Hating Where You Are and What You’re Doing

It’s so easy to bitch and  complain.  In fact, the more time you complain means there is so much less is going on in your life.

Sure, these are tough times.  It’s all too easy to go along with the herd mentality of negativity.  Been there, done that.

Recently I read a Gallup survey pointing out that most Americans hate their jobs; even jobs that offer fabulous perks.

What works is collaboration.  Collaboration or the lack of it can be measured by the amount of time spent online.  Too much interface, not enough face-to-face. And, that means no real counter feedback.  Life is as we see it or want it to be with no place for opposing views.

Not too long ago, I interviewed Mark Victor Hansen.  I asked him how he deals with negativity.  He told me that at that moment, he was going through one of the roughest times in his life.  So, I asked him, how are you handling it?  He said I’m dealing with it by not making it the focal point of his life.  In other words, he was practicing what he preaches.

We are the masters of our own universe.  It’s not that we can’t or don’t ask for help, but it’s up to us to either languish in despair(and misery loves company) or take the time to digest assistance given and move on.

Who I Am, What I Do

My site is still under construction.  Come to think of it, my life is still under construction.  It’s never set.  This applies to all of us.  And, just  when you think you’ve got everything just right, life has a way of slapping us silly; forcing us to move our gluteus maximus.

Life is Change.  Whether we like it or not, we are constantly making adjustments.  If we can’t define who we are and what we do, then we are left to the capriciousness of fate, and that can be a bitch.

Author/Speaker Jim Rohn once said:  ”If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan.  And, guess what they have planned for you?  Not much.”

Again, our lives are under constant construction.  But, we still need some root, some baseline that acts as our standard of value(s).

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been trying to define exactly who I am, what I do in relation to what I have been doing for years. In the process, I realized it’s much easier defining what I’m NOT and DON’T want to be than discovering and expressing simply, precisely and positively my reason for being, my raison d’etre.

It is so easy succumbing to the Sirens of Noise, Distraction and Resistance which equal Scattered Potential and a lot of Stress. Once cleared, I realized who I am and have been for a long time.

I am a Pathfinder, a Catalyst.  I help others discover their strength(s) and assist in developing a new or revised blueprint for a new beginning.  It’s called Paizogenics.

Specifically, I assist the age 50 Plus Individual and groups overcome obstacles, challenges and distractions in their lives so they can achieve, sustain and reclaim Success Again.

As a Speaker, Author and Trainer, It’s Who I Am and What I Do.
