What Can I Do To Create A Happy And Wealthy Future Under The Current Circumstances?
The COVID-19 we are facing now is threatening our lives and also threatening our livelihoods. That is why our government instituted financial assistance to individuals and SME’s. In as much as it threatens us, COVID-19 is also a great teacher. When threatened with loss, only do we appreciate those things that are important to us. Otherwise, we take them for granted and not notice. What are the things you are now fearful or worried about? * Are you fearful about you or your family getting infected? Will you survive if you do get infected? * Are you worried about your job? Your income? Your business? How many days forward are you able to survive? For many people, upon lockdown, they have no work, no income, no money and no food! For some, they are still able to sustain for another week, a month or a year. What’s your status? * How do you feel about not being able to go out and about? Can’t go to the mall, movies or shops. You can’t even go for a walk or a run or a game around your neighbourhood or neighbourhood forest? Countries’ borders are equally locked-down; so no sight-seeing either! If you felt fearful, worried, frustrated or even angry about losing any or all of the above, that is good! What it means is that you are learning from the teacher about the things that are important to you; your values. What are the things that are valuable to you that you have taken for granted? I suggest you take a moment to write down all of the things that are important to you. You may begin with the list of things that you have lost. Then continue on with the rest. List down 10, 20, 50, 100 or more! What list is this? What do I do with it? This is your list of valuables; the things that you value — your wealth! Now, take a considerable amount of time to appreciate and be grateful for each one of these things that are important to you. Notice how having these in your life enhances the quality of your life. These are what make you feel wealthy in your life. Feel that sense of gratitude about these. Next, extend this feeling of gratitude to all of the things that you have in your life right now. * I am grateful that I am still alive and healthy. I am more grateful that my family members are safe and well. * I am grateful that I still have food to eat, a house to shelter, clean clothes to wear and water to bathe. I still live in a comfortable and peaceful surrounding. * I am grateful that I am creative and active in finding solutions to overcome this dire situation. I have the presence of mind and resolve to take massive action, right now. * I am grateful that the government is coming in with financial assistance so that I can prolong my living. * I am grateful to the medical crew, police, army, farmers, growers, transporters, people stocking the shops and delivering food and other essential goods. I am grateful to all of you who are supporting our living. * I am grateful to all fellow Malaysians who are staying home to prevent further spread and escalation of this disease. * Thank you 🙏 Thank you 🙏 Thank you 🙏 I am hopeful that together, we shall overcome this. We shall find the vaccine to overcome this disease. We shall enjoy the new normal in health and wellness, with our family and friends, doing the things that are useful and meaningful to our community; full of joy and delight!
