No one likes the pit. I know I didn't. However ... the pit is a great thing. Really it is.
You finally come to the place where you realize you need help, must ask for it and receive it. It's desperation. You're fully drowning and need a lifeline or you can't continue. That is a wonderful place to be.
YOU took yourself to a place of failure. Linking up with the wrong crowd - naturally and spiritually - contributed to your downfall, but it was your decisions that put the spade into the ground and pulled the dirt up and out of the hole every time. I know from firsthand experience so no ... I am not being harsh. I'm telling you the truth and the truth sets you free. I'm a witness.
The pit is the perfect place for those in a cycle of failure because you have to look up to see the light of day. It's the revelation that you're so low that the next stop for you is looking like death - and you may not come back from that. It's being at the end of yourself and that's your first marker on the path to deliverance.
Cycles of failure are hard to get out of until you admit you need help. They're like being in a whirlwind going around and around, with everything up in the air and you having no idea when it'll all come crashing down.
How do you know when you're in a cycle of failure? Look back over your life in chunks of three, six, nine and 12 months to identify areas of decrease. If one area shows up in two or more periods, it's an indicator that your current process is ineffective. Another way is to look at your goals. If you're consistently not meeting your daily, weekly and monthly goals something needs to change. Successful individuals and organizations regularly monitor their productivity. If you incorporate this process into your life or business, you'll begin to experience an upswing.
If you're at the end of yourself and are in the pit or have identified cycles of failure that you need to overcome, schedule a call or book a session today. I have strategies that will put you on track to living your destiny.
I've been posting some good stuff on my Facebook page recently. Here's an example:
WISDOM: If you're not living up to your full potential you may find yourself going through a midlife crisis halfway through your marriage and think it's the problem. When you don't live your purpose everything else in your life suffers. #zww
This is the truth. I'm a people watcher, as many of us are, and I see couples going through the motions with no connection to each other and no plan to fix it because one or both are dry inside from not expressing who they really are. NOTE: I'm speaking of life purpose not negative deviations of any sort. It's going to be difficult for you to flourish in a relationship if you've bought into the 9 to 5, I have to be that go to work and come home spouse who's safe and predictable and does what everyone else does.
This message isn't for everyone, of course. I've actually heard people say they just want to be average so I'm not speaking to you folks. I tried that life and it almost killed me. I'm not average. I guess I never have been because I get bored after I master many things and have to learn something new or I get cranky.
Constant growth and progress is an inherent characteristic but I believe most people don't go as far as possible because their mindset on what progress constitutes is severely limited. For example, when I was trying to be average I thought a normal progression of growth in public education was the path I took - from classroom teacher, to grade-level rep, to school rep. and mentor of teachers. I received these promotions in four years and many people who'd been teachers for decades often asked me if I was "old enough" to be an Instructional Coach because they hadn't achieved that promotion after years of service. So, looking back at that fast track I guess I wasn't even average when my mindset was limited to a safe life and career. That life backfired on me anyway because when you rise above a crowd of average folks, some of them get ugly and they want to destroy you in the spirit of jealousy.
I'm special because I'm an individual and we're all special. On the other hand I'm not special because every one us has the potential to live their dreams, passions and purpose. People look at me, are attracted to me (professionally) and hire me because I'm doing what they desire to do. I'm constantly growing, learning, producing, experimenting with new arenas and have a great amount of freedom in my life. I seem special and different because there are so many who have desires in their hearts but are afraid to do anything risky. It's sad.
Life is a risk. Love is a risk. Living your passion is a risk. But the rewards that come are multiplied over and above what an average existence will produce over any amount of time. I'm a witness.
