The stress in your world is like a rubber band ready to snap
- Old habits that keep you at the bottom
- The world is so far out of balance that…
- Stretched beyond their limits
- You either resent them or are angered
The stress in your world is like a rubber band ready to snap. To most people personal development seems like a trek up a steep mountain. Will you ever reach the top of this summit or will you find what you are looking for once you get there?
Most people believe that setting goals to improve means giving yourself something to be proud of once you get there. What if you don’t make it up the mountain? Many people get tired half way up and turn around and go back down. This is symbolic of attempting a goal but being drawn back into old habits that keep you at the bottom.
Next, what should you pick to improve on. The world is so far out of balance that to many, just knowing where to start is a huge problem. I can’t do that because people won’t like me, I can’t this because I will be judged by my spouse or family, I can’t do that because I don’t have enough money, or energy, or time. You just seem to think you don’t have enough of everything otherwise you wouldn’t be trying so hard to get more.
In a previous session we explained that the world is like a rubber band stretched to the point it could snap at any moment. If you observe people they are all the same – stretched beyond their limits and ready to snap or lash out at anyone who gets in their way at the wrong time. They take everything personally.
If you meet someone who seems to be living an easy life everything flows for them. You either resent them or are angered that you don’t know what to do. What are they doing? Then you say things like, “Oh, I couldn’t do that, there’s not enough time, and I’m under too much stress.” There are no possibilities for improvement when you are under so much pressure. Your goal, if you need to set one, should be to do everything you can to relieve the pressures in your life. Only then will you be able to make clearer decisions going forward.

COMMENTARY: It’s the holiday time of the year and instead of seeing happy people when you go anywhere you see stressed out angry people. You can feel the tension everywhere you go, the grocery store, the post office, at work, driving anywhere and even school. It’s even at home as each family member unwittingly brings the residue of everyone else’s stress that they encountered that day into the home. This is easy to solve – stop taking everything personally and make deliberate choices in your life to eliminate the stress and pressures. Your life may become VERY simple but you will gradually begin to feel better and think better. I talk about how I did this in 1998-99 in my book GUIDED. It was something I put off for far too long and finally took the steps to recreate a life that made sense for the first time ever.
