We may have to practice social distancing for a while, but that doesn’t mean emotional disconnection. We are all adjusting to a new normal, so staying engaged with friends, family, and life is more important now than ever before. There may be more distance between us, but the most important force on the planet LOVE, can’t be quarantined. Exercise your heart today by reaching out to someone who might need your support. What we can all spread right now is a VIRUS of COMPASSION. #RisingStrongerTogether
We have persevered through the Great Depression, World War II, upheavals and riots in the 1960s, 9/11, and the 2008 global financial crash. The way we got through it was TOGETHER. Flex your resiliency muscles by having hope, staying calm and knowing this too shall pass. Your actions make a difference so what kind of leader can you be right now for your kids, employees, students, congregation, and community? I read the results from Gallup’s biggest global study this week, and it served as a good reminder of how we can make a difference. Here is the Gallup question and the results. What do citizens want from leaders and institutions in times of crisis? Drumroll… to lead our world with (1) compassion, (2) stability, (3) trust, and (4) hope and inspiration for the future.
We are facing an invisible enemy and a global pandemic. So, how can you show up? Don’t be a bystander, be the leader the world is seeking to follow.
