And most likely will gain me a few more “unsubscribes”.
When I have a down day, which I usually do on Wednesday, (weird common denominator in my life), I usually come roaring back with a very confident day.
I believe being “consistent” and “content” are two over used words.
There is a reason people line up for hours and pay lots of money to ride roller coasters.
The valley of the ride makes the hill even more exhilarating.
By the way, the definition for “exhilarating” is, “making one feel very happy, animated, or elated, thrilling.”
Yeah, “consistent”, and “content”, works for a spouse who is a good provider and day in and day out over the course of fifty years they do the same thing consistently and are probably quite content.
It may even work for an employer and / or employee who makes widgets day in and day out.
Give me some up and down on the ride.
Give me some pain with the pleasure.
Surround me with non-content people.
Consistent and contented people remain where they are for long periods of time because few things drive them forward, upward or out of their box.
Put your “consistent” self on the shelf for a day or so, and do something different, so out of the norm that it will throw people off.
I have been taught throughout my life to be “content in all things”.
I hate to disagree with this teaching as interpreted and taught by mere men.
However, I must…
The Book does say, “Wherever you are, be content.”
The Book does not say, “Now stay there.”
I want to be content just long enough to realize that this is not where I wish to be for another second.
Be consistent in this, your confidence.
Confidence is contagious.
Be the person that says:
“You are crazy not to hire me.”
“You are out of your mind not to love me.”
“You have stepped outside of your brain to consider any other option of which I am not a part of.”
You have to take the same approach that Toby Keith takes in the following video, “How Do You Like Me Now”.
Be confident in everything.
Be content in nothing.
Pursue the reason you were born and given life.
To live it.
