I can’t tell you how many times I hear, “I was rookie of the year” and ever since, the client or prospective client says they have been unable to recreate the experience.
This is because they have been using the same operating system and they do not have a scientific approach to recreate fulfillment from the inside out.
What the client or prospective client does not understand is the motivation to become rookie of the year was based on their ego seeking outside approval and recognition.
The ego never feels fully satisfied from the outside, and no matter how big the accomplishment, the ego will wind up saying, “is this all there is?” Subsequently, this leaves the person unfulfilled.
In this particular case, the client or prospective client that I am speaking to after spending many years trying to create the experience in their business, tries to recreate the experience outside of the business though public service.
While they do good work for the community through public service, at a deep level, they still feel unfulfilled. The need of power to recreate the feeling of rookie of the year that they are trying to meet through the public service has power over them, and is very unattractive to others at the same time.
“I was rookie of the year” turned into, “I could have been a contender”.
