In Trouble? Where do I turn? Who do I call?

29 Jul

You know, Charlie, life’s like a deck chair. Some people place their deck chair so they can see where they’re going. Some turn it around to see where they’ve been. Others, Charlie, place their deck chair right in the middle of the action to see what’s going on all around them.” Charlie sighs and says, “I’m just trying to get mine unfolded!” —Charles M. Schulz

Some of us are a lot like Charlie…We’re so busy just dealing with job and life issues that we can forget some of the important things so essential to who we truly are.  Perhaps it’s a distant dream, a sensation that keeps popping up, but it’s been so long since you’ve consciously thought about it that you no longer connect the sensation to the dream. Too many have gotten sidetracked and forgotten their original dream, and are now spending their lives doing derivative work. This memory lapse has become epidemic. Where do I turn? Who do I call?

Power of WHO Tips

Stop immediately and call a ‘WHO’ friend.”  

What’s a “WHO” friend?

  • A “WHO” friend will call a halt to fearful thinking by insisting you stop listening to your own negative self-talk. In the face of those lies they will start speaking truth, the truth about your value and uniqueness, the truth about your accomplishments, and the truth about the value of your dreams and goals.
  • A “Who” friend will intercept you on the dark path you’ve taken and redirect your steps back on to the path of light. They know you, care for you, and will remind you that you have a future and a hope.
  • A “Who” friend knows your true identity and won’t let you forget it. When the “Power of Forgetfulness” tries to roll in—you need your “Who.”
  • It’s interesting to look back and see how the patterns woven into the fabric of our circumstances have led us to where we are now. But if you’re going to fulfill your destiny in life you’re going to need some wise friends and advisers to help you see a vision of your future that, perhaps, you can’t see yourself or you just plain forgot…
