I was reading an article this morning about something called “Recession Depression.” It’s a phenomena where people are becoming so mentally beaten down by all the negative commentary about the economy in the media – on TV, in the newspaper, online, by friends and co-workers – and they are becoming more and more concerned about their own ability to meet their needs in this horrible economic climate. As time progresses, these worries, doubts and anxieties are manifesting in the form of depression.
I was just having a conversation with my sister and my brother-in-law over the weekend about this very subject. They were talking about how terrible the economy was and that they were worried about moving forward with their plan to move to a new home in the next few years because of all the uncertainty. You know, there was a time in my life in the not-so-distant past when I would have applauded their good sense in “playing it safe” and being logical and reasonable in their decision making process; however, those days are long gone!! I asked them why the economic news needed to have any bearing whatsoever on whether they moved to a new home or not. Did they WANT to move? Yes, they said they did. Okay, then make the decision and MOVE!! It’s not so hard!
I am astonished by the vast number of people who allow their decisions to be influenced by outside forces – the media, their friends and family, society. And yet I know that I was absolutely one of those people less than 2 years ago! Then came the day when my whole life changed -when I realized that I had so much more control over what my life could or should be than I EVER imagined possible. That day I unplugged from the media. I stopped asking for the approval of those around me and started acting based on what I WANTED in my life – not what I thought I could get, but what I REALLY wanted with all my heart and soul! That’s when I stopped being an extra in my life’s production and took center stage under the big, bright spotlight. That’s also when life turned on a dime and I started achieving goal after goal and manifesting real heart’s desire stuff right into my life!
Deb and I started quit our secure, full-time jobs at a time when it made little logical sense to do so to pursue our passion of helping people create better lives for themselves. We didn’t decide to do it because it was the logical thing to do – we did it because we WANTED to and we were willing to do whatever it took to make it a success.
So, I ask you… What are you putting off because it doesn’t seem logical or reasonable in light of your current circumstances? Do you WANT it? I mean REALLY WANT IT BAD? If you do, don’t put it off – make the decision to go for it. Once you’ve made the decision you will shift your awareness to a new frequency and the next steps will be shown to you. You don’t have to know how you’re going to make it all happen RIGHT NOW – in fact, you shouldn’t. Don’t be a victim of Recession Depression – keep your eye on your dream and don’t stop moving forward!!
