successful vs unsuccessful

success and unsuccess

 

I saw this meme on Facebook and it struck such a chord with me that I wanted to share it with you. I actually learned something about myself and that is that I actually do all of the things on the green, successful side, except for the To Be List. I also do some of the things on the yellow unsuccessful side. I can be critical sometimes. I absolutely hold grudges. Sometimes I fly by the seat of my pants and I watch tv everyday, except when I’m on assignment working. When I am in the field working I don’t watch tv at all. I’m not sure if that means anything, or not.

Rather than use this meme as a way of feeling superior about myself in comparison to others, which is sometimes the intent of memes like this one, I will use this more to improve the parts of the yellow side that I see in myself. I will also strive to be 100% on the green side, but with the knowledge that it’s okay to slide over to the yellow side occasionally. As long as you’re aware, you’re doing okay.

  1. Yeah, I keep seeing this pop up as well. Everything seems to be “mush” lately. This gray area that my feet have been wading in looks like pea soup; it’s what happens when these qualities blend and mismatch! Ah! The funks and humps that we have to climb up through and crawl over.

    This is definitely a good reminder and inspiration. Cheers!

  2. What is a “To Be” list? Like, To be more compassionate. To Be more generous? To Be a better person?

    Hoo, boy. I see 3 things in the yellow that could use some of my attention: flying by the seat of my pants, not knowing what I want to be and not setting goals. They’re somewhat tied together, hmm? I also see some others who live on the yellow side 24/7. They cannot be helped, sadly. They cannot even see the green side. And never will.

    I like, “Watch TV everyday”. That was my main hobby when I was younger and depressed. Television is so full of characters celebrated for being on the green side, I can hardly watch it anymore.

    The “To be” list is a great idea.
