From A Time Of Birthday Reflection To A Year Of Growth
As I sit here in the middle of the night typing out my thoughts, I can’t help taking a quick glance at my organizer. Flipping the dogged-ear pages back and forth brought back a sense of sweet nostalgic feelings. I remembered just a year ago, on my Birthday; I made my annual reflective recollection in my own quiet time.
It brought to mind how thankful I was for the year’s encounters. I also remembered the friends I’ve made in my talks, trainings as well as those who had engaged me as their personal coach. The contributions they’ve allowed me to make in their lives had helped in my grand appreciation of the world at large.
These fuelled my realization of how complex the entire human race can be, yet how simple the solutions can turn out to become.
Paradoxical, perhaps? Yes, indeed.
And you’ll be surprised how much an irony life can turn out to be.
Nonetheless, to me, it simply means how clear cut I can see the answers to the problems are. These insights now merge into an experience and discovery I’ve deeply treasured in my personal capacity as a citizen of my community and of the entire universe. Hence, I strive to add these values and learning into my work as a speaker and trainer.
In the course of this year I’ve been receiving an increasing amount of speaking, coaching and training engagements. They are often packed back to back, at times running for a series of days. Hence a nearly continuous standing up of 8 to 11 hours a day makes my legs demand that I treat them to a warm massage and a deep healing rub. Despite their lamentations, I carried on “mis-treating” them. But, it’s all worth it.
It’s an emotional high whenever I speak or train! No joke. I’ve never been as serious as now. 🙂
Therefore, this is what makes me grow. I’ve discovered that: When I’m doing what I truly love, it’s all worth it!
Ok, I know some people will exclaim, “But I’m not doing what I love?!!”
Then, my friend, it’s time for you to reflect, and find a reason to love what you do. And you’ll start to grow too.
Complex problem, simple solution.
Merry Christmas to you!
