The last of the holidays come and gone after today. It was a good time to finally make peace with someone who had made some serious offenses to me and I honestly didn’t feel he deserved my forgiveness yet I offered it anyway and strangely enough, I felt better.
Now in week 12, I had a realization that I shared. It made more sense to me after hearing the “Strangest Secret” where we are told it doesn’t take much to excel and stand out these days.
Earl also tells us that when we add value to people’s lives, we will realize our dreams. I know that I developed an ability to provide a service to others that I had almost given up on. Partially due to lack of persistence but mostly because I had a lot of mental hang ups. The problem is, I figured out that it is my purpose to help people to enjoy their hot tubs.
Why? I am very good at it and many people thank me for what I have done for them. Plus it is very satisfying for me to help these people with something that I find really easy to do. With very little effort and treating this like a hobby, I average about 2-3 new customers a month.
Now I suddenly find myself with no job income. I am not terrified but curious as to how all this will play out. Having the ability to provide a service that people want and need gives me a head start and all I have to do is provide a way for more people to find me.
Perhaps the events are a blessing because as they say a JOB typically means Just Over Broke. Being in a rut of living small has been a prison of my own making. I am thankful for this opportunity and to have a supportive wife.
Now, more than ever, I have a reason to “Do It Now” and success will allow me to give more to a good friend.
