Minus and Plus

minus and plus signs

When you start anything new you are usually drawn to it (+). That’s because you’re looking at the great possibilities for all the goodness that you envision. It’s all part of the packaging of the new and different.

But then, after a while, the difficulties and problems start to arise as you try to grasp the newness and gain control of it. If it’s a new business you’re starting for example, it can be really fun in the beginning until customers start demanding better service and supplier’s want their accounts paid up.

It can get so bad that you might want to run away (-) and hide.

I know what it’s like.  I’ve started many small businesses that failed miserably. But I couldn’t run away (-) from the worst one because it was in farming and there were livestock involved who had to be milked every day. I had to ride that one right till the day they came in trucks and picked up all of our goats and sent them to the processor. That was a big (-) I can tell you.

Existence is filled with these things (-). Few and far between are the (+) it seems. Especially these days.

But I found a way to change that and it helped a lot of people with the (-) in their lives. But I had to stay with the process of learning about the newness I called H.E.R.O. well enough to be able to articulate its story.

Glad I did too. So will you because there could be a pile of (-) heading your way and this can make you strong enough to turn a lot of the (-) into (+).

And that, my friend, is  going to keep you from moving away from things that might be good for you to moving closer to them.

More power to you.


Mindset Crumple Zones

Crumple zones help

Crumple zones work by managing crash energy, absorbing it within the outer sections of the vehicle, rather than being directly transmitted to the occupants, while also preventing intrusion into or deformation of the passenger cabin. This better protects car occupants against injury.

-From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I love the idea of crumple zones.  They have saved a lot of lives in car accidents since they were introduced by Mercedes-Benz in the 1950’s.

But I have a new use of the term. What if a type of crumple zone was available for the human thinking so that when some negative experience happens in their lives people can feel less injury?
