IF YOU DONT TAKE A CALCULATED RISK - YOU WILL ALWAYS WORK FOR SOMEONE WHO DOES...
* You have achieved success in your life - yet wonder at an emptiness inside of you.
* You are accountable, dependable and responsible. Predictable & stable - yet feel that the color has slowly drained out of your life.
* You are everybody's 'Go-To' person - and that has begun to sap at your energy.
* You were the 80's BAG BAITCH. You know what I am talking about - the responsible person left guarding the handbag with everyone's car keys in at the Club - whilst everybody else partied like rock stars.
(YES - WE DROVE HOME IN THE 80'S )
If any of the above sounds familiar - then this story is for you:
A man travels from the West to India to receive the Blessings of a Teacher who has attained the status of GURUJI - Divine light.
He is a much sought after & world-renowned - The Guru - not so much the traveler :) The traveler guy is probably self-employed too.
The traveler sacrificed much to reach the Ashram and endured even more discomfort & hardship once there. (Legend has it he was the principle lavatory monitor for the duration of his stay). There was a long, long, long line of people, who, just like him, had come in search of the counsel and guidance of this Holy Man.
Several moons later, he reaches the front and is summoned forward.
The Guru, upon hearing the traveler's lament and tales of burden and suffering in this lifetime, extends a hand, places it gently on the burdened man's shoulder and says:
'Lighten up a**hole". Live a little'
I would have demanded a refund but there you go. Words to live by.
If you have not stepped out of your comfort zone in a while - it is time.
It is time to take a calculated risk and explore other opportunities, allowing you to lighten up, breathe, and plan your exit strategy from burden & excess stress.
