Standing By

Image of barbed wire

It’s your lucky day – there’s money for you – if you will just stand by.

Yes, keep reading and I’ll show you what’s involved.

In order to succeed, you’re going to have to do something.

And by doing something, I mean doing nothing.

Some people will be detained. They’re people that might not mean anything to you, probably not your family. Occasionally one might have lived in your neighborhood. You’ve probably seen them around town and wondered about them though.

They’ll be kept apart because government leaders say they don’t belong here.

You might hear that the conditions where they’re kept are not the best – you could choose to believe the government when they says it’s fine.

You just have to stand by.

And then you’ll be better off.

You’re going to hear top officials call for people that aren’t like you and I to go away.

They’ll say it’s clear that these others aren’t satisfied with the country we’ve created. That there’s no reason for us to change at all, and it’s the others that should leave.

It’ll be taken care of.

All you have to do is stand by.

The country has been through some rough financial times lately, but you can see that we’ve turned the corner. The country’s current leadership pins the blame for those economic conditions on the instability caused by others. Explaining that we’ll be safer and better off when the others are gone.

You can go along to get along.

Don’t worry, you’ll be part of it if you stand by.

Church and Faith may have an important part in your life, and you can see religious organizations lined up on each side of this issue. You know some well-placed people, and they’re promising you that you’ll be better off with their position.

That may be true.

What I can’t answer for you is – how much.

I’m sure there’s a fortune to be made, if enough people just stand by.

It’s a relative figure, maybe some millions of dollars, maybe some thousands of dollars. But is there really a dollar amount that will get you to stand by?

Don’t worry, when it’s all over, you can say you were following orders and didn’t lead anything, you just stood by.

One thing though.

Before you go.

Take the time to ask yourself this: Are you the kind of person that can just stand by?

Comfort Zone – Redux

Read more – get out of your Comfort Zone

It seems quite a while ago that I was talking about getting out of your comfort zone to grow, but it all came back when I read Robert Middleton’s blog this week.

I’ve been adding various RSS feeds and newsletters from other writers at a good rate these past six months, and it’s interesting to read other views on the same material that I’ve covered.

Robert’s premise is that “there are no marketing breakthroughs inside the comfort zone.”

That sounds quite similar to what I’ve written about – and then he goes on…

Stress from the Non-Standard

Where is your Comfort Zone?

Our comfort zone isn’t an actual place, but describes the set of behaviors we are comfortable with, things we do that don’t create a sense of risk or make us anxious – where we feel safe and comfortable.

Our Comfort Zone is great when we need to relax, recover, and restore ourselves; to regroup and plan, but it’s not the best place to grow and extend.

For that, we need to leave the safety of our comfort zone. We need to push ourselves to experience the new and unfamiliar.
