It truly feels like we are in a movie right now but we can’t panic, we must remain calm. From time to time I like to bring sports analogies into my conversations to drive my point home, so bare with me. In the mid 80s I played 8th grade basketball with one of South Carolina’s greatest basketball player’s, Gerald Daise(google him), he was a phenomenal human being as well. To start, football season always started first, so we all decided to tryout for the team, but we soon found out that we didn’t have enough players to put on the field so our football season was forfeited. We took that extra time to build chemistry amongst us players and when the basketball season started we was like the Showtime Lakers. We had a great season, ended our playoff drought but we got knocked out in the 2nd round but I still considered that season a success. We took a failed football season and turned it into great basketball season. We didn’t let fear stop us, we kept pushing forward. Our goal was to make the playoffs and we did! The COVID 19 Pandemic is our opponent right now, we can’t let fear overwhelm us, we must keep our head in the game. We must stay calm during this storm and we must keep the faith, failure is not an option, this is our season for victory, this is our true awakening!
Happy Wednesday! Funny thing is, it was a foggy ride home this morning. Today I’m meditating on the word clarity. My favorite saying is, “If you test me I will fail every time.” This means, I’m not a mind reader. Be clear while communicating today, no one can read your mind. Clear communication saves time and energy and it saves headaches by both parties involved. Be truthful, be direct, less fog equals more productivity, more productivity means success, have a great day everyone.
We must change our mindsets from fear to confidence. We are living in extraordinary times, we can use this time to focus on our bodies and our overall health. We have this opportunity to be great, we have the opportunity to build our immune system to defeat this Coronavirus. I truly believe we can do it, our mental focus has to be sharp and relentless. We will win the battle over this invisible adversary, Amen!
I know it’s been a very strange and unfamiliar type of vibe lately, I just want to encourage you all to remain positive and speak life into your friends and family. Even I need it from time to time, be blessed.
We are resilient, we do not crumble under pressure, we rise to the occasion. During the storm the wind may bend us to the ground like a mighty palm tree, but trust and believe when the storm is over we will stand up nice and tall as we scream in victory!
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
