#3 Opportunity: Connect with your visions.
Do you think now isn’t the time to think about your visions? That’s wrong! The opposite is the case! Take now the time for your visions and this can be done in two different ways.
In one situation, you may not yet know your visions. I can only recommend you very strongly to take now the time to reflect upon your dreams and future. Use the free time you have now! Ask yourself the questions
- What is your vision of your future?
- Where would you like to be in three to five years?
- What would you love to do in your future?
- And where do you want to live?
Engage yourself with your vision. Imagine you are on the open sea on a ship. And your vision is your lighthouse. Currently the waves are very high, the sea is stormy and sometimes you’re lost and you don’t know which direction you should take. Especially in this situation it’s helps a lot if you have your destination in your mind, if you have your lighthouse clearly in front of you, which is shining the light for you to give you direction. Because this lighthouse stands for your values, for your longings and for your wishes. Therefore I can’t emphasize enough how much it is important, especially in times of a crisis, to have your lighthouse. Think about your vision and what you want! Now!
A second possibility is that you already know your vision. I currently have some clients who are in this phase of their visionary journey. One client, for example, is still employed, but he knows that he wants to start his own business. He is using now the time to write his book and to develop the business concept and strategy. If you would like to start your own business in future, too, or you would like to go from offline business to online business, then use now the time to think about your business and marketing strategy now. And you can use the time now to acquire the necessary knowledge, set up a supporting network of people (online, of course) and install the necessary infrastructure of systems and tools, in case you want to enter the online business world. Maybe you want to start a blog, maybe you’d love to start an online course…, now’s a great time to deal with it!
#4 Opportunity: Let your creativity flow and think outside the box.
It’s really fascinating how many people are developing new ideas at the moment, breaking boundaries, leaving their comfort zone and developing a lot of new products and opportunities. For example, there are completely new platforms where offline shops can now also sell their products online what they have never done before. In Austria, there are farmers who deliver their fresh products people living in the cities by simply leave them on the doorstep. There are completely new ways to keep in touch with friends on private level. For me meeting someone in person will be always the „coronation“ with respect to other contact possibilities.
I’m someone who loves to be in contact. And as this is difficult no, I us all possibilities I have to be in contact with friends. With an Italian friend I’ve organized an Italian cooking event, for example. We were a group of fifteen people from seven different. The friend of mine was the head chief and guided us through the several steps of the cooking process and we did everything together, online. In times like the ones we have, we had so much fun and it was really a balm for my soul.
And how funny that „Corona“ is part of the word „coronation“. Probably we should learn during this period also how precious it is to meet people in person.
#5 Opportunity: Slowing down.
Now you have the opportunity to get out of the high-speed train of life and shift down a few gears. I’m sure you notice how good this is for you and that your body can recover. And this is will definitely strengthen your immune system. And you might notice that you feel yourself much more. I personally do so. And also my clients make the experience by slowing down that their feelings show up much more. This is very good, because you feel that you’re on the way to yourself again. And of course, sadness can also arise in this way and a some tears might start flowing. I strongly recommend to be gentle with you in these precious moments and ask yourself the following questions.
- What do I really need?
- And what do I not need?
- What are my own needs?
- What have I neglected in the recent years, what would have been good for me and what am I actually longing for?
I sincerely hope that you’ve taken some inspirations with you and that you’ve got a new, refreshing view on the Corona time which leads you into confidence, inner strength and clarity to create after or even during the crisis the life you really want. It’s my objective to knock at your door to help you to change your perspective on the current situation to make the best out of it. And I want to convince you that it’s now the right time to become the captain of your own boat on the stormy sea with the shining lighthouse in some distance.
