So yesterday I asked you to think about what you need.
I was pleasantly surprised to get some emails from people who thought about the question, defined their need, and then categorized their pain as chronic or acute. (We’ll deal with passion later in the series).
I received the typical responses: The need for a loving and lasting relationship; the dream of writing a book; going back to school; eating healthy.
Can I say that I wasn’t surprised? That’s pretty much what I expected.
Which is why I asked the original question: How Acute Is Your Pain?
Don’t Talk About It – Be About It
May I interject some tough love?
If you’re not doing something to alleviate your acute pain, then it’s really not acute – it’s simply chronic.
That applies to just about every facet of life, from relationships to writing books; from eating healthy to going back to school.
You see, when pain is truly acute you stop at nothing to get some relief. If you have a migraine headache, you don’t just lay down and hope it goes away. No, you find some medicine – you move swiftly to find something that will take the pain away.
Want a relationship? Tired of being alone? Want to write a book? Want to go back to school? Want to eat healthy?
Then what active steps are you taking to make that happen?
If you always do what you’ve always done, then you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.
So I’ll ask you again: How Acute Is Your Pain?
Is it acute enough to get you to make a move?
