What happens happens for a reason. Watch, listen, feel, experience, learn and grow.
Wait on the sidelines until you feel that the bear market is nearing its end.
You have a purpose, so choose it. You have control, so use it. You are who you choose to be, and the way you choose to act, in this new moment.
You cannot push forward by staying safe and comfortable. You cannot make great advances by holding tightly to the tired excuses and outdated assumptions.
Your capacity for learning and improvement has no limit.
Nudge yourself away from what you already know, and discover how very much more you can do. By acknowledging that there’s a problem, you express an initial degree of confidence in your ability to handle it. By digging in and going to work on the problem, you set success in motion.
Even when the challenges seem impossibly overwhelming, there is always something you can do to make a positive difference. Do it now, and work your way steadily forward.
You’ve made plenty of mistakes. Now is when you can positively apply the lessons you’ve learned from those mistakes. Failure is not the worst thing that can happen. The worst thing that can happen is to do nothing.
