You know, it’s not about hanging out in the deprecation room, it’s more about x,y and z happened. Also, a,b, and c happened. These are realities. This is more like hanging out in the reality room. That room where you try to put together pieces of a puzzle. This puzzle is made up from scenarios that occurred where perhaps you felt an emotion. They can be good, bad or mediocre emotions, but you felt something none the less. One must hang out in the reality room every so often to determine if things are going fairly or not. Consider the pros and cons. To also take one’s self back to a place where they realize what matters to them.
The reality room, is much better than the depreciation room. For in the reality room you evaluate things as a means to come to a solution. Usually a positive solution derived from taking a moment to think about x,y and z as well as a,b and c that occurred. You must always go back to revisit things that happened in every area of life. Think about it in business, you evaluate things you do and the outcome from them. You take that knowledge and the feelings surrounding it to figure out how to come up with a solution that works. Perhaps the business grows because you took the time to evaluate, meaning you hung out in the reality room. You don’t sit in a room of depreciation; you are revisiting the reality of the situation.
The best time to visit the reality room is when you have had ample sleep, you feel at your best and things are going well. It is during this time that you can evaluate things that happened in business, life, friendships and so forth in a way that will help bring resolve. This resolve can be moving forward in a positive direction, making proper decisions to have a happier life or strong business. Whatever the resolve is, that little part of your mind that I am calling the reality room must be visited. It is the place to find out what direction to go in so that you can be honest with yourself, and anyone else involved.
Today take time to evaluate things that have happened, don’t dwell on the bad, but use the bad or upsetting times as a means to determine if this is how you desire to live, do business or etc. Make changes slowly, do not try to make a drastic decision, for all good things come with time! That reality room is a place in your mind that matters, it is the only place you can go to when your gut is screaming this isn’t working right. Trust your instincts, follow your heart and remember that anything that’s worth doing or changing will always be difficult at first.
If you are wondering where the term deprecation room was taken from, read The Love Dare. This book is a great resource for anyone struggling within a relationship or marriage. This book discusses how sometimes we hang out in our depreciation room too much when our partner upsets us. It guides you towards being more positive in your relationship. I admit that part matters and The Love Dare is a great read, I also think hanging out in the part of your mind that is reality must be done in order to ensure you keep anxiety low and always make the best decisions for yourself and your family.
