Are you worried about what your finances will look like a week from now? A month from now? Half a year from now? Two years from now?
Money is at the forefront of what seems to be everyone’s mind right now. You would only need to watch the news for 5-10 minutes before you heard something about the economy or unemployment rates. In this climate, with so many unknowns, it’s easy to get lost in future-thinking strategies that lead us straight to the mindset of scarcity and constant worry. High performers do everything in their power to stay out of this kind of thinking because it results in an unresourceful, painful state of mind.
High performers have one goal constantly in mind; personal growth. They understand that times of adversity are powerful vehicles for learning that require them to be creative and resourceful in their thinking to find solutions. High performers understand that being in a resourceful state involves focusing on things they have the ability to directly impact, like their attitude, what they invest their energy in, their focus, and their ability to pivot when necessary.
Do you feel like a high performer during COVID? Or are you finding yourself more on the side of worry and dead-end strategies? Try journaling some of your thoughts and ask yourself: “Can I control these things?” and “Does this sound like resourceful thinking?”. If you answered no to either of those questions, start brainstorming ways that you could flip your current thinking patterns to foster a better state of mind.
