"What to Do? That's what my highly successful client worried"Dateline: Los AngelesIn the face of the new pandemic sweeping the globe and causing all kinds of uncertainty, a client in a near panic asked me, "What to do?"To wit I answered, "What do you mean?"He continued: "I'm so worried. I've never seen anything like this before. Runs on supermarkets, a crashing economy, paranoia of being close to people, and a general sense of fear everywhere I go?""Is that really accurate" I asked?Again, to wit this very high functioning wealthy business leader said, "That's how I see it"First of all, the sky is not falling!Did you hear that? The sky is not falling.Dr. Wayne Dyer was famous for reminding us that the way you look at something changes what you look at"This means, change your perspective and change your outcome. Garbage in – garbage out. Beauty in – Beauty out. Can it really get simpler than that? People love to panic and cower in fear, when it's so much easier to just change the thing that's scaring the bejesus out of you. So the question stands what to do?>For one thing, create a context for success. It's not only important, but absolutely crucial that you have a belief that good things are coming. After all, gray skies are gonna clear up. So put on a happy face. It's not hard to do. Here's how to put on a happy face in bad times.Ready?Point the corners of your mouth up at the sun and keep them there. #Instant smile!>For another thing, you're not alone. Most people, young or old, male or female, tall, short, fat thin, rich, poor, smart, or just plain dumb, we're all being effected by the pandemic and the economic distresses. So you're not alone. And if you are truly alone, find community. It's everywhere. Lots of people would like to have you come over. Find them.Also:You can get active. Go do something that takes your focus off whatever you're worried about and focus on something that makes you happy.Greg Jacobson, author of Think Yourself Happy says, "Do more of what makes you happy and less of what makes you unhappy. Do more of things that make you feel good or great and less of what makes you feel lousy. Be around more people that admire and respect you and less time with people who make you feel small. Get it?Do more good things and do less bad things and you'll feel better in no time at all.>And finally, Find joy in the moments you're given. Uncertain or fearful or something? Give it up and take up something that makes or made you feel alive and invigorated. It's true that the power to create anything at any time is in the palm of your hands. Well, actually, it's all in your mind.Michael J.
