Got a quick thought to share…A couple of days ago I was at a the Kafe K?benhavn restaurant in the Hyatt in Atlanta. [[OH MY GOODNESS]] they had THE BEST broccoli and cheese soup!!!
Sorry, got a little distracted 🙂
Anyway, as I was enjoying this incredible soup, I overheard the lady at the table next to mine say, “I’m in survival mode right now…”
The guy she was talking to affectionately replies, “Yeah…I know survival mode. I’ve been in survival mode for the last 18 years.”
That was just amazing to me.
I can’t deny, I’ve been there before, but it was never a good feeling. And I could only imagine how it would feel over a time frame of 18 years, how that would seriously impact your psyche.
It made ask, “How do you stay in survival mode
My thought is that survival mode begets more of survival mode, which begets more of survival mode. And when you’re in survival mode, you’ll think about your survival mode and you’ll attract people who are in survival mode so you can talk about your survival mode and share your survival mode stories….and guess what…?
You’ll have more of survival mode.
Ok. So what do you do?
There comes a time when the cycle has to be broken. You have to chose to get out of survival mode…(despite your circumstances)
And from my experience, it can only be broken one of two ways:
1) by you,
2) by someone else.
So, here’s the deal, you can sit around and wait for someone to hand you something (a handout) that could give you the ‘lucky break’ you need to get out of survival mode or you can decide that you are not going to support a survival mode anymore and be in a “success mode.
Think about the things your want, think about the things place you want to be. Imagine yourself doing and being in the place you want to be…not in the place you’re in.
What’s your choice?
