Now that the buzz has quieted a bit after Steven Slater’s infamous jetBlue meltdown, I’d like to take a moment to offer 5 powerful tips for avoiding the same fate.
(If you aren’t familiar with this story – Slater was a long-time jetBlue flight attendant who finally had enough of being treated poorly by passengers and announced on the PA that he was through with it all, grabbed a couple of beers, opened the emergency door ((while the plane was parked – fortunately, he still had enough wits about him not to do this in-flight)), activated the escape chute, and took a slide toward freedom. He was largely heralded by workers everywhere for his dramatic ‘take this job and shove it’ approach to quitting. While laudable, he has been charged with several FAA, and other, violations and may be facing jail time.)
Yes, life can drive you to want to have a drink or two (if you do, I highly recommend checking out www.liquor.com), but it can also be VERY rewarding and fulfilling. The following 5 Tips will help you stay proactive on creating the life you deserve and desire.
1) Be clear on who you are. It’s been said that “if you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything.” Take a hard look at what you’re doing day in and day out and heed what your soul abhors. I strongly believe that every minute you spend engaged in an activity your soul loathes, you reduce your life expectancy by an equal amount of time.
2) Understand your Danger Zones. If you hated getting paper cuts as a child and you make a living as a filer, odds are good you’re going to get cut and lose it in the near future. We each have our sore spots. It’s crucial to identify yours.
3) Identify your WHAT—that is, the one thing your soul is compelled to do, and begin creating a plan of action for realizing it.
4) Recognize your strengths. What are yours? If you spend the majority of your time taking on activities that are not supportive of where your DNA is wired to excel.
