2 / 2 | Making The Change | Picking Up On Pieces

 

'I couldn’t even fall back on a traumatic childhood as the deep-seated reason for my discord and the seemingly constant set backs in my work and personal life.'

Making The Change

We yearn for simplification, yet we are in ourselves very complex creatures by default. We pray for a magic pill that will solve all of our problems and get us back on track living the life we want on our terms.

Despite my years of experience, the responsibility I’d taken for my life outcomes, no matter how negative they were and the fact I’d tried hard to be the master of my destiny by starting businesses I wanted to I’ve waited and hoped for one too. It never came.

The first and persistent problem we hit in the Endless Search is that of course, we are actually all very different despite what the spiritual, business or marketing gurus might lead us to believe.

Now I realise there is no one-size fits all cure-all that will release us from this right-of-passage jail time anxiety inducing anguish. I’ve wasted years looking for an escape from this perpetual prison sentence.

'...there has always been something I couldn’t quite solve. This persistent, recurring issue was no ordinary common or garden problem.'

Ending The Search

If you’re anything like me, you’ve read countless books on everything from personal development and self-help, through spirituality and psychology to business and marketing searching for ways to solve your life and work problems. 

With over twenty years of business experience and forty years of life lessons to draw from I found I could solve all kinds of problems and achieve a level of success in the process.

But, there has always been something I couldn’t solve. This persistent, recurring issue was no ordinary common or garden problem. Until recently I could never quite put my finger on it. As far as being able to put my mind to unearthing it so I could break free from it’s annoyingly elusive and persistent hold over me, that’s a different matter entirely.

Sure, indulging in the Endless Search via these books, courses, seminars and workshops can be useful and empowering to some degree. Employing a process of elimination is a proven way to bottom out many a situation to reveal the core underlying causes of the undesirable effects they create in our lives.

First Flow | In The Creative Loop

 

'This vital component of the Creative Loop isn’t always apparent...'

First Flow

Whether you’re overly absorbed in or regularly distracted by the High Definition Life or not we would all feel better if we were more creative in our life, work and relationships. When I talk about being creative I’m not just referring to the obvious forms of creativity like the arts, crafts or design professions, inventing a new product, or starting and building a business.

I’m also referring to being more creative in how we approach situations, events and relationships in our personal life and work life. It doesn’t matter if these are big things or little things, creative thinking not just creative doing permeates all of our lives to varying degrees depending on what we’re dealing with. Implementing change is inherently creative.
