Always believe that something good is a about to happen
Apparently, talking about being positive in the current time may seem a little bit odd and non-realistic. But hey,what do you think the idea of being positive and optimistic means?
I sometimes hear people say :Because I have all these issues, I have to be pessimistic, I cannot be positive. And for me I really don’t get it. Being positive is the ability to see the good even in hard times.
Now we can all feel one big thing ,The uncertainty. What do I mean by that? It’s simple, for the first time in my life I can be sure that no one on earth could be sure about the crisis ,how or when we could be able to overcome it.
And you know what that’s exactly is the right time to test your positivity.
In the previous post I talked about the need to isolate yourself from what everyone is talking about on socials and starting to focus on what we can control to push our business forward.
The problem is that most people focus on the bad news and that’s focusing on what you cannot control.
Ask yourself what could you do right now to improve the quality of your life and your work
One of the best things you can do at these times is learning, and the two main objections I believe people have when advised to study any subject or take an online course are: Lack of money and lack of time.

What about money ? That’s what I have brought to you, a list of amazing courses that are being offered for free almost for the first time.
