I am going to start a movement that will inspire you to aspire higher, to try higher, and to live higher. It all begins with recognizing the many ordinary, everyday gurus that come your way to offer you life-lessons.
Are you looking for them? Life is forever offering you another guru to help you solve your problems or take your life to the next level of happiness and success.
For example, while walking around the Jamaica Pond yesterday with Shakespeare perched on my shoulder (my parrot companion of 34 years), a young child stepped up to ask, “Is he your friend?” I told her that he was not only my friend, but my teacher. She immediately asked, “What did he teach you?”
Wow this conversation got heavy quickly! I responded that he taught me to be more patient. She said she knew what patient meant and that when she’s patient when asking her dad for something she gets it. She added, “But if I’m not patient, sometimes I have to go to my room for a time out.”
Thank you, thank you, thank you, life.
That was an everyday guru sent to remind me that when I insist things go my way quickly, when I am impatient with the outcomes I am getting – sometimes life tells me that I have to go to my private space (inward), and take a time out. To examine what I’m doing that’s not working, and come up with a better strategy. I have to stop being impatient with the world and start looking at what I might do to cause the effects I desire more effectively.
How about you? Did an everyday guru visit you yesterday or today? If your answer is “No,” I can assure you the guru showed, but you didn’t notice. It’s a new way to look at your life – knowing there are gurus, gurus everywhere. Your level of awareness of them attracts more and more of them into your life.
If you’ve signed up on my email list – I am going to start sending special guru lessons I’ve learned that have helped me tremendously with advancing my life to higher levels of happiness and success. It is my way of saying, “Thank you” for being part of my community. I appreciate you.
My Margaret Book (And Then I Met Margaret) offers 21 great short, inspiring stories that point to how rich with gurus my life has been, and how much they have helped me with my journey. Some of the lessons those gurus offered took me years to learn. I was a slow learner back then.
