The confusion, lack of clarity and disorientation pale in comparison to the feelings of “stuckness” that are often experienced by those scrambling to right themselves after being struck by waves of change or the undertow of being no longer relevant to the marketplace.
Pulling out of this death spiral requires a new way of being.
Deceived into believing that success is something you do, rather than something you are, those who are going through a rough patch needlessly exhaust their limited resources by pursuing procedures, equipment or scripting that makes them increasingly inauthentic, uncentered and unattractive.
Real success is about being fully you, not becoming a cheap imitator of someone else. Beware of those who suggest “do it like I do it.” Modeling others only seems like a convenient shortcut. And anointing a mentor practically invites exploitation.
If you’re afraid that being fully you would chase patients away, change you.
