Guys, Gals, Friends, Pals, People I may not even know are here… Lemme let you in on a heavy issue facing my daily routine…
I have become disturbingly, chronically, unhealthily: Passive Aggressive.
And It’s Bad…
You see, this lifestyle of mine (That I LOVE!!) affords me the opportunity to Study.
I have been in a constant study for the last 4 years, and in the most recent 10 months, it’s been solid.
I’ve told you here that I read lots. Books on self development, spirituality, business, living richly and so much more.
I haven’t told you that I listen to hours and hours of podcasts per week. Zig and Dave and Rabbi Lapin along with other seminars that come along through email, and so much more.
I have a membership to the Free Agent Academy. There we work through dynamic programs of inner-development. Our individual Calling and tons of other cool concepts leading toward an awesome existence of self-employment and free-agency are explored, and so much more.
Also my scholarship to Philosopher’s Notes is used regularly to immerse myself in the classic literature. This includes new-age ideas, ancient religions of various types, successful rulers, poets, scientists, inspirers and so more.
SO! Why am I now suffering?
Of all this information that I have immersed myself in, I have found many common themes of success.
I can pinpoint in a quote or story or a song, when someone has hit on the Universal Truth of the Way of God.
The Way of God is about enlightened living, constant growth, gratitude, courage, contentment, faith, success in service to others and Yes; abundant wealth too. (this is a really, really short list!)
It comes in many names and types of explanations. It has been recorded by thousands of people and events throughout history. Those who’s words we read today, because they were people of such importance, that their ideas have lasted thousands of years, lived and loved these principals.
Now – I hope that you’re still with me 🙂
I believe in the truths of Unlimited Potential we are capable of! And, I am, at this point, a keen Noticer of the traits of success.
I want to see them in You!
I want to see them in Me!
I want to see them Everywhere!
I have the Truthful Understanding that we All have an Unbelievably Powerful Intergalactic Rockstar Energy inside each and every one of us! No One Is Exempt!
I would love to keep typing all through the night and day, never skipping a moment, using every fiber of my being to share and encourage and inspire and quote and combine these ideas with relate-able real-life stuff that You could possibly connect with, in some small way, even just a beginning way 🙂
However, I’m heartbroken with myself that I am currently only confident enough, to share that stuff, as enthusiastically as I do, here in this format. In real life, as mentioned, I have become disgustingly Passive-Aggressive about it all. I let the opportunities go by, and then resent myself for doing so.
You see, the everyday conversation, of too much of the world around me, is less about the awesome possibilities we have every day on this spectacular planet, and MORE about What is Wrong With It.
Honestly, I used to be a bona fide Professional in that sport! How glad am I to know now the wastefulness of spending my precious time on negative self-defeatist and critical-of-others thinking.
As I type this, I am participating in the exact thing that is shutting me up, and bringing me down by recognizing and criticizing negativeness around me.
I am therefore, caught smack in the middle of a growing-pain in my life.
I will, at some point soon, be strong and confident enough to share or discuss or let slide off of my Rhinoceros-thick-skin, the comments and conversation of people that only seem to want to discuss the why-nots of life.
Wish me luck, this is a BIG TOUGH DEAL for me 🙂 And I am weighing myself with the same stone, as I also still slide into that mental muck on occasions…
One spark of brightness? I’m pretty sure, that at the headquarter office of K and G Cycles, the nickname given to me by my co-workers is “Sunshine!!” 🙂 they haven’t said it specifically, but I’ve heard it a few times…
YES!!!!! AHA!!! PROGRESS!!!! At ma’ old job – Attitude was always on the list of areas to improve…
I’m sure you can relate on some level to speaking or hearing the complaining, the clever-criticizing or the pre-forecasted failure of something before it ever has a chance to succeed.
I confidently can tell you this: In NONE of my studies of success is this a trait that is Ever present in someone who is about to kick-booty and make a positive change in the world.
That, my friends, IS what I would be thrilled to become. As a conduit for God to use, at some time in my life!
I would love to hear about the things you Are For, and the Cool Dreams and Goals and Aspirations You Have!
Just FYI – a healthy respect for money and living without borrowing it, IS on the list, even from ancient times… not one of the great philosophers or religions recommends using payments for purchasing anything, and yes Debt has been around that long…
So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! For hanging around to hear these words!! It means so much to me to be able to share this honest insight with you 🙂
Tomorrow I begin a weekend trip on Sterling that will let me add to the ‘ol A Shell and A Stone blog. Can’t WAIT to tell you all about a weekend on the motorcycle with my Love, Lindsay!
Please keep me in your prayers as this life-long journey of self discovery unfolds. I need you dearly my friend, this life experience is a Team Effort!
