We, as a family have been working on some things over the last few weeks, small projects and big ones! Planning for these experiences, events, etc. has been exciting and such a learning curve. And, I am crazy excited about the things that are happening. But, I wanted to come to you today, because, as you know, I get pulled in a lot of different directions all at once. This has been the theme the last few years, with the busy, and humbling journey we have been on. Sometimes with a whirlwind of events, you can find yourself stuck in an endless circle of going nowhere. Every one of us has been there, as have I.
Many people will look at successful people and think that they got lucky, or that success and money was handed to them. The fact of the matter is, that statement is completely FALSE! I am reading this great book, “The Code of the Mind Experience,” and about how you have to rewire your thinking. I Think about my life and the progression of my life is that I definitely had to do a lot of rewiring. I was creating my own inner turmoil and my own inner struggle, which led to a lot of external struggle. You know what that means? My external struggle was two really shitty marriages, a business that I lost, struggling with my children, and then came the flat, dead, broke part of that struggle.
I knew something was meant to change…and I watched the movie The Secret. It made me see that I had to be a part of that change, and be the one to do the changing. The things is, is that we have been through so much and I have realized that we have worked extremely hard over the last four years and we have helped a lot of people. But, the first thing we had to do was help ourselves from ourselves. I suffered from self-loathing, crappy self-esteem, and I still struggle with a lot of that today. I have a lot of people, like family that I don’t speak to, close friends and relationships that I’ve had to let go, because I didn’t realize how much they were holding me back.
Now, there is a part of that does regret letting go of people that didn’t serve me, but at the end of the day, I don’t see it as regret anymore. It’s a disappointment. Disappointed in the fact that I wanted so many people to be on this upward path of self-discovery, and that didn’t happen. You know what? The great thing, I realize today that we have SO much to be grateful for! (I write this with tears in my eyes.) My inner circle of people, whether it’s my family or our close friends that we call family now, have helped to get us to where we are today, professionally and personally. We’ve all been through the hard times and good times together.
Bottom line…If you don’t decide to change something in your life today, how do you expect your results to be different tomorrow, the day after, and the day after that, and so on? Get off your lazy butts and DO SOMETHING! Change how you live, change how you eat, exercise more, quit that job that doesn’t fulfill you! You have the power, you guys! Use it! Stop waiting for someone else to do it for you.
