Hey, my friends. How are you doing? We have the honor and the curse of living in interesting times. We’re being asked to curb our most cherished instincts to beat an adversary we can’t see except in the toll it’s leaving.

I hope you and your family are safe, well, and prepared to wait this out. I know amazing things are on the other side of this for all of us.

Here are some #Rayquotes and affirmations to spur you forward this Friday night,

Motivational #RayQuotes for Your Saturday

How are you all doing, my friends? We’ve all crossed into new territory with the current circumstances. New is often stressful, even fearful. Let us remember that we are in this together. Let us see how much we take for granted when things are “normal” and learn to appreciate it more. Let us use this moment to raise our awareness point us on a better trajectory going forward.

Most of all, just in case no one else reminds you today, you are awesome!

Mindset Matters in the Face of Pandemic

Even in this moment of legitimate concern, let us remember that our mindsets are more important now than ever. Feeling depressed, a sense of fear, or a sense of loss is normal. We’ve all had our lives turned upside down and it’s just beginning.

However, our minds are powerful allies or adversaries in crisis. Study after study has shown that a healthy outlook boosts immune systems. More than that, though, a healthy mindset prevents our minds from joining in on a negative spiral and keeps us strong in the face of the negative, if necessary, sobriety of the news.

As I’ve been reminded in amazing posts by my friends Dennis Nappi II and Kat Hobson this week, crisis is also possibility and opportunity. The world is going to slow down for many of us in the near future. It’s time to reflect, reassess, and get regrounded. Turn off the noise some. Be thankful for what you have and the people around you.

We’re all in this together….now more than ever.

Let’s stay strong and remember who we are and what we’re capable of.

Just in case no one has reminded you today, you’re awesome!

Recession and Mindset RayQuotes and Affirmations

Financial markets are always really mental markets. With the current spread of COVID-19, markets have lost their minds. Keep yours!

#RayQuotes

Recessions are mental events more than financial events. There is only recession once the thought was planted.

A recession begins the moment people start believing in it and ends the moment they stop.

A recession is when authoritative figures shout fire in a crowded theater and then scoop up your abandoned popcorn cheap.

Booming minds create booming economies. Recession minds create recession economies.

Recessions are completely based on beliefs. The thought for a recession is planted in the mass consciousness. People and companies start acting fearfully like there’s a recession and then you get the actual recession. It’s mindset not finances.

Affirmations

My personal economy is robust and resilient!

My talents and skills make me recession-proof!

I refuse to participate in a recession mindset.

I’m so busy prospering I don’t have time for recession in my life!

My personal economy is booming. My mind is expanding and so are my opportunities!

We are living in a challenging moment in our lives and in history. Yet, even in the midst of difficulty, there is opportunity for those who master their thoughts, master their fears, and master the chaos.

These affirmations will help you.

Just in case no one reminded you today, you’re awesome!

Everyday Humanity – Day 338 of 365 Days to a Better You

In our age of instant and continuous news, we are all immediately made aware of horrific events and tragedies in our world. As we sit and watch these events, often live, on TV and the Internet, we know there are struggles for survival, acts of heroism, and the anguish of loss all happening and all within a single camera frame. We find ourselves, very humanly, asking a resounding WHY?

Why do things like this happen? Why do so many innocent people have to be harmed and die? We all have our suppositions and beliefs, but no real answers to questions like that. In an absence of answers, we are compelled to act – to help in anyway we can. Our most authentic humanity comes out and we all pitch in to do whatever we can – physically help the recovery, send money and supplies, send prayers and well wishes.

In these moments of stunning tragedy our humanity shows up big. We recognize, if only for the briefest of moments, that we humans are all traveling in the same “boat”. We are all subject to death. We are all subject to loss. We are all susceptible to the totally unexpected.

We have an innate sense that we can either lose ourselves in sadness over that fact or we can grasp each moment with zest and a determination to make the most of this precious life – a gift beyond all gifts.

For those closest to these events, the repercussions of these events resonate for years to come. For the rest of us, we typically move on with the change of the news cycle in a few days or become again distracted by things happening in our own world.

Here is what I wish for us all. May the surge of humanity we feel in these moments carry over beyond them. May it carry over into our daily lives. Why must we wait for tragedy to feel it? We lose it in our political, religious, economic, and ethnic differences. We forget it until a tragedy again shakes us awake.

Let normal days be filled with our humanity. Let us remember our humanity and that of our adversary in every encounter we have out in the marketplace of ideas.
