Turning Point in Life 3 Notes

Due to this Covid-19, most people called it the coronavirus pandemic, it has changed most people’s life massively if not, everyone somehow gets affected by the economic crisis. People lost their jobs, cities, and countries locked down. Turning Point in Life 3 Notes to take.

Many of us not sure what to do with our life, panicking of… how to save my job? What if I will never get a job, what if we have to stay home for another 6 months, what if the virus will not go away and what else can I do to make a living?… on and on. This can be a serious crisis for some, a huge turning point for many. This is why making passive income is important.

A negative experience can be a turning point in your life as it teaches you to look at things from a different angle. Perspective is everything. – Kristy Dunphey, author of Retired at 27.

Before this Covid-19, I planned to leave my job 6 months ago. Early this month, 7 people being let go from my workplace, the remaining workers being pay cut from 10% to 20%. All TV commercial production activities are canceled. We are lucky that some clients still come to us to do a simple job with humble budgets.

A Turning Point in Life?

I am here in Singapore for 10 years, and I thought it’s time for me to go back to my country to spend more time with my parents. just about time to leave, here comes the covid19 pandemic, it causes Malaysia has locked-down, I am stuck here without a job, soon.

To me, I am not that worried since I have decided to leave my workplace, I have started planning to save money that is able to sustain myself for a year at least, to be able to live in my country, how? I feel lucky that I don’t have to take up a sudden hiccup amidst this pandemic.

Update: I have returned to KL, Malaysia and fully working from home on my online business now.

It is strange, but true, that the most important turning-points of life often come at the most unexpected times and in the most unexpected ways. – Napoleon Hill

Turning Point in Life 3 Notes

1. Negative Noises Around

On the other side of the world, my jobless friends feel stressful for bills, friends with a job have no sales, business deals have canceled. Malaysians have to stay home, only one person can drive out to buy food, no more than 1 person in any vehicle. Permit needed to work in the office. No hanging out, no restaurants hoping, only delivery service. Groceries stores can open from 8 am – 7 pm.

Some unfortunate events are happening due to the lockdown. Foreign workers are jobless, it causes more crimes like robbing, snatching, fighting, and dispute. They need food, money to survive and perhaps feed their family. We are not advised to go out, more havoc could happen in a quiet alley or even open street.

Fortunately, my family members are safe. My dad is worry about his job, he is a stockbroker, he is trying to work from home but the stock market is bad.

In every life there is a turning point. A moment so tremendous, so sharp and clear that one feels as if one’s been hit in the chest, all the breath knocked out, and one knows, absolutely knows without the merest hint of a shadow of a doubt that one’s life will never be the same.  Julia Quinn

2. Resetting Our Lifestyle – Stay Creative

To me, nothing is more important than getting rid of being sick and ill. Everyone should avoid visiting the clinics, let the infected people have the priority aids. Protecting ourselves can prevent our family from falling sick too.

Encouraging my friends and family, this pandemic might affect our job, our lifestyles, restraining us from our daily activities, but it also a good time for us to stay home, to read more, to readjust our 2020 resolution, to spend time with family. Learn to cook, lessen eating outside food, learn how to survive at home and find pastime activities.

The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives all hurt. – Max Lerner

3. Save Our Life First

Stress and worries are unnecessary. Resetting, replan our life, learn how to deal with the crisis, dealing with our emotions are more crucial. Be patient the bad times will eventually mellow down and gone, it just takes time. Life is precious, every day we lose some people, we have to stay calm and stay fit. Worries and anxiety will only weaken our immune system.

Lastly, read more, sing more, paint more. Do anything that is therapeutic. Outdoor activities are good too, remember to also wear a mask, and practice social distancing.

Stay safe everyone. Till next time.

The turning point in the life of those who succeed usually comes at the moment of some crisis. – Napoleon Hill

  1. I’ve been looking at it as a huge turning point. It comes at the right time because I’d taken a personal training job in Cleveland and due to the massive shutdown, I was basically out of work with my old job requiring an extended waiting period to reapply. But, I have four blogs that I’m now able to dedicate eight to twelve hours a day to improving. Plus with the extra money and the stock market hitting rock bottom, – why not make a few investments along the way as well. Blessing in disguise? Absolutely.

