I got you going, didn’t I?
So, you may be wondering why I posted that uncharacteristic rant. Okay. Perhaps there were some aspects that you did expect from me.
What were they?
Come on. I know you want to share your observations and insights. You can even be anonymous if you want.
Seriously though, the main reason I posted that was to see how people responded. Yup. That’s me, the mischievous monkey poking your buttons, toying with your triggers, and otherwise attempting to instigate some sort of a response.
Call it an occupational skill set. . .
So now what?
I dunno. Maybe you want to tell me how you feel and what you want to do with those feelings?
So, how do those feelings feel? Would you rather feel something different?
Yes? No? Maybe?
You’re doing great. . .
Yes, it’s just the tele, but why does it poke your buttons? What is it about any TV show or movie or creative endeavor that causes us to become instant critics? Do we base our commentary on our intellect? Our emotions? Whether or not we know the actor, the chef, the artist or the writer?
Yes – it IS about connections! Perhaps it’s also because these sorts of scenarios – or stories – remind us of our own relationships. You know the ones: Family, friends, lovers, spouses, children, siblings, co-workers, colleagues et al.
Could it also be possible that some – but not all – of these pseudo-realistic scenarios remind us of our own goals and dreams?
What’s holding you back from going for it – no matter what it is?
I’d love to watch you cook on Master Chef. I’d love to cheer you on at the local Farmer’s Market with you signature chocolate sauce or cullee or jam. And I’d love to see your novel on the Bram Stoker Nomination List, and yes, the New Yorker’s Best Seller List as well.
So, the next time you’re watching one of these competitive reality shows (and yes, Shark Tank, despite it’s “real life” edge is a major contender), ask yourself if you’re doing everything in your power to bring it into being.
And yes, ask yourself if it would be beyond awesome to have a coach in your corner.
P.S. So, Given the entire season of Master Chef, who would you love to have cater your special event? Whose restaurant would you dine at? And who would you like to share a meal with. Seriously. I really do want to know.
