How SAFE Are You Really?
This Week's Simple Tip
At times in life, we turn away from doing things that we might love because of a false sense of security. I worked 30+ years for a large corporation. The first third of the years I wanted to be there, the second third I needed to be there for benefits, and the last third I stayed because I feared making a wrong move in a new venture. In other words, I was staying in a job that I disliked because I was fearful of failing at something I might love. Jim Carrey recounts the same situation in this week's short clip. When I was ultimately downsized, I felt a sense of relief and freedom to go try whatever I wanted. It was then that I realized I had failed myself by staying miserable and covered by a "security blanket" that ultimately disappeared.
This Week's Focus
This week, think about what you might be doing that you really don't want to be doing. Are you ultimately failing yourself like I was? Seriously consider taking the chance to fail at something you LOVE.
