Guest Column: The Life of the Individual is Paramount…

… despite all the static and interference out there now

RappoportThe tsunami of election news and fallout has created much confusion out there. People are exhausted; they’re running and hiding; their uncertainty is spiking; their cynicism is kicking into high gear; they’re trying, in some cases, to dumb themselves down…

This always happens when a large event is resolved in favor of one side, but doubts remain about the winner. It’s as if the lights in the stadium went out during the last quarter of the Super Bowl. What happened? What’s happening now? What will happen?

People are even forgetting they have lives of their own. And that’s what I want to return to. Because, when individuals park their own lives, they’re bound to experience disorientation.

General issues raised in the presidential campaign have stimulated questions that individuals ask themselves: do I want to be free? How free? Do I want to take control over my own destiny? What are my true goals? Where am I going?

These and other similar questions are, of course, quite valid. And yes, answering them can cause an upheaval.

And the life of the individual is paramount. What difference does the course of the nation make, if the individual loses his way, if most individuals lose their way? After all, this nation was founded on the basis of liberation of the individual.

I suggest that the disparity between where a person is headed and where he REALLY wants to go is at the core of the confusion he may be feeling. This disparity has arisen time and time again in my consulting work with private clients.

It doesn’t resolve by turning away and ignoring the gap. It doesn’t resolve by pretending the situation isn’t real.

The presidential campaign featured two candidates who had very different visions for the future of America. Those differences caused many people—if only at a subconscious level—to question their own vision for their own future.

What’s the compromised vision? What’s the real one?

What’s the vision that would get me out of bed in the morning ready to go, filled with energy and excitement and optimism?

When a person sacrifices THAT, he’s operating from a severe deficit. He’s filling in blanks in his life with rationalizations.

The notion of serious contemplation has become foreign in this society. But serious contemplation is exactly what is needed, if the individual is to change course and move in the direction he really wants to pursue.

This is not a side issue. This is a central issue. This is the big one.

Understanding that fact alone can restore equilibrium. And then, self-engagement in discovering what the best personal vision is becomes the next adventure.

No amount of static and interference floating in the air these days justifies backing away from that adventure.

The life of the individual is paramount.

The founding principles of this nation were engraved to emphasize it.
