Ever since I can remember, I’ve been in a hurry.
When I was little, I was in a hurry to grow up. When I got (a little) older I was in a hurry to get married. In a hurry to become a “professional”. In a hurry to become “successful”.
I’ve always been impatient - looking for shortcuts and hacks to short circuit processes. It is only as I write this I realize two things:
1. Nearly all of my “failures” were a result of trying to short circuit the process.
2. One of the few “successful” times followed a period when I realized short circuiting was not serving me, so I circled back to do the things I’d tried skipping over previously.
And now I recognize that I’ve become in a hurry again. largely in a hurry to build a successful business that helps others, but far more importantly, in a hurry to crack myself wide open and become as enlightened as possible, as quickly as possible.
I was recently reminded by my coach and mentor that life is not an event, nor is building a business. Both are and must be a process, for every learning along the way strengthens the foundation.
Sometimes the hardest thing is to simply stand steady and allow life to flow - to me, around me, away from me - as if a rock in a stream.
I love this journey of self awareness - keywords as follows:
I find it makes all the difference in how we measure ourselves, judge ourselves, love ourselves, love others and allow others to love us.
