While I don't want to minimize heartfelt frustrations, there's another viewpoint to consider. Some of the most successful (and happiest) entrepreneurs, salespeople, educators, first responders, artists and entertainers I know are lightning-quick-minded. They crave change -- to meet new faces, win the next account, learn fresh technologies, discover and express innovative ideas. They're adaptable, flexible, quick on their feet.
They don't fight their vitality, they use it.
your energy is a great thing.
It's a strength.
And it makes you who you are -- someone who bounces back from disappointment, who can turn on a dime, is enlivened by an unfamiliar challenge, unafraid to pioneer projects. The world needs you to drag us up and off our dusty old couch of outdated rules and regulations, inject humor into boring meetings, help us adapt to uncertain changes, motivate us to new action!
-- WE NEED YOU TO BE WHO YOU ARE!!! --
Also, you have to know that most strengths come with a dark side: empathy can lead to unnecessary self-sacrifice, competitiveness can bring isolation, a strong sense of responsibility makes for many a workaholic. The trick is to acknowledge, appreciate and do our best with what we have, and keep an eye out for over-doing.
One more personal note. There's something inherently cheering about high-intensity people that I happen to love. You're lively. Enthusiastic. You bring the party. The fun! Please don't change.
