Okay, so I came upon this quote that stated, “roll up your sleeves, take some risks, and totally go for it…” I was completely transformed and inspired by this quote. The quote made me think in regards to this website and initiative DoSomething.org. I was thinking what does a risk look like and what is “it” when defined. Making list or going through list about “Things to Do” is imperative. This can even mean finding out about nightlife, cafes, and other happenings and events that are going on in your city, town, state and even nationwide. This might be when you are not realizing that there is a “we” that is on your side!
I’m going to take a risk here and mention something that I want to delve into in my lifestyle coaching. It is the goal to start with the absolute “No’s” and the impact they have had on your life. As in No I didn’t realize everyone cannot read, No I did not realize that people buy products when they cannot read or count, No I cannot always tell when someone does not even have a vocabulary or understand that is possible. Those deep down no’s that make some of parts of your life really need a barb wired fence because you would walk into a zoo and step into the cage. I am also thinking about the ways sometimes our feelings get hurt or our work interrupted or intercepted. This happens when “life hecklers” make comments that are the equivalent of saying “remember all those times you got tackled at football practice.” or “remember when that guy blocked your shot during a scrimmage?” More importantly when the life heckler is doing this while you are in the draft, playoffs, being named MVP and or wearing a championship ring. People who are in the middle of trying to tell everyone about the way you used to wear smelly socks while you are signing your multi-billion dollar deal that includes a sneaker with your name on it or something. I would suggest people write their equivalents and think of ways to avoid the mistake of being impacted improperly or not having the courage or smart assness to say “yes, I do remember when I had smelly socks.” You can even give them a pair from the money you just earned and a sweat suit and the sneaker with your name on it. There is something worth noting about the power a simple Yes can have on regulating emotions, including withdrawing behavior and fear coping mechanisms. There is also some work that needs to be tightened up that has to do with the errors of people who have served as teachers and professionals in your life. One of my missions is to help professionals see when their students or constituents are apart of a generation that will put them in danger of losing thier job for normal errors and delays. Especially the mediated generation. They often can care less or have put of something they should be doing and have created time to start arguments with people they should be quiet and revere. #CoffeeBreakandIgnore
