In today’s challenging times each of us are experiencing dozens of emotions from fear to anger, depression to apathy and more. How does one regain their focus, let alone rebuild a business or life under such extreme challenges? No matter what it is that has you unbalanced, these five practical steps will help you regain clarity, focus, and drive.

Step 1: If you are angry at someone or something, write an anger letter and say what needs to be said, then go outside and burn it (in a safe place) and imagine the anger floating away in ashes.

Step 2: Control your thoughts and conquer your fear. Breathe in through your nose, hold it for four seconds, then breathe out through your mouth. Hold it for five seconds and repeat. Do this while listening to soothing music for about three minutes (or longer). Repeat multiple times a day. This will activate the frontal cortex, the part of the brain that is the source of imagination and inspiration.

Step 3: Imagine what you want to create (life, business, health, relationship) and write it down, speak it out loud, feel what it feels like to have achieved it. You cannot create what you cannot imagine or feel.

Step 4: Just say yes and choose the best. When you say no, you stop the flow. Saying yes gives yourself permission to explore what comes your way, which may seem totally out of the blue or not what you expected. In other words, ride the flow of the universe and remove all the limiting thoughts that stop you.

Step 5: Find a support network: Remember that innovating or adapting is one third inspiration, followed by two thirds perspiration. After you are all inspired and start to act on your imagination, it gets harder and you need a support network.
