You can only be who you already are

You can only be who you already are

– Steven Pressfield

I love this philosophy it goes against the you can be whatever you want to be positive thinking jumbo that goes around today

If you want to be a singer and you cannot sing then you are not going to become a singer no matter how much you believe you can be whatever

So who are you already

That is the chief task at hand

We don’t know until we know

Sometimes we get whispers in our ear and we ignore them

Other times we stumble on to it through a wide variety of paths

But at heart deep down we are all explorers so even if you don’t find who you are

Get outside and explore

Destiny is something you create

Destiny is something you create with your own 2 hands

We all say it was destined to be

But that’s impossible since the future can change in a moment with each choice and action we make,

It was never destined to be…

And since the future changes with each choice and action we therefore create our own destiny

With the choices we make,

The difference between meeting the partner your destined to be with or not could be sending a message

The difference between getting your dream job or not is through the actions you make…

Whatever it is you want the future is unwritten so take your hands and get creating that future

You are your destiny

Don’t block your own path!

Don’t block your own path!

Build your kingdom, instead of blocking your path.

Garret J White

We all have goals and dreams

We all know what we need to do.

We also most of the time know what we need not to do.

Yet the what not to do is what we find ourselves doing the most.

We order the supplys to build the kingdom then we put a road block in the middle of the path so they can’t get there.

So we are left with the dreams in our heads and the obstructing behaviours in reality.

This conflicting behaviour is destroying us.

Let’s do the work

Let’s build those castles in our mind.

Blind To Possibilities

Blind to Possibilities

When we dwell on a problem, we get stuck in the cycle of the problem, our perspective is just the problem and other problems.

Remaining in the problem, blind us to possibilities.

We need to shift this perspective.

To shift the perspective we need to walk the block and look at it from everyone’s point of view.

And find the desired outcome.

Without shifting the perspective we just remain stuck in a pit and we’ll never grow.

When it’s not on your doorstep

When it’s not on your doorstep

What do you do?

Do you wait until another event rolls around closer to you or do you travel the distance.

I’ve been to several events 100s of miles away from where I live, long train or coach journeys, hotels etc.

At the same time in Facebook groups I see people asking will this event be in X place or y place…

Because they don’t want to travel.

Yet even if it was on there doorstep, would they go?

I don’t know… but the question is if its really worth something to you

How far are you willing to go?
