Now, on with this week’s blog…
How Do I inspire myself?
Excellent question; I’m glad you asked.
(1) I make it an adventure to step out of the known and familiar.
Getting into the restaurant business, with no experience other than eating in restaurants, was a great adventure for me … one that I treasure.
Helen Keller said, “Life is a daring adventure or nothing.” I do not want to hear myself saying (on my deathbed), “My life was nothing.”
(2) I pause to let my true nature (not my conditioned self), make important decisions for me.
I had an opportunity to get involved in sun tanning booths years ago (I met the inventor).
My conditioned self said ‘NO’.
My gut said ‘YES’.
I went with my gut, in spite of all the great reasons my conditioned self came up with that said it was a bad idea.
I made oodles and met some great folks because of that project.
(3) I learned to unite myself with natural Forces.
I used to try to reap the lazy way (early twenties). I didn’t want to go the extra mile. I thought it meant that I was being taken advantage of.
Now, I love giving and giving and giving, knowing that reaping and reaping and reaping is in my tomorrow. I am known as a very generous person. I am also known as a very wealthy person (not only financially but in many other ways).
(4) I rarely set negative causes into motion any more.
There was a time when I would get defensive and even start stupid trouble when others did not agree with me.
There was a time when I would argue to be right until I was blue in the face.
Ah, the insane times!
There, you have it. You asked. I gave it to you right now, with this blog. There is something precious in this blog for you. Which one of the above lessons triggers something inside of you?
Might I share a story?
There was a seagull who flew with the seagull flock, like good seagulls do. One day he got separated – he wondered why none of them liked him. He found the flock once again, and joined them once again … but one day he found himself falling behind at the end of the flock – he wondered why he wasn’t as good as them.
Then a moment came … he went out on his own to make his life an adventure rather than nothing …. and soon thereafter, he found himself leading a large flock of seagulls in flight – he knew the truth – ‘we are all marvelously made and destined to win at whatever we set our minds to’.
This blog should open a small window in your psychic home; did it?
What can you share?
I look forward to your feedback …. Blessings, rob
