it’s been awhile – in my mind – since i’ve written you.
i started to feel some guilt over it, as in “i need to write you again” in a blog post.
but you didn’t even realize i was ‘missing’ and hadn’t written you for awhile until i came back and told you i was missing, right?
i made up all the “i should write” guilt in my own mind.
all your guilt and “shoulds” you make up in your own mind. you create it all for yourself.
- i should look for a new job
- i should start a business
- i should work more/harder
- i should make more money
- i should have more fun
- i should be a better parent
- i should write another blog post
- etc etc etc
sometimes it is better to take action and do something (like writing a blog post).
sometimes it is better to do something “internally” to tell the ‘guilty voice’ in your head to SHUT UP… maybe literally, or by going and playing, by meditating, or whatever your own practice is to retrain your mind…such as studying and practicing patience. (patience is such an under-appreciated quality, in both life and business!)
no matter what, guilt is toxic and the more you can let go of it, the happier, fearless & more productive you’ll be.
i’ve been working for years to create a “guilt free zone” in my own life and in pebblestorm. it’s a ‘great work’ in progress
i would love to eradicate guilt…but in the meantime, like an unwanted visitor, i’ll settle for letting it visit less frequently, and when it does pop up showing it the door faster.
speaking of which, in a couple of weeks i’m re-opening the Unique Genius Superhero Program. the Program is actually a bundle of four courses (“Light Your Fire”, “Discover & Declare Yourself”, “Make Your First Dollar Through Your Purpose & Passsions”, and “Make As Much Money As You Want”).
so if the idea of creating work around principles like patience, baby steps, trust, fun and integrity is appealing, 1) keep an eye out, and 2) check out the training videos that are up on www.UniqueGenius.com.
you can make money through enjoyment!
in gratitude ‘n’ good stuff,
