I saw this somewhere on Facebook a year ago I think, and shared it and others shared it, I added my own spin to it, below. Here’s an example, I thought my boss at the time was responsible for my promotion. So I gave that power away. I took it back when I TOOK personal responsibility for my own learning, started a psychology course, developing my own skills, asking for a regular professional appraisal. Sometimes no one tells you these things dont laugh, neither did you know that, but now you know. One of my clients said to me the other day as I discussed with her some experiences, she said, which I humbly accepted ‘nothing is ever wasted on you right’? It was not always easy it never is, I had times I wondered what happened where is my support network, I feel alone, how did this happen and why this why that. Until I surrendered to discover MY LIFE VISION.
Here’s the fun part, if you take personal responsibility for promotion in life not just your career but the sum total of your life, you can actually fire your boss? Walk away from relationships that go nowhere, Take your business elsewhere, the list is endless.
In all my writing, when I use the word relationships I refer to all kinds, with your friends, employer, colleagues, business associates,clients, customers, the person you cant stand at the post office or supermarket, your bank manager yes find out how to tackle debt, find out how to avoid charges, how to control your financial CV, I include all kinds. I hope this will encourage you sure did for me then even now.
In a potential relationship, you can be chosen or you can CHOOSE. Big difference. Now most of us have not been taught to observe ‘Fruit( how a person speaks of others his/her past and how he/she treats you’….So if we are easily won by flattery, guess who inspires the charmer…a charmer refers to snake behaviour. No one tells you these things at the supermarket, at the school run, and its not to say we should not accept compliments if they are sincere yes accept, but flattery especially for people who understand their gifts and talents, can be slippery. Flattery has a double tongue elevates you today and cuts you down tomorrow. Where there is self elevation its easy to miss flattery. Today you are the best thing since sliced bread, tomorrow its who are you, ? people change their needs and you can be dispensable if you give your personal power away (This stuff should be in my book am giving it away for free for now………LOL)
May you find courage and wisdom to cancel that date tonight/this weekend, because ‘way better’ is on the way…….ouch Meg, why you gotta get in my business??? If he cannot even afford flowers, what can he actually afford, YOU??? Better still even if he buys the flowers why not give it time to find out if this is for real or you are being taken on a merry go round, it looks like fun at first but hey where are we actually going? Just because it looks like a ‘titanic’(anything of epic advertising to you, the one who dazzles you, the suggestions of the power you will have if you take or eat that) does not mean it cannot sink? A beautiful life is walking by faith not by sight, listening to the voice within and not depending on natural sight. Thanks for reading this far, am working on shorter posts that keep you inspired and energized to do something NOW.
