What keeps you awake at night
We have all been there. The night before an important meeting or event, it is virtually impossible to get any sleep. A feeling of fear, excitement or joy is keeping us awake. We all remember the night before we took our driving test, our university entrance exam, went on our first date, started our first job, got our first car, bought our very first house and so on. In some cases it was exciting and fun. The mere thought of those wonderful or exciting days may even put a smile on your face.
Imagine though, what it is like when something keeps you awake on a regular basis or even every single night. That’s neither funny nor exciting. It may be due to a kind of fear. Fear of not making it, fear of not getting the job done, fear of changes that are about to take place, fear of losing your job, fear of taking big decisions that have a huge impact on your life and that of your employees. Why is that?
What keeps you awake at night? Why does it happen to you?
Do you have issues at work, for example, that keep giving you sleepless nights? Do you have to deal with things that make you feel nervous, stressed or unhappy?
Here are some examples that others have given:
I work really hard and make long days, but I don’t see any rewards for my hard work. I don’t know why. It makes me feel nervous.
I am really a good employee, but why doesn’t my boss like me?
I am a great father, but my children don’t want to be around me. It is hard for me to understand. I try hard, but nothing seems to work. The distance between me and my children is getting bigger and bigger all the time.
I have achieved all I wanted to achieve in terms of success; I nevertheless feel that something important is missing. The awful thing is that I don’t know what that is. Whatever it is it doesn’t feel good.
