I am not sure about you, but I feel we’re coming to a point, where many of us are wondering if we will have a future at all.
OK, don’t sound the alarm, I am an eternal optimist, but some of us are not.
Politically it’s crunch time – in the States, in the People’s Republic, in Europe, in Russia, in the Middle East and in North Korea; we can throw up the cards with each nation labelled on them, and see what happens when they land; but that of course means we are in the lap of the so called Gods. We can do something about it of course and not leave it to those in power to alter the course of our future.
Yes, our earth’s global future from which we are intrinsically hardwired to! That’s enough of the politics for now, but you get my drift and hopefully heed my call.
On to another matter, with the dark shadow lurking theme…
I will always judge people as I find them, I don’t care whether they’re women, men, black white, old, young, tall, short, fat or thin, I embrace all religions, my religion is pretty much agape love.
In my work, I help C-Suite professionals to make lasting progress in their careers.
When I consult, most are open, engaging and will show warm gratitude, while a handful will be so incredibly judgmental and stubborn; and when I am finished not a word of thanks is uttered, even though I have more knowledge and expertise than they do and have happily shoved them a little further along their career path.
So what makes the latter different from the former? It is difficult to define, but I sense and or know that some of these C-Suite professionals, don’t like or are unwilling to accept direction, perhaps due to their upbringing, perhaps recent experiences, perhaps just being covertly judgmental or have an inherent bad attitude. I sometimes wonder what goes on behind their closed doors at home.
Look, people are inclined to form irrational and emotional judgments, without getting the facts, and most as I have said before, will make emotional decisions, and you know what, emotional decisions are usually irrational, whether it is a word or an action, it will usually derive a negative outcome.
I have met tens of thousands of people across the decades from all over the world, and have always set out to leave a positive and memorable impression of who I am. Yet, there are those for whatever reason, fail to reciprocate my positive engaging energy; now that’s their dark shadow lurking deep in their higher being; we all have this damaging affliction.
The Pope recently remarked that the Lords Prayer should be altered, as the words ‘lead us not into temptation’ should be that of Satan. Well as we’ve all apparently been made in Gods own image, and as all of us have this dark shadow lurking, I feel that this ‘lead us not into temptation’, words are quite apt. Forgive me if I have caused offence.
We’re all fallible, or perhaps a better phrase is lightly damned – some more than others of course; and yet there are those of us who try to convey that we’re more perfect than others and make every attempt to hold other people down or make them feel inferior in some way. Anyone come to mind?!?!
Not nice at all.
So let’s use the ultimate POWER OF CHOICE!
So as we approach the Yuletide festivities, let’s reach out to others, smile, share some positivism; we’re all going through a challenging and unclear period in our lives, not least the burgeoning upcoming generation of youngsters.
Most of all, if you know someone good, don’t ever make emotional decisions and run the risk of losing them. All good people are precious, remember that!!
If you celebrate Christ’s Mass, love to you and yours, and don’t get too drunk or eat too much… OK, I am no Ebenezer Scrooge… Live n Love!
