. And my peeps - they don't embrace broad daylight vulnerability, But with me - they put it on the table so we...
