Fear contra the courage taking decisions

September 4, 2011

Which is bigger? Fear to take decisions or the fear of losing security?
What does security mean?  What is still safe? We live in a time of change and the only constant is change.
We are now hardly working as our parents did, more than 30 or even 40 years for one employer. Rarely, we are spared to get a second job, if we continue as an employee, want to enjoy the apparent safety. Often enough we are forced to change our profession because of disease or allergy. Unemployment is another reason to switch jobs.
On the other hand, young graduates are worn put by working 70 hours per week. They earn good money, but have no time to spend it. The family planning cannot take place because there is not enough time to meet a partner and to nurture the relationship. The reality of young physician assistants, young leaders in management and police officers is also very alarming.

 

Not only working twice as much per week, but on top is the enormous stress which builds up fear of doing something wrong. How long will the joy received in the profession remain?
They are bound to illness and burnout. Burnout is hitting even younger people.

 

Burnout should be taken seriously. However, should it be a part of professional life? Bullying is often the trigger for burnout. And after burnout bullying comes again because the person is less resilient.
How long will you endure your professional situation? Is it worth the security of retirement? Is it more precious than a happy and healthy life? Those who know what burnout is can no longer simply return to the old rat race. This is however expected from the colleagues and they are easily an outsider in the team.
More and more people stuck in temporary contracts and have little chance of a permanent contract. With The frequent change of companies and locations, they have no chance of a normal family life. In the schools young teachers are on temporary contracts. This means a constant start for teachers and students. Frustration and illness are the answer.
Does this really imply security?
As long as you are looking for securities on the outside, you will not find any security. Security you can only discover and cultivate inside of you.
You only reach real security if you can conquer the fear. Because then you can live in peace with yourself and the world. Only then you will also experience long-term success.

 

Get to know your fears. Then you’ll find that they rarely have to do something with your life reality. Fear is Mind Cinema! But nevertheless, it determines your life!

 

Which decision do you need to take urgently??
