Was listening to an interesting podcast the other day where the person was talking about staying out of Jail and out of Hell. He was saying the as an entrepreneur we have to break the rules to get to the places we wish. We don’t have to follow society norms and what everyone else thinks you should be doing. As long as you stay out of Jail and Out of Hell, everything else is up for grabs.
I thought this lesson was valuable not only to those who wish or want to be entrepreneurs, but to anybody out there who’s looking to do extraordinary things in the their life.
What is a Impossible Possibility? It’s a moment in time when we have a unique opportunity. But are we recognizing it? Looking at my life right now I’m in a position where I have a Impossible Possibility and it’s truly an amazing gift. But I realized that I myself wasn’t totally aware of this. The power of now is being able to catch yourself where you are right now. Meet yourself where you are right now and live in that moment. Remember that the moment now is the only moment that we have. It’s better to see what you have now than it is to look for more.
As I grow older, I begin to see things in a different way. Money is one of these things. And the more I seem to learn about it, the more confusing or illusive it can become. But ever so often, there are these moments of clarity where I have a thought that makes it all make sense. Realizing this is one thing, but acting upon faith on it, is another.
Telling our stories is one of the most powerful ways that we connect. Being able to relate to one another is a major key factor in creating a powerful bond. Learn about others. Find out who they are. Get to know more about them than “what they do”. There’s something powerful about stories and our unique way of finding ourselves in them.
Sometimes in order to see things begin to move, you have to first make the move. By making a move we can set off a trigger of events that will help whatever we want begin to manifest. Every once in a while we ourselves need a kick in the ass and the same goes for us giving others a kick in the ass. Regardless of the situation, the one thing I realized is that action needs to be done first for motion to begin.
My failures in life have often turned out to be my greatest gifts and wisest teachers. When looking on back on where I came from and where I am today, I can’t help but to be thankful for all of the hardships that I’ve suffered. Not saying these series of events were a good time while they were happening. But all in all they helped me grow. It’s funny how when we’re going through troubles, others can believe in us more than we believe in ourselves.
A stupid mistakes leads to a big realization. Do The Right Thing! Even when you don’t have to. That’s what makes it “right” or “ethical”. Although I felt embarrassed, stupid, and foolish, it also sparked this thought and conversation. I hope that in this situation I did the right “thing” for myself.
How a simple basketball game helped to remind me just how great life can be when we step on the other side of fear. I like this story because it serves as a means to look back and remember past victories that we’ve had. Our story either keeps us caged in or sets us free.
I Left my Heart in Lacey is a tribute to the amazing times and connections that I had while teaching there. It was heartbreaking when I lost my job. My students and the time spent was truly one of kind. I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to spend time in Lacey and for all those that made a lasting impression on me. This short time in my life has left a footprint on my heart that I will never forget. I love all my students there and I always will.
I speak about how and why I came to the decision to quit my job as a school teacher. Although I loved the profession, I wanted a change in my lifestyle. I’ve learned some valuable lessons along the way and had some amazing experiences. The biggest thing was taking that Leap of Faith and actually resigning from my position.
