Stop asking what you can DO until you watch THIS VIDEO
The last few days a number of people have reached out to me looking for support through this current crisis.
What I see in a lot of these folks is a deep desire to engage and a way to make a meaningful difference with these issues.
But what lies underneath this desire to change the world is an unaddressed need for something that will make them feel as though they are aligned with their values.
The message received is that if you don’t act you are a bad person. It doesn’t have to be this complicated.
Chances are you’re overcomplicating things to avoid having to do the hard work.
Back in 2014 I had a side hustle of writing about my experiences with race. I’ve since stopped doing that because it wasn’t helping me to actually live the life that I wanted to.
I found myself in a repetitive cycle of realizing how terrible the world is, needing to express my pain and anger, and repressing it until the next time something terrible would happen.
Eventually I realized that I was so reactive to the state of the world I couldn’t actually develop a sustainable practice towards living in the world. I only knew how to survive the world I found myself in.
When I lost my job in September 2019 I went on a journey to become a life coach.
