It's very trendy to think positively…
Ironically, there haven't been more unhappy people around since this has become the new hype. Since people have watched the movie called the "Secret" and started living life based on forced positive thinking. It's a big mess.
This is the second year, that I went back to my school in my hometown in Transylvania, and joined a couple of philosophy classes with a question I stumbled upon in many books and articles:
IF YOU COULD BE ANYTHING IN LIFE, WHAT WOULD YOU BE, AND WHY THAT?
Have you ever felt furious when someone was trying to help you by telling you: "calm down", "don't be angry" ?
Have you ever tried meditation, and then still felt like smacking people in the face right after it was over? :)
Did you ever feel like screaming when you are desperate and your loved ones are telling you that "time will heal" and they advise you to "let it go" ... not to mention then supposedly comforting "everything is going to be ok"?
Have you ever wondered why this doesn't really work?
The sky is not the limit.
Our perspective is.
This article is inspired by a coaching session I had today.
My coachee contacted me through my website, because a work related situation had reached a point, where he was left with nothing, than to ask for advice.
Have you ever been in a situation, which you couldn't solve by yourself and you were left with nothing more than to ask for help, but you did that with a bitter taste, because the voice in your head was telling you, that you are not enough to solve this problem?