    Had I not stayed at an apartment-hotel, I’d have signed a lease to an apartment up there, three hours from home, with zero income and probably hardly a penny to spare after all the paperwork, utility hookup feels, etc. I’d still be able to work but I’d have faced a ton of stress in the process, so I not only saved losing a fortune – I also have enough to last me a few months while I work on my books, affiliate networks, and a few investments in stock while the market’s low. 

    • Hi Todd, it’s a tough period for everyone I can’t agree more. Looking at the bright side, it’s good that you have a few options to work on to make money. Perhaps the above-mentioned things you can do could be one of your turning point of creating passive income. Stay safe and keep going.

  2. A crisis in your life is indeed often a major turning point. It is also time to reflect and reasses what you have and what you want to do. With this pandemic that is forcing us to stay at home and not have social contact, it means we have time to look at other options and opportunities. 

    We can learn new skills online and look at ways of working online and keep our minds active. Hope you will stay healthy.

    • Yes, that’s right. Only we are being tight down, we can allocate time for opportunities. Keep learning and reading will help us on going through the tough times.

  3. First of all, I want to say thank you very much for posting this article. It is the most vital issue or we can say trending issue nowadays. If we observe than we can the turn of commoner’s life. how they used to do the work and now what are they doing? It a big turning moment for the society. COVID-19 or corona virus are the most dangerous for the people. But I don’t have any idea what type of changes we are facing. After seeing this article, I have got full information and that’s really hurtful to me.

    At the End l would like to say again thank you very much for publishing this article. Obviously, I will refer this with my friends and my companion so that they can get some information. Can I share your article on my social media?

  4. Hi, I loved reading your article. I’m on the other side of the world, strange enough that this epidemic brought the word together. I realize it daily that people reach more out to each other than before. It’s the same here in Africa(Namibia) where I’m from. Everybody talks about it, some panic more than others, people buy groceries for 3 months, Sadly some can’t afford to stock up with enough food. 

    The elderly, the more vulnerable don’t leave their houses anymore. But it’s not the end of the world, the more we panic, the sicker and stressed we became. Now more than ever, is the time talk to our Allmighty. And like you said Families get closer, what a good thing in so many households. 

    I personly always believe, that things do happen for a reason. We will understand why this happen, one day. 

    Greetings

    • Thanks. Yes, this is not an end, this will eventually go away, what we need to do is to stay positive. Help the people around us to remain calm. There are always a solution if we keep searching.

  5. I’m also locked down in the flat in Czech Republic. I’m a chef in the restaurant and obviously my workplace is closed. It’s kind of a pity, cause I liked going there, meeting people I work with. On the other hand, that’s a huge opportunity to rest and focus on things there was never enough time for and I’m happy to do so. However, how long will it take, to get back to a normality again? Everything is always changing, and it’s crazy how just one virus can lock down the whole world. It open eyes, how little control we have in the end. Though, we can control, what we can control, that’s why I have now more time to take care of my online business and that’s one of the things I can control being locked down in home. Thank you Yongli!

    • Well, it definitely takes some time. Please bear with it. Good to hear that you got more time to work on your online business. So that when things happen, we have other sources of income. Stay home more and take care.

  6. Many thanks for sharing such a motivational article with us. The people of the world are now facing problems in their lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the people are are staying at home, leaving their jobs behind. I used to do a job, joined in recent times but unfortunately the current situation of the world forced me to leave my job and stay indoor. This is a turning point for me, right now I am learning about doing things online. Searching sources to earn through online. Don’t know how far I can go, but I have to keep trying to make a living. 

    • You’re welcome. Yes, crisis makes us look for ways, more open to other options. Don’t give up, we will go through this together. Stay strong and take care.

  7. Yes, this is really a turning point in our lives.

    I thought we are the only ones experiencing the brunt of this COVID-19 lockdown here in the Philippines. I’m sorry to hear that you guys from there over Singapore are also experiencing lockdown problems and I wish this too come to pass soon. A friend who’s an expert in the business and investing world has encouraged us to keep our spirit high as this will be over soon, maybe in a month or two, or maybe three to four months from now. What’s important is, in this time of crisis, we don’t lose hope and once this is over, once the economy bounce back, we need to be ready for the recovery. Keep safe.

