Business Everything Life

Connecting the Dots


I’m completely invigorated by life and its constant ability to change and grow.  Yesterday was the past and today is a vast new opportunity.  Appreciation for every situation, positive or not, is essential to navigating life with greater ease and purpose.  Each lesson, albeit very difficult on occasion, is always a new opportunity to learn.

One thing is for sure, positive energy has a tremendous effect on the psyche.  Love is the truth, passion is enlightening and the thirst for knowledge is never quenched.  Support and spread your influence about what you believe in, passive support isn’t much support at all. When love drives what we do, the real payoff comes from the act itself and not specifically from the reward.

Come alive

Plentiful opportunity knocks at every door.  Moments of great clarity come when I realize I’m free to go a different direction at any time. We can be persuaded and influenced, but our decisions are our own.

Out of nowhere

Business was sluggish one day and a minor panic attack led me on a frantic web search to figure out why my business wasn’t making any money.   Turns out I’d been doing the same old thing and expecting a different result.  The industry had evolved past me.

I looked back at my progress and found myself overwhelmed with immense frustration.  For years I’d followed what I loved and stuck with the “slowly but surely” method, always believing what I’d read from Bob Parsons back when I first got started; “When you’re doing something you love, it tells you all its secrets.”

Just as soon as I came close to losing faith, something reignited the spark in me as I sat wide-eyed and jaw dropped with opportunity.  Something I’d overlooked for years was about to transform my life, my business and connect all the dots.  Just like that, I could build better websites, more efficiently, cheaper and in half the time. That day WordPress found me.

Over the course of the next 18 months WordPress became the most essential tool in my online workshop, became the foundation of my business, took my services to a different level and created a wealth of new opportunities I hadn’t anticipated.

Everything changes at a moments notice and without end.  We can change the world by changing ourselves. Invigorated to grow, inspired to teach, empowered by technology, overwhelmed by passion, hungry for more, ambitious to thrive.

Truth is within, better self = better World. Experience nirvana.
