Dean has been an entrepreneur for 30 years, he has been to multiple down markets, and this uncertainty is not new to him. The only thing he is certain is this is not the end of the world. We’ve been to wars, past pandemics, and other challenges and we’ve survived. The key is just setting the right mindset during this quarantine.

Ask yourself, who do you want to be at the end of this? Are you just going to hide in fear or are you going to find ways to get ahead from others? If you choose the latter, think about strategies to level up your life. Start on simple things that need your focus, and work on things you don’t have time before. Don’t focus on regret, on what you’ve lost, and on things, you don’t have but find ways to invest & grow, work on the relationships, start your business, and save money.

Moreover, according to Dean, this is the time where you can thrive by planting seeds so you can harvest down the road. How you spend this time is how you are planting seeds by being energized, and innovative. Look at this time as a gift to evolve and improve yourself. This is the time we need more energy. Go with self-education or get a coach, practice more, & practice when no one is looking. This is not the time to wait for someone else to fix it. This is a time to step up, to be a leader, and to show people that you can thrive.

Develop success habits and rituals. Turn on your defense and offense buttons, and be grateful whatever you have right now. Also, remember to level up your virtual connection in this social-distancing time.
