Conquer from within

How to Conquer Life and Career Setbacks

In Article, Performance, Success & Mindset Reset by admin

The impact of the COVID19 pandemic will be felt for years to come. Large-scale retrenchments soared and 2,2 million jobs were shed in the second quarter of 2020 alone. 

The uncertain future of the economy fed the fear of losing the progress made in careers, opportunities disappearing and suddenly we started questioning our own worth.  Panic set in. We start to question everything about ourselves.

Alongside the uncertainty and string of questions arises a desire for certainty and a need to find the right answers. 

We are looking for solutions to overcome rejection, resentment, guilt, anxiety, stress, unhappiness or uncertainty. And the place we start looking, is the place we have been conditioned and trained to look. And because this place holds no true answers, we become even more despondent and lost through the search.

The problem is, we have been taught to look at outside influences for answers to our burning questions, when in fact the secret is that the real answers can only be found within. 

The perfect solutions, the opportunities you should pursue and the real answers to your deepest questions are already inside of you. They are just waiting to be discovered. 

Until you re-program yourself to look within you first, you will always be losing the greatest opportunities offered to you by life. Connecting to this inner self, being able to hear this inner voice begins with nurturing, conditioning and training yourself. Once you achieve this, you will be able to tap into the answers within to conquer life and career setbacks that may come your way.

Here are 3 steps to nurture, condition and amplify your inner self:
  1. Know yourself - constantly develop your understanding of self: know what drives you, your passions, beliefs, values, strengths.
  2. Grow yourself - no good can happen without constant growth. Commit to self-growth and development to equip yourself with the mindset and tools to conquer, overcome and embrace challenges and opportunities that come your way.
  3. Be yourself - your greatest potential will be revealed when you know and grow yourself to the point that you are comfortable and excited to always be yourself.

Knowing and understanding yourself is not a simple process, but a process worthy of your time and commitment if you want to be ready to conquer life and career setbacks that may come your way.
