- The question you should ask is who’s life are you living?
- Are you living the life your parents chose? Are you living according to the rules of society or your husband’s ideal wife?
- Or are you living the life of someone who doesn’t quite know?
- Are you going on day in, and day out existing and never truly accomplishing anything at all?
These and questions like these are the ones we should ask ourselves when we stare into the mirror of life. What would happen if the real you appeared to all those who believe they know and love you? Why was the real you hidden in the first place?
What happens when your life is great, but it isn’t the life you feel you should be living? What do you do when you have worked so hard to create a life, but you suddenly come to the realization that this life you built is not you? It’s not the life you wanted it’s the life others expected you to build. Would that be enough to throw you into a spiral of addictive behavior? Would you even realize that is happening? Could you make the change if confronted with real life solutions?
Because life’s too short to live it as someone else. Things you can do to master behaviors, communications and determine your success.
This speech is a call to action. We spend about eighty percent of our day at work, the rest is at home. If we have a bad day at work we are likely to take that negativity home with us and vice versa. It is of paramount importance that we create healthy environments in the spaces that most affect our lives by giving of our best and receiving the like in return. The 5 Chairs is a powerful and systematic method which helps us master our own behaviors and manage the behaviors of others. To be a good leader is to contribute to the success and happiness of everyone, at work and at home, on a conscious level. The 5 Chairs offer 5 Choices. Which will you choose?
