HOW TO KEEP GOING AND HAVE CONFIDENCE WHEN YOU’RE TIRED
Knowing how to not feel discouraged when you’re tired, and how to keep going when the going is tough, long, hard or boring, is one of the key elements of staying confident in the face of challenge. If your year has been filled with curveballs, or if you’re feeling intimidated and overwhelmed with just how much longer you need to keep going, keep climbing and keep trying, then these confidence strategies are for you. Nothing will feel too big for you when you learn to think with confidence.

RIGHT, SO HOW LONG WILL THIS KEEP GOING?
We don’t get to know how long things will take
-Choose to be responsive, not reactive
-Choose to be accepting, not anxious
-Choose to be growing, not grumbling
-Choose to be without all the answers, not speculating
2020, what a year!
-Keep a journal of the good things
-Keep a historical record of what we’re walking through
-Keep a mindset of openness and flexibility
-Keep focused on what matters
-Keep your routine simple and habits high-level
-Keep asking yourself what this now makes possible
It’s okay that everyone reacts differently
-This is hard for everyone
-Everyone hard is hard
-You can do hard things
-Not everyone needs to agree with you
-It’s okay to be different
THERE’S POWER IN A PIVOT
What does this now make possible?
Go on, make a list for what you can now see are possible that weren’t before now. (Maybe this is relation to 2020 itself, or maybe a broken relationship, a personal loss, a disappointing outcome, etc.)
