How’s it going?
Today there’s lots of talk about the economy.
Some people complain about it, but don’t do anything.
Other people blame the economy for all their problems.
And others acknowledge the economy is bad, but they try to do the best they can.
Well, there is a lesson from President Obama that you can learn.
We are not going to debate if what he is doing for the US economy is good or bad.
He said that his plan is to attack on all fronts.
Not just to do one thing, because there is not just one solution.
This is the same with bipolar disorder.
In order to get it under control, you must have a plan and act on all fronts.
You have to work on what I call the bipolar stability equation, because it has all the “fronts” in it that you need to battle bipolar disorder.
Like in my courses and systems, I talk about several elements that are needed for stability, not just one:
LEARN THE SECRETS OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL WITH
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
There is no one single thing that works for stability.
There is no one single medication that is right for everyone with bipolar disorder.
Like with the government. They are trying to fix the economy doing this, that, this, that, the other thing TOGETHER, because there is no one solution.
What Obama does, you can use for bipolar disorder.
Whatever one plan you have might not work, so you better have a plan B, C, and D and not be reliant on one single thing.
Obama has said this over and over that he isn’t sure what the path to us recovery for the recession is exactly.
Now again, I am not debating what he is doing and if it’s going to work, if it makes sense, but what I am saying is that statement makes sense.
He can’t know if something will work 100% guaranteed. So he is trying different things, counting on some of them to work. He has different plans for different solutions.
If he depended on just one plan on just one front and that didn’t work, our economy would never get better. Even at best, it might work temporarily, but it wouldn’t be a solution for the problem in the long run.
You’re going to face the same thing with bipolar disorder, no question about it. If you only have one plan on one front, you’re going to fail, too. Like if you only depend on medication.
Don’t get me wrong. Medication is crucial to recovery (stability) from bipolar disorder, but if it’s the only thing you do, you’ll still fail, and you won’t get better in the long run.
There are still other things you have to do for a permanent solution, like I was saying with Obama.
You also have to take care of yourself and your needs, like he has to take care of the country and our needs.
You have to maintain a healthy lifestyle, like sleeping right, exercising, eating a healthy diet, keeping your stress levels to a minimum, etc.
Just like Obama has all his fronts to manage and keep healthy in the country.
And you also need to keep balance in your life, or you will get out of control and go into an episode.
Can you imagine what would happen if Obama didn’t keep things balanced and lost control of the country?
Just like Obama has to have a plan to make the economy better, you have to have a plan to make your bipolar disorder better, too.
Do you see what I mean?
