The Positive Responses – A Call To Action

It’s time folks. This whole enchilada is about to run off the rails. You know it, I know it, and especially “they” know it. The only people who don’t know this are so distracted by life’s insignificant details, and so hopelessly incurious, that they won’t have any clue until their own lives fall apart.

These people will experience the future as if they were blindfolded participants at a free-for-all boxing match. In other words

Until and unless we admit we have a problem, there will be no hope of repair or recovery. It doesn’t matter what the problem is – alcoholism, addiction, infidelity, lying, cheating, stealing – recovery begins by admitting that a problem exists.

Which means we need to talk about betrayal and the many ways we are being betrayed, and are even betraying ourselves. It won’t be an easy conversation to hold, but it’s entirely necessary.

The alternative is the equivalent of an Alcoholic Anonymous meeting that has decided to eliminate 11 of the steps and just go with one step; “Hey, in this meeting we just pretend nothing’s wrong and we keep on drinking.” Sadly, this exact one-step program is oversubscribed in many communities.

Until and unless that happens, you, we, all of us need to be prepared for more, not less, violence. We should expect more business-as-usual decisions not fewer. We should anticipate more distressed people doing increasingly desperate things, such as checking out via drug use and other addictive behaviors.

You may have overlooked or ignored betrayals - small or large - in your personal life that will now exert themselves to the front of your mind. You may lash out at your betrayers, be they at work, These will take over and shape your destiny, so our advice is that you should get out in front of them.

You will need additional tools to clear these out, manage them, and work with whatever other emotional stressors in your life so you can continue to move forward, grow, develop and have a happy and full life.

If you are ready to learn how to improve and strengthen your emotional capital then...
