The I and R word… It is the headline of the news, topic of conversation, worry being stirred up. Inflation…Recession…yikes! Obviously, one cannot stick their head in the sand and ignore the buzz. What will / does it all mean, big picture AND reality within day-to-day living and business? I am starving for non-partisan, agenda free, information…give me the data not opinion, interpretation, so I am positioned to make informed, unbiased decisions. I am aware of economic changes that cannot be denied.
I find myself continually embracing the idea to reimagine the possibilities of 'living inside out, in an outside in world'.
I and R - outside in… All is viewed through the lens of ‘experts’, media and the Fear. Our narratives sound familiar to storylines, talking points. A helpless, doomsday attitude dominates our thoughts. We’re becoming victims!
I and R - inside out… Applying the facts to be fully mindful of, to what are individual (personal and business) actual experiences, develop a plan within one’s own control. As much as possible, can we attempt to defy and create destiny? Seek solutions, avoid contributing to the problem, if only through attitude. What changes can be made to budgets? Is it imaginable, with an alternative point of view, there exists opportunities to explore? (ie: Staycation in one's own city, New product, service or training, Bartering, Collaboration, etc.)
Frustrating and disappointing this situation is upon us – how much is it effecting your life, relationships and or work? Can you determine what is outside in thinking and the possibility for inside out perspectives? Please share!
How are you living - your truest inner being, obsessing over external narratives/approvals/belonging, anywhere on the spectrum in between, OR? How much do you know, want to understand your own story and the way it shows up, serves you in life, family, career? It feels like the unpacking for me has been going on for decades, perhaps most influentially the past 5+years. May I support you, wherever you are at, to consider what might be in your baggage? To intentionally cross the door's threshold? Is it time to purposefully live OUR STORIES, 'inside out'?
