You woke up this morning and you were already contemplating how you were gonna get through your work day. Wondering if you were able to get the things done that you needed to get done. As well as the ability to relax and rest.
If it's a Friday then you're looking at the weekend but those two days are not long enough to recover from the pain that you're feeling from being overworked, underpaid probably, as well as the challenges that you're facing just in living your life. Life is no longer fun. You're trying to do too much. You're not resting, you're not taking care of yourself. You are not living the life that you were designed to live. If any of what I just said has resonated with you, I know how that feels. That describes how my life was prior to May 2009.
Over the next few days I'm going to share about what I refer to as 369 days. It was a year and four days of my life that dramatically changed everything. Later on you'll realize why I say it changed everything for the better. I'll be getting into some really personal and deep things that happened to me. The reason why I'm sharing it is not for pity. I don't want you to feel sorry for myself. That is not the intent. The intent is for you to possibly connect with some of the pain points that I was dealing with. To see if there's any similarities and I trust that there will be. In those situations, this is where we can work together and really figure out how to help you avoid your year of worst case scenarios and get you back on the path of the life that you want and are designed to live.
Over the next day, start thinking about the things that you're struggling with in your work life. Write them down on a post-it note, use Notepad, Evernote, whatever works for you. We're gonna work off of that list.
We'll work through some of the techniques on how to address those things and get you to the point where you're able to again, design the life that you are supposed to live. We're not supposed to work all our lives in a life of misery and pain and worry and anxiety and depression. That's not what we're here for. We're here to make a contribution, do the best that we could do and do the things that only we could do. Because if everyone is working on the things that only they can do, what a wonderful world it will be.
