Today’s Takeaway: The events of the past year have impacted all of us, but sometimes the most challenging times present the biggest opportunity for positive change. Sometimes it can actually motivate us to become a better person. Try to imagine your best life. What does it look like? How do you feel? The pandemic can make this difficult, but it will not last forever. Real change takes time. Surround yourself with people who truly support your dreams and share your vision so they can hold you accountable in a helpful way. Don’t let anyone discourage you from achieving your dreams. Think about what small action you can take right now that can help you achieve your dreams. Take a chance! You can only fail if you don’t try. Never give up trying to live the life that you want.
