I finished the book! Well I thought I had. Let’s say I wrote the final words I’d intended to write and then the fun began.
Editing, and then rewriting, reformatting. A couple of times over and perhaps again.
It’s teaching me patience.
But it also has provided an opportunity to revisit things within the pages.
Things like the story of me as an 11 year old and the life I had thanks to the sheer hard work and sacrifice of my parents.
Getting hit in the face again by the data that says 58% of us are not investing time in developing ourselves or alloting time for personal development beacuse of daily life stressors.
How money is the most common of those stressors.
How so many of us know what we know and are limited not by money despite the feeling that we are, but limited by our thoughts which are created by a lack of investigation through sheer information overload of the factors that can improve our lives.
We want to strive ahead. But we don’t know where to start, burdened by a perception of a lack of time and resources.
We need to find the intersections in our life priorities. We need to get clarity in those priorites.
In the upcoming book and if I reflect on this journey it does all come down to chapter 8 – which essentially is a chapter aboit thinking about our thinking.
The single most powerful thing you can do in your life to change your life for the positive is to have clarity. Clarity on who you are, how you think, what you want and why, and how all of that impacts on the day to day across all of your life areas.
And the best thing, is that, as you develop and you growm as you have experiences, all of of this is subject to change. And that is the beauty of it all.
You never finish. We, just like the beautful creatures made of star dust that we are, keep expanding, keep changing.
It is always, every day the start of something new, and the opportunity to shine.
