COVID-19 has many in fear today. Based on the media’s consistent updates of the virus global effect, most would say the fear is warranted.
But have we stopped to ask ourselves why we fear? Is it the virus itself or is it the impact on the economy which could have a direct effect on our daily routine.
While those issues matter, our biggest fear is our own life. The fear of death.
At the risk of sounding morbid, we can count on our taxes to be paid and that we will all cease to exist one day.
So the question is if you knew this was the last month of your life how would you live? Would you take time to stock up on canned goods and toilet paper? Or would you use your creative talents to make an impact while you still can?
Yes, wash your hands thoroughly, stock up on goods if you must. But don’t allow fear to take the precious time you have left to live in purpose. Use COVID-19 as an excuse to make that business or creative project come to life.
