World Mental Health Day 2020 - The 4-step formula to thrive in the prevalent Economic Crisis

Eight months ago, when we first heard of Covid-19, we didn’t pay much attention. The lockdowns, the social distancing shoutouts, and the media coverage were good as information but not of much use, then. And now, when a lot of us have a relative admitted for the dreaded disease or a friend who is isolating with the fear of being infected, Covid has come too close to not care.

To that kid, the coach never had to say a word. Cos, that kid was the stuff exceptional winners are made of. Winning comes to everyone, mostly. But very few get the hallmar...
