Ever feel like nobody sees your point of view? People just don’t understand you? This Is very common in our diverse society, but doesn’t mean we have to give up on what we feel is right. Stay the course.
An acquaintance once felt it necessary to revamp daily policy and procedures, which would require other people in his department to change the way they do things. Not seeing his vision for change, they barked and labeled him as a threat to their department.
He stayed on course and implemented many changes. The outcome, administration viewed as a win-win for everyone. Patient satisfaction climbed to the highest it had ever been, revenue nearly tripled and our friend found himself working closely with administration implementing other organizational changes to duplicate the same result in other departments. The sad outcome, was our friend lost his job. How I this possible? Administration looked so good promotion was inevitable, just not for our friend. While new administration had new agendas and the department that our friend was in still held animosity towards him, his peers immediately began looking for ways to let him go. During a recent downsizing, the department found their way. Our friend, being the highest paid in his area, quickly found himself on the chopping block.
Should he have started the original task or remain status quo? With our pilgrim/warrior analogy, the pilgrim would have just remained status quo while the warrior always advances with intent of greater good. Our Warrior friend found himself amidst a difficult lesson, but remained true to himself even though it cost his job.
While many would find this disheartening, our Warrior friend found peace among all this as he knew he was right on course with his highest self. Staying true to himself among adversities, allowed true freedom to prevail. While jobs are slim for many, the jobs remain endless for the Warrior.
Stepping into the Canvas with a Warrior attitude, remaining virtuous in every step. Choose not to pay attention to bleak outcomes, but remain centered in endless possibilities. When we align ourselves with this Warrior attitude, the universe returns the favor with endless possibilities.
