Can there be a Silver Lining to C-19?

The Silver Lining? 

Whenever you are experiencing stress, frustration, disappointment, anger, sadness or internal turmoil, it’s likely to be your intellectual resistance to significant change and uncertainty. In order to move forward, it is important to recognise you are in control of your thoughts and actions. If you are determined to improve the opportunities available to you, it is up to you to make a positive change.

There’s no doubt about it, C-19 is impacting all of us. During this stressful and constantly changing period, many of us are struggling with health and wellbeing, re-assessing work and relationships, contending with our finances and weight. But, perhaps the very fact that this pandemic may force you to stay at home, have some down time, be on your own for a while, provide the time to re-evaluate your values and core beliefs, and afford you with the space you need to reflect on the bigger picture, is the best silver lining of all.

This is not something you have to do on your own. Coaching can help you to think things through, work out what to focus on, what your priorities are, what options are available to you and create a plan of action. It’s time to re-consider what you want your life to look like, so be proactive and take this opportunity to pause.

Paul Becque

Paul Becque is a Transformational Coach and Mindset Trainer. He helps people take their ideas and plans from where they are now, to where they want to be. For the past ten years, he has worked with a wide range of clients, seeing them step out of their comfort zone, enjoy real growth and get the results they want and deserve. But change requires action and consequently, his coaching goes above and beyond the usual lip-service and accountability chatter. Exceptional service is found within the experience of lasting transformation and empowerment – this is based on effective choices, powerful decisions, and constructive behaviour. Great change doesn’t happen overnight but you can take the right steps today.

For more than 30 years, Paul has conducted his life as if it were a personal development experiment in an effort to understand the human mind, habits and behaviour. This has provided him with opportunities to travel the planet, talk to audiences around the world and empower others to flourish in all aspects of their lives. However, he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Not everything was a bed of roses. Paul has endured his fair share of dark days, hair-raising moments and occasions when he considered ending it all. It’s these painful junctures that fuelled his compulsion to understand what life is all about, and why only a handful of people seem to enjoy complete success and fulfilment whilst most of us ricochet from one compromise to another in an effort to find some comfort and at best, moments of happiness.
