So why should we ever give up or quit?
I think everyone should quit smoking.
Or more specifically, always quit the moment you realize you are not going to get what you truly want.
For example we often see the example that people who pursue money and power do not get love. The love and acceptance being what they really want but are constantly trying to fill that void in their lives with money and power. No amount of money can buy love (sure, you can rent the hell out of it) but it is still not love.
Should they quit making money then?
No, they just need to make a shift in getting their needs met.
But if they don’t have such a huge drive to make money anymore from their own lack of love then won’t they at least have a drop in their motivation in making money.
Yep. Which is part of what scares the crap out of people that are power hungry and make a lot of money. They will make less money. And now the truly scary part. If they do make a true shift in getting their needs met then will they be happy and satisfied just making less money? The answer –
This is the main reason why creative people do not get help. For two weeks after therapy they are not creative anymore. And this should scare the crap out of you.
Unless you do one more thing. Anybody know what that is?
