Life And Business Requires You To Adapt
It can be a challenge figuring out business and life.
We are all on a Hero’s Journey as we walk this earth although sometimes it seems as if we are just stumbling along. With ever changing roles and responsibilities in our modern culture here in the United States, transforming ourselves has become a necessity. With technology changes and expectations in a state of flux, it feels like a full-time job just keeping up.
As we change and grow into different roles at work and at home, we have to become a new, upgraded version of ourselves. We literally have to become a new person, leaving behind the older model that can no longer support the latest version of who we are.
I ignored that idea years ago and it turned around and bit me. I accomplished a major goal but didn’t upgrade my skillsets to grow more. I got stuck at that spot and stayed there for years. Eventually I got back on track and the new goals and skills I pursued gave new meaning to my life and what I do each day.
Even if we are conscious about what we are doing, where we are going and how we are going to get there, the external forces of our life and culture can come out of nowhere and blindside us. The complicated issues of men and women and what our natural strengths are is being debated daily across the country.
One thing that can’t be debated is the crisis men are feeling as the roles and responsibilities of men and women are in such a state of flux. Men have not developed the skills of communicating their feelings and sadly, men are 3-4 times more likely to die by suicide than women.
Mental health, be it male or female is something that can’t be overlooked or minimized in this day and age. If you know someone who might be in pain, please reach out to them. If you are in pain, please reach out to someone you can trust. In spite of not wanting to please do reach out anyhow. You are important. You are needed. And if someone knew you were hurting that much, they would want to help you. Reach out.
