As millions of Americans celebrate Independence Day 2day, most don’t actually have their independence. They’ve willingly given their independence up a little bit at a time to to a boss, an investor, creditors, or a credit card company.
The industrial revolution convinced land owners (entrepreneurs) to forfeit their independence for the lure of factory work and life in a city. For nearly 100 years it worked out fine. But that system is broken and has been replaced with a new one called a connected economy.
The connected economy is offering you back your independence. You just need to have the courage to leap and grab it. You don’t have to take one big leap, U can take a bunch of little ones.
Jillian Michael says that if you want to change your body then you need to get comfortable being uncomfortable.
That fact is that if you want to change anything at all then you have to be comfortable being uncomfortable. You also need to be comfortable making others uncomfortable. That’s because everyone resits change.
Trying to address poor performance, or behavior in an employee is uncomfortable for you and the employee. But it’s necessary for improvement.
If there’s anything at all you want to change (make better, make different) then you need to get used to saying these words to yourself and others – ‘This is going be uncomfortable’.
Ask yourself this.
What is the most difficult thing I can do 2day?
Now, go do it.
There are lots of things U shouldn’t do just because U can. Yelling at others, exerting authority, taking on more than U should are just a few.
Then there are things U should do just because U can. Being generous, being selfless, being kind, daring 2b different, and taking risk are just a few.
Keep this in mind when you go to see Transformers this weekend.
Apparently the Autobots are not the only things capable of transforming. If you’re willing 2 change your mind about some things then U can be transformed as well.
If U can’t then the Word of God is a lie.
Deal wit it!
