Get off the bottom

If getting things done that matter is the path to a full and rich life, getting stuck in drama may be the hard road to a dead end. We waste a lot of time and energy being in drama and it is one of the biggest productivity killers. Whether we realise it or not, we can go in and out of drama all day. With our thoughts, actions or talk we can be a: persecutor — blaming, gossiping, judging and criticising victim — poor me thinking, rehashing old suffering rescuer — trying to help and please others, often to your own detriment. Diminishers, Non-believers and others who can’t see life’s possibilities, are at the bottom of the True Believers growth ladder and often in drama. Being in drama is a habit that takes practice to break. It starts with being aware of when you are in drama and shifting your focus quickly to move out of drama. When we focus on what’s important we can make progress in a valued direction – up the growth ladder. By staying out of drama we can increase our productivity in a massive way — giving us many more effective hours in our day….

Don’t worry about what others might think. Don’t avoid risk just in case you might fail. Don’t blend in to the world around you. Don’t sit quietly with your desires bottled up. Don’t follow crowds — walk your own path. Don’t hide the real you — show your uniqueness. There’s talk about exposure to risk. I think about it…

TIPPING POINTS TO TRANSFORMATION

A tipping point is defined as an issue or a series of changes that becomes significant enough and crosses a critical point to cause a larger impact or change. Many in their lives will escape these critical points and remain constant without much change. For some though, these tipping points, although often painful, create the greatest positive transformations. I’ve had a few major tipping points in the last 5 years. I’m the kind of girl who has always gone for what she wants — heaps of belief, conviction and commitment — a serial True Believer. There’s so much I am grateful for and like many there’s been some successful failures along the way — lots of valuable life lessons. I’ve been climbing the ladder of success in business for over 25 years and a mum for 20 years. As a working mum there was much hard work but the rewards were there. And for decades I’ve had loads of conviction that provided the stamina to keep going towards different visions. But there have been a few times where my dream would not keep. The reality was that it was time to stop dreaming the dream. It wasn’t going to happen….
