You’ve got to go. You are ruining your life.
You can try to blame your mate or your boss or your mommy, but the only person who has been there in your life one hundred percent of the time is you. You made all those decisions, you made all those mistakes. You are making yourself miserable.
Time to put someone else in charge. There’s a man who can make the choices that will enrich your life and make you prosperous in every sense of the word. That man knows what is right, and in situations where it’s not clear what to do, he knows how to weigh the possibilities and make a good decision.
Who is this man?
He is the Man You Were Meant to Be. He’s the image in your head of who you were supposed to become by this time in your life. He’s the thinking, breathing doer that you have allowed to be browbeaten, criticized and talked out of his dreams.
He knows what to do. He knows what to do right now.
Do you think you are too guilty to prosper? Are there some transgressions and regrets you feel have condemned you to unworthiness? That’s that old whimpering fellow you’ve got to get rid of. The Man You Were Meant to Be looks at it like this: What image of yourself will help you rise up?
Simple. Putting yourself down, or letting your mate put you down, will not help. Seeing who you can be will help.
You can be a money-making, love-making, risk-taking winner. Just do what the Man You Were Meant to Be tells you to do. It won’t be comfortable to the whiner you are replacing, and it won’t make your mate happy (she may have a stake in keeping you down–it may make her feel superior without having to actually improve herself).
But it will make you roar. You will roar and put your fist in the air and get the damn job done for a change.
I could tell you stories. Like the friend who quit letting his wife tell him he was nobody, and who today is actively involved in performing his music, loving his new lover (who believes in him), and making good money. He is happy. He is someone new.
I could tell you about the man who stood up to his abusive wife (she was both physically and verbally abusive), told her he wasn’t going downhill with her any longer, and today is living a life full of dreams, deeds and a growing savings account. Yes, even through this recession.
There are techniques for becoming this kind of person. No matter how much you’ve lost, no matter how convinced you have been that you don’t deserve a damn thing. The techniques work to wake up the Man You Were Meant to Be.
And once that man is awake, he won’t let you go back to being a victim. That man is waiting for you to look him in the eye. All you have to do is take your eyes off your critics and turn to the one you can trust.
You are in a crisis. Today’s midlife crisis starts in your twenties and runs through your sixties–unless you take steps now to undo a life of quiet desperation.
Have a great midlife crisis. It’s the only one you get.
