Things may not appear to be what they are…
As I sit here writing this I am in front of a warm log fire and it is snowing outside. How blessed are we that can do that.
As the storm rages on outside we sit comfortably inside our bubbles of existence separated and sometimes completely unaware of those nearby who are not so fortunate.
Ben, who is just fourteen has come running downstairs on this Sunday morning excited to see that it is snowing outside. How different it would be if he was out on the street somewhere wondering where his next hot meal was going to come from?
As the fire crackles in front of me and the flames lick upwards consuming the wood, (that commodity that is one of the few things that warms you twice), I realise that the storm that rages outside means I have to turn the fire down as the strong wind is making it draw more than usual.
What other things in our lives may appear to be a storm that are actually helping us I wonder?
What are you experiencing?
What are you experiencing right now that you are seeing as a trial that actually, if you stand back a bit and take a sideways look at, could be something that you can take advantage of in a way that you haven’t considered before and that will help you instead of hinder you?
Do you love what you do?
Is what you are doing in life really what you want to do? Is the job you have, what you do to, ‘make a living’ what you love to do?
Stop and think for just a moment and you will know.
If it isn’t and let’s face it, if you love what you do, you will never do a days work in your life, you will know straight away.
The question then is what are you going to do about it? Are you just going to keep doing the same things over and over and expect something to change?
That, I think it was Einstein referred to, as madness!
Sit quietly and ask yourself, what is it that I love to do and if money were not an issue I would just do as much of the time as possible?
Spend some time on this as what you first think of may only be part of the story.
What you do next is up to you. Doing what you love can make you enough or even, more than enough, money if you do it in the right way. Decide on what you are going to do and write down clearly and without ambiguity exactly what it is that you desire to do in your life and if you have a true burning desire to do that then you will achieve it.
There are processes that enable you to do this with ease. Saltori is one of them.
Would you like me to write more on this? Let me know and I will happily do so.
