Assertiveness in your daily life with people will improve as a byproduct of living an assertive life. Be true to yourself and follow your passion. The fears that are in the way of you and your passion are fears you will blast away if you really listen to yourself. Your passion weighs more than your fears of doing it, if you’re listening closely.
I said “there’s not a guy up there”. I shouldn’t impose my beliefs on others, and after all, there might be a guy up there. So here’s a new swing…
If there is a GUY “up there”, he wants you to do what your TRUE self want to do.
“Fred, I’m caught up in a job I hate and if I replace it with something I like to do, I’d be in deep shit”.
This is a difficult area to tap into as a teacher because I don’t know your situation. It might take years to finally make a living doing something you love. Maybe it’ll happen right away. But doing something you like is within reach right now, and there are always ways to make your life more enjoyable. There’s always time in your day where you can plan how to create a better lifestyle.
Casey Neistat, a big Youtuber said, “keep yourself busy”, and you’ll find out what you hate and what you love. If you’re working at a job you hate, at least you have that reference, which is very important information.
You might find out what you hate, and you decide to do the opposite of what you hate. Our traumas make us who we are and WHAT WE WANT. Our driving force is often created out of a wound.
Try new things. It sometimes need courage. You’ll not know until you’ve tried. People who have tried a lot of things will always stumble upon something they love.
In fact, you don’t need ONE passion. Right now I feel passionate about working on this program. But I don’t stand on the bar disk and yell, “the best thing I know is to make social anxiety programs!” You don’t need a marriage. Have affairs. You have lots of ideas. Make some of them happen. Do different things that you, at least, like.
