The new, new.

Lately everything is shifting, fast.

Things keep evolving so quickly, we are constantly being asked, or feeling the need to adapt.

Everything is new again.

Whenever you undertake something new there’s always an adjustment phase. It may even leave you feeling hopeless; you may feel you don’t know what you’re doing.

Doubt and fear strike. But with every new challenge, remember this is temporary.

Whether it’s a new way of working, a new job, a new baby, a new change in living circumstances, a new skill or a new physical challenge, like me learning how to literally bend over backwards. It’s the same thing.

You will have moments where you feel like you’re a failure and you want to give up. The main thing is that you keep going, little by little. That’s how you learn and grow.

Straight through the eye of the storm, as hard and as frustrating as it. It may bring you to tears, keep persisting, don’t hide.

One the most challenging things to manage in these times, is your head. It is your biggest limiting factor.

Take a moment to think about it though, everything you’ve ever achieved that was worth achieving, took time, it took adjustment, it didn’t just happen. When you learned to write, to play a sport, how to drive, how to be a new parent, how to cook or create, it took time, it took persistence and consistent effort. You learned, you adapted, and then you flourished.

Our minds may take a little longer to adjust to things at the moment, we mammals don’t evolve as quickly as a virus for example, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Everyone has days where they just want to throw in the towel, just do the bare minimum, take a small step, that’s better than no step.

Focus on the one thing you can do, then the next, then the next.

Do the things that keep leading you in the right direction.

There will be ups and downs but you will get through this, even if you feel like you can’t.

Nothing is out of your reach, if you keep working at it.
