Sometimes, when nothing is working and we are searching for the right answer, we just need to find our confidence.
I’ve spent the last few years in an Odyssean type journey, complete with Sirens and everything. I felt called to be everything from a teacher, to a preacher, to a medium.
I have finally realized the reason I lost my way. It’s not that my writing and consulting was wrong, it’s that I got comfortable. I mean, recliner and husband who adores me and kids on their own and eat what I want because I’m in my fifties, kind of comfortable. The edge was lost because I backed away and spent my energy on protecting what I had.
I found Mr. Newton’s theory to be accurate – a body at rest really DOES tend to stay at rest. What followed my body was my mind. I looked for work that I could do without threat of failure. And when my husband was diagnosed with cancer, I felt that comfort slipping away. I panicked, leaving my consulting business for the security of a “regular job.”
Every year, as my confidence diminished, so did my success. But, I’m finally back on track.
So, Donna, tell us what got you back on track. . .
Okay, if you insist. Here are three things that happened.
So, if you find yourself with a less successful lot in life, or just a lot of bad things happening . . .
You might need a little confidence. Create your own burning platform. Let your fears slide by. Build it and it will come [notice the phrase isn’t Dream it and it will come.]
And if you begin to think that success isn’t for you. . . snap out of it!
