The Rat Race

The Rat Race

The Rat Race, we’ve all heard the expression, and I expect we all have an idea of the meaning it conveys. To me it means a struggle and more importantly a struggle that one will never overcome.

To put it succinctly, The Rat Race is a race you can’t win. It’s like the horizon, or perhaps a mirage. You move towards it, but never get there and you wonder why you bothered or perhaps worse you start looking for another.

If I ask, “What is it like to be in your Rat Race” what would you say?

Have you ever said to yourself “I  have to ……… or else ……….”

If you find yourself saying that and it doesn’t feel very comfortable that might be a clue that something is wrong with your thinking.

If you would like to get an idea of how to get rid of that feeling, get out of the Rat Race and still have the things you want, we might have the solution for you.

It’s a course called “A Course for a Happier Life ~ The Power of Self Esteem” and it’s starting on the 23rd September 2019.

Your Money or Your Life….

Your Money or Your Life….

The expression “Your Money or Your Life!” has often been attributed to Highwayman in the 18th century. A masked man pointing a pistol would ride up to a traveller and make that demand. He meant give me your money or I will kill you. A sobering proposition.

Latterly this expression took the form of a joke that went something like this….

Highwayman: Your money or your life!

Victim: Take my life, I’m saving for my old age!

I always have found this joke funny, but also ironically sad.

How often do we postpone something that would do us good now, for some unknown and unquantifiable event in the future?

A Course in Happiness, The Power of Self-Esteem is happening on Monday 23rd September. With a preview evening on Monday 9th September. Don’t delay.
