    Tech Speak for you Geeks

    Discovering hope in challenging times ….

    This

    has been a tough

    time for people throughout the world

    .

    All around the local high streets are stores

    and

    cafes

    that I used to go to that have gone out of business ! Even the local DVD store which seemed like one of the busiest stores on the street

    has just closed down!

    With all that going on , many people

    find

    a high level of stress

    and worry .

    But

    the other side of the coin is that this could be one of the

    most incredible times of opportunity

    that we have had in a long time .

    Many things happen like waves

    – an ebb and flow of movement . Like emotions

    – they start

    from nowhere,

    grow into

    a peak,

    before fading away once more

    Now the thing is, if we always felt the full intsensity of the emotion , we’d soon get used to it and

    we’d actually stop feeling it . That is why some people I know would

    like to feel happy all the time,

    but if they did constantly experience happiness the whole time ,

    they would actually stop feeling it , because we’d get used to it.

    Contrast is critical or we just get used to things and don’t notice them any more – we need night so we know day .

    Just as with waves and emotions , tougher times

    will fade

    away and lead to

    new opportunities . The economy might

    dip sometimes , but will lead to even greater times of promise .

    Here are a few ways to inspire

    hope:

    1 Develop your resilience

    When times are tough , ask yourself ‘what can I

    develop

    from this?’ or ‘How can I grow

    from this?’. Every

    difficulty

    you face

    makes you stronger . Keep reminding

    yourself that ‘this too will pass!’ and

    afterwards you will have developed new

    strength

    2 Review your resources

    Remind yourself that there have been other challenges in the past

    which may have been

    challenging

    at the time, but you  tapped in to the inner strength to get to the other side .

    That inner strength is

    there within you now and can help you with

    your current

    situation.

    3 Plan a long term vision

    Take time to brainstorm

    what you want in 10 years time, or even further into the future .  Things may be more challenging

    in the short term, however in

    future times ahead , they’ll be

    so many

    opportunities to create the life you want to. Develop your long term thinking to help you know

    that even now you can begin your progress towards the future you want . Allow this vision to help motivate you

    through challenging

    times – remember the most successful entrepreneurs

    have usually had more challenges than the rest of us put together!

    – determination gets them through and gives them even greater strength after .

    4

    Take taime to really appreciate those things that you already have

    Frequently take you to write down in a journal all the many things that help make

    you feel good in life. Most things that we cherish the most don’t cost money

    – friends, family, a sunset, hiking or experiencing the real beauty of the countryside . Take

    frequent moments

    to enjoythe many experiences and people

    that you may have been taking for granted and get the most out of life now.
