5 Power of “Who” Tips/When Your World Gets Turned Upside Down.

7 May

You’re headed in the right direction, fully confident that everything is going fine when, suddenly and without warning, your world gets turned upside down. It can feel like walking off the edge of a cliff in the dark. One moment you’re on solid ground. Next, you feel like you’re free-falling upside down. Your heart is in your stomach. Instinctively, your arms reach out, flailing around for anything you can grasp that will stop your fall.  

Are you or one of your friends in a situation like this? Because what you do next is critical. Over the years I have found that gifted individuals who temporarily lose their confidence can do some really stupid things. A lifestyle that was once healthy, vibrant, and beneficial can turn toxic when our life circumstances change significantly.

5 Power of WHO Tips

  1. BEWARE of grabbing onto the first thing that comes along. Instead, go ahead and let yourself hit rock bottom! What you’ll find is that-You’re Ok.  You survived!  We all make mistakes and experience setbacks. How you respond to these bumps in the road is everything! 
  2. You Need a “Time-Out!” Railroad crossings urge you to “stop, look, and listen” before you cross the tracks. But do people heed this admonition? A lot don’t. The result is a train wreck. As you begin to think once again about pursuing your dreams and goals, you’re going to need to give yourself a “time-out.” Soul searching is a solitary exercise. If you don’t take this seriously you will, more than likely, settle for just another counterfeit.
  3. Do Not Superimpose an old agenda onto a whole new set of circumstances. It never works. It’s time for a New Plan! Because-If you want something you’ve never had-You’re going to have to do some things you’ve never done!
  4. Reach Out/Ask for Help!  All it takes is one great friend to share some compassion, encouragement, direction & insight that will help you get you back on track. But this will only happen if you’re humble and wise enough to ask, listen, and then let those who are near to you–Help You.
  5. Turn off the Self-Talk!  Most people listen to themselves instead of talk to themselves. When self-defeating thoughts slither their way into your mind, and they will try, don’t let them go unchallenged! So, when you find your thoughts wandering around in the dark trying to get you afraid and depressed, turn on the light! See yourself succeeding and enjoying living your dream.
