The last nine or so months have been hard.

There’s no getting away from that.

I don’t know a single person that hasn’t been negatively affected in some way by COVID.

Sure, some more than others.

And some have benefitted from the situation in some ways.

But, yeah, it’s been tough.

But, as Billy Ocean sang “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”.

We can choose to be a victim of the circumstances we find ourselves facing……….

To let them crush us………

To be destroyed by it all.

Or we can chose to be a “victor”.

The dictionary defines a victim as;

“a person who has come to feel helpless and passive in the face of misfortune or ill-treatment.”

And a victor as;

“a person who defeats an enemy or opponent in a battle, game, or other competition”

In life the battle is rarely with other people.

It’s often in our own head.

The thoughts and beliefs that make it all harder than it has to be.

That external game still needs to be played, of course.

We still need to do the things that will improve or maintain (or create damage limitation to) our situation.

But when we gain more control over what goes on between our ears, all that stuff becomes much easier to do!

Much love,

Jon ‘My Nanna’s dad was called Victor’ Hall

P.S. Only the other day I had a comment on a video in our members only group. “Are you in my head” is said. “I’m in a lot of people’s heads” I replied. That’s what we do – help change what’s going on upstairs so the rest becomes much easier than it has been. Check if you’re ready to take the next step with that.
