You always have a chance if you live to fight another day. If you wake up in the morning to fight again, you are one of the lucky ones. – Howard Davis (My Dad)
You can jump off a cliff without knowing what is on the other side. We love stories about people who take risks. We love them because we admire bravery. The best stories are of triumph in the face of adversity.
The end of the year is creeping up. A time of a reflection. We look back and see what we can do better or what we want to change moving forward. Evaluation works most of the time, except when it doesn’t. Sometimes the best thing to do is to stop. Some situations are not worth making changes. Accept when something has run it’s course and walk away.
The best beginning is often the end of something else. When a job, relationship or situation has no value for you any more walk away. It isn’t quitting, it is looking after what is best for you and only you know that.
Life has ups and downs. It is just the way it is. Things are good for a while, they get bad for a while. We are not always able to control what happens to us. What we can do is control our reaction to situations.
Jumping off a cliff is good for you. It means that you have faith in your abilities to make the best decisions possible in any given situation.
What does this have to do with social media? The other side of removing things from your life means you have room for something new. Where do you find this? Explore! Read blogs, find interesting people to talk to on Twitter, join groups. Find, friend and then facilitate change through conversations.
We need help from the people in our lives to make sure we can get to where we want to go. If it is worth doing, it is done with the help of many hands.
Go out and find help or give it where it is needed!
