Aw, Man. Good thing I meditated this morning (which I highly recommend, by the way)…for some pointers go here: GETTING IN THE GAP.
If I hadn’t I’d be pissed right now. This kind of crap really stews my tomatoes!
I go get the paper out of the driveway and that’s the first headline I see in the CareerBuilder section.
“It can be really hard to turn down a job offer. But sometimes you should.”
Really? I should?
OK, let’s break this down so as to fully expose the debilitating, weak, passion sucking, conditioned lie that’s inherent within that headline.
“It can be really hard to turn down a job offer.”
The only reason it’d be hard for me to turn anything down – ever – is because I’m afraid that I can’t get what I really want, so I’d better settle for the best that’s offered me. Ew. That’s the definition of scarcity thinking. It’s the same as survivalist thinking. And it’s old school. Way obsolete. So 1930’s. It’s the last thing that this next generation needs to hear. The next generation workforce isn’t even a workforce. They’re a Passionforce.
“But sometimes you should.”
Sometimes? What? OF COURSE you should. In fact, you should expect that you’d turn down the majority of offers. Yes, even in this economy! That’s what the Masters do. They don’t settle. They choose to operate from the Abundant Mentality knowing that what they really want IS available, always, no matter what. So no reason to settle. I’ll create what I want and it’s as simple as that. If I say yes to something less, I’m dishonoring my life. And I’m modeling scarcity to the world.
