Living outside “The Box!” Doin it when you don’t feel like it!
People often ask me, “Ken, how do you get up and do comedy and present a message of hope on those nights when you don’t feel funny and you not exactly bubbling over with enthusiasm?
I am going to give you my answer in my next blog, but I want to hear from you first. Benjamin Franklin said, “Many men die at 25 and aren’t buried until they are 75.” How do YOU keep from throwing in the towel. How do YOU stay out of “The Box?”
I am convinced that people actually “living everyday life” have some of the best answers to keep “living everyday life” when they are tempted to “box it up.” I am also convinced that some of us authors and speakers miss out on your wisdom because we spend more time creating than living….. SO….
If you are a stay at home mom, I want to hear how you get kids ready for school and coordinate a household and family during those days when you don’t even feel like getting out of bed, days your daydreams run contrary to your reality.
If you are a career person, how do you continue to hammer out the work required when you feel like you have run out of ideas and energy at the same time, when you have lost the passion for your job?
Pastors and spiritual leaders, how do you continue to preach and inspire when you feel spiritually dry and doubt’s shadow flutters at the edges of your brain?
Writers with an empty mind, when your staring at an empty page, how do you fill that page and then another, and another.
How do those of you who are facing a new career, a new family, or a risky adventure move beyond fear and step into the unknown.
Where do you find the strength and inspiration to continue if tragedy has interrupted your life and now you must find a way to move forward.
If I have missed your calling or situation, feel free to fill in the blanks and have at it. If your comments are used in my book I will send you an autographed copy free of charge. But someone reading this may find your insights a great motivator to live outside the box so…
