Destiny Says You’re at the Life Stage You Should Be At
Take the time to stop comparing yourself to others because when you compare you set yourself up for disappointment and the belief that you’re somehow behind or not as successful as your neighbour. Destiny says you're at the #ProudLife stage you should be at.
Let me elaborate…..
At 20 I was still living with my parents, goofing off with my friends, smoking pot, sitting around the pool all summer and working part-time while attending college. — I was exactly in the developmentally appropriate place of life I should have been — as my life story was meant to unfold.
That 20 something context was no longer appropriate for me in my 30’s or beyond.
As I look back at every decade of my life I would change very little, despite the growing pains. Yes hindsight is 20/20, but in retrospect I’ve come to accept that my ups and down, successes and profound failures are what’s shaped my character to the man I am today.
Had A, B and C not happened I would not have reached D. — it’s as simple as that.
As at this writing I am experiencing a beautiful September Fall day here in Toronto. I’ve just spent the last 5 months doing fine carpentry and other upgrades work on my sailboat. Totally ignoring my online world with no outstanding client commitments to serve.
An uninformed observer could conclude I’m not succeeding at my business. — being a slacker. A wise person would say I’ve just spent the last five months being exactly where I should be. — taking a well deserved break from one project while passionately focusing on another. Project one pays the bills while project two consumes all my money. — Sailboats are money pits for sure! But project B sets the stage to make money next year as I live, work and play from my sailboat and sublet my apartment to someone else — there both connected.
I would gladly spend my last dollar and breath tinkering on #Akiya. (my boat) 6 months of the year!
If you and I had a conversation right now about your life, I’m fairly confident in the end you would conclude that you were at the right place, in the right time, doing the right thing.
Often it’s more a matter of articulating your alignment and comparing that to your actions. Gaining the self-awareness that your outcomes are related, directly or indirectly, to your intentions. You are what you manifest. Manifest love and you get love. Manifest drama and you get drams etc……
This summer I spent over $10,000 on upgrades to my sailboat and made ZERO from my practice (yes I said zero).
Thank god my investments (no debt and lots of savings and wise financial planning over the years) have done well to support my lifestyle THIS summer.
Unless I shift my focus to new capital revenue generation activities I’ll have a financial shortfall next summer. That’s what ZERO effort into my coaching practice gets me if I don’t come up with a practical solution soon.
Don’t get me wrong. When I do have clients I over-serve and strive to exceed expectations. When I don’t have clients — i’m also good.
Winding down my practice for the season gives me the time and freedom to take on new creative endeavours.
In late October when I haul my boat out of the water I will shift back to my practice and accept a few new clients. Then in December and January 2017 I’ll be a relative guest at a Brazilian beach house, immersed in a new culture trying to write a book. I’ll be exactly where I should be and aligned with my higher purpose on a conscious level.
My advice to you is to NOT ask if what you are doing these days is the right thing, but rather to ask if what you are doing is aligned with your higher purpose?
Do you even know what your higher purpose is? Most people don’t. I certainly didn’t for the first half of my life! If you do then bravo!
So man people are subconsciously going through the motions, reacting to whoever the universe throws at them?
It does not have to be this way. With an extra self-awareness and skill development you can make the shift from to-do lists and achievement to alignment with a higher purpose.
