When you consider where you and your options for a great life are at, how long do think you have to get things in order? In other words, how long before you move forward with looking at your life as the thing you manage and not just your career, your money or your spiritual?
You wouldn't need to ask many people to find out that the majority feels out of balance. Many have made a deal with themselves to pick and choose what they will pay attention to. A game of pretend where you believe that ignoring will make everything okay. A warning may have been given, from a doctor or counselor, that was designed to shake the slumber. But fear or insecurity continues its dominance.
This all makes sense in so many ways. Where do you go? Who do you turn to? What's the right pathway back or out?
For better or worse we have a trust issue running through our modern day world. It almost feels like you need the CIA to find out who really cares-in business and out. I can't solve this, but I can be a source of consistent truth and encouragement. My contribution to you and your journey. The bottom line is you need help in making sense of your whole life. Any successful life warrior I've ever met always had help. It is this help that is truly a difference-maker. A way to a breakthrough.
But what if you look away? What if you tell yourself that it's too big of a mountain to change? What if you believe the promises of your employer? I would ask that you consider remembering the following:
All of the disease, dysfunction, stress, and unhappiness would not be such a big deal if ignoring your whole life was a viable solution. Employers wouldn't still be grappling with engagement and performance if relying on half-a-person to do the work that only a full person could do, was a viable solution.
