With the recent hit of the covid-19 pandemic, the crisis has become a phase of every business today. Moving from the phase has turned challenging for the entrepreneurs. Crisis leadership is what one should have to deal with the situation effectively. With the current happenings across the world, it is easy to become overwhelmed with anxiety and distress but we should remember that we are the controller of our thoughts so is our ability to control emotions.
Think More Effectively During a Crisis
Experiences in life
Some experiences in life do happen without a reason. For example, your baby or family member getting sick or any other such events. These events in life neither are formed by your assumptions nor your actions, how you post them into your brain all depends on you. It can be assigned as a positive or negative side.
Create your thoughts
Your thoughts are the masters of your life. When an event happens or in an attempt to sense your external environment, knowingly or unknowingly, interpret the things around you. When there is a crisis happening around the world, it all depends on your interpretation whether to consider it as chaos or an opportunity for new ventures. A business seeing the crisis around may make the entrepreneur choose two pathways. One is getting depressed thinking that business has run into chaos or fueling new thoughts like shifting from individual building to coworking in Noida to save some bucks to run the business. You can view it as an opportunity to explore new opportunities with fewer investments.
Influence your emotions
Your interpretation of the situations around will influence your thoughts which in turn control your emotions. When you think that your business is in chaos, the emotions follow the suit creating anxiety and depression in life. When you look at it in a positive way, the current chaos might have taught you a new way of leading life. Taking the situation as an opportunity will fuel your thoughts, keep you energized all day leaving a positive impact on your health.
Emotions lead to actions
People respond to emotions with actions. When the emotions take the negative side like anxiety and depression so will the actions like suicidal tendency, isolation from the rest of the world and much more. You might be not acting at all and lay off the employees without thinking of consequences. These actions will push the business into trouble further and you may end up standing a big failure. When there is a positive impact on the emotions so will be your actions. You may conduct brainstorming sessions with the team to dig out better and new opportunities and also help in finding ways to reduce cost.
Actions create life
Your actions shape your life. All these actions of yours today are led by your thoughts on the events or an incident that happened. We cannot control the scenarios that happen in life but not our thoughts on it that lead to actions and shape up life. The magic happens with our response to things in life.
How should we respond to new changes?
When there is a sudden change in the way of our life like a current pandemic that has brought the life of the world to still, it turns difficult for the brains to accept the sudden new change that happens in life. Rather than forcing the brain to accept the sudden change in life, drive the brain to a numeral phase where it understands the ground realities and move it in positive directions making your thinking effective during crises.
