Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for August 26, 2010-Losing To Gain (Possessions), Part 4 (Vol.3, Iss.4)


Stop worrying about what you have to lose and ...

Stop worrying about what you have to lose and start focusing on what you have to gain. (Photo credit: deeplifequotes)

Well here is another blog post I found on the drafting table. It seemed in perfect alignment with the fact that millions of people purchased lotto tickets with the hope of a chance to become an instant millionaire if they win the 636 million dollar mega lottery drawing!

Are you dreaming of becoming a millionaire? What are  15 (6+3+6 ) things you could do with that much money? Would you take a lump sum or installments?  How would your life change as a millionaire? Who would you bless with some of your winnings? Where would you travel, in the USA or beyond?

Tell me how you would answer the questions if you became the 636 million dollar man or woman!

Losing To Gain (Possessions), Part 4

Things, stuff, things, stuff and more things and more stuff. Houses, cars,
stocks, bonds, land, and businesses are just a few of the things and stuff that
people own. Lately, it is hard to find people who have not experienced the loss
of possessions. The current economic climate has heightened people’s awareness
of their things, their stuff, and their possessions. The loss of possessions is
the final installment in the series “Losing To Gain”. Losing possessions is an
area that is worth examining a little closer.

Everyone has something or multiple things which are near and dear to their
heart. Let’s face it, if you worked hard for that car, that house, or that
business your ownership is a serious matter. It has been said that anything you
work hard for is well worth fighting for,if the effort was made to obtain it,
then go the extra mile to retain it. Some would say that these days fighting for
your possessions is becoming a routine task. Many people find themselves in a
position of fighting to keep their things, their stuff, their possessions.

It is amazing how losing one thing or one possession has the ability to start a
cycle of loss. Pat and Paul Possessors are a married couple with two children in
private school, living in a home, with two cars and a mini-van. Pat is a Office
Administrator and Paul is a District Sales Manager and both have worked for
their companies for more than 10 years, with solid retirement plans in place.
The Possessors’ take vacations to destinations inside and outside of the
country, several times a year. Pat and Paul are also the owners of a
successful small real estate company. A year ago, Paul was laid off from his
job, the Possessors have seen their lives change drastically. The Possessors
summed up their loss in this way: one car was loss, the children’s private
school attendance was loss, the real estate business loss clients, but most
importantly the family loss a major income stream. The devastation of losing
possessions was difficult for the Possessors, yet they were determined to stay
positive. The possessions were important to the Possessors but they were not
their central focus.

The loss of stuff, things, or possessions should not only be viewed as the end,
but as a beginning. When loss of possessions occurs, the obvious questions of
why and how settle in waiting to find answers. Losing possessions should promote
the notion of living with less. Many people have been forced to not focus on the
things they have loss but to learn to live better with what they have left. So
if you have experienced a loss of possession recently and find yourself whining
and complaining about your things and your stuff, get OVER IT!

Life is far more precious than the POSSESSIONS you surround yourself with,like a
blanket of comfort. Take time and review  what you have loss and see the blessing in
having your life, your health and your family. Losing to Gain (Possessions) can
best be summed up by the comedic genius of George Carlin. In his stand-up
comedy performance, Mr. Carlin exposes how losing your stuff can easily send you
into a crazy state. *Mr. Carlin (R.I.P.) does use a few choice words in his
delivery but he makes you think about you and your stuff.

“Let your LACK…Make an IMPACT” Have


“Let your LACK…Make an IMPACT”

Have ever been told that you LACK… “the skills we are seeking for this position”, “the money to fund your dream”, “the knowledge to perform a task”, “the experience to challenge others”, “the name recognition” and it goes on and on? Once you are given this notice of your apparent “short-comings” you are put on the seat of decision, you can see your LACK as a SETBACK or see your LACK Make an IMPACT.

If you accept the idea that your LACK is a SETBACK, then you give those that feel “you can’t, you won’t, and you never will” a red light for speaking failure into your life. LACK as a SETBACK is easy to embrace if you have given up on you and what you believe you can do, be, and become. SETBACKS can be viewed as events that require a time of reflection on the activities or actions taken to reach this point, in other words what did I LACK. It has been said that SETBACKS are a setup for a comeback; you can make the choice on if the LACK will be a SETBACK in your life. When you see the LACK as a SETBACK, you decide to give up and give in on your ability to be a success.

When you Let your LACK Make an IMPACT, you realize that underdogs or the one everyone counted out can be counted on and make a difference. Once you determine that others will not stand in your way to becoming a success, you start to build on your LACK. Only you can take their words of discouragement spoken to you and turn them into words of encouragement- “I have skills that are useful”, “I will make money to fund my dream”, “I am knowledgeable about many things”, “my experience can work to my advantage”, “and my name is my personal brand”. Let your LACK Make an IMPACT by envisioning what you want to achieve and then take the steps needed to make it happen! 7/22/10
