Every day, all day, we hear about the spread of the corona virus. Well, starting right now, Iâ€™m going to flip the switch and start a campaign to spread hope instead. Yes, thatâ€™s right. Iâ€™ve just launched a new series that I call Spread Hope and Iâ€™m labeling that term #spreadhope.
What exactly does that mean? Well, every day Iâ€™m posting an inspirational tip that will help you through the day, sometimes through the next minute. How do I know these techniques work? Because they helped me during one of the darkest times of my life. It was 2008 and that recession was much like the challenge we are facing today. At that time, I was a real estate investor with a lot of property in Florida. When the market imploded, I lost everything â€“ my business, my savings, my relationship and even my home. I was devastated and depressed and felt worthless. Some days, I didnâ€™t know how I was going to get out of bed.
Every day I heard of businesses closing with thousands of people being laid off. I then had to find the strength to go out and find a job; find a way to rebuild my life. Well, the techniques that helped me recreate myself are the same ones I share with you every day on my LinkedIn site https://www.linkedin.com/in/nancydepcik/Â (scroll down to activity) and my Facebook page: http://bit.ly/2IZ9ZCO. It may be an idea, a video, a quote â€“ anything, something, to help you manage the fear and stress you are feeling right now.
I also encourage you to share your own ideas. Tell us what helps to bring a smile to your face. How can we help each other. We are all in this together.
