What do you do when you have so much to say your voice gets stuck in your throat?
I guess it’s best to start untangling all those voices I have in my head starting with the end of the thread.
So my predominant thoughts today were an imaginary conversation with this one Director who did not “fall in-love” with me during our Skype interview. I felt like a character from the episode of Black Mirror with “grain” replying the conversation in my head thinking, what else I could have said or what I would say if I was given another chance. Well I also spent the day cleaning my apartment, so it is usually the time for those kind of conversations.
Going up the thread was an argument which happened out of care and love I guess. As my mom once said when I was a child, we should only argue with the people we want to be good again, otherwise there is no point. And the argument was about the thin line between “Motivation” and “Manipulation”. This is something I want to talk about and the best way to do it, is a comparison table:
I realize that my chart of comparison might seen quite personal and people tend to need different kind of motivation. However from my experience, especially for me, only the positive approach works and is welcome. I don’t need any negativity in my life.
If you do find yourself in the situation where you do not know whether the person is motivating you or manipulating, the quickest “cheat card” is feel good emotion. If the persons words are not making you feel good, that is not the right motivation for you. After a pep talk you should feel inspired and nothing less.
Cheers with the glass full of elephant!
