We are rapidly approaching the 2012 date so discussed and worried about over the last few years. We will take a quick trip around reviewing fear in our life and what it can do. After writing about that I’d like to write about the Holiday season, and what reason people are celebrating if it is not for the birth of Christ?
To begin; I spent time preparing, worrying, thinking about, pondering, pontificating, concerned over, searching for answers, and just all around fearful about the upcoming 12/12/2012. End of the Mayan long count calendar, Hopi, Chinese and supposed other end of times predictions. Cataclysmic planetary pole shifts, astrological wonders that would shake and remake the world. Shifts in our consciousness, jumps in evolution, a rainbow bridge into a more peaceful future.
There are, were a lot of things to consider about this latest and upcoming scare fest. Much of the conclusions that personally we in our family came to is that really there is nothing to be afraid of. Change, though scary, is inevitable and in this faster moving society is absolutely essential. In fact the future belongs to those who can quickly adapt. It was this reality that prompted my decision to be a supertramp. An ecological entity able to quickly and easily adapt to numerous and various surroundings. Born out of much of the ecological changes I saw, iike the proliferation of the kudzu vine, eating the woods of MO and AR. The asian carp taking over the US waterways. A bacteria that is suffocating and taking over the waterways of LA and TX. All these super plants and super bugs, and super fish that just take over an ecosystem. That adapt to many environments and do so easily. Though we did not propagate the species with many children of our own, we can help transform others into Supertramps. As a human supertramp you have the power to adapt by decision making and self evolution for lack of a better term.
Though emergency preparedness is important it should not become all consuming. While it is a great idea, the bible actually teaches that in the real end of times, there is nothing you can do. When he calls you, you just go, don’t get your coat, don’t go back to bury your dead. You GO! When the spirit moves you.
How about you? Do you live in fear? Consumed with what is going to happen? Uncertain about your future? This is where two things come into importance. 1. your faith and belief of what happens after you die. My security lies in the fact that Jesus was born and crucified for our sins. Allowing me, through his grace to enter heaven because he intercedes on my behalf. 2. Personal worth. Knowledge and security in my own personal worth, knowing that even in a crisis my thoughts, my mental toughness, my physical and emotional preparedness as well as my generalized knowledge and willingness to find solutions will be invaluable no matter the age or circumstance. Skills that anybody can develop.
Let us imagine for a moment we are together. Everything we have known about the world has changed. It is Zombie Land. Or post apocalyptic world gone mad. What might that look like? Who would be in it? Where would you go? How would you travel? Thus begins the process of finding solutions for our current life. Survival requires discipline. Survival will require optimism and hope for the future. Survival will require a solutions mindset. Survival will require tenacity. Guesswhat, those are the same skills required to be successful as an entrepreneur, as a leader, as a professional in any arena.
Looking back personally the fear was no good. However; the preparation, the conditioning the solutions thinking, the personal growth and community building experience, all were invaluable. We set out because what if there was a 2013. The world looked much different for victims of Sandy. It looks different for those struck by Tornado, flood, fire, famine, disease, or any other problem that attacks us in life. Being willing and capable to adapt to that, because you have conditioned yourself to change is priceless. It will be just another day of change. You will process it, catalog it as a life event, learn from it, and continue toward your purpose and vision for your life. Move on toward who you want to be. Whether it is death and destruction you are worried about, or your competitor coming out with a game changing bit of technology, or someone in your field who can adapt faster beating you at a game you used to know the rules to by doing things that change the rules.
In celebration of the world not ending, Supertramp Coaching will be giving away 100 hours of imagination development. Is Imagination therapy better? If it is called therapy does one need to be a doctor? Coaching, consulting, whatever you call it the process is the same. Where have you been, where are younow, how do you feel about that, where do you want to go, when do you want to be there, how are you doing to do it, WHY are you doing it?
“Imagination is more important than fact.” Albert Einstein. Surviving the apocalypse, or just making it through a day in the 21st century.
What are you doing to develop your imagination? Do you play games with your life? How do you utilize your creative juices?
