LUYL 059: How to Balance Growth with Safety

Welcome to the Level Up Your Life podcast hosted by the awe-inspiring, motivating, and passionate Mark Black. As a double transplant survivor Mark has a very exclusive and different take on life. Mark is what all motivational speakers aspire to. He is kind, spirited, and animated with a pure and honest heart. When you listen to Mark speak you can’t help but become excited. Mark cares about helping you get to the next level in all areas of life, work, home, mental, physical and emotional.

In this episode, Mark discusses the covid-19 pandemic and how you can deal effectively with it and the challenges it has created. It is all too easy to become overwhelmed when things like this happen, but Mark will help you think through the challenges with a level head and calm heart.

In this episode, we discuss how to strike a healthy balance between striving for continuous growth and improvement, with maintaining stability and safety, especially in challenging situations. In the episode we focus on three key strategies:

  1. Acceptance – It is impossible to move forward constructively until we are willing to face the current reality completely. Even if our current situation is difficult, even dire, until we face it head on, we have no hope of moving forward constructively.
  2. Adapt: New realities require new strategy and tactics. What worked before, may not work now. Goals you set previously may no longer be realistic, they may not even serve you anymore. Discover what works by being adaptable and trying new things.
  3. Thrive: Some people survive challenging times, others thrive through them. Without discounting very real constraints, the difference between these two groups is mostly their mindset. Do you choose to learn and make progress despite obstacles, or are you only in self-preservation mode?
