Do You Feel Stuck?

Do you feel stuck? Are you trying to do everything but you still are stuck at the miserable place instead of where you are your best?

If so, you are not alone.

One of my clients used to be in constant survival.

He could see that he wasn’t doing what he really wanted to do with his life.

He knew he loved to learn. He knew he loved to be in conversations about deep issues where he could distinguish, for himself and another what they were looking at, deeply, precisely and in a way that it altered life. He loved that.

And he loved teaching.

These were the activities he loved to do, and he hoped that people would, at some point, pay for it.

How full is your toolbox? Planning to dig a well when you are thirsty?

One of the common characteristics of people I meet is that they have no skills, no tool box, they are waiting for the right opportunity to do anything. They will start to learn the right skills when they need them, when they’ll know what they want to do. And, of course, it is too late to dig a well when you are thirsty… they languish of thirst…

I am a lot like Bob in the movie “Bob The Butler”.

I am inspired by that movie to do even more skill building to fill my tool box.

I am 70 years old. I have 27 skill sets, 27 ways to make a living. I am an architect. I am a brick mason. I can lay wooden floor, I can lay tiles both on the floor and on the wall. I can hang wallpaper. I am a plumber. etc. etc. etc. One time I counted. I have forgotten more professions than you know how to do.

What did this do to me? What did this do to Bob, the butler?

What’s your context? I just have to look at your life and I can tell. Can you?

The biggest price Positive Thinking junkies pay is this:

You can only have power in any situation if you are looking at what is so!

Why do I call positive thinkers junkies? Simple: they are, just like heroin addicts, unable to deal with the momentary feeling bad about anything, they need an escape from reality, at the expense of their life, their health, their relationships, their money.

When you are a positive thinker, your default context is that reality is just plain should not be the way it is.

For you it’s wrong, for me it is just what’s so… you are powerless, I am powerful.

Finding the silver lining is not available to you, until you see the reality of the situation. For example, yesterday I screwed up something and lost a lot of money. I saw what I did, I appreciated that this wasn’t a good time to lose money, and then I looked for a silver lining: it was a

Overcome Fear of Failure – My first attempt of many to master making short videos

I don’t think I have every written anything about fear of failure. I have been known as fearless… and I knew myself as fearless…

Yesterday I had a rude awakening: I had a new way to look at my activites, a new perspective, and I discovered, to my utter dismay, that many things I know I should do, I know I would benefit from doing, I am not doing. Darn… WTF?!

But once you see it, it is out of the bag.
