READ THIS I DARE YOU!
READ THIS I DARE YOU! REALLY??? YOU ARE TOO STRESSED AND BUSY TO TAKE THE TIME?
Oh and your are oh sooo unhappy too I'll just bet! Good lord, bring on the drama!
This weekend I was having more than one discussion, (4 times in fact, not to mention the conversations I overheard), with people sitting in their drama telling me how stressed they were, how stressful their jobs are, how stressed their boss makes them and how "evil" their jobs are, how stressed they are at home and how busy they are with life with no time for anything fun, interesting or meaningful anymore.
Well I had one word for them: BULLSHIT!
If any of this sounds familiar, turn on some music, dance naked in your living room, go for a walk and think about your life. You need a damn shift. And, I for one would love to see it sooner than later!
I mean really?
Most of you are not landing planes on snowy, stormy runways with 400 people in tow. Most of you are not micro surgeon's with a life in their hands and the need for calm steadiness. You're not likely a firefighter putting your life in harms way in the service of others on every call. I'm not saying there is not stress, I'm saying you need a new label maker.
What is it you do?
Are you in one of these horrifically stressful careers or lifestyles? A management consultant, mother, taxi driver, designer, coach, retailer, son, accountant, public speaker, daughter or college student? Perhaps you work for a bank, you climb mountains, write books, you run a restaurant, plan weddings, you're a blogger or some other kind of new fangled "expert", maybe you grow grapes, or aspire to other horribly stressful careers or lives. What's your stressful horrible reality? I really want to hear all about how bad it is and who forced you into it.
Most people who complained about being unemployed are now complaining about their stressful "employment". How busy their lives are so that now instead of sitting in a gutter they are now to busy to simply look up at someone else and show some compassion and lend an ear. They hate what they do, they want more, different, bigger, better. But they are too stressed and unhappy to shift it.
I'm worn our listening to all this. More worn out writing about it.
But you have an option:
Go lay on your bed, take a nap, and crawl out the other side of your bed, 90 minutes from now and change all of it! It's that easy and your'll be rested to make a powerful shift!
"90 MINUTES FROM SHIT TO SHIFT!"
And that's all it takes! Free will, choices and a passionate purpose. You make every single choice in your life, who you sleep with, who you love, who you hate, who you work for, where you live, and who you hurt! If you are sick you choose to get well, fight it or die trying on your terms, if you are unhappy you made that choice, unemployed you have options, miserable at home? Well my friend it's your home. Shift it! We all have the same ability to choose, and guess what? You are surrounded by equally passionate people who just need the same nap every single day!
Now you can say this is a load of crap, and how it's just not that easy. We'll I'll call you to the mat on that one, because it is JUST that easy! Been there, done that and I choose the shift! So before you crap all over this idea as well, give it a try, you are already moaning about your life over your martini and your misery!
SEEMS TO ME WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE, EXCEPT ANOTHER BIG PILE OF USELESS NEGATIVE DRAMA!
