Share Article

Life is tough, career stress and depression are at an all time high. We need to avoid self-medicating and finger pointing and build self-awareness instead. It’s time to stop the bleeding. Freethinking Renegade Awareness Month is here. You now have 31 days to make a change!

FTRNation.com celebrates the official launch of Freethinking Renegade Awareness Month. This is a time for society to stop the madness and chaos in their lives and start living a more meaningful life.

With the assistance of FTRNation.com, true renegades across the globe will be able to obliterate negativity, look inward and make plans for a better tomorrow. True renegades will use this month to start creating a life of true alignment with purpose and success (the Law of Dharma).

To those already on the inside track preparing for this month, they say that “they expect Freethinking Renegade Awareness Month to be the single most powerful month of their lives”.

Because the entire purpose of this month is to focus on bringing true awareness to one’s life like never before and it is condensed into a series of quests and challenges over one short 31 day period, this movement is expected to take off like wildfire.

According to FTRNation.com’s founder and primary motivator Brian Grasso, “Freethinking Renegade Awareness Month is incredibly powerful. Now anyone can tackle their most stressful issues in life {such as career stress, financial stress and finding happiness / purpose} over a short period and it will be effective. It has to be."

When Brian Grasso recently posed the question “Would you really rather die than never having truly lived?” to his team while they were discussing just how detrimental career stress can be to a person, the Nation was instantly shell shocked. Then when Brian later pointed out the following facts, they were resolved that as a group dedicated to changing lives – they not only had to do something about this – they were obligated to do it in a big way (hence the Freethinking Renegade Awareness Month).

  • According to the American Psychological Association Sixty-two percent say work has a significant impact on their stress levels.
  • According to Northwestern National Life One-fourth of employees view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives.
  • According to St. Paul Fire and Marine Innsuance Co. Problems at work are more strongly associated with health complaints than are any other life stressor-more so than even financial problems or family problems.
  • Even worse: Anxiety disorders now plague 18 percent of the U.S. adult population –- a whopping 40 million people. Only half that number is affected by mood disorders. The drug alprazolam — familiar by its brand name, Xanax — was prescribed 46.3 million times in 2010, making it that year's bestselling psychiatric drug. Prozac, the happiness-and-optimism pill, has been pushed aside by a medication meant to just help you get through the day without collapsing in a puddle of anxiety. Source: Truth-Out.org.

Pharmaceutical Drugs are only one piece to this. The alcohol abuse numbers in America are also shocking. Much of it is related to career stress and massive layoffs are guilty here too.

In more news, recent layoffs sent a shudder down the gold-plated halls of Goldman Sachs, which has slashed 8.5 percent of its workforce over the last year over worries about the European debt crisis and other negative indicators.

Bottom line: It’s time to stop the bleeding! We need to avoid self-medicating and finger pointing and build self-awareness instead.

To kick off this first week of Freethinking Renegade Awareness Month, Brian Grasso and team are tackling career stress in a 3 part blog/video series found here http://ftrnation.com/career-stress-1/.

Anyone frustrated with workplace stress is encouraged to review it and take part in the discussions associated. Everyone is also challenged to ask themselves: Would you really rather die than never having truly lived? The answer for many will differ – it’s what you do about it that counts.
