How’s it going?
I hope you are doing well.
I wanted to remind everyone I am looking for TWO good positions to be filled at bipolarcentral.com
You can see the details below.
These are h.omebased PART TIME positions. One is for admin and the other is for customer service.
It really concerns me that some people have questions that are clearly on the job description page. Anyway, you can see the positions here: http://www.bipolarcentral.com/careers/
You will indicate the hourly rate you want. BUT, I am looking for VERY good people. Not people who want to make a few bucks and don’t want to take either job seriously. GOOD QUALIFIED people with can do what they say when they say it without 1000 different excuses.
At bipolarcentral.com we can NOT afford to hire anyone who is not serious, dedicated and hardworking.
As it stands now, I am working 7 days a week as a result of someone failing to do a lot tasks. It’s placed a TREMENDOUS burden on me. When things have to get done, and there is no one or someone decides to drop the ball, so to speak, it ends up with me having to do it.
As a result of this type of stuff, I have had a horrible last week.
But it will get better. I know there are qualified, serious, and hardworking people on my list. These positions are so seriously actually that we are marketing them all over the place. They are on dozens of different sites and being marketed to vocational rehabilitation centers across the US.
We are looking for great people. Someone asked me if we are looking for any new writers. We will be soon. But we want writers that can keep deadlines without long stories and many excuses. It’s really sad but some people who w.ork from home do NOT take it seriously. It’s like a hobby or joke to them. It’s really annoying to other people on a team when this happens.
It takes a lot to keep bipolarcentral.com running AND progressing. We just don’t want to stay where we are but we always want to move forward. This is why we are searching for new people.

ON TO TODAY’S TOPIC
Okay, I wanted to tell you about my friend who does strongman competitions and the GREAT bipolar lesson you can take away.
What are strongman competitions*? A typical strongman competition consists of six events. The first three events are used to qualify eight finalists for the last three events. There are about fifteen different events established so far.
The promoter of a particular competition chooses from among these. Many of these events are adopted from traditional, centuries old contests like Scottish Highland Games and the Basque contests in Spain. Variations of regular powerlifts are used to test pure strength.
Some of the most common events are:
Farmer’s Walk, Car Walk, Loading, McGlashen Stones Truck Pulling, Log-Press / Stone-Press, Hercules Hold, Stone Lift, Log Throw / Caber toss, Weight throw, Tug of War, Pole Pushing, Crucifix and Car Rolling
About 2.5 years ago my friend decided he wanted to compete in these.
I was kind of strange to me. The events are really odd. Something I would not be into.
I used to power lift years ago but not any longer. I only body build non-competitively.
Anyway, so my friend signed up for his first contest.
His entire family went, including me.
So we went there and my friend who is SUPER strong, I mean really strong, went through the entire competition.
Guess what happened?
Take a wild guess! Then scroll down for the rest of the story….
He got destroyed. He didn’t do well at all. Despite being really strong and a good athlete he got destroyed!
It was amazing. I couldn’t believe it myself.
He was really bummed out. I immediately saw the problem because of my consulting background and my background with mental health, especially bipolar disorder.
Guess what he didn’t have that you need for bipolar disorder in order to manage it?
Take a guess and then scroll..
He didn’t have a system. That was the problem. I noticed the people who won had systems. What kind of systems?
How to get there and what time (most go there the day before, my friend got there the day of the event…hmmm) What to eat before the competition What to drink and eat during the competition Ways to keep cool How to conserve your energy for all the events
People had special coolers, food, special seats, tents, cooling devices, supplements, special food and drinks.
You could tell that the people who won had a plan and a system. It was kind of amazing.
My friend didn’t pick up on this.
NOTE-They also had great technique. To be a successful person in these competitions requires some amount of strength but way more technique. Usually the smaller guys beat the bigger guys because they had better technique. Some smaller guys made winning look effortless.
Anyway, so I told my friend to ask everyone lots of questions about what they did.
Fast forward 2.5 years.
Over this past weekend, my friend did EXTREMELY well. He is on track to be a major champion.
He has come a long way. He did very well. He took 3rd, which is incredible, and just missed 2nd.
I asked him, “What was the key?”
He said, “I remember 2 years ago you told me about systems and that’s what made the difference. I now have a system to win. I know how to eat, what to do and when to do it.”
When he told me that, I immediately thought of bipolar disorder.
In my courses/systems below:
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
I talk over and over again about the importance of systems.
They are super important. Something that you Can’t just fly by the seat of your pants and do well helping a loved one with bipolar disorder or managing the disorder yourself. I don’t believe this is the case at all.
YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED A SYSTEM AND A PLAN
It’s important to note that you will have like a master plan and sub-plans that go along to helping you with your master plan.
For example if you are a super, your master plan is to help your loved one become stable, productive and be able to work.
Your sub-plan may be, getting your loved one into the “5 percenter club,” finding a job your loved one can do from home and also making sure your loved one takes his/her medication.
You will have 3 plans that lead to your 3 objectives that make up your master plan. Make sense? I hope so. What do you think? I have to go to the gym. I am already tired and the day didn’t even really start. I only got 4 hour of sleep. NO I don’t have bipolar disorder J. Yes I know getting 4 hours of sleep is not good. YES I am looking to change this to getting 8 hours of sleep like normal people J That’s why I am hiring two more GOOD people J
