Can you find purpose through chaos? How many situations have we experienced as a society that had brilliance come out the other side? Read on...
So many are going through the experiences of anxiety, fear and even depression. I've seen clients of mine go through these emotional changes and wonder what will be the state of the world. So how do you get out of it and come out better than you were before?
First, let's put the stake in the ground and say you can absolutely turn pain into passion if you choose. It's just a matter of seeing the flipside of a situation. When you're in the eye of the storm its hard to see, I totally get it. But think about any situation you or we as a society have experienced and the positive elements that have come out of them.
We endured about 30 hours without electricity, many people died but outside of the initial chaos, New Yorkers turned the blackout into a moment of urban solidarity. People started to direct traffic since traffic lights were out; they helped each other out of trapped subway cars; welcomed in stranded colleagues who couldn't get home; restaurants held impromptu cookouts, sharing their food and beer with neighbors. It was an amazing site!
It's a small version of the chaos happening now but if there's one thing I know for sure is that these situations show people's underlying MO's. We are social animals who at the end of the day want to connect and help. No matter what the situation. Even now people are zooming, facetiming, delivering food, creating and giving face masks to areas in need, and connecting in so many different ways while offering help and maintaining relationships. Wifi, the internet and electricity in general have been a blessing... seriously!
So when asked is using your talent, skills and strengths to serve and contribute to humanity inappropriate or is it even right to pursue your purpose right now? The answer is no way. People need you now more than ever!
For those blessed to be healthy, which is the large majority, this pandemic, can be used as a great catalyst to catapult you to major growth while you’re staying at home or working at home. It's a rare opportunity to know yourself better, learn the strengths and skills you have, and what motivates and feeds your soul. Stillness and social distancing can truly spark a deep soul searching for many.
