In a different post someone asked if they should be happy to see their income reduced because of how things were set up in the past, changes in the industry and factors out of their control.
DON’T BE HAPPY. BE OUTRAGED.
Making less money impacts one’s livelihood and ability to provide for one’s family.
The threat of that happening is exasperating.
The reality of it occurring is infuriating.
Outrage is well justified.
TURNING THE FIRES OF ANGER INTO ROCKET FUEL FOR CHANGE
Let yourself feel the rage.
More often than not, it is the fire under our feet that gets us moving.
It is our infuriation that motivates us.
PISSED OF AT THE PAST
Don’t like how things were set up in the past? Makes sense. The end results failed.
So… set them up differently now.
Use your outrage to launch your imagination, time, resources, relationships, drive and perseverance to create new paradigms that benefit you and others.
CRINGING OVER CHANGE
Don’t like changes in the industry? If they don’t benefit you or others you care about why wouldn’t you loath them?
Use your anger towards changes to get laser in understanding them. Take off the rear view mirror of the past and focus on the horizon to where things are heading. Then use your creativity and determination to navigate those changes and drive you to where you want to be heading.
OUT OF CONTROL OUTRAGE
Don’t like factors out of your control? Then get really angry about it.
Then take control yourself. Evolution is inevitable. Electing to see oneself as the victim or victor is what we actually have control over.
Recognize what is and isn’t in your control and embrace and run with the massive inventory of attitudes, approaches, tools and resources within your control
GET ANGRY. AND DON’T STAY STUCK THERE.
A rocket ship needs a massive explosion to launch itself out of Earth’s gravitational pull. That fury is essential at blastoff.
And then the initial explosion ends. It doesn’t eventual burn up the ship.
LISTEN TO ELSA
As the great poet of our time so memorably said, “LET IT GO.”
While outrage can be a great initial motivator, if indulged for too long, it can also engulf and consume us.
The art is in transitioning from rage to reason. The finesse is not causing damage to ourselves and others via our angry feelings. The brilliance is in acknowledging our hurt, letting go, and moving on towards positive outcomes.
GETTING LIVID IS A WONDERFUL MOTIVATOR WHEN USED WISELY.
