Episode 230: The Strike

business tips May 05, 2023

So now what?

"Few situations, no matter how greatly they appear to demand it, can be bettered by going berserk."

It's important to put all of this into perspective.

This is survivable. It's going to be survivable. Is it tough? Is it a pain in the neck? Does it potentially throw off some of our career plans? Does it maybe stop some stuff that we hoped would go forward and now isn't because of the strike?


Is it survivable? Is it manageable? The answer is yes, it is.

Us freaking out about it doesn't do us any good. What I would say is, Let's try and move into accepting it.

I need to do what I can to be proactive in supporting the writers and keep the focus on myself.

I need to take care of myself, my finances, my family, and especially my sanity.

So let's look at how we deal with panic and uncertainty during this time.

"Don't panic. If panic strikes, we do not have to allow it to control our behaviors."

I don't have to let this strike control my behavior.

"Behaviors controlled by panic tend to be self-defeating. No matter what the situation or circumstance, panic is usually not a good foundation. No matter what the circumstance or the situation, we usually have at least a moment to breathe deeply and restore ourselves to serenity and peace."

Strikes can be marathons, not sprints.

If we panic and we don't look at this by taking that step back and observing, what happens is that we lose our path.

Breathe deeply, and let peace flow through our body and mind from our source, the power that makes the sunshine, the energy that knows best. Our higher selves shall supply the necessary resources.

Let's stick together. Let's take care of each other. And the best way to do that is to take care of ourselves.
