If You Excel at Sales and Fund Raising, Plus Want to be at the Forefront of a Ground-Breaking, Life-Changing Initiative …

Though not titled academically, I consider myself a social scientist and as such, I know firsthand the challenges of being a scientist … all the research, study, efforts, and the failures before the idea is conceptualized, developed, and one day will pay off. I’m not trying to create a miracle cure or orchestrate a moon shot … just shift the world’s perspective about what we think of and how we treat each other … hoping one day enough people will realize that valuing … respecting every life is the most simple, yet feasible, economically sound, healthiest, and compassionate means to solve so many of our personal, family, school, work, community, national, and global problems. Good to know I’m in good company in theory and I am looking forward to working with the real team to make this shift happen … for us now and and the generations to come.

ON THAT NOTE … If you excel at sales and raising funds, plus want to be on the forefront of a ground-breaking, life changing initiative, here’s your chance! Visit the JOB OPPORTUNITIES tab for details!

Look forward to working with you!

“Antisociality Encourages SELF-SUFFICIENCY”

Caught up in the expectations of others at a young age, I didn’t discover and develop my natural talents until I grew frustrated, disappointed, and jaded with life. Marked by migraines and stomach problems, plus addictions such as busyness, shopping, and needing people’s approval, I finally hit the wall of not being able to continue the life I had become entangled in.

Wanting to change my life because of the discovery of what I really wanted to do with my life meant breaking up other people’s lives. My husband of nineteen years wanted me to stay the same as did everyone else I knew at the time.

But then I met a man at a new job who liked me for the person I was discovering myself to be. When I left my husband and everything else behind, the man’s words, “You’ll love being alone” I didn’t understand because I wanted to be with him.

He was right, though for years I didn’t love being alone, until one day I did. No longer feeling pulled apart by people’s expectations, my journey of self-discovery revealed things about myself I did not know, some of which I liked and some I did not. A lot of exploration, taking chances, and making mistakes revealed I was stronger and more capable than I had come to believe years before. Rebellion was replaced with independence and self-sufficiency. A strong heart replaced a broken one. A lost identity was found.

And the love for that man stayed with me, transforming me from someone who had not known how to love myself or another in a healthy, functional way to someone who can.

So being antisocial for a while was a good thing … one I’d recommend to anyone, though not getting caught up in everyone’s expectations at all may mean you won’t have to traverse the rocky road of rediscovering and reclaiming one’s true identity and best choices for your best life.

The above post was inspired by the following linked article “When It’s Good to be Antisocial”  by Silvia Golombeanu for Pocket

VALUING … RESPECTING a Life for Simply Being a Life REFLECTS OUR HIGHER MORAL CHOICE and STANDARD

Needing a reason to value … respect a person’s life reflects a limiting belief, we may even sub or unconsciously hold, that someone has to approve of someone before they are valuable … worthy of respect.

Considering this perspective, is it no wonder what is going on in our world?

Changing such a limiting dominant belief is the mission driving the social business venture, Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle.

Want to be part of that change, check out the job/limited partner opportunities or give financially because the simple truth of the matter is when we look at the big picture and the details, anything less keeps us all small  and low because, like it or not, we are all in this life together and we all affect each other, right away or from the ripples we create.

“LEARNING EMPATHY … It is a Tool or Skill”

“However, learning empathy takes effort, and empathy alone does not guarantee positive connections. It is a tool or skill that provides people with information from which we are then free to take actions, or not. Empathy itself is neutral. What we choose to do with it is up to us”.
 
“The challenge with empathy is to be open to gaining knowledge about others. We tend to be biased when it comes to empathy. We are better at reading those who are like us than at reading people who are different.”

The INSANE IDEA CREATING CHAOS in Our World

“Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity.” Albert Einstein

The thing is, the wisdom applies to all areas of our and humanity’s lives. When we refuse, because of our beliefs experience, apathy, or our ostrich head-in-the-sand approach, to make the changes we need individually and collectively, the same problems and patterns keep repeating themselves and people keep paying the costs of preventable tragedies.

It may sound too absurd to think that a little shift in our thinking can address the complex problems of our world … but I speak from experience and know it can and it does. And I’m not talking about love or religion, but about an intellectual secular idea that does include a little heart in it.

“The Art of Blooming Late”

“Citing the work of developmental psychologist Erik Erikson, Karlgaard writes, the “ages 40 to 64 constitute a unique period where one’s creativity and experience combine with a universal human longing to make our lives matter.”

… “That said, once you’ve decided to embark on the journey, it may take years, if not longer, to reach your destination. But as research has shown, small daily changes can have a compound effect and slowly but surely lead you closer to the person you think you ought to be.”

“If you ever get stuck, think of Joanne, a talented and creative woman who bounced from job to job throughout her twenties, working as a researcher, secretary, and English-as-a-second-language teacher. Optionless and clinically depressed, she felt like a total failure. But she took that feeling of despair and used it to her advantage. Since she hadn’t succeeded in following a standard path, she felt liberated to do what she’d always wanted to do: write fantasy novels for children. As she would later recount, “I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was.””

“You’ve probably heard of her. Her pen name is J.K. Rowling.”

Article by Kevin Evers for Harvard Business Review, May-June 2019 Issue

I know the feeling very well, yet I also know the success will come … in time. Until then, well, the answer is finding the best work to use my natural talents, characteristics, experience, and drive so I will enjoy the employment until I am fully supported by my for-profit social business venture transforming respect from a discretionary value to the global principle … by writing books and creating products to raise the standard of living and quality of life of all people.

Who knows, maybe you are the employer who needs what I can provide?

Regardless, I cannot express how empowering it is to discover who you really are in order to step up and start cutting your own unique path.

Best wishes!

Condolences to all, plus the hope more people will finally grasp the need to adopt a global philosophy/principle that all life is valuable … to be respected … because without it, well, the past and present tell the truth and show the consequences of disrespect as the dominant belief.
