When we were children, our parents forced us through our fear barrier on the first day of school, we would rather have remained in the safe and familiar surrounds of our home than have to go and play near the stranger by the sand pit.
Fast forward several decades and the inner child still feels the same.
We quickly realised that getting to know the kid by the sand pit was fun and made this new experience fun, of course that new friendship may have faded but it did lead onto new ones with people that shared similar hopes and passions but somehow along the way we forgot this lesson.
As adults the idea of getting to know other people is fraught with danger or so says our inner child.
The problem of course is that we get so caught up with the desired outcome that we forget to enjoy the process of chatting with others who understand and are interested in what we are talking about.
Trust me if you have ever tried to discuss OTO CTR post double optin lead generation with a dis-interested partner or a non marketing friend, you will know what I mean!
The question of course is how will this help you to leave and say farewell to the pity train?
Once you accept that making friends with people that share similar hopes and passions is key to your success then you are nearly ready to disembark.
Before you leave, I would take the time to visit the rest room and take a good look in the mirror. What is that person looking back at you really interested in, what is their deepest unlimited hope and passion, what is it that they are really scared of.
If you can answer these questions then you are ready to say farewell to the pity train and all of those that refuse to look inside themselves for their answers.
Once you know what you want, what your internal barriers are and what really gets your life juices flowing then its time to find others who share these passions. Whilst you are doing this you are of course developing a plan to blast through all and any obstacles that stand between you and your hopes and passions.
Are you ready to leave the pity train?
