Recently, I’ve been playing Candy Crush. It’s fun, quite relaxing and at the same time learnt a few lessons from it that can be useful in life and business. So let’s dive straight in and share what I’ve learnt.
While playing, I don’t really worry whether I will pass this level and go to the next one because I know it’s a game and I don’t have much or anything on my mind. I’m completely present and absorbed in the game, at least, most of the time. But when it comes to finding a job (since I have no job at the moment), when I look up the newspapers, I don’t see many opportunities and that gets me worried. And you may think, of course, there’s a reason to worry because it’s a matter of livelihood. Yes, it is a matter of livelihood but worry has nothing to do with it. Worry is a thought and it never comes from lack of money. If that was true, then, why do rich people worry? They should be immune to worry. There’s an interesting story in Michael Neill’s book called Supercoach where he talks about the $600 million man. This guy was Michael’s client and his net worth was $600 million but every day he would wake up and wonder, if today is the day he’s going to lose it all. So just imagine, if we saw worry as a thought and nothing more, how would we show up in life or business and what would be possible.
If you’d like to share your thoughts, you can write below and besides finding a job, I’m also a coach so if you want to talk about something that’s been worrying you and you can’t seem to move forward, you are most welcome to contact meand I’d love to have a conversation.
Take care and have a lovely day!
