Maintaining Your Connections : Part 4
Connections, relationships with the people around us, are some of our greatest privileges…and also, if we let them, they can become our greatest worries.
Worrying is like a rocking-chair, though. It’s fun to ride, but you never get anywhere.
Here’s the 4th Rule to scrape worry from the bottom of your shoe:
Don’t play with the “Connections” between others, EVEN if asked. It’s not worth it.
Now this last might sound strange coming from me, a Life Coach.
However, as I always say, it is not me changing a person’s life or any part of it/them. It is my client who makes the changes. I only help show people the tools, and when asked I help anchor him or her to stated principles while he or she designs the limitless & unbelievable work of art called simply, “Life”.
So, I follow these rules too. Practice what thy preach as they say.
And I suggest you do as you best see fit.
I won’t step in-between the connection you have with life, it is only my aim to help you develop that relationship to levels you never thought possible.
To affect change in you, so that one day the change you affect in the world will impact me positively.
To ignore the red & blue pills in life, and instead indicate take the third pill unseen.
That is not to say that there is no room or purpose to the skills we have already learned. In complete contrast, I am saying to use all you know and simply add more everyday with the purpose of creating something new.
And once, we get used to this, we will do it for the rest of our lives without turmoil or terror.
We will facilitate the best Connections within ourselves & without.
The best & most successful of us – regardless of what that means – do neither lead, follow or get out of the way.
They do them all simultaneously.
And finding a balance or equilibrium within ourselves is not only a very personal process with vast external consequences – positive & negative – but is a key step to graduating from capable to master.
