Tip#229: Start Connecting With Others - Meet John Doe
How you overcome the current economic challenges will depend on having an optimistic mindset. And one way to do this is to remember that people are your greatest resource for help.
The economic crisis that's now hitting the world is being compared to the great depression of the late 20's and 30's which lasted for years. The good news is there is all kinds of help out there and that I'm already a resource with effective advice for unexpected change and crisis. This blog of motivational tips was always meant to be an online resource for anyone around the world.
Social Networking Sites
There are many online resources to help you find supportive people. Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are 3 social networking sites (also used for business) that have all provided me with meeting individuals who have helped me both personally and professionally.
Another new resource originating from Toronto is Daily Challenge.org and is all about building community through suggesting and doing daily acts of kindness. Famed spiritual guru Deepak Chopra is already a member.
I'm proud to say that I am friends with the creators of Daily Challenge.org and have created a special Motivatorman Minute video describing what they do and how it works. See my video: click here
Meet John Doe
The importance of connecting and supporting one another is explored in many Frank Capra movies such as It's A Wonderful Life and Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. I recently watched another that energized my optimism during this economic situation we are all in.
Meet John Doe stars Gary Cooper as a homeless man who accepts an unusual job of representing the everyday man for a major newspaper needing to boost sales. He ends up inspiring an entire nation with heartfelt speeches about the everyday person and how important it was to help one another in difficult times.
Being neighbourly and building community was the message of the movie and is a much-needed message for overcoming today's problems. You just have to take action and keep an open mind and heart when it comes to meeting new people in your own life.
We're All In The Same Boat
So remember that cultivating supportive relationships will help you overcome your current challenges. And those actions will help you build an optimistic mindset. Watch your favourite movies because that will also help increase your positive emotional energy.
We're all in the same boat so start connecting with others already near you. You'll be surprised at how good you feel knowing you are not alone in your challenges!
