Many of us are now at an inflection point, with the “old normal” firmly behind us, and the prospect of embracing the actions needed to shape our own destinies and be more resilient and resourceful. How do you come out re-energized and ready for success?
In my book Holistic Wealth: 32 Life Lessons To Help You Find Purpose, Prosperity and Success
, I outlined a roadmap in order to reset for success after life-altering setbacks. The messages shared in my book Holistic Wealth resonated with people from all walks of life, including Thrive Global founder Arianna Huffington and the producers of Jada Pinkett Smith’s web TV series, “Red Table Talk.” I know that we can overcome the chaos of adversity to reset for success after COVID-19, and thrive financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually and in relationship to others.
I’ve been training Certified Holistic Wealth™ Consultants at the Institute on Holistic Wealth
, and I’ve gained even deeper insights on the toolbox needed to reset for success. Through lessons learned from top entrepreneurs, celebrities, and influencers (in my book) as well as on the Holistic Wealth Podcast
, it's clear that a combination of mental strength, grit, and intentional lifestyle design is needed to reset for success.
As world events compel us to reset our lives, I’m confident that you can come out of it successfully and more prosperous than before. Here Are some strategies to reset for success after COVID-19:
Be Bold. Take Measured Risks.
Every risk is an opportunity waiting to happen (if executed well).
Outline A Personal Mission For Yourself
Know Your Personal Financial Identity
The next 24 months will be a crucial period in terms of resetting after COVID-19. It’s critical not to follow the crowd as society opens up and the spending starts to hit unprecedented levels. An article by Bloomberg indicated that Americans have $1.7 Trillion to burn in revenge spending. Revenge spending can range from a luxury vacation to buying a new car, house, or on a clothing shopping spree. The key is not to get tempted to follow the crowd.
Craft Your Networking Plan
In my book Holistic Wealth
, I outlined strategies for your networking plan. This is a crucial part of resetting for success after COVID-19. Studies show that 95 percent of your success or failure can be predicted based on who you spend time with. Surround yourself with people who are successful in the path you want to take. The Institute on Holistic Wealth has a membership platform for networking and taking steps to empower you to achieve Holistic Wealth.
Take Care of Your Mental and Emotional Health
After COVID-19, we could all benefit from holistic healing.
From our emotional and mental health as well as our physical health, COVID-19 has shown us that these are all interrelated and we need to take the time to improve these areas of our lives in order to live holistically wealthier.
Take Accountability Seriously
I’ve written before about the benefits of starting a Holistic Wealth Project Group
. Participating in a holistic wealth project group can boost your happiness and joy and enable you to have accountability partners. Accountability partners can build momentum and enthusiasm for everyone's goals and help each other to live according to their mission and to cultivate a holistic wealth mindset™. A study by the American Society of Training and Development on accountability found that there is a 65% chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you've committed to, you will increase your chance of success by up to 95%.
