THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACTIVELY CHOOSING A PATH VS. PASSIVELY “CHOOSING” A PATH EVEN IF BOTH YIELD THE SAME RESULT

Active involvement in decision-making engenders a sense of ownership.

Active involvement in decision-making stimulates our thinking about the pros and cons.

Active involvement in decision-making helps us to be more accepting of unexpected or negative outcomes.

Active involvement in decision-making builds on our foundational and our operational knowledge.

Even if you come to the same decision, conclusion and result, others are reassured that they are the beneficiaries of the best possible outcomes when there has been active involvement in making these decisions.

IT TAKES A BIT OF STRESS, TENSION OR ANXIETY TO ACCOMPLISH GOALS.

How do we know? 

Often, when patients with generalized anxiety or panic disorder are placed on antidepressants or antianxiety medications, these anxiety symptoms become well relieved. A small percentage of these treated patients will unexpectedly lose their motivation to accomplish tasks; tasks that they looked forward to performing.

This unwanted medication effect is not depression or lack of conscientiousness.

If you stop the offending medication, the pathological anxiety or panic will return, but so will these patients’ motivation and sense of urgency.

STORIES, ANECDOTES, PARABLES AND MYTHS

Are powerful ways to remember and pass on lessons

Highlight lessons which are still applicable generations later

Are more memorable if the lessons are pure fiction or at least part fiction mixed with objective truths

Do not represent certainties or all eventualities, but do represent accumulated wisdoms, which have stood the test of time and span geographies and cultures

WE HAVE A MULTITUDE OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR DO-OVERS

Education, marriage, relationships, health, spirituality, business, finances.

The chances for do-overs stop when we leave this life.

If an objective is important to you, there’s no benefit in stopping trying.

PASSION VS. MAKING MONEY

It is said that if you can combine your passion with making money, you will never have to work a day in your life.

What happens if your passion cannot or does not make money?

What happens if you believe that making money from your passion sullies your passion?

Maybe making money should be more closely linked to an interest to learn and do better, rather than being linked to your passion.
