My Journey to an amazing feeling
As I search to find the right words to express what I am feeling, one song comes to mind. Do you know which song? Take a guess! No, it’s not that one. Try harder! OK, it's Bob Marley’s song “Is this love” on auto replay in my mind. Stay tuned for the upcoming attraction in a theatre near you.
This week has been one of the busiest yet most productive weeks in a long time. Things that historically never moved are now moving. I had a meeting with Paul my business partner where I pointed out to him that we’ve been thinking about doing a lot of things instead of just doing them. This statement cracked him up but we both knew that it was true. So, since then I have been in action.
Last week I delivered a keynote presentation to an organization that provides assistance to new immigrants to Canada. This was my third time presenting at this organization, and I have to tell you that each time I am always amazed at the work they are doing. As I was doing my thing, I couldn’t help but think about the movie “The Ultimate Gift” (great movie by the way). There is this part in the movie where someone says, “I don’t know what my dream is, but I know that I can definitely help others achieve theirs” (I am paraphrasing here).
During the presentation I almost came to tears as people shared their dreams with me. As they opened up about their dreams I could tell that they were mentally ready to do great things for their community and for the world. It’s a great privilege for me to do what I do. Thanks to them, I am living my dream as well.
My two business partners were in the audience, and I couldn’t wait to receive their feedback at the end of the presentation. It wasn’t long before I got to hear what they thought about the presentation. “I’ve heard good things about you, but tonight you blew me away”, were the words expressed by our newest business partner, someone whose opinion I respect immensely. She made my day!
It is a great feeling to do the things you love. The good part about it is that, the more you do the things you love, the more excited you get and if you give it time the results always follow.
Now I will ask you the same question I asked the participants at my presentation: If you had all the money you ever needed and did not have to worry about working to pay bills and if you had all the time you ever needed, what would you do? If you find the answer to this question, you have found your dream. It is something you would be willing to do for free and still enjoy.
Now, I went from “Is this love” to Michael Jackson’s “This is it” lol.
Moral of the story? Do you want to feel great all the time? Keep reading my blog and I will keep you posted on my relationship status.
Always a pleasure
