As I continue to read members blogs I see that I’m not alone. We all want to stay on track but life happens and you must keep first thing first. I realize that I’ve been doing most of this work since I left my comfort zone many years ago, 1981 to be exact.
It was October, I was trying to hold on through December and start a new life in 1982. I was afraid I was going to lose it and so I left earlier.
Packed up a U-Haul and left behind a very, cushion job to follow my bliss. My cushion job was not the most vigorous component I was leaving behind, it was my family, friends and I was engaged in a 9-year relationship.
I read a lot of member’s comments in the alliance area asking what happens after March is over. I believe that’s when the real work gets done.
Its sort of when you go to college most college students don’t know what they want to do when going to class, it’s after the student graduate’s that you must apply what you learn and do everything in your power that applies.
Mostly thinking and acting vigorously. If you only think about it and not act on your thoughts, years will pass you by very fast.
When I started this course I was looking to transition out of my current position into a new position. I found my business in 1995 and I was tired of ordering inventory from overseas, dealing with unfamiliar cultures, communication problems and managing incoming orders and dealing demanding customers.
Two questions were introduced to us this past week,
“What am I pretending not to know?”
“What would the person I intend to become do next?”
These two questions found me last October 2017 while reading Standing Tall. Since then, while I failed to transition into what I thought I wanted, I let go of it.
By letting go of what I no longer needed I received what I desired. More Happiness and more Peace of Mind.
“What was that I pretended not to know?”
That the business I had found, although it was kept small it was enough to be what it will be. Just do it!
“What was the person I intended to become do next?”
Go back and fill my life with what I created and be happy about it. And do it now!!!
And with that being my DMP again my life is now more colorful than it has been in precedent years.
Thank you, I hope you all come to the same conclusion.
I am grateful to know that to be my own boss and work on my own terms is all that I ever wanted. And “I AM” doing that right now.
