There Are Stars Under Those Clouds

Professional Speaker-Personal Development-Positive Attitude

We are facing a very scary time right now. Too many people are dealing with job loss, illness, and above all, fear. And the worst? The absolute worst is losing a belief in yourself and doubting your own self-confidence.

So, what are we to do? How do we face this monster and fight it with all we have?

Two words – HELP OTHERS.

I know we can’t visit anyone right now because of social distancing, but what about standing outside the window of a family member’s house or the nearby nursing home. You can wave to the people trapped inside, hold up colorful signs or even bring your pet to show them. Even if it brings one smile or one laugh, it’s worth the trip.

What about calling someone on the phone so they can actually hear your voice? Maybe set up a Zoom call so you can see them? I haven’t figured out how to do this myself, but you know what? I have found others who are more tech savvy than me and asked them to organize it. They send a link, I click it, and I get to see my friends and family. I’ve even heard about people dating through Zoom and other like services – what a hoot!

This is your time to get creative. This is your time to fight fear with everything you have inside of you. We will have a new normal but we WILL come out of this victorious. Just remember that people coming together can, and will, solve any problem life throws our way.

Those dark clouds you see now WILL clear, and behind them you will find an abundance of stars and glory beyond your wildest imagination. The beauty will take your breath away.

Spread Hope

Professional Speaker-Personal Development-Positive Attitude

Every day, all day, we hear about the spread of the corona virus. Well, starting right now, I’m going to flip the switch and start a campaign to spread hope instead. Yes, that’s right. I’ve just launched a new series that I call Spread Hope and I’m labeling that term #spreadhope.

What exactly does that mean? Well, every day I’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 – my business, my savings, my relationship and even my home. I was devastated and depressed and felt worthless. Some days, I didn’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  (scroll down to activity) and my Facebook page: It may be an idea, a video, a quote – 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.