    • Sorry to hear that the Philippines has locked-down too. Well look at the bright side, we have more time to think and plan for our life, more time to spend with family and perhaps read more and be more knowledgable. 

  8. I do enjoy this article. Although there is a pandemic happening, and no end in sight, can we see it as a turning point? Can we see our life situation in a positive one, at all costs? Good stuff, for I am continuing to find ways to see the good in my current circumstances, be the good example to those around me, and watch for the good to transpire in my life every day! A different way of life right now. A different way of living, to be sure. A “new normal” is here to stay, and the ability to “roll with it” is key. No stress, for it won’t do you, or your health, any good. 

    • Thank you. Yes, we gotta roll with it and sail with it. We will go through this tough period together, and spend more time with ourselves and our family.

  9. Greetings! I really enjoyed reading your post. I was inspired by what you wrote. I think a couple of quotes will best describe how we can look at this COVID19 crisis, and make adjustments with our mindset to move forward.  The first one I will attribute to John Lennon “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”  and the other is from Dr. Wayne Dyer “If you change the way you look at things the things you look at change.”  I know these are very difficult times, and for some the most challenging life experience yet.  Your post really helps us to notice that this unprecedented crisis and life shift is a turning point we can embrace instead of resisting.  Sending everyone an abundance mindset filled with peace, love and a path forward.   

    • Thanks for sharing your favorite quotes too! You are right, we should always look at the bright side of life. This could be our great turning point.

  10. I would love to create a website like yours as the template used is really nice, simple and brings about clarity of the write ups, but then you wrote a brilliant article on a turning point in our lives. this is so inspiring and i would like to share this with some of my friends

  11. I can tell that this is a really good one. I should first commend the input of effort in making this superb website with nice features and also writing an article on a turning point of life. i have followed some of your articles and they have always been source of insight to so many including me.

  12. this is a great and amazing article. i sincerely appreciate your effort creating time to write on such an informative article which has taught me a lot more on A Turning Point of Life. i own a blog and with that I’m now able to earn good amount of money as well now in this times of lock down in my country. thanks for sharing this amazing article

  13. In these moments where everything is full of pessimism, bad news and not encouraging scenarios, it is good to find posts like this that make us think in a positive way, and take what is happening and turn it into an experience that changes our lives for good, and get ahead of this experience, renewed and stronger.

    • Pessimistic will not help in life. Only being optimistic can make us think of ways to solve more challenges. Hang in there!

  14. Yes,this is really a turning point in our lives.a crisis in our life is indeed often a major turning point. It is also time to reflect and re-access what you have and what you want to do.with this pandemic that is forcing us to stay at home and not have social contact, it means we have time to look at other options and opportunities.like learning new skills online it’s gonna help.

  15. I like your positive spin on the Corona Virus!  The way you have written this article reminds me of one of my Tony Robbins favorite quotes…”The power of positive thinking is the ability to generate a feeling of certainty in yourself when nothing in the environment supports you.”  The Corona Virus has definitely shown us that we live in a world of uncertainty.  I live in the US and I can tell you that there is still a lot of positive vibes out there and that people are stepping up to help in this crisis and in some ways I think it is bringing local communities together.

    • Hi Mike, happy to know people around you are stepping out, reaching out to their helping hands! These are what we need when the global is facing the same crisis together. We have to be considerate, mentally strong to support each other. Whatever it takes. All the best and take care!

  16. Hi,
    I love this content. It is absolutely true . It’s very important how an individual looks at the crisis.
    Perception is everything.. Your point of view.
    We should not let the outside circumstances control our mind and the way we think.
    It is okay to be aware of the situation, but dont focus on it.
    In fact we should use this time to reflect, take time for ourself, take time to think what is our next move.
    How can we back ourself when something like this happens again in the future.
    There’s a law of polarity & everything has its opposites.
    up down , in out, left right, hold cold, good bad, ying/yang.

    If there’s something bad about something, THERE 100% definitely have to be something good about it.
    You just have to search for it.

    Thank you for sharing this page.

    • Spot on! Panicking is what most people do especially during this pandemic that we are having. I know it is easier to say than be done, but if we don’t calm down, let our mind rest and reset, no solutions we will find. Take a step back and come back again, more ideas we will have on how to weather through the crisis. Thank you too, Ritchie, for your sharing.
