Getting Lost in Personal Drama Versus Creating a Life

Personal drama… almost everyone has one. The issue with the job, the kids who are acting up and going nowhere, the spouse who is not all that he or she could be… and so on and so forth… such is the stuff that most personal dramas are all about.

Asking people about what concerns them the most and about what occupies their mind most of the time usually points to the melodrama of a challenging personal life. It’s almost as if they were a character in a movie or a book and all that mattered was the story.

That’s not living. It’s role-playing. It’s not embracing the world and all that it has to offer; it’s navel gazing at best and life wasting in the worst-case scenarios. It’s walking around with blinders on and ignoring the hundreds of other realities that are out there.

Everyone has challenges, problems and difficulties. That’s part of life but it’s just a part of it, not the whole thing. We should and we must do whatever we can to solve the problems that we can solve but needless worries about what we cannot change never helped anyone.

Every new day that is given us is a new start – that is unless we are still stuck in our personal drama and refuse to even consider all the opportunities that are out there just waiting to be seized and turned into wonderful and life fulfilling achievements.

Anthony Robbins said, “Life is not biographical; the past does not equate the future.” Essentially what that means is the fact that the course of our life is not stuck on a fixed trajectory that cannot be changed.

Life gives us choices. If we don’t appreciate the path that we are on, it’s always possible to change it. There is always a way that we can either shed the negative or embrace it in a way that may be challenging but not necessarily a roadblock to a fulfilling life.

We are the Captain of our ship and regardless of the winds and tides, we can always change course and head for a friendlier port. People have gone through miserable childhood and have been able to turn their lives around and make huge successes out of them.

If you don’t like the life that you are living now, change it. All that you have to do Dramacool  is to take responsibility for your life, stop blaming your present condition on something or someone else and go for it.

The problem is that, most of the time, we believe that the problems that we’re having now might not be as bad as the problems that we may encounter if we decide to change. This will not happen if the changes that are contemplated are well planned.

Major life changes should not be done on the spur of the moment. Reflection and planning are essential. Goals and objectives have to be set, a course of action and strategies have to be defined and an alternative course in case of major obstacles has to be established.

Albert Einstein said, “The significant problems we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” Most people will spend more time planning a two-week vacation than they did planning their entire life. No wonder there is so many unhappy people on our little Planet.
