Each week I intend to dispatch my pent-up creativity by creating a new version of something I call a “quotius”. (Learn about the genesis of it here.)
“I’m glad I did… I wish I had.”
I’ve been around long to enough to have learned that life is all about living with the outcomes of our earlier decisions. We become one of two people:
• Someone who has true satisfaction in their accomplishment
• Someone who has regret for things they could have done but never did
For example, once I started down this road of research and discovery concerning human self-belief, I got to a point where there was no turning back. Didn’t matter how hard or difficult it got I kept working at it.
I was hooked.
My siblings thought I was crazy. I wasn’t making much money so they looked justified in their assessment whereas I didn’t.
This went on for decades but I couldn’t shake the truth of the clear vision I had before me. Now every time I work with someone who’s doing H.E.R.O. and they begin to realize that same truth in themselves that’s when I feel validated for taking the path that I did.
Happens every time.
If I have any regrets at all it’s that I didn’t start sooner. This is no truer than in my attempt at becoming a masterful writer. I always thought it would be too much work and, since I’m a bit lazy and get distracted easily, the river of time continued to flow by and now at age sixty two I really need to just get on with it.
Although to this day I have not yet produced an actual book at least I do have one in the works now (and, yes, it is as tough as I thought when you first start doing it).
Years ago I was of the mind that believed that there was a lot of things I couldn’t do. That there are things that just can’t be done (at least by me).
- I didn’t have the university degree
- I didn’t have the money
- I didn’t have the gift of oratory
- I wasn’t an effective enough communicator
- (and on and on…)
I’ve managed to perish most of those old ideas. They really aren’t that useful.
So now, as I start to see things beginning to move forward in my chosen business, I remain more convinced than ever that a deep self-belief powers good decisions.
And I have to say with the utmost certainty of a person who now feels more like a winner every day: “I’m glad I did.”
More power to you.
PS: Have you noticed that a lot of personal development methods no longer pack the punch they once did? Could be the times. I went ahead and invented this simple little brain tweak that makes a huge difference in leveraging your efforts for creating a better version of yourself. Want more? Attend my FREE webinar here.
