The Cornerstone of Your Company is YOU. Why balance is critical.
This article is from my upcoming book "The Cloudy Screen." A Depressed Visionary's Leap From Survival To Focus, and From Focus to Life Without Limits.
What you are about to read is not your “everyday bullet point” outline of all the things you’ve always heard about how to create a thriving company or improve yourself as an executive, spouse or student. I’m going to show you the number one thing that is overlooked and serves as a subconscious barrier to functional, orderly and even easy accomplishments.
But first, I asked myself the question, “Since your teaching about BALANCE, how will your highly feeling, emotional personality reach both the stay-at-home spouse and the strong thinking-oriented Fortune 500 CEO. In meditation, I heard the answer….by remembering the company CEO’s diaphragm lowers and raises to allow air in and out, just like all the other fortunate people. No one is exempt from emotion at the core. The CEO will read this, the CEO will get this.
Now, before I say what the barrier is, I will describe some of the ways it leaks out of us, like puss leaks from a poorly treated wound. It’s the reason we procrastinate. It’s the fuel for the engine that drives us away from responsibilities. It’s the ink from the disempowering message written in our subconscious six-year-old selves. IT IS IT’S OWN PERSON, demanding our acknowledgement, crying out for our compassion, and banging on the cell of our self-created prison. It is UNRESOLVED GRIEF.
Yes. I’m on the leading edge too… learning not to tell the old story or focus on what I do not want. But let me tell you the most important thing I’ve ever said to anyone. You may only need to give it 10 seconds of your time, but if you’re feeling it, and not acknowledging it, PAIN will wreak havoc in your life, company, marriage, children, careers, body and future. It is responsible for all of the stages of grief before acceptance.
The pain of losing something or someone held dearly, the psychological assault of knowing your identity to be one way a second ago, and completely different in this moment, the hurt of believing you can belong and finding out that door won’t open as easily as you had hoped, can be resolved with simple steps and most importantly, when given permission to express its self and move along in this journey that we call existence.
Today, right now, you have permission to balance your emotional body by viewing the tears, screams, aggression, anger and distrust as a part of your process, rather than something that has to be drank away, smoked away, sexed away, lied about, avoided and pushed aside. Truth is, there is no way around it. Just say it…”I’m hurting… This hurts…. I’m scared….I don’t know…." And be ok with it. You are real, you are not stuck, you’re never alone. When the student is ready……
