It seems that I have more problems when I decide to walk my talk than if I just sit around jabbering like a parrot. More action brings more challenges brings more problems. Why is that? THAT’S EVOLUTION!
The increase of problems makes it seem like I am going backwards, but that’s not true. The truth is that when I am actualizing my aspirations I am living in a world of continual error and my journey is COURSE CORRECTION. Every new action begins with error that needs correction.
To sail from point A to point B is a journey of a thousand zig-zags (all needing a correction). Reminding myself of this ‘zig-zag fact’ has me look at my errors with eager anticipation (a solution is right around the corner).
If action didn’t begin with error, there’d be nothing to learn. What’s the purpose of living if we are not constantly learning how to express our infinite nature in fresh and new ways?
All four of my successful restaurants began in debt. All of my real estate development projects had mistakes that I had to tweak and retake a thousand different ways before I could stand back and say: “By Jove I got it!”
I have a home on the Atlantic Ocean and one on the Pacific Ocean, and no matter which one I am at, there is always something that needs doing. That used to agitate me. Now it thrills me – I’m alive, still growing!
When I realized that I am never going to get it all done and I will never get it all done right – I was able to let go of any ‘poor me’ attitude that was gripping me to any degree. I could clearly see that if I am to put all of myself into life, then it will always be a COURSE CORRECT JOURNEY that I am on. Sweet victory!
Can you share a COURSE CORRECT experience that you’ve had? I will respond to your comments. Thank you.
