New York, New York

 

New York—a place of culinary delight, the city that never sleeps–and unfortunately today, shut down and holed up because of hurricane Sandy.  Well she may have been worthy of “Greased Lightening” but this kind of disaster is not welcomed with a Pink Lady slumber party!  Our best wishes and tons of positive energy being sent to all those suffering the effects of Hurricane Sandy right now.  It also prompts me to say ” Are you living the best life you can?”  Did you actually wake up this am grateful for shelter, food, and health?  I didn’t and I feel convicted saying that.  We should all strive for happiness every day–this day could be our last —  Simply become who you are and get on with your happy self!

The Flipping Point

Our good inspirational friend Seth Godin had some rivoting words in his post this am entitled “The Flipping Point.”  Dark clouds may hang on us all at times, but we can work it out.


When people say, “The tipping point,” they often misunderstand the concept in Malcolm’s book. They’re actually talking about the flipping point.

The tipping point is the sum total of many individuals buzzing about something. But for an individual to start buzzing, something has to change in that person’s mind. Something flips from boredom or ignorance to excitement or anger.

It starts when the story of a brand or a person or a store or an experience flips in your head and it goes from good to bad, or from ignored to beloved. The flipping point doesn’t represent the sum of public conversations, it’s the outcome of an activated internal conversation.

It’s easy to wish and hope for your project to tip, for it to magically become the hot thing. But that won’t happen if you can’t seduce and entrance an individual and then another.

Before the tipping point, someone has to flip. And then someone else. And then a hundred more someones.

We resist incremental improvement in our offerings and our stories because it just doesn’t seem likely that one good interaction or one tiny alteration can possibly lead to a significant amount of flipping. And we’re right—it won’t. The flipping point (for an individual) is almost always achieved after a consistent series of almost invisible actions that create a brand new whole.

And the reason it’s so difficult? Because you’re operating on faith. You need to invest and apparently overinvest (time and money and effort) until you see the results. And most of your competition (lucky for you) give up long before they reach the point where it pays off.

 

I think of my home page on AngelaMD.com when I read Seth’s inspiring words.  If I hadn’t reached my “Flipping Point” in those dark times last Feburary, I would have remained plagued by boredom and ignorance.  It isn’t easy to pull yourself out of depression, but it is opportunity to free your mind of the baggage.  Grab on to what is important to you and allow your faith to direct you into a new reality.
