Earlier this year I mentioned that this was going to be my year of power. And it is. It's been pretty amazing so far. But not only is it MY year of power, it's also yours as well...IF you want it to be, that is.
Sometime late last year I decided to no longer be a victim as a usable doormat to people anymore. And I decided to stand up in every situation I felt was wrong or wasn't working for me. Of course, this makes me a lonely person with very few people in my life but that only means all the loser deadbeats are now gone. When I'm ready, I'll have to start lining myself up with some awesome people. Right now I'm on a mission to do bigger and better things business-wise.
So...what was my latest conquest of power?
This past week has had a couple of "closures" on some lingering issues that are finally over. One was my family court hearing where I finally financially nailed my daughter's father to the wall after meticulously playing this legal chess game with him for the past 6 years. Guess I'm better at chess than he is. Some of us realize that a war includes many, many battles while others think the first battle is the whole war. The smart ones focus on each battle one at a time. The dumb ones focus on just the first one or two then lose the rest because they aren't in it for the long haul or they quickly run out of steam. So...I won. He lost. It happened exactly how I planned, just took longer than expected. And there you go.
The second thing...I can't really talk about. It's too personal. But, needless to say, I wasn't going to be played for a fool while letting the player get away with it as he trotted off into the sunset to go play some other sucker. So, by the time you're reading this, his entire life is beginning to fall apart at the seams. Don't feel bad for him. He freaking deserves it. Maybe he'll think better next time before screwing over somebody who won't put up with it. (And no, you don't know who this is so don't make assumptions about it.)
With that said, I have this feeling of great strength now that I finally closed a chapter in my book of life and I'm starting to begin to write a new one this week. When something comes to completion, it only opens up a new road with new exciting beginnings because the old is flushed away. Maybe this is what you're experiencing right now. At least I hope so. Otherwise maybe you're feeling stuck or perhaps on the wrong road in life. And that is always a sucky place to be.
So, how to do you gain your power back? How do you take the bull by the horns in your own life and guide your own path? You just start doing it, that's how. But you first need a direction otherwise the bull you have by the horns won't know where to go on your life's path.
I'll be the first to tell you the truth and that is life really IS stacked against you. It only gets worse as we succumb to constant distractions, "fake news," celebrity bullshit, political scandal, the latest iPhone release, game apps, the latest shiny penny...and then we wonder why the hell life is going so fast without us accomplishing much. If anything we are actually losing a grip, losing control, and losing at life.
Last week my attorney asked my "opinion" when really he was just broaching a conversation. He asked why I think (at his age) that life is going by so fast? He said it seemed like only yesterday when we were celebrating the New Year and now it's almost June. In a blink of an eye. Just like that.
I told him that I thought it was much like driving on auto-pilot. We do the same things each day, especially the older we get. We are chained to a monotonous schedule. Same thing every day. Same thing every week. Like the movie Groundhog Day. Months roll over. Then we're back at Christmas and thinking WTF?! What happened to the time?
But next year will be different, right? We'll buckle down on those Resolutions and we'll make something happen in the next New Year. Right?
That's probably what you said on January 1st of this year, too. Except tomorrow is already June 1st and not much has happened with those New Year's Resolutions yet, has it?
In order to get what you want, you have to start pounding the iron with force, tenacity, and great will to succeed. Get off your ass and start working some kind of actionable plan already. What are you waiting for? And if you don't have one, I have some ideas for you to get out of that rut, out of that life of being broke all the time, and out of that cesspool of frustration and desperation that you've been swirling in.

Remember, nothing changes by itself. There is no ship that just comes sailing in for you. You have to swim out to the damn ship. Or better yet, build one from scratch.

See you at the top!
