What Else Could Possibly Go Wrong?
The year 2020 is turning out to be an interesting one: bushfires, floods, locusts, Brexit, impeachment trials, stock market crashes and, of course, the current coronavirus pandemic.
And now, just when we’re all thinking nothing else could possibly go wrong, we hear news reports about the ‘close approach’ of an asteroid large enough to cause global effects if it were to hit the planet.
Thankfully, a ‘close approach’ in scientific terms is not really that close at all. In fact, the asteroid is expected to zip by Earth with 3,908,791 miles to spare.
It could have hit us, but it didn’t.
Is this the change in fortune that we’ve been looking for?
At the very least, it’s a stark reminder that we’re never very far from disaster but until we feel the impact, we don’t concern ourselves too much with the ‘potential’ fall-out.
Maybe 2020 is a lesson to us all about preparing ourselves for change on a large scale; the wake-up call we all need to equip ourselves, in advance, with brand new skills that will help us to navigate change, to be more agile and responsive to unexpected events, and to be more mentally ready for the challenges ahead.
Asteroids are a threat from nature that we have no control over but there are lots of things that are within our locus of control that can help us determine the outcome of our lives.
So, when things are looking bleak, overwhelming, and difficult for you, or your family, or your business, try thinking about what it is you DO have control over and start making changes right away - the culmination of even the smallest of acts might be enough to turn the tide of whatever challenge you’re facing.
There is no doubt about it, 2020 has been a tough year so far and many of us have experienced hardship and sorrow in its wake but perhaps 2020 also marks the start of something new, different, better.
